We did hike another 14 miles and hooked up to the trail we cleared last year, but it would take a crew of 10 saws a few weeks to clear the windfalls in that distance.

I know some of you don't regularly check the general PNW section... These folks are looking for a local inmate to help them out with a place to let them change tires around July 7. There were a few local offers, but I thought I'd re-post it here just in case.

So it looks like tomorrow (Saturday the 22nd) the weather will cooperate and allow us a relatively dry day, so I'm gonna exercise the Big Pig, otherwise known as my 950 Adv.

Anyone else up for a ride tomorrow? No plans yet, and probably none expected till the AM, but post up and we'll come up with a meet spot/general direction.

Short notice, but I'll be heading out to the Centennial Trail to do some solo trail clearing tomorrow morning. I'll try to be to the parking lot at the top of Thompson pass by 6 or 7 am. If anyone wants to meet me there, great! If I'm already in the woods, I'm sure it won't take you long to find me. Just take it slow in case I am on my way back to the truck for something... I don't want to hit you head-on.

Spokane, WA Weekly Gathering

Hello All!!

Its MotoNerd here trying to come up with some ideas on a meeting spot then a dinner ride for next week. I was thinking about next Friday, June 28th. As an Air Traffic Controller, my work schedule is very different from most of you commoners.. HA HA HA. So I was thinking of putting up a couple ideas for when people would be able to meet and where we can go. So here is what I have come up with.. just vote, and we should be able to come up with something. If you have any specific requests, just link this reply, so others will be able to add in and make comments..

Departure Time:

A) 3:00pm
B) 4:00pm
C) 5:00pm
D) 'crap, I'm still at work to meet at the earlier times, I have a better later time..'

Destination:

A) Deer Park, WA
B) Davenport, WA
C) Chewelah, WA
D) Sandpoint ID
E) 'I have a better idea..'

Meet-Up Spot

A) SFCC (Spokane Falls Community College)
B) Liberty Lake, WA
C) Coeur D'Alene, ID
D) South Hill Area, Spokane, WA
E) 'your ideas are still bad, heres a better one..'

I really hope that we can get a group together for a dinner ride. If you have any friends who ride that aren't on this forum, invite them. I think it would be great to have a local group that can meet for dinner often.

Cheers!

Welcome to the group BTW.
Kootenai Rider, I have posted some ideas for a gathering/dinner ride. We will see how this works. I am on the South Hill, and I ride the 2012 V-Strom Adventure! Thanks for the welcome!! I really want to get some sort of a weekly gathering that a lot of people would come to. It would be great to get a group together of mates!

I posted up a bit of a report over on the Centennial Trail thread. I hit snow a lot earlier than I expected. It is starting to get personal. That is 3 attempts now, and I still haven't made it further than 5 1/2 miles!!!

Added a little bling to the rims.

Took about 4 hours to do both of them, but looks pretty good.


Two Brothers carbon fiber pipe will be here tomorrow.

I was about to ask who that group was.... I was sitting there at the truck at the base of Chilco mt after riding Independence/Fasit Peak and saw your group go past. Some one on a Silver 640 Adventure had the ADV sticker on the back of their helmet...

No one flew a salute tho.
