I'll won't be riding to the event. I'm staying in Ritzville and will be headed over Fri. right after work.

I couldn't find the start time or schedule for the Sat. events. Here's the link to the website: http://stumpjumpers.org/desert100/

I saw on the news this morning. Dobson Pass has a washout. This is the road north out of Wallace. They were doing road construction on it this fall. From the pics, I'm guessing a fill washed out. Bastards were trying to straighten the road.

Bummer about the washout. I didn't know anything about work being done to straighten it but there are a few of those curves that could use improvement, some weird angles in a few places and frost heaves that could heave you right off the mountain. As much as we enjoy roads like that for our playground other people use those roads for transportation.


Rainier Rider you're funny...... But when I was trying to find how to get to your place you weren't able to provide lat/long ...... you fail.

Yeah the New Enfields are built in India, I guess as the story goes when Enfield in the UK when out of business they never told the India factory. So they have been making the same 60s style bikes with minimal upgrades since. Way cool bikes and they have made HUGE reliability strides in the last few years.
