    Looks like you had an adventorous ride! The gear I normally buy is from Revzila or The Bikers Den. I mostly order gears online.

    The forecast was for mid-70s, so John and I took off north to head for Semiahmoo. I've never been there before, and the name sounded great.

    This is the general route.




    As luck would have it, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival was on, and we got to pass by some beautiful fields of tulips in full bloom, with more to come in a few weeks.







    The green plants to the right are tulips, just a week or so away from blooming. It smelled pretty.


    On the way out, to Anacortes along the coast.






    Washington Park, Anacortes. We ate our lunch there and sat talking and taking in the scenery for about an hour.






    John, on a beautiful black ST1300.




    We got to the end of the Semiahmoo Spit and found out how some other people live. Funny, we didn't see the owners. I guess they were working to afford their toys.

    I went to Centralia, PA ghost town. It was the town used for the Silent Hill movie town. An underground coal fire was started in a trash burins incident. The fire has been burning for decades and the town only has 10 people left in it. People visit the town and graffiti the street.

    Yesterday I put in a 291 mile day by taking the long way across to the road to Skye.

    Cluanie dam in the background (road kill in the foreground )


    Loch Cluanie


    Took a left at Sheil Bridge and rode up the bealach to catch the views . . .
    The view towards Skye and the Cuillin hills


    And in the other direction Loch Duich from the view point


    And the 5 sisters . . .


    Then the “Must do” photo when passing this place . . .


    Viewed from the other side of the inlet


    291 miles and according to the bikes ‘puter it only supped 14.9lt of fuel.

    Took the bike out for a spin up north. Hadn’t been down to the end of the road beyond Ardgay for some time so decided to pay Croich church a visit, it being Sunday an all!

    Heading for Ullapool and found a gate that is normally shut & locked open . . . so down the track I rode till the end hove into view . . . at a small dam & sluice controlling the flow of a small burn/river

    I went to NEWSTOC with the ST-Owners group last weekend. The rally is held in Seven Bays, WA at Todd and Kari's place.

    Wenatchee River just outside Leavenworth.


    Steamboat Rock on Banks Lake


    Leaving for breakfast on Saturday morning. I'm in the middle of the pack.




    Lake Roosevelt












    The motley crew. We had 22 riders show up at Todd and Kari's. The "garage" is actually a hanger. It works perfect to bring all the bikes in for the night.


    Some of the group exchanging tall tales of things they've done, or wish they had done.


    There's a free ferry system to cross Lake Roosevelt at various points.






    Lunch stop overlooking Grand Coulee Dam.


    Chief Joseph's burial site.


    Riding home on Sunday next to Lake Lenore. Those cliff faces remind me of some giant warriors overlooking the river.



    Soap Lake






    Dry Falls


    If you're ever in the area, this is a place worth stopping to look at. "Climate Change" is real. During the last Ice Age, Lake Missoula formed. At one point point, the waters broke through the ice dam and came down through this area. The falls were five times the width of Niagara Falls, and the water pouring over was 10 times the current amount of water in all the rivers of the world combined today.

    The Columbia River


    Did you notice how wonderful the sky looked in the pictures above? Now this is what was on the west side of Snoqualmie Pass.

    A blast across the Yorkshire Dales to Harrogate, it was a needed journey rather than a jolly, with weather like this who would not want to be on two wheels:-

    In the Garage 2013 BMW F800 GT,1994 BMW R80 RT,1986 BMW R80 GS,1999 Yamaha SR125
    Sorley missed Honda TLR200
    Enjoy the ride
