Our group of 2 KTM's (350, 690) just returned on Sunday from a quick 3 day trip, north to south. Great trip
Surprisingly, encountered a number of rider groups, more than expected. Between chelan and cashmere, near chumstick mtn ran into a 3 groups riding north; sole rider (don?) on top of chumstick, 3 big bikes and 2 street bikes (yep). We pointed the lost street bikes riders north onto the correct FS road
. Fiberglass fairings were not looking pristine, sorry no pics.
Section between cashmere and packwood (193mi) was a long hot day and good work out. More rock sections than recall from our ride last year. Up on bethel ridge ran into 2 groups; jason blasting south on big 990adv and local ken from cle elum out for day ride. Nice gents...
btw, washout side hill was in very good condition
further south of main washout, guess what, yep more washouts
amazing views, table mtn
mt cleman (rainer in distance)
very small sampling of pan heads up on bethel ridge
Between packwood and stevenson ran into this group of 2 with electrical issues. The Suzuki in pic below kept blowing main 30amp ignition fuse. Left them with a spare 15amp, which is all I had in the big type fuse. Hopefully they (you) made it out okay and trip ended on positive note. Believe he mentioned 3 rear flats to that point was well.
