Hey guys,

Airhead Wrangler knows where this is.

Nice video, where were you riding?

I need to get out and "test" my freshly re-valved forks

Where

Out on Taylor River Road, exit 34 of I-90. The potholes have smoothed out somewhat since earlier this year and the whole first section can be ridden pretty fast. The last gated section should open up sometime in May...but you can ride through the gate if you are so inclined. There are a couple of places in the video where I cross some dry stream beds that should test your suspension set up. The GoPro flattens it out but my butt hits the seat from a standing position and there is a sneaky one just over a rise that you can't see until you are right on it.

Thanks! grabbed this from the net:

Driving Directions:
From Seattle, drive east on I-90 to exit 34 (Edgewick Road). Turn left (north) onto 468th Street and follow it to the junction with the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road (Forest Road 56). Turn right and continue up the Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for 12.5 miles to the Taylor River Road (just past the Middle Fork trailhead parking area). Turn left onto the Taylor River Road and drive to a wide parking area at its end, in about 0.5 mile

Solo,

We should meet up for a ride sometime! I had been messing with routes in the same area to get to the top of Mt. Washington but encountered snow at about 900ft.
