Thanks guys, will give updates. I haven't ridden on the road yet since I don't have a tag but have ridden in the woods behind my house. It's amazing how even though she is "big boned", it still maneuvers fairly well in the trees. Even still, there is a LOT of motorcycle there. Time will tell. Still have the KLR for the rough stuff.  :ricky:

Next question is, will you be able to fit that 10-gallon IMS tank on there?  haphap

I've had the hots for a Super Tenere for a few years. Have been able to avoid scratching the itch until this week. I needed a toy under the tree so I picked this up on Chrismas Eve. My first Yamaha

Onward up the Columbia..... I guess this is Mt. Adams, at the time it was "Mt. ReallyCoolMountain", now I'm trying to put a name to it.  It's north of Hood River or thereabouts, if anybody can help me out.



On up the river.  I thought this was a really nice little place, in this alcove. 



Along the way... windmills.  I like these things, besides the good-energy aspects, they're gorgeous engineered, very efficient things plopped down in some very natural land.  I like the contrast.



A barge on the Columbia.  Looks like they go clear on up to Idaho.  Leaving the Columbia now, but we'll kinda see it again, the Columbia goes north, but the other half is the Snake, comes in from the east. 



About to leave the river.... I just thought these were cool hills.



On to the dryland of SE Washington.  Maybe this is considered the Palouse country.... if you go to WikiPedia, there are lots of different ideas about it.  I'll settle it here and now.  This IS the Palouse.  Dryland.... stuff..... I suppose some is wheat, some is dirt, dunno what the green stuff is. 

But I thought it was an amazing landscape.





Camped at the Lewis and Clark State Park, NE of Walla Walla.  Pretty nice, had some evangelists come in about three times, but they were nice folks.  We exchanged ideas respectfully.



Onward, another windmill.  Those blades make me think about sailplane wings.  I think they're about the same thing.



Up just short of Clarkston WA / Lewiston, ID.... long after the Columbia had branched off with the Snake River.  Barges go this far up, first the Columbia, then up the Snake.



Stopped in Clarkston at a great Honda shop.  I did something dumb, figured the chain was good for the trip.... nope.  Stretching bad, downward spiral, got a cheap chain for a replacement if worst came to worst.  Nobody had sprockets for to do it right.  No more will I "figger it's good enough to get by" on a trip.  Nope.  The rest of the trip had this sketchy "will it last?" cloud hanging over it.

Good place to stop here, as Part 6 goes into something really stoopider, and it deserves a part all of its own.     -laf   :rollinglaugh:

Well, hey, maybe we should start planning a ride! The NMBDR looks intriguing...  :think2:

And wow indeed... I lived in Springfield for a number of years, and if you've ever bought gas in Oakridge there's a good chance I was on the crew that installed the gas station fuel tanks. But I haven't spent much time in K-Falls... I think we did one (gas station tanks) job there, not even sure of that.

 :beer:

NMBDR? You bet.  Son Trev and I did a portion of the UTBDR, pretty neat.

Gas in Oakridge? Maybe the crummy driver bought some, I was trying to sleep in back (good luck with that).   :rollinglaugh:
