Lunch

I have to get some work done in the yard this Sunday and am planning on having Spaghetti etc, enough for anyone that might show up.

Walla walla riders or others invited .

PM for the address or just show up if you have been here before. Food will be ready at noon or later if you want fed. I won't be around most of Saturday but will answer posts Saturday night.

Some of the guys I ride with will smell the sauce and investigate this thread , always welcome.
Any vegans need to warn me beforehand or all the mushrooms will be covered with sausage .

Skyline Conditions

I have a buddy visiting Friday night from Lewiston. He's headed home Saturday and we were thinking about heading up Tiger Canyon and onto Skyline and working our way around toward Pomeroy.

Anyone been up that way yet this year? Is there still snow or are the roads clear?

PS-anyone wanting a Saturday putt in the mountains is welcome to come along!

I haven't made it up tiger canyon yet this year. But I'm betting it's still has some deep drifts. I have never been able to get thru on my bike until mid to late june.

RJ,

Are you north of Rose? About 9:30? That would have been me riding my buddy's g650gs. He was on my Vision. We were headed for brekkie at the golf course in Dayton, then he was headed home to Lewiston.

We headed up into the hills yesterday up Government Mountain Rd. Got turned back by snow before we got to Big Meadow.

Snow

I was up at Tollgate last week, just past the guard station at the lake the road is still snowed in. I busted through three drifts and then gave up.

So I have been staying low, took the TDM to Wallowa Lake today.

Hi all. Just want to throw this out there to riders in my greater area...

I'm in the market for a DR 350, 400, 650 or KLR 650 or similar. Budget is the less than $2500 price range, though sub $2000 would be ideal.

If anyone is getting rid of one of these bikes now, or at the end of the season, or have a friend... or a friend of a friend who will be selling one, let me know or drop me a PM if you don't mind. I'm down in Pullman and have all summer/fall to find a dual sport bike but I'm beginning the search now. Thanks.

check the Tri-Cities Craigslist. There's a KLR on there today in your price range.

Must be neighbors with the Adams. My daughter is friends with their daughter, Savannah.

Edit: Yup, they're just across 9th from you.

We'll have to get out and do a ride sometime.

Hello Walla Walla.
Several months ago I posted here that my son and I will spend 1 day in Walla Walla on journey Texas to the Arctic Circle. We have family there and it's my home town. Our schedule is a little in flex but it appears we'll make it around June 11th.
We would love to meet for a cup of joe or a drink and kick tires and tell yarns with local riders.
