hey, this is sort of nuts, but im about to fly to washington state, buy a bike, meet up with a good friend of mine sport-touring out there right now, and ride back with him. anyways, a few things

if anyone lives anywhere on or near a route going from washington to wyoming, to colorado, then back across to virginia and can help me with anything im looking for, let me know

r6 tail fairing
r6 headlight or just the headlight lens for the right bulb

looking for saddle bags or other riding luggage
first, looking for motorcycle boots, size 10 or 10.5

and also, this is kind of random, but ill be looking places to campout, so if you know of any good and relatively cheap places to camp, let me know, even if its your backyard.

last, any roads you recomend, or places you recomend seeing, let me know. ill be leaving washington state either late saturday night or early sunday morning.

Sounds like a blast. Cheap places to camp=anywhere you can pinch a tent and hid the bike in my experience. I'm so jealous, I'm trapped on this 30 by 40 mile island. No new roads no real room to stretch out.

My uncle and I rode from Chicago to Seattle and back to Tuscaloosa Alabama for my 16th birthday. Me on a ZX-9 and him on a 916. That was pretty grueling but a really great trip. LOTS of looking for the most convoluted rodes throught the mountains and just carving it up.

Can't help you out with what your looking for, but that sounds like a blast. My mother's uncle comes all the way to MA from Las Vegas every year. He keeps telling my father and me to ride back with him. Some day, I'll do it, even if he does make fun of me for riding a "crotch rocket".
