My plan is to do this ride in the summer of 2011 on my F650GS and looking for a small group of riding partners.

I'd like to take a week to do this (moto-camping) and I'm also not interested in an Enduro style ride and love to take lots of pictures. I've done the MT1000 (planning to return and do that again in 2011) and many other d/s rides in the Pacific NWet.

Is anyone else looking for riding partners?

Seriously, I think I've either ridden much of this route, or been over parts of it on various backroad jaunts with my ol' pickup. A lot of it will be familiar territory for you and me both. I've got the backpacking tent, stove, water pump/filter and all that stuff. Let's see how the winter progresses - and maybe set a mid-late summer time to do the route on our bikes. Should be fun!

Oh hell yes, I'm pretty geared up as well. Stoopit snow, go away! I want to ride!!!!

I'd love to do this trip as well. I'd also love to do the MT1000, as I was on my way there this past July when a poorly-timed bit of business recalled me just before I would have lost cell phone reception.

Hmmm. Maybe a good excuse to get a skidplate & engine guards... Although hopefully I won't need them!

Up on Chumstick Mtn, earlier this year:


Have been looking over the maps - heck you and I rode a chunk of it one day when I had my Scrambler. Other parts on other trips. Looks like it runs though some great country. I've ridden or driven much of the northern half, but only bits and pieces of the southern portion. Bring the cameras, this ought to be a lot of fun!

I'm in

Can't wait for the snow to go away and get out there and check out what Washington has to offer. I am hoping on sometime in August if I can get out of the house after my first kid is born....a mans got to do what a mans got to do (or at least I will try and convince my wife of this).

Look for a tall guy on a 1150GS....and if you see me, stop to give directions

Moto-camping sounds like fun - I need a bigger tank for my WR-250R.

I wonder how that little bike would do?

That bike will be fine, but you might be a little bored
For a good setup on a wr250 see:http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601595

The wr 250r will do fine. I rode most of the Mt 1000 last year with a guy on one. The only time he had problems keeping up were on the paved sections. He did have a bigger tank, a pipe and remapped FI as well.

Northern end of WBCDR

I was born in, live in and work in the northern part of the "trail" (North of Hwy 20). If you are going to run this route and need a place to crash for a night... or some tools... cold beer etc. send me a PM before you leave and I can give you my phone number. I might even tag along for a chunk of it.

I ride the northern part of this route often, I also camp, hunt and fish the area and I work for the forest service up here... they aren't kidding when they say snow in June. Sometimes it will start snowing in September too!

Make sure you stop at the Loomis quick stop... great fried chicken!

Timmer, any dates set yet?

I'm interested but next summer is looking really busy already. do you have any dates in mind? Your plans sound perfect to me, I'm in no rush and want to take a bunch of pics also.

For me, it's likely to be sometime in July. Nothing is firm yet. June is looking like an AK trip and August is looking like the CDT.

How far south you going on the CDT?
