I'd be down but the DRZ is still in the shop. Maybe next time.

Looks like a fun track. Is it VStrom friendly?

Little of both would be nice-I'm on a KTM 950 shod with Heidenau knobs at the moment. And I'm a dirty hippie from Cali so I don't know my way around yet.

As for time, I'm thinking around mid-morning. It's too damn cold around here for much earlier.

The later the better for me. Yes it's cold in the AM and I don't like it when there is still frost on the road. I was thinking about pulling the RT out of hibernation tomorrw but I won't want to take it off of the pavemet. I could take the KLR. I will PM you my phone number.

Well, A19 and I had a nice little spin around today. About 100 miles, a few (and I mean a few- maybe 15? 20? ) snowflakes, a little bit of country, a little bit of town, and generally a good ride.

Thanks for playing tour guide (and for lunch) Rick. Looking forward to many more rides as the weather warms up.

It was good to meet you Feike, Here is a map showing my GPS track from today. Will be much more fun once the sand (and snow/ice) is gone from the back roads.

Nice loop. It looks like you took a side trip to the ORV Park at 7-mile. How's the snow out there?

That's a pretty good route. I like taking Palouse highway from the South hill to the Valley.

Valley Chapel Rd. is always a good spring opener ride.

Hey curious if any of you Spokane folk want some of those tractor manual tubes?



I'm sure you guys know of them, but they fit the 1 liter MSR cans pretty perfect, great for storing tools, first aid kits, whatever.

Shipping for 2 of these guys is $15 though, and for $10 worth of items I feel robbed. Shipping for 20 of them is only $25... So figure if anyone else is interested we can get a group buy on these things and save on some of that shipping cost.
