Just back from a dualsport trip through eastern WA.

The area we originally planned to ride in the Methow Valley was snowed-in, so instead after getting through the snow on the passes we metup in Wenatchee and went straight to the local KTM dealer, who pulled out his BLM maps and hooked us up with some local knowledge. With his help, and the help of the KTM dealer in Ellensburg, we connected a fun, circuitous stretch of dirt over mtns and through valleys, skirting just below the snow line for most of the ride. Great area.

Big thanks to these guys:

Here's the last group of pics from the final day/night...



























We'll be doing lots more moto exploring in this area around Wenatchee, Lake Chelan, and the Methow Valley. Great dualsport potential.

Hope ya'll enjoyed the pics!

I love the report, pictures, and I own guns. But from the last few pics it looks like you guys are shooting at some cans in a tree branch. Please tell me that you are not shooting off the top of a mountain or into a valley. Nealry got shot once 1/4 mile away from some people that were trying to shoot a crow in a tree and didn't think about where the bullets were going. And please-this isn't ment to start a political discussion about guns. Happy riding!

That looks like a hoot! I gotta get back over there in something other than a U-Haul truck hauling my sorry butt home.

Nope we're not shooting off the top of a mountain or into a valley. There's a tall dirt embankment on the other side of that stream, we scoped it out.

Sorry man, no gps routes. However if you check in with the two KTM dealers I mentioned at the top of the post they'll hook you up.
