I like great tires. I like great gloves and armored riding gear, and farkles that improve my experiences. I love the feel of riding well executed. But what gets me out there still is seeing the sights... primarily natural landscapes and their inhabitants. Just got around to looking at some collected sights I had forgotten.

As long as I can see, I like wet-day riding. The WR250R is an incredible dualsport. Well-designed, as potent as a no-upkeep 250 can be. Hope someday Yamaha does a WR450R with similar tuning. For me that would probably be about as close to a unicorn as anything else.

Wow, beautiful area! I would love to tour through the mountains like that!
Yeah, I have a lot of variety in my day-or-two riding radius. Any 200 to 400 miles day is good for riding variety and visual diversity. Lots of mountain ranges, Glacial Lake Missoula stuff, the Rocky Mountain Front, which these next ones are..

Lots of great photos, @greenboy! I hope to visit Montana and enjoy the beauty in late June if the BMW MOA annual national rally in Great Falls continues to avoid cancellation. :cross fingers:

Waiting to see the thermometer hit 32F after a 16° early morning, knowing that it's likely to go from totally sunny to a cloudy 40F high. Still want to ride though. Somehow looking at an image from an expansively warmer day made me forget that any ride today would not in any form be that way. Nevertheless, one can dream...

I noticed as I was putting in an air filter, and later again when I decided to get my frunk latch/lock working if possible, that Honda engineers missed a few opportunities to put more nooks and crannies in to scoop up insects and dirt. Also it seemed that there were a few places where they could have introduced connectors with different head types and sizes, sizes they had missed, so that a person could feel that a lot more of their tools were being put to good use. It seems their attempts were half-hearted – enough so that I really can't boast about the immensity of my tool roll compared to a tool cache for an armored troop carrier or whatever. What gives, Honda?!?
