Got the new 240 on yesterday and the 30 tooth pulley. I should have done the pulley years ago. Great mod. Planning a trip into Washington this weekend before the season winds up.

Yep, Those are the 3 best mods- 30 tooth pulley, Ivans Flash and 240 rear tire. Exhaust and Intake are 4th and 5th.

It is great with the flash. The bike is so much smoother now. Once I wear in the tire a bit, I will be able to give it a real pull on the throttle but for the first 100 km I have ridden, I am a happy guy.

Went to DC with my son this past summer. It was a beautiful ride, you will love it.
Safe journeys.

Actually, I was referring to Washington State. Great trip and fantastic scenery. Rode south from Vancouver to Whidbey Island and took the ferry across to Port Townsend. Cool place and would have liked to spend the day but had lunch and moved on. Rounded the Hood Canal and stayed overnight in Bremerton at a decent motel on the water. Rode up the peninsula Sunday and took the ferry from Kingston to Edmonds and then back up Hwy 9/I5 home. 800 km round trip and a lot of fun.

I was in Anacortes on the 22nd for the Oyster Run. Not a great weekend with the rain Sunday and Monday.
You should try the HWY. 101 loop one year. But take your time and try to spend overnight at Ocean Shores. Well worth the trip. I usually do that coming in from Port Angeles out of Victoria and do the loop. You can do it in a day, but it's nice to take a leisurely ride and enjoy the sites. There's only a small stretch you are on the freeway, the rest of it is pretty nice to ride and beautiful places to stop along the way

Gave her a bath and buttoned her up for the winter. 4 months till riding season starts again. :(

I think she is going to get a new battery in the spring. The bike is a 2012 and it is the original one. Sometimes it struggles to crank.

I also think I will flush the brake fluid in the spring since it is original and she rolled over 42,000 km this year.

Cleaned up my 2011 Raven last night with my buddy Jack
Took it in for some new tires today, went with Metzeler CRUISETEC 240 in the rear and the matching front. I had a Metzeler Marathon previously in the back, it was a good tire, could have lasted longer.

Took a ride after getting the tires put on, up and around the neighboring lake(s), felt smooth. Liked the front tire and the fit with the low and mean fender, much more space compared to the Bridgstone's.

Sucks about the discontinuation...

Wiped the bike down with ACF-50, put a cover on it, and moved it to the front of the parking stall spot.

Then went out yesterday and added a Vancouver Island dirt road special to the stable!

After a ton of research I picked up a WR250R for logging road/winter riding. In the spring, I'll flip the plate back on to the Stryker.

Man, this little thing is fun to ride! Plus, it's a Yamaha. So... it's awesome.

Awesome!! Love it.
I've often thought about getting a "winter bike" and going the same route. But I've put that off because I'm thinking my next bike will be an adventure touring model. That's the only thing keeping me from following in your footsteps right now

I too have thought about this or an adventure bike but sadly, the idea of waking up the next day with more aches and pains than I know what to do with keeps me on the street.

Replaced the original 8 year old battery with a fresh one and started her up. Man I miss that sound. She cranked over super easy vs the old battery so it did not owe me anything. She might get on the road in a month or less depending on weather. Fingers crossed for an early spring and crews get out to fill the pot holes quick!

Turned some triple tree spike nut caps today on the lathe. Made them from 6061 aluminum and they are held in place with set screws.
