Thought I'd throw an idea out for you Walla Walla area folks - hopefully you have seen this post - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=600458
- about the Wild West Rally. Perhaps a weekend ride to go and spectate and learn more about Rally Moto in your area would be a good weekend jaunt? Perhaps even sign up and volunteer to marshal a corner or two - best viewing and you get to ride the stage roads to see what they are really like.
Weekend of September 25-26 - camping at the fairgrounds or city park; local watering hole in Pomeroy. Other crazy DS riders to meet and talk racing with. Just up the 12 from you!
Better yet - enter - and see if you know the 'local' roads better than the guys coming across the state! Ask questions here or the other post if you're interested.
