Hey Jeff

Glad to see that you've been sucked into the ADVrider vortex. You'll never be the same again

As you know snow is the limiting factor (well maybe not for you) this time of year for any riding ~1,500+ but there are a lot of lowland logging roads and back roads to explore. Congrats on the 990!

Shucks! I just saw this. Hope that your ride was safe (and warm?). (Post earlier, please/please/please.)

Dammidave led us on a great ride today. It wasn't very cold, but we did encounter a bit of ice and snow.


We had a nice breakfast at Loggers Landing.


Dave checks his tire pressure before we head out.


My trusty KLR!


We encountered a bit of icy snow.


Michael and his KTM.


Apparently our bikes were tired, they decided to take naps!




KTM's make cool skid marks on the ice!


Dave's bike decided to take a nap also!



Great fun!

Bill, we managed to do the 120rd that parallels Penny Crk then Snow Crk and Woods Rd. The Hood Canal side of things gets more sun so the farther North and West we rode the icier it got. The 120rd had a good crust of ice on the mudholes, and there were lots of 'em, some snow and downed limbs. We got into a little packed ice on Lord's Lake Rd West of the reservoir, quite a bit from the gravel pit on, on Snow Crk and then got our collective butts bruised getting over to Woods Rd. Apparently there are not photos documenting Andre's tipover so it must not have happened. After coffee at the Long House we toured the back roads to Diamond Point and took the Old Gardiner Rd back to the highway where we split up to head home. It was good to get out for a ride, Thanks Steven!, but I think I'll stay below about 500 feet until the bruise on my hip heals. DD

Giving credit....

Good eye everycredit! Thats the $8 sacrificial mirror from the left side. I didn't dare take my hands of the bars to fold them in and they had been forgotten when we set out. 'Seems small potatoes in the world of possibilities surrounding an un-gracefull dismount on glaze ice. dd

I'm glad you guys got out for a classic "check the snow levels ride" from Quilcene and the LL. By the looks of things, I'm glad I wasn't with you.

Gootch, I just kept telling myself "If it doesn't get better in a hundred yards I'm going home".

And 13 1/2 miles (and one KTM on the ground) later. I think my nerves have come back.

Steven has let me put that KLR on the ground a couple of times cause I can't keep my own bikes running Let me know when the snow is gone. Who know's a good KTM tunner.
