Not on a Versys, but these two lads' adventure may give someone an idea...

If you ever start taking life too seriously, remember you are a talking ape orbiting the galaxy at 446,400 MPH on a deteriorating organic spaceship.

Thanks for that, E.T. Great pics and a bit of nostalgia for me as well. The KLR was the twin to mine, and some of the roads had my tracks on them.  :008:

Brilliant ET, thanks.
I did the same route as far up as Vancouver Island.
Crater Lake is amazing plus the Olympic peninsular.
I took the ferry across from the Olympic to Vancouver Island.

Don't worry, Bart, I won't post a pic of the RD250 currently in Fowlers' showroom either.  :2:

That looked like an amazing adventure for the two young fella's!!!! :123A:

I've also been up there as far as Vancouver,Canada then around the Olympic Peninsula & it is pretty amazing landscape, but l did do it in a 32ft RV/motorhome with a DR 650 strapped to the back for getting to those places that a 32ft "barge" couldn't reach!! :008:
