Three guys three KTM's and 7 days of WA,Oregon,Idaho & Montana

Three of us Tom, Mike and myself Marty took a week to explore WA, Oregon, Idaho and Montana Aug 9-16. Tom rode the Black 950 and Mike and myself on the faster Orange 950's.

Tom and I trailed our bikes to Spokane WA to met with Mike at his dad's place Friday evening. Mike came up from Vancouver WA in his truck. We camped out in his dad's back yard Friday night and Saturday we were ready to explore mainly Idaho for 7 days.

Not going to go into a lot of detail on the ride just want to share my pics of the ride . Look for Mikes"s (mrudy) ride report on this fourm.

Day 1 - Saturday morning were up early and ready to go. Plan was to head south via WA back roads to Hells Canyon.

Both Red bikes started up but the black on had other ideas. I just made some jumper cables for this trip and had to pull them out. With a quick jump we were ready to ride. Here is Tom putting his bike back together

Here is our first day route

Head up to Mary Minerva McCroskey Mem State Park





Had lunch over looking the valley in the park


Before we got into Lexiton we took the Old Spiral Hwy. About 7 miles of twisty. Here is a panaram shot of the area





Mike found this dead animail on the road and thought it was cool to use as a seat cover. Actually its an old elk skin he had laying aorund the house and made good use of it. It got a Lots of looks.

Here is Mike on top on Spiral Hwy
