SPOKANE Area Riders

Maybe pass you on the road. I'll be heading to Spokane to do some shopping tomorrow thru the Nelway border crossing.

What a lovely new thread you have Buttercup.
I think I can go Sunday. Sullivan Lake, Metaline Falls and Boundary Dam make a nice ride on a hot day. The last time I did it a Grizzly Bear ran across the road in front of me.

PNW Buttercup 08-13-2010 08:35 PM

Will go with general concensus... I'm free either day as my horseback riding fell through...

1 - Sunday Lamotovita

what works for you Jer?

Kootenay kid you are a Saturday?

big jer 08-13-2010 08:46 PM

either day , but sunday would be better. what time, and where do ya want to meet??

PNW Buttercup 08-13-2010 08:54 PM

9:00 A.M. at the CONOCO on HWY 2 and Deer Park Milan.

We can take backroads to Newport and then the LeClerc Road (Eastside) of river to Metaline Falls?... Lamotovita -- you've likely ridden more this area than I -- you have a better more interesting route? :deal Just remember the 250 barely makes 60mph!

I'm open to suggestions....

about what time do you think you'd be goin by usk? i would probably take the flowery trail pass from chewelah an meet up with you in usk. then would probably peel off at tiger pass to colville on the way home.

well that depends on if we leave Chattaroy earlier I guess, not sure how long it will take... I defer to Lamoto (1 hour?)

ya I know.... just getting started on this ride planning thing... I don't wear a watch so.. there you go... time is meaningless... But I believe an hour may be in the ball park... course that could mean a punt or a home run with me ?!:huh

big jer 08-13-2010 09:25 PM

sooo, i guess i'll be in usk at around 10, an if i have service i could call ya around 9 to see if the herd is moving yet? will be on the 990 so if i need to catch up it won't be a problem:wink:

YFF's! go ride!
I got a busted wing strut, and you are all spozed to fill in for me when you can,,git out there!

Oh gosh,, I rode my bike all weekend, and the grass didn't git mowed,,

poison the lawn, and ride every weekend!
And,,you better have fun!,,and not the make bleev, walmart brand substitute fun, the real deal where you have to go out and get it yourself!


I'll rely on your tasteful posting of pics and ride stories that I missed, go ahead and rub it in,, I'll pass and roost y'all when my wing heals!
peace and dirt!

Have a fun ride, Buttercup!
 
I just got back from 5 days with my brothers, nephews and son in and around Glacier NP. Did a lot of Driving (no riding :cry) and hiking.

also picked up a DVD called Dual Sport Riding Techniques. Will be practicing somewhere where none of you can watch me dump the bike :evil.

Maybe next time??
