Pretty freaky to pull out and head West, meet you guys within 2 miles of my driveway headed the other way; then go for a 100 mile dualsport ride and meet you going the other way within 200 yds of the driveway like 4 hours later!

You say "beat" your way to the top. That can mean many things.

BIG fun !!!!
There's like about 8 creek crossings on this route, IIRC. Many are small, one can get outta hand when wet, but they had graded much of the road when I rode it in September last year, and I haven't been back when it's wet-ish

Just a little bit loose and rocky in spots, that's all ;-D. I hooked a melon-sized rock with the rear tire which set me sideways at about 30mph. Saved it, but really not sure how!!

Yep!

Awfully nippy! Glad we rode while we could.

We avoided the shopping hordes and got in a really nice ride at Cline last Friday. The 20 loop hill was slip-per-y. Two attempts each, but made it up. All that silty sand is good practice for Baja in January. Thinking of that trip keeps my spirits up in this awful cold. Still wish I had a hot tub, though...

Not yet. I'm not convinced the transmission was assembled correctly last time it was put together. Looking for a good diagram so I know exactly where every thrust washer is supposed to go.

I was able to ride yesterday though! I'm lucky enough to have some great friends.

Rode out to Brothers yesterday. With the wide open views and knowing the landmarks, I don't bring a map out there anymore. But this time I did turn on the GPS app on my phone. We didn't use it, just wanted to see our tracks when we got home. It looked like a typical ride.

Just another beautiful day east of the cascades!

East bound.




And to our destination!





We were about ready to leave and there's a KTM NineFidy coming down the road. I think I said to Staci, here comes some sucker on a KTM, or something like that.

Sure enough!




Hi Monkey!

Good times out there! Nice lil day ride 150 something miles of fun. Once off the pavement the ride got super dusty and it stayed that way all day long. Love the traction of those pumie pebbles on the 500.



New suspension setup makes my DRZ feel like I have a brand new bike!



Brothers Stage Stop serves up a tasty refreshing purple drank and I had a hand full of black licorice gotta keep the energy level high!
