PNW riding

Good morning everybody, Iím a little late posting this intro but itís getting done now!

The name is Hank. I reside in Camas WA, with @Naffle whom beat me to doing her intro post.
So you all have been introduced to her bike and the pups.

I started on dirt when I was 11 or 12yrs hold and been hooked on motorcycles since.
I am currently the proud owner of a 1981 virago 750 project bike, uncertain which direction Iím going to go w it.
A 2014 Boulevard M109r and a brand new 2019 Vstrom 1000xt adventure.
The boulevard was beating me up quite a bit on the 400+ mile days so decided I wanted an adventure bike for the bulk of riding.
This machine is an absolute blast to ride can hardly wait to see where she takes meFA8F9FF7-62F6-49C1-852C-C74CCC310F4B.jpg

Welcome, these are great bikes for our area. Wife and I put 50,000 + on an LC1500, one test ride on an 07 DL1000 sold me on this style bike.
Still have a cruiser in the garage, but it's sits a lot more than the vstrom.

Welcome to the forum (from about 300 miles north of you).
That blue color scheme is fantastic. Had I not found such a deal on my 2018 Yellow 1000, I would have gotten that color. #jealous
