Starting to look at the calendar for the riding season. Anyone interested in the Black Dog?


It looks like it fits in my schedule. The big question I guess will be to ride there or play it safe and trailer the bike just in case I break something, me or the bike.

I've had years when I couldn't make it to the top until June. Snow pack on the clearwater is 123% of normal. Most of the snow is pretty high.

I would have preferred Saturday but I had a commitment in Spokane. Eric has been fishing above Pittsburgh Landing and said he was surprised how fast the snow has left the canyon and only visible near the top.

I thought about it, but in conflicts with the Wallowa ride. I'm going over with my travel trailer that Sunday and am spending the week riding.

I went to the Black Dog ride a couple of years ago when it was out of Sandpoint. It was a good ride.

The Black Dog out of Sandpoint is a vendor this Black Dog is the long standing AMA dual sport event. Two very different events, both fun I'm sure, but different. The first caters to KTMs the second is all sorts of riff raff (my type of place).

I'm headed to Black Dog for the weekend then headed to Enterprise Sunday evening for the Jamboree.

I didn't read the flier. I just saw Black Dog. I'm not sure I have the time to do both the rides.

Just do the same thing I'm doing - Go to Black Dog Fri. ride Sat. and maybe Sunday morning then head to Enterprise. Easy Peasy Although that does add a few miles to your trip.

I guess that does make sense. Are you going to do the AA ride with me?

Has anyone stopped by that new Motorsports shop in Palouse? If so what crowd do they cater to?

I think I'll pass on that idea but thanks for the invite.

Yes. I've been in twice to poke around. Really nice guy and fun to talk too. I was there over 30 minutes once just talking with him. He let me see what he was working on in the back. He had a partner, but the partner sort of backed out on him.

Believe it or not he is really more of a snowmobile shop. He can also hook you up with a snowbike kit (track kit) for your dirtbike. He knows a lot about sleds and the snowbikes. They have been here for a couple of years now. From what I recall, they were mainly an online company that sort of got asked to setup a store front.

He doesn't have a tire machine but he does have levers. He has a bunch of basics like fuel line and oil. Kind of this and that. He said that he could probably order some things if somebody wanted something in particular. Mainly the only bike things he really has are the things that will also work with a snowmobile.

Doesn't hurt to stop in to ask about what you need and talk with him. He might be able to help you or he might direct you somewhere else.

So not exactly this then?

Gas tanks not showing up until Monday for the KLR, tried to patch the old one, no luck. Guess I'll drive up and check out the Spokane motorcycle show.

Sorebutt an I had a great ride to Red River and then dropped down to Elk City for lunch. Stopped in Grangeville for a few minutes to see my grandkids and then home via Nezperce and Gifford. Wouldn't have made it without our heated gear.

Glad you guys had a good ride.
