Eagle creek was a beast. I told Sorebutt we made Steep and Rocky proud. 11 miles never felt so long. Total body workout. Wapshilla ridge had beautiful panoramic views. It reminded me of Roy's computer desktop wallpaper. Lots of ATV/truck traffic on the Waha and side roads.

I am thinking we can start early, 8AM and be back in valley area by 5PM. Meet at Dynamart at 8AM. Palouse folks can meet at the Chase bank in downtown Pullman at 7AM.

I tried out the standard version of the "wet head" gs today. Oodles of power and great handling. I can't see how someone can ride such a responsive machine on the dirt. Sbrownn, I would probably recommend getting the premium version, which has settings for different surface types.

I have no problem meeting at 8:00, I'll probably just shoot down 95 to the spiral highway instead of going over to Pullman first. We talked about 8:30 a couple of post ago so we just need to confirm with the other guys.

I can meet at a little after 8:00 at Gibbs Eddy. I don't know if Ron sees this. He might be in bed already. I've been watching supercross racing on TV.

Lets check this site in the morning to make sure everyone is on the same page.

I was down on the river and took some pictures of the ridge line where you guys were at one point.
Phyllis and I were taking the tour boat with a group doing a geology class under LCSC continuing education. Very good trip. I have pictures of the ridge from the river.

I think I can see Restlessrider looking over the edge.


Stopped at Garden Creek Ranch

I saw a KTM 950 SE sitting across the street from the Green Frog in Palouse on Saturday. Was that anybody on here? I think that they were with a group because there was another bike sitting up on the side walk next to the SE. I was the guy on the KTM Adventure loaded up with new tires strapped on top of it.

That was a good looking SE.

Agreed!!!!

Standing out on that point where the water breaks over the edge with the roar, always makes me wonder how those kayakers survive the fall!!!! Man, that's got to hurt!!!!!

Some pictures from the ride last Saturday to Wapshilla ridge and Eagle Creek road to the Salmon river.








On Sunday, Sorebutt, MtnSeeker, Cavscout and I met at Gibb's eddy at about 8:45am and headed towards Kooskia. I overslept in the morning and had a late start and I had to hustle the 250 to get down to the valley in 30 mins and then another 20 mins to get to Gibb's eddy. From there it was an hour of pavement to get to Kamiah, where we gased up. Then we took highway 13, on past Stites, hung a left at Sally Ann Creek road. After a few miles, we took a right onto the famed Elk city wagon road. There was a lot of gravel on the roads and we all reduced our tire pressure. After that I promptly got lost from the group and wandered the opposite way, the previous day's ride may have worn me out or maybe it was the Monday blues. I made my way back and rejoined with the group.

We went up the wagon road as far as we could but we had to backtrack after a few miles due to snow. After that I think we did Meadow creek road, Lightning creek road, Medicine creek road and then took a right on Peasley creek road. Except for Peasley creek road most of the roads were hard surface with a little bit of dirt and gravel on the top, so they were relatively fast roads which didn't require standing up as often. Peasley creek was more primitive two track but it was down hill and a fairly fast road. There were several obstacles like fallen trees and rocks that required slowing and manoeuvring but it wasn't too bad.

Peasely creek road ended at highway 14 and we took a left to do the 30 miles of scenic pavement along the South fork of the Clearwater over to Elk City. We stopped at the Elk City Saloon to have a late lunch. Shortly after that I topped off my little KLX tank and headed back up highway 14 and 13 to Stites. We all gased again and did highway 12 up to Orofino. From there we took highway 7 over to Kendrick where Cavscout and I parted ways with Sorebutt and Mtnseeker. Highway 7 was twisty and fun to ride. Sorebutt had a big grin on his face at the top of the grade. From Kendrick, Cavscout and I took highway 99 to Troy and then highway 8 home. It was easily a 325 mile day for me. Some pictures from the ride below.
