Great combo of trailer and truck. Wonder which is worth more. Trailer...

 

You mentioned the West side of Back Bear, well, for a greenie, I thought the 'steps' were beyond my skill set. Might of gone off the edge... :ohboy:

 

I don't know Larry it would probably be close.

 

If you've done Corkscrew and California you could do Black Bear, the only difference is yer going down instead of up : )

Gorgeous scenery.  Some of these roads are amazing on the GSA!

Thanks Steve good to see you back. They really are, there's some great scenery and have ridden all that stuff in the past. The last three pics are a bit tricky to get to on a GS though, or even a dualsport at least from the east side. I'll let them chime in if they want but I think @Whip and @lawnchairboy would concur : )

But, someone has to pay the bills.

I agree completely, from the east it would be a Beeyotch to get a big GS up there.  I had to pick up my DR near the top, it took me 10 minutes to get my breath back and make it to the top.  It is pretty steep and rocky and loose.  Whip was down at least 4 times that I know about on his KTM 500 on the way up, once he put the front end halfway up a tree.  But we were following Dave so who knows.

Taken on Skyline Road lookout . That Eildon Reservoir in the back ground  . The Eildon- Jamieson Road , is nice little stretch of tarmac that is about 65kms of tight corners,  between 25 and 40km/h advisory speed . The RT handles this beautifully. 

This is central Victoria  , Australia  .

I did Corkscrew in my Tundra, don't think I would be trying Black Bear with it! I also did Corkscrew (down) on my CRF450X, with no front brake!

It isn't so much Corkscrew or California but unmentioned Hurricane Pass you have to deal with  between them, it's gotten really rocky the last few years and is no cakewalk especially west > east which is how most ride it. And comparing the abilities of a stock Japanese pickup and a KTM 640 is ridiculous. Some Monday photos : )

Four years ago, Laney and I bought a short-sale in Port Orchard, Wa. The location is incredible!

Alas, growth, traffic, crummy roads, and continuous yard work is driving us away. Please follow along for the next few months as we downsize, pack and say goodbye to the Deck With a View

We will do some riding too!

You will miss those views!   Hope the move goes smoothly and that you and Laney will indeed have more time for riding.   Hope to see you both at a BMWST event sometime soon!:18:

Besides the view there are five marinas and a Navy Shipyard providing entertainment.

The Dungeness Spit. A 6 mile walk if you go all the way to the end

I've never seen as many birds as there are in the Olympic Peninsula
