October thru December is some of the best time to ride. All the snow has finally melted, forest roads have been repaired for the year and the camp sites are unoccupied.

True dat...I was thinking more along the lines of mid February, when Im snowmobiling because I can no longer ride/camp in the high country and I'm Jonesing to ride my Harley (and/or my XL600) in the warm sunshine, lol.

Oh well, gear up and hit it...bought me some foul weather gear and a new Arai XD-3.

Bring it!!

I'd love to go if you don't mind a south sound lurker jumping in on the action.

We had a good ride,I had not been on the Naches Trail for a couple of years and never been over it on my 640,lots steeper than I remember also lots of "Baby Head" sized rocks to jump out at you. DisTech your project bike is just the ticket to handle all the riding we did today,Hope to get together again soon for another ride....Eric.
