Awesome report. Having an F800GS myself, this is very instructional. Thank you for such detailed report with pictures. I wonder how it will be when I'll take some road like that with my gf, on a single bike

Any relationship that can handle this type of ADV riding will last forever.
Thanks, that is sort of my style. I think it's the Engineer in me to tell it like it is

Sorry Alberto was logged into my computer and I didn't notice!

All that crash carnage adds character to your bikes ,looks like your rim took a beating as well...

The 'difficult section' was indeed difficult for us. But for other people (and maybe on different bikes?) is not really that difficult.

Thanks for your kind words we try to make of every ride we do 'one to remember' and have a good time doing it

Agree! streaming in the woods would be sweet! but we actually stayed @ a KOA with Wifi the night before and were able to download the whole show. The excuse of staying @ the KOA was to 'take a shower, do laundry, eat a Subway and charge our electronics' but really what I was looking forward to was to: 1) download the MotoGP Assen race and 2) download the UFC

I have really enjoyed your ride report. Great pics, and I love the work that you put into recording your struggles with the difficult section up on Umtanum Ridge. That was a fun section.

I saw that you included a link of Mike and Erik's RR, but I put another together of my own. Check it out!

See you guys on the trail!
Hey amigo! nice RR you have put together it looks like you guys also had a blast doing the WABDR! Looking back, the 'difficult section' is what makes a ride a memorable one. Fortunately, Naomi's shoulder is almost back to normal and our bikes look like true 'dual purpose' bikes

Great seeing you guys on the trail too!
Cheers Blane!

Great to 'see you around' MrKiwi! When you make it up to Canada, you have a casa where to crash

You are most welcome! and you got that part right: 'to each their own' we all have our own style of riding and way of enjoying our time off the saddle

No, all the ALL the photos are first rate as well as your write up of your trip, which makes this a great Ride Report. Thanks for taking the time to post it. And take care so it can continue.

Unfortunately the stock F8GS rims are known for being on the soft side but we agree: our bikes 'look' like they have been places

For every photo that we post there here there are many that don't 'make the cut'. One way of improving your photography skills is to snap as many photos as you can BUT at the same time trying to get better and better photos each time. I, like most, didn't take the best photos when I started shooting but got really inspired by the many riders that post top quality photos here on ADVrider. I read about what they do, how they do it, what equipment they use, etc and went out there and tried stuff myself. I still plan on taking some photography lessons in the future (never done it before) and get my skills to the next level.

Thanks for the comment though!
