Ran When Parked

2012 RVA Overland - I'm a fan of most of Clay Rathburn's bikes. This one very cool and for sale if you have have a fair amount of discretionary income. The price is really not that unreasonable if the quality of his builds are as high as they seem to be.

San Juan Islands

Olivia enjoyed her first trip the the San Juan Islands. I rode a lot more than I took pictures. We met Wayne Rainey's cousin and saw more bald eagles and deer than I could possibly count. We also saw a raccoon, a wild turkey with hatchlings and a seal. Saw very little traffic and some fun twisties. I squeezed in lots of time with some incredible family members as well. All-in-all it's a pretty cool place. I so wish my brother had been here with his bike.
