I think we were taking a short cut home.

I really thought I could make it over the top, well at least I stopped trying before I got in too much trouble. I'm getting a little wiser with age.

Yeah all day long up there and I didn't see another rider or any tracks. I spent alot of time southwest of Spider on those roads you had shown Brian and I. Nice! But one more good snow and that place is done for the year. Snow's nice but I don't care for it hanging around up there so long in the spring.

I had that same question 2 weeks ago, and called the FS Pacific office in Quinault. Sorry, I forgot the guy's name, but he is in charge of FS 22 and FS 23, and drives those roads on a daily (?) basis. If you call the office there, and ask for the "road manager" they will put you through to him.

BTW, 2 weeks ago there wasn't snow anywhere. Old news, I know.

Just got my KTM 990 and was looking through this thread. Is there a meet up time/place in the South Sound - Tacoma area?

I'll be riding Capital Forest roads and a few back roads around Thurston County this weekend. I have a new 990 as well and would like to put some miles on it. Let me know if you're interested. I can ride either day.

There is a coffee shop in Tacoma that has lots of parking. There is also a Shari's next door if you want something more substantial than a bagel (although not generally a fan of Shari's). Bertolino's coffee, next to the Target. Second exit on highway 16 when you get off of I-5.

I know Wednesdays there is a BMW auto club that meets there.

Have fun in Capitol forest, went about halfway up the hills and hit about 2 frets of snow in a few spots. Got fairly rough in some areas. This was around the rock candy/straddleline area outside olympia. Either way have a good time riding.

Congrats on your new 990 and welcome to the asylum!

Obviously as weather gets better there is more activity.
We had a pretty steady group meeting in Olympia over the years so keep an eye out on this thread.

Are you new to Adventure bikes?

Yes, I have been racing and riding offroad for years. A couple of years back the KTM rep let me borrow a 990 for the Shelton Dualsport ride. Me and the girlfriend had a fantastic time and I have been wanting and waiting ever since. If any of you are in the Tacoma area I usually hang out at the Harmon Brewery or Tap Room and the Parkway Tavern.

I will let you know if I can make that work. Thank you for the heads up and invite.

Awesome, the Shelton DS rally is a good time. Hopefully there will be one this year. See you around Tacoma.
