Thumbs up More bald-faced lies.......

The latest issue of Rider Magazine is once again touting Washington State as a tourist destination....Gentle reader, this is a shamefaced attempt by Utah and California to divert tourist traffic and congestion away from their beautiful picturesque and sparsley populated roads where temperatures are a balmy 75 degrees and sunny and gas cost $.99 a gallon up here to cold, rainy and congested Washington, where the roads are so beat up you need 4 wheel drive to check the mail, gas cost $18.99 for regular (when you can find it),Rednecks in beat-up pickups regularly take pot-shots at motorcyclists for sport and volcanos and earthquakes erupt at frequant intervals.

I've had the sad misfortune to be trapped in this nightmarish place most of my life and I've never even seen those roads, they are surely taken in the picturesque state of Utah and flagrenty peddled as Washington State for the simple intent of luring then robbing unsuspecting tourists as they cross the heavily fortified border of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Washington

Don't fall for it!!!! fore-warned is fore-armed, do yourself a favour and visit Utah, Oregon and California....Trust me, you'll be thankful you did !

LOL I agree. My ride today was totally miserable. Rain, wind, traffic, straight and flat roads.. Went up to Issaquah via the back roads I-90 motorsports was having Triumph demo rides today...I ride up to the XXX drive-in to look at the classic hot rods and cars on Saturday's. They had the Speed Triple there, Sprint, and a Scrambler I think.. I chickened out on testing the Speed Triple cause I was afraid I'd want too badly afterwards.. Going to Paradise tomorrow.. Probably will rain again and traffic will be bad as well..Sure like the looks of that Daytona.. be a good step up from the Ninja I think..

also be warned that in Washington the roads are often littered with sticks and other debris which can cause you to lose control of your motorcycle...

Well, I can't answer for every area of Utah and what might happen there. But I do know where the bouncing betty's are buried locally. So if you punks feel lucky......
