Had a terrific 8 day road trip with the wife in the throne of my 2015 Honda Goldwing. Calgary > Kamloops > Mt Vernon > Astoria > Portland x 2 > Yakima > Whitefish > Calgary. Used the Port Townsend Ferry. Spectacular views, roads generally excellent except the National Forrest 25 and 99 (Mount St Helens area) which had rough sections (35-50 km/hr at times) but I'd do that again. Willamette Valley wine region was nice. A couple nights in Portand to rest and enjoy was a good idea. Shout out to Spin Laundry Lounge in Portland for friendly unique experience. Mount St Helens well worth the time. Mount Rainier cloudy so check weather before going to visitor centre. Longest day 750 km; shortest day 300 km. Fire prevented Going to the Sun highway on last day so went through Eureka and AB 22 to get home. Happy to answer questions. JPS
