No Sir.. I would not want to be the person responsible for inciting a road rage incident on NF50.
I have a feeling there was quite a bit of firepower in the truck cabs on that road.

LB, yup rode to Coulee, it was quite cool. Now we just need to get Slicers dirt worthy machine built so we can ride some of those dirt side roads up there and really get lost...

OK, you can still "get lost" but you can also get unlost

Well, dang! Forgot all about it. Nanc and I have been working on the raised beds most of the day. Decided for a quick drive in the hack up to Wild Rose Prairie cematary and back. Beautiful day to get some time in on the sidecar setup.

Dillon was over for many hours yesterday. Almost have my turn signals working properly at last. He also fixed the needle jet in one of the Bings. The bike is running really well now. Thanks Dillon!

I finally pulled the ol' Connie out of hibernation yesterday and rode her up to the Usk Grill for lunch.

Not a vegan friendly environment.

Dillon, sorry about pocket dialing you, or helmet dialing in this case. I guess voice recognition with Bluetooth helmet systems is not yet perfected.

Is the bacon girl a local? I'd like to have her over for breakfast some time.

Over Due Ride Report

I work a job that has early hours and weekdays off. Kind of tough to get get folks to ride with as schedules usually don't match. A couple of weeks ago the weather broke, I was on a day off and decided to head north out of Spokane. I had put some new tires on the scoot and wanted to scuff them in a bit. I also decided to put some decals on too. I'm not into the sticker thing but this site has been so great with info and I've met several great folks that well, I just felt I should support it.

For those that would ask, the tires are Heidenau K60. I don't know how to pronounce their name but did some research and thought they'd work well for how I ride. They are a bit expensive but suppose to give good mileage. We'll see.





Stickered up and ready to roll:





To start the trip, I needed some breakfast. I love omelets. Molly's in downtown Spokane(2nd or 3rd street-can't remember. It's the one way street heading east) makes some great and BIG omelets!



Did I mention these omelets are BIG?



I was talking with a gentleman in the restaurant about motorcycles as he'd seen me pull in. He rides a Harley and we talked about some of the trips we'd both done. I asked the waitress if she'd mind if I took her picture and she agreed but only if the gentleman I was talking to was in it too. As you can see, he cheated! I thanked her for her great service and left well fed and coffee d.



I headed up to Pend Oreille County. I wanted to get out of the big city and out into the county. I also wanted to see how the new tires would do in some dirt and as I was to find out, some snow! I headed north on Division St and took the SR2 road up through Chattaroy. I continued north on SR2 and the took the SR211 road up through Deer Vally. A beautiful stretch of road. As I drove by Davis Lake, I was thinking I might have to try my hand at fly fishing it. I wound up at the small town of Usk. A neat little town and I saw(and forgot the name of) a small restaurant that needs to be tried on my next outing up there. I then took the Kings Lake Road over the Pend Oreille River and hung a left heading north on the Le Clerc RD. This road parallels the river and is also very scenic. I saw several deer and some turkeys along the way. I came to a road called Le Clerc Creek Road. I pulled over and got my map out. No GPS for me by GOD! It looked like I could ride this road over to Priest Lake.



A little too much snow prevented me from accomplishing this goal at this time. Dillon told me later that LB knows this area well. I'd love to explore it more come summer time. After I got turned around at the snow line, I took several side roads. Lots of Road Closed signs. I wonder if they open later in the year??

Some more pics:





Too many of these!







I got off the scoot and walked around the curve for about 3/4 mile. The snow/ice got worse. No thanks, not on a 575 plus pound bike. Adventure is one thing but this will be my turn around spot for today:



Some more exploration of the area:











Tires worked well in this stuff. I was impressed!



This spot was gold. I'm thinking about 200 yards. Dillon, are you thinking what I am?



What a great day!!!

Pete

Great RR Pete. Looks like a great trip. Also looks like I may be able to get my street oriented hack up some of those gravel roads once they dry out a bit. Thanks for pointing them out.

I've got a little saddle time on this "Beast" now(not as much as I'd like but I'm working on it-). I think for me and how I ride and where I like to go this bike will work out just fine. This is an older RR I did when I first got the bike:
