Welll...I'm not the only one who breaks the speed limits on Riverview on/in a BMW. Some of us just do it on four wheels instead of two!

Really good. Better like mud. The had an awesome turnout. Go find the Urban Assault thread I started here in pnw. There are some race pics there.

The jersey barriers weren't as bad as I thought they would be to hop up on.

Well played.

Judging by your pics, the tires looked more intimidating than the barriers. Is there any traction on muddy rubber against muddy rubber?






I was just at Allsport discussing the availability of a new YZ250.

Those tires are fine so long as you hop them. Just don't get you front tire in one of the holes or you are hosed. I like crossing those.


In other news one of my sled head friends went sledding today and said it was 50 degrees at 6000 feet. Said the snow was really melting fast. Wahoo that hopefully means we'll be riding up there sooner than June.

Here was my ride today. About 120 miles with my girl on the back. Was a bit of fun except when I got stuck behind some cagers most of the north west part of the route. Shame, because that's the best part.

I did a loop around Lake CdA yesterday. Roads are dry and no sand, fun, fun fun but then the Benewah Sheriffs and I had a nice visit just outside the park between Plummer and St Maries. The speed limit drops from 55 to 45 kinda suddenly as you drop down into the park. Got off with a warning as they said they had clocked me earlier under the 55 limit but later over the 45 limit .

That sounds like one bored deputy.

I rode with a few friends yesterday. Marc was on his KLX250, Shawn on his DR350 and Kent I were on our KLR650s.

I had a fairly rotten time on Foothills road due to very slimy mud. There are few things I hate more than the feeling I get when the front end of my 400+ pound, very top heavy, KLR is washing out. Two years ago I went down very hard on the same road surface conditions and my ribs start to hurt just thinking about it. I’m done with Shinko 244 tires on the front of the KLR. I ordered a Pirelli XCMH front tire last night. I have the same thing on my WR450 and it grips like Velcro off pavement compared to the 244 and is also DOT legal.

Later in the day other guys wanted to check out the Liberty Lake ORV park. Great more mud! I was up there 2 weeks ago on an actual dirt bike and had trouble hooking up. No thanks! I hung out in the parking lot and shot the bull with some arena cross racers that were taking a break from practicing while Marc, Shawn & Kent headed up to the mud fest. My hat is off to Kent for taking his KLR up there this time of year.

I may go for a short ride this afternoon. I certainly need to hit a carwash if nothing else.

The Superbug and I went for a short ride this morning (22 miles). It sure felt good to be out on a bike, too bad I'm going to work in 30 minutes or I would have done more. Overtime this time of year is a good thing - it gives me the money to play later.
