The road that leads out of Seattle down the EAST side of Rainier and Mt. St. Helens is a great way to head south. Then you need to decide if you are going to go down through California or east through Idaho and Utah. Both have wonderful things to see.

My recommendation would be to head east, catch the Wasatch range in Utah, cut through Price and over to Moab UT to experience the Arches and red rocks then east again into Colorado past Telluride and into Ouray. Over the Million Dollar Highway down to Durango. Once you catch your breath there, Cut southeast through Santa Fe at which point I assume you'll be in familiar territory.

Let me know when you plan to leave Seattle, I'll ride with ya to the Oregon border, show ya the sites and buy the first round.

Red Iguana in Salt Lake City is worth the stop as is the Moab Diner in Moab (great breakfasts!)

He meant contiguous, ya airheads.. er, oilheads?

seriously though- all these suggestions are great- me? I'd boogie over 2 from North Seattle, 97 to Ellensburg, 12 to Wallawalla, and 84 to Boise for day 1. After that you're on your own- my back yard ends thereabouts...

i'm the other guy

greetings from the Afghanistan. Its cold and snowy. Anyway, we'll be picking up my bike I bought off my brother before he left for new job in Berlin (2002 R1150R). Other bike is a 1200GS
we'll be starting on Whidbey Island (the parentals live there). My thought was something that ends up in Montanan/ Wyoming/ Yellowstone/ Colorado/ then back to flat-ass Texas.

Anyone done a trip that way yet?

Best Route

Great trails out there. The Cascade Mts. are fantastic. If you have the time, just pick a direction at a junction and ride aimlessly. If you have to backtrack, the scenery is always great from another direction/perspective.
Whatever!
Have a great ride.

Ride Safe & Enjoy the Spirit

lol.....

Forgot to add, if you need anything when you're in the Wenatchee area, PM me. There's also an ADV gathering in Enterprise, Oregon in mid-June. The area is worth visiting for the scenery. The campground we stay in has a great view of the Eagle Cap mountains.
