Nice!!! When I read 'kawasaki' I thought maybe our picked up a versys, but that's a nice 650! I wish I had a hard bag setup for the speed four, but found some nice Nelson-rigg that serve the purpose

Did you trade in the old bike?

Ride safe! Nice purchase

Still have the old bike. It sits in a garage.

We had actual sun yesterday!!!!

Image

Hmmm.... the road ended.... what now?

Image

Image

This sign means good things be forthcoming for motorcyclists!

Image

Paved road again

Image

This stretch of gravel was annoying... freshly laid and unpacked, like riding in sand.

Image

Image

Anyone for a swim?

Image

And down back to civilization

Image

With high water...

Haven't ridden that far south yet... one of these days.

It's an interesting way to get around a freeway parking lot!

Ah, the Californians get all the fun! :D Not that any of us have ever have shot past a rush hour parking lot on the shoulder... 8-)

Westbank Dayz, in the bike show with some of the gents from the classic motorcycle club!

Then continuing with the road trip!

Image

Rolling over 18K somewhere between the border and Wenatchee

Image

Hood canal floating bridge

Image

Random KLR at Cape Flattery

Image

Small tree, about waist high

Image

Twihards are probably (removed) in their chair wishing they could go here... I only stopped long enough in this over-franchised town to take a pic of the sign

Image

Ocean view!

Image

Ready for the late night 80mph freeway ride into Seattle!

Image

Almost home!

Image

Not bad.... 3000kms 4 day trip from Calgary to Cape Flattery, around the 101 and back!
