I'm considering another trip to my home state next year. Still in early planning but during research I found this site.

http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/WABDR

My question to all you Walla Walla area riders. Have any of you ridden this route and if so, would it be doable on my Triumph Tiger 800xc? How much time would I need to realistically do the complete trail? Is there plenty of fuel available each day? The tiger is good for 150 to 200 mile.
What would be the best time to do this?

timbercat, you might try contacting Tom Mahren of SoundRider.com
tmehren@mm411.com

I talked to him this summer and he was familiar with the route and I think he said he had a better one that you can do on your bike. The WABDR had some bad washed out areas that hadn't been repaired and may never be with the bad economy and all. rj

DANG RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't been on the forum for quite a while, we should have got together during the holidays for some egg nog!
I agree that it would be great to get together for a lunch meeting, maybe we can get the weather right and we can all ride to it - wouldn't that be a blast!

I'm thinking that during the week would be hardest for most working folks. Sunday am hard for us church goers but 2-3 pm could work. Saturdays ok if we all get our chores done :) This weekend I may be in Spokane seeing son. What say everyone else? rj

I have some stuff to do this morning but I will check back and make sure the meeting place and time hasn't changed. Otherwise I will see whoever can make it at 11:30.
