Hey I can hear you! That poor XR is finally back on the road, but it will never be the same. Don't forget I did the last ten miles with only one footpeg.

What? No pictures of the tree crossing on Devils Backbone?

A DOZEN of those damn trees!



But totally worth it once I got there.

(That missing side panel couldn't hang, and decided not to finish that trip)

Nice! You are indeed hardcore! All those trails at Foggy Dew are pretty extreme for a XR650.

I think I may already have met him but don't know him by his handle here. Maybe not. Either way, I am sure we will meet at some point.

Small community so yup, I am sure you have seen or met him. If you were at the D100, he was our final sweep guy that did nice long burnout on the stage. We ride with Sapling, Hayshaker and and a bunch of other adv members.

This site is becoming my go to place instead of TT. TT is slowly fading away (IMO.)

Actually I think a 3.0-3.5 gallon tank might be enough for a trip like this. I can get about 150 miles on 3.1 gallons on my 540, and this route wouldn't be in the serious middle of nowhere like the TID is.
I think the Columbia River to Packwood stretch might be the longest assuming the Shell Station near Naches River is open, and then you're just weaving back and forth over Hwy 97.
That is not a trail bike, it is a tanker escort.

+1 ...Let it fade.

It is the same 8 or 10 guys that think their poo doesn't stink.
It is still a good resource for tech, but the the NW section is the pits.



I like what you guys are doing here, and I wish I lived closer and had less "responsibilities" (kids) to participate when you get it figured out.

I went for a ride this week to check out some the above mentioned trails, went to Mission Ridge and Devils Backbone, weather was great and the riding was just what I'm looking for. I also went to some of the trails up the Entiat past Ardenvoir, good riding up there as well but I lost my axle nut and had to cut the ride short. I'm still working on the map and will post it when it's done but in the meantime here's some pics of the riding outside Cashmere up on Mission Ridge etc.











the last picture is not a fish eye lens, it was the top of a windy ridge with an amazing view.
By the way, there was no snow and the logs were mostly cleared, go riding!

Keep posting trail suggestions!

Funny, the Forest Circus still has signs at the lower end of Devil's Gulch saying things like "Closed due to fire danger", and "Miles of downed trees across trail". I'm guessing they're from last winter.
