You know, you are better off on here telling people you don't care that you don't ride safely than trying to explain how its "not that" dangerous..... People on this forum will chew that s*** up and spit it at you.

Just do you! I'll watch good videos, I don't care how your riding.

Just outside of tacoma wa man! You from the area?


I lived in Issaquah for 3 years when I got out of the Army. I live in Los Angeles now but when I lived there my buddies and I would regularly ride Highway 7 and hit up 504 to the St. Hellen’s observatory. The best riding I’ve ever experienced has been in the PNW, I love it up there and can’t wait to move back.

Haha! Yup! This is alder lake area! Highway 7 is our mulholland. LA is better though IMO..cali people are way more laid back. But im the same - army brought me here. I ended up staying though. Im only 30mins from this section of highway 7, so i ride it all the time.

Highway 7 is much better than Mulholland in my opinion. Mulholand is so tight there is no reason to take an R1 out of first gear. 504 is still by far my favorite road. If you haven't done that ride yet, do it, you will thank me.

Yeah man! I’ve been to mulholland in a car, it sucks compared to 7...tahoe is dope if you ever get a chance, not much highspeed shit, but the views are nice. Me and my buddy planed to go ride in socal, but fires, so we ended up in tahoe instead. I’ll google 504. Anywhere in particular?

Angeles Crest Highway is so much better than Mullholland. It is where most of the bigger bikes go.

Google Johnston Ridge Observatory. It is the observatory for Mt. St. Helens, there is only one road up and down to get there, that is Highway 504. It is a bit of a ride to get out there so I suggest making a day trip out of it on the weekend but I garuntee you will do it over and over once you see it. It is a good 45 minutes from bottom to top of very wide road, long sweeping turns, perfect pavement and incredible views. Once you do it a couple times and know the road, you can easily stay over 100 mph through most of the turns, except for a couple that are a little more tight but legitimately I believe there are only like 2 of them where you need to really get on the brakes. Plus when you get up to the top you can go up to the observatory and the view of the mountain is incredible.

I enjoy these videos a lot more when the rider can stay in their own lane.

Don't get me wrong, Im a hoon and I didnt buy an R1 to cruise around under every speed limit, so Im not criticizing the speed - but leaving your lane on a corner is a sign you're going too fast for your ability.

Bike does sound good though, what pipes you got on it?

Graves man! And yeah, no worries, just us pushing it a little bit at the end of the day - for youtube ? we don’t really street ride unless it’s in the canyons. And this road is “our” road! Thanks for the comment though!! Ride safe!

31. Medically retired from the army. Deployed many times, faced death more than most. I’m in control the whole time. But i made this video for people to react..and it’s great.

Thanks for posting the video. Looks like a great road.

Not sure what to say about your riding. It's usually a good idea to stay on your side of the road, especially when there are double yellows. Saying you're in total control only makes it worse.

Take care. Please.

Many many retired and active duty on this forum to include myself. I wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of the active members here are over the age of 31. I know Ian and I are. “Snuck another one in there @Redgecko

Personally, I’ll probably never get medboarded. My nuts are too big for that.
