I just got back from an annual trip into the States. Six of went, tents & sleeping bags. We went from Calgary AB to: Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, BC and back into Alberta. We did 4335 Kms. We rode the twisties from a top Lewiston, Hell's Canyon, the Fossil-Shaniko 218 highway, Oregon coast highway 101, up through Washington into BC. The trip was awesome. Unfortunately leaving the Oregon coast a buddy on a Buell hit a deer. We patched him up, got his bike running and rode to Portland. He flew home from there leaving his bike at a Harley shop. Surprisingly he has no broken bones. His bike will most likely be written off.
