Road racing in the NW. Here is the start of an Open Supersport heat (?) race at Spokane Raceway Park in April of '00 in a snow storm. We had rain, snow, and ground fog 6' high when the sun came out that day. I thought these guys on GSXR1100s were nuts, but I had slicks on my SV650 that day?

How about some dirt riding in downtown Seattle?! This was 10 years ago or so, but this is right off Elliott where the driving range is now. We actually rode here quite a few times after my buddy called the city to see if we could, they said OK? The cops came a few times, but let us keep riding. That's Queen Ann hill in the backround.





Here is looking out towards Alki and West Seattle across the bay, with Magnolia on the right.

You will be forced to become a better rider in the NW as the tight terrain requires it (although there is mucho desert in Wa state too).

No more pin it and go in the trees. Just a FYI.

Different every day, depending if it's snowing, raining, mild, or cold. That's the fun thing about snow, the same road can be totally different every day. Last week I was able to do the Keechelus ridge loop, it was like riding on a ski slope. (before it was groomed for snowmobile/snow park use).



Top of Keechelus Ridge.
