Thank you to Manny at Burnaby Kawasaki for fitting a pair of Z6's to the BMW, all for a fantastic price. These were the one brand of tyres I had stayed away from after using a cross ply pair in the 80's.

nice article out of Road Runner magazine, which discusses the pros and cons of riding with others vs riding alone. as an oft-solo tourer, I found the author's points relevant and resonant.

I've got some old biking friends from UK that are thinking of coming to do an Oregan trip with me.
Does anyone know or have any experience with motorbike rentals (sports or sports tourers) either in BC or Washington that they would recommend?
I get the impression that many of us on here love touring on our sportbikes, and so perhaps it's time to have a sticky of links and resources. I know there are no shortage of websites dedicated to this, but for those riders newer to the scene and the sport, they may not be fully aware of these...
