sounds like you still beat the odds though, given that it rains consecutively around Forks area almost 2/3rd's of the year. Did you have a chance to check out Neah bay?
I have pics, but have not yet taken the time to load them. Gotta work sometime....
Squishy did his RR here

The 990 is not yet back, they needed to order spokes for the front rim.
Apparently riding it all this winter and never cleaning it has allowed the salt spray crap to pit the shit out of the chrome on the front spokes. It did not effect the rear spokes nearly as bad.

Well, we nailed the even odds.
We had nice weather for 2/3 of the time up there.
Friday & Saturday were very sweet, and Sunday it rained ALL DAY.

I did not pay attention to where Neah Bay even is,
I did not navigate this trip (but maybe I shoulda, with all the turnin' around we did ).

Saturday night's rain hit us moments AFTER we got our tents set up. No Problem .
The heavily moss covered old growth soaked up ALL the rain & kept us dry all evening on the picnic table.
But, I was absolutely soaked to the bone, riding home on Sunday.
