I'll troubleshoot that another day, must ride today...

I posted in the 1500 section about an intermittent no-start issue I'm having and I was going to start digging into that today, but when your son calls and wants to go on a ride with dad, well, you go! Fortunately it started fine for me today.

Ugh I hate posting pictures of myself, especially selfies but here we are fueling up, I'm rocking the Goldwing of course and he's on his CBR600RR. I was trying to get us and the bikes in the pic.









Winging it every chance I get :)

It was good weather (sorta) in the NW this weekend....wife and I headed to the coast in the "cage" to visit peeps, pick up some stuff, and ramble on back. Believe my bike will be on the road next weekend, getting warmed up for the upcoming season ;)

Ron - yep, it was dry out and relatively warm when we were heading out but a couple hours later it was getting pretty cold!

We went a little north of Smokey Point, up I-5 to the Chuckanut exit and up and around a winding road. I don't know those roads very well but my son does since he works in that area. It must be a popular motorcycle route, we passed many motorcycles cruising on that road.

Mag, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you when I'm passing through your area, a beige Goldwing with a short tinted windshield should be easy to spot. I'll be the guy with the red helmet and hi-viz vest like in the pic above and no front disc cover so I should be easy to spot too!

Glad to see you out riding with your son! I ride with my son every time we get the chance. I bet that you had the more comfortable ride though. But some of these young guys have an iron butt. Enjoy your times together while you can. :)

That is a deal....as much as most people on this board are from other states, we should be pointing at each other and saying "That is you!!!" when we go by, lol.
