I took up motorcycle riding 4 years ago, though I’m not an everyday rider. 4 years ago I bought a Yamaha XT250 to learn on, and get me to places near where I live that I couldn’t get to in my jeep. I can carry enough camping gear on it for a weekend trip. It does that job fairly well, no complaints, but it’s just not up to the task of getting me to places farther away.
There are countless places I’ve wanted to explore that are within a day’s ride of where I live in central Washington state. So earlier this year I bought a new bike that would make those rides more enjoyable. A 2016 Triumph Tiger 800 XCx.
I’ll be posting more about it, my camping gear I’ll be using, and the trips and photos I take this summer, stay tuned.
