Buy a cheap KLR for the commute, keep the XT for the weekends. Ask Masterchief or anyone he's ridden with.

Year round riding here. Just get good gear.

If you are going from Tacoma to Bremerton than you will be going over the Narrows Bridge. Lot's of wind in the winter. Heavier bike would be better. 225 will do okay.

I commute the opposite way on the same roads.

Would I do it on my XT225? No Way. I have no desire to be an obstacle on the highway.
