Located in the beautiful Banana Belt of Roseburg Oregon, only a short hope to Creswell.
Ride an 03 Green B12s with hole shot pipe, stage one, fender bob, Dales great flush mount turn signals.
Wife rides on the back with her expensive corbin seat and back rest.
Trying to get her to let me buy an SV 650 (ulterior motive) but she prefers to be a passenger and enjoy the ride.
Will making a number of trips this year, really need to get up north to ride with our northern brothers and sisters.

I'm in the Puyallup/Tacoma area of Wash., home of uncontrolled subdivisions and urban sprawl.  Luckily, I only need to motor about 70 miles south to get to good riding areas.  I have a '97 B6 but with a daughter born 10 mo ago riding time has been reduced.  I still get out to my favorite areas, mainly St Helens and Chinook pass over to Yakima wine country (I can fit 6 bottles in my tail pack).  I should have a little more time this spring/summer so keep up the posts if anyone has good ride plans.

I live in Edmonds, just north of Seattle, just south of Everett. I've got a 26 year old SR-500, a 20 year old BMW car, a 15 year old yellow dog, and my 2001 b12s in Stunning Shimmering Silver  :banana:  :banana:  :monkeymoon:  :banana:  :banana: !!!

beautiful Candy Velvety Maroon
:stickpoke:  Whatzattabout  :duh:  it's red. maybe with a bit of metalic but red. You know, the loooong slooow waves. Whattaya "beautiful Candy Velvety Maroon 01", nope - it's red01 right?

Tell ya what, if we organize a cruise down Broadway we actually might do better if we  pass the bikes off as "Stunning Shimmering Silver" and "beautiful Candy Velvety Maroon 01", otherwise it's silver & red. Nice try though!

Oh yeah, and sometimes I get out for a ride w/ red01 here   :beers: .

Steve

Yeah I can just hear the dialogue at Ma & Pa's Fill 'em Up & Go now, "lookie Ma weez got us one a dem red soozooky scooters at the pumps rite naw". "Pa yew simple jackass, can chew see that is a beautiful Candy Velvety Maroon scooter if ewe ever seen one, dumass"  :lol:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's red... but it's beautiful. Suzuki's the one that gave it the name Candy Velvety Maroon... not me.  :monkeymoon:

Steve, when you see the ass end of a silver bike as much as Paul does, you have to make up fancy, uppity names for your bike to make you feel better.

Anyway, I ride an '02 B12S in silver. I live about 10 miles from Paul.

Yo, I got a 03 B12s, been reading Bandit Alley for awhile but just started checking it out more. Any rides in the near future Id be up for. The bandit is a great "naked" bike. I love the torque and HP, burns the shi* out of harleys, BMW and the snooty like....

Ampster!...That is a beautiful shade of red, no doubt.
I'm off in the lower end of Clark county..Washougal WA.  Home of the Nationals level MX track that they won't let me set foot on with my YFZ450 because of AMA's insurance restrictions :crybaby:  :boohoo:
Picked up an '02 B12 in Silver last week, it has the stock seat so I'll probably have my butt modified for comforts' sake :wink:
I've jumped out on Highway 14 a couple of times for a cruise, but I don't have the gnads for I-5.  I'm eyeballing a run on 101 later in the year though.
I was drinking at the time...so ya, I mighta said that.
IT'S ONLY FUNNY TILL SOMEONE LOSES AN EYE...Then hey! There's a free eye out there!

:welcome:

We just had a ride down in your neck of the woods a few weeks back... on the east side of St.Helens. I ended up doing a 5 hour drone up I5 in the rain to get home when we were done... now that part of the ride SUCKED!!!

I'm sure we'll be doing that run again during the summer... the roads around there are too mch fun not to!  :bigok:

We should try the ride again after Labor day weekend.  The crowds die down and the weather is usually better.  Snows are long gone and the road moss is gone too!  I've gone as late as mid-end of October and had a great time, open roads with no one around.

Greetings from the Ferndale area.  I have a silver '02 B12 that's bone stock.  It's my 5th bike and by far the best.  I've put 11K miles on the bike since I bought it new in 2003 from Everett Motorsports.  I'll be going over the N. Cascades on 7/23 and then on to Spokane.  Anybody want to join in?   :motorsmile:
