Hello, I live in Washington and ride in the rain a lot (it's that or a cage). Washington drivers seem very aware of and considerate of bikers, unlike some other places I've ridden. I moved to Washington from Arizona in 2008. My wife and I really enjoy the water. We left one son and a granddaughter in Tucson and have another son in the Navy. We are very patriotic. In the interest of keeping to the forum rules, I'll leave it at that. I first rode in the 70s when I had a 650 Yamaha. I'm on my 2nd Road King Classic and ride to work any day there isn't black ice on the roads. I look forward to meeting some other serious and fun-loving riders on this forum!
