Comments: No nearby dealers (my garage is the next best local thing); enthusiast, sport-tourer, tools, parts, storage space, assistance (friendly; money isn't everything), room??? bedroll space??? camping space. Truck?? Distance??? Try me; lots will depend on our situation at the moment. Wonderful local roads, plenty, lots, rippers, colours, places, many nearby destinations (mountains, lakes, rivers, hot springs and all the accompanying pleasures and sports, winter & summer). Beautiful country to ride to, in, through, whatever.
