lol.... Mrs1911fan manages to fall down on every ride, at least off-pavement, and says I will be in trouble if I don't take a picture before I help her.

Can't wait til June! We'll be trailering the F650s down, especially after the last trip home. Sheesh.

I hear ya about trailering them. Last year encompassed both extremes for my very little cycling experience....it was the best riding I have enjoyed, but that ride home was horrible.

Yeah.... We kept running into crappier and crappier weather, and she finally pulled off outside Pullman and said she wanted to get inside somewhere and wait it out. Glad she did, as I was about to and since she did it first, I still have my Man Card, lol.
I was watching her get blown towards the fog line, leaned into the wind at a steep angle on wet roads, when I realized I was doing the same thing only on knobbies. We hung out in McD's for two hours, and it got worse, and worse, and worse. We holed up in a motel to wait it out, and the next morning it was still bad. "Hello? UHaul? We need to rent a truck this morning."
Glad we did, as it was raining so hard around Colfax that we had to yell at each other above the roar. With time off, rental, hotel bill, etc, that was about a $600 day off and totally worth it.
One inmate did get blown off the highway, was that you?

That was "the Fluffy" on the KLR, that camped near us.
He had a bad weekend of falls, but got up smiling, like a true adver....


It was a nasty ride home last year in wind and rain, but the wind was the bugger.
We spent the night in a cheap motel in Heppner, and it was better the next day for us....

This year, Mustangshelly is talking about riding the loooong way to Enterprise,....via Idaho!!
We might not get there untill Thursday evening, or Friday even,
....but we'll be there for Fajitas !!

My brother (fatherof4) and I will be up early again this year and I'm looking for some rides to take while we wait for the rest of you to show up. I was thinking we might ride the pavement to Clarkston and come back up Joseph creek. I know some of you have rode in that way. How long does it take to come back to Enterprise that way ?

Lots of ways to get into Clarkston without using the highway, Peola Rd, Lick fork of Asotin creek into Asotin and a bunch of variations that keep you South of Pomeroy.
Generally about 4 hours from Clarkston to Enterprise because of all the stops along the way. Shouldn't be a problem to go from Walla Walla to enterprise via Clarkston by dinner time.
If you do the Peola road you drop down Critchfield Rd in Clarkston to the highway and gas up in Asotin, saves some miles.

Thanks for the info. But since we will already be in Enterprise. I was looking for rides we could do from Enterprise. We are planning to ride to Halfway on one day. Maybe hit a few back roads that we didn't get to last year. We will have about three days to kill before we ride down and pick up Jared.

Let's see, I don't have a new motorcycle scheduled for delivery that weekend, like June this year, so maybe I can manage to make it for a change.

Hat Point, Dug Bar, the Hell's Canyon overlook and Imnaha River Road to Imnaha Tavern. Fire lookouts on the Zumwalt Road.

Hi Bob

As you know there are plenty of riding opportunites in the Enterprise area. Your idea of the dirt route from Lewiston to Enterprise is a fun ride. My guess is about 4 hours depending on how fast or slow you move along. Be sure to stop at Buckhorn and enjoy the view. My suggestion though would be to ride to Lewiston via dirt while you are rested and fresh then return on Rattlesnake (about 2 hours). The ride is an easy one and very scenic.

Other idea can be found here: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....81&postcount=2 I updated post two with the links to the different route suggestions. If you have an interest in Lookouts check the link for them. I don't remember how lookouts I put on there but it was about 15.

I'm sure you won't have any problem finding rides to keep you entertained.

Glad you can make it this year. While that new bike that kept you away last year be attending with you?

We have rode some of those already. I was planning on riding to the Imnaha tavern and then coming up along side the river to the wallowa to halfway road. I'm planning on stopping at the buckhorn look when we came up Joseph creek.
