I live in Toledo WA, and I have never been on a tour with other bikers. I grew up on an Island in AK and I taught myself to ride. I am building a Yamaha XS1100 with fairing, and saddlebags. It has a small special tank though. Only about 3-4 gallons. I should have it going (charging problems right now) around March or April. I am looking for a short, trial ride, with some advanced riders.
