First bike trip across washington state

Taking a road trip from Edmonton through Washington up to Abbotsford and then north back to Edmonton. Just kind of curious about how hard on bikes the police are in those northern states. I heard the roads are nice and curvy there and wondering how conservative I have to be on the throttle?

What route are you taking? Which roads through Washington are you hitting? Weekends are typically worse than week days here.

I realize this is rather tardy, but Hwy 20 across North Cascades Nat'l Pk is lovely. It's one of those roads that feels rather different going E->W vs W->E. Hwy 3 in southern BC makes for a very nice loop. Word to the wise: WA LEOs don't write warnings. If they bother to flip the lights on they're gonna issue a ticket.
