While the MT-10 has gotten all the road work so far this year, that changed on July 20, when I took Warchild-wife on a 3-day blast around Oregon and Idaho. 

Geared up, ready to roll Thursday morning, July 20:

Picked up a 2023 PNW-GT Location along the way - the Tollgate Store:

First night was at the Ponderosa Motel in Enterprise, Oregon:

Up and at it the next morning, here she is cheerfully indicating I am Number One as we prepare the ascent to Hell's Canyon Overlook:

Early afternoon arrived in Riggins, Idaho. We are hot. Motor is hot. Everything is hot.

We put these Bridgestone BattleAx T32 tires to the test for 3 days - they were definitely up to task:

I actually like these tires over the Dunlop RoadSmarts - when carrying wifey.  For me, the T32's don't have the treadlife the RoadSmarts do, but their dry grip is just phenomenal and inspires road confidence. 

We have another Western blast-o-rama planned on the Tracer for early  August - Wildhorse Viewing in northwestern Montana!
