The non rainy side. I have friends in Redmond and Orting the rainy side I hope July will be nice.
Good luck with your new windshield , you know it's just the start but with just a few things out there for the Trophy it's a short list of needs or wants.
I had a rock hit my OEM windshield it left a little spot with a small spider crack so I got the larger OEM windshield it really stops the bugs.

July is a good time to come up here ( Western side).  If you haven't yet, take a side ride on the Olympic Peninsula.  It's good riding.

I'm looking at Mount St. Helens area , I have not been there yet.
I have done some backpacking in the Hoh Rain forest a few years ago and a few years before that I was backpacking around Mount Rainier.
The Gifford Pinchot National Forest around roads were my concern and we are looking doing some camping and a short hike on the Pacific Coast Trail.

Another really beautiful area and great roads for riding is at the Blue mountains up in N.E. Oregon and into Idaho and Washington, we rode up and stayed for a week and using a rental cabin as a home base. We are really lucky here in the PNW to have the riding areas that rival any other area for the cooler temps, awesome roads, really friendly locals and beauty that is unmatched and variety few can approach.
Here in Idaho, there is a pretty good % of m/c to car during the "season" and as a result there are many motorcycle-centric things to due state wide.
The Olympic peninsula is an area that we have not yet been to, but it is on my list for later in the year, or summer of 17 if we don't get to it this year.
Have fun and be safe!
