Speaking of hitting deer, my dad just hit one on his Multistrada going over Sherman Pass about 3 hours ago. He seems to be ok, but his leg is pretty bad. Still waiting on updates. Watch out for those critters everyone.

Sorry to hear about the deer - hopefully he will be back out there soon. I spooked a few deer (and myself) up around mt spokane today on some logging roads. Me thinks Bambi likes spring foliage

Just to clarify - he, being your dad, not the deer

Yes of course. From the sounds of it I don't think the deer had a chance.

As dry as it was overall.... the muddy butt still lived up to its name in spots..



At one point I had my bike up to the tank in mud.. 4 laps per rider in the Heavyweight (250+ CC)

My partner and I pulled 8th in our class out of 34 teams. Not sure about overall.

Nice job. I've heard there are some colossal water/mud holes down there.

I take that northwest part of your route all the time, with devils gap in there. Usually come around the pallouse on the back side.
