Need Opinions/Guidance For An Upcoming Ride

The wife and I have a wedding in Snohomish, Washington around May of 2019 to attend. We'll be leaving from Bend, Oregon and want to make it a little more exciting than just sitting on I-5 and dealing with Portland and Seattle traffic.

I did a little digging around at and came up with the following route plan. Not sure if we'll make it a straight shot or stay over somewhere. Any and all opinions and experiences are welcome. I've only been in the area for a couple of years and don't know the roads North of us very well.

We'll be riding pillion on the Multi 1200 DVT.

Planned Route:


2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200S
2013 Ducati Hypermotard SP - Traded in for a younger beauty

I wish I could be more directly helpful but I agree with you that I5 is horrible (congestion) and boring. My eastern WA trips have been more east and quite enjoyable. However, if you post this to our DesmoNorthwest club page on Facebook (just go ahead and ask to join the FB page), I'm sure you'll get some good insight.
