A couple of other things you won't be able to see after following Craig's bike for a few minutes:

1- Craig.

2- Craig's dust cloud.

If we had some crackers, we could have beer & crackers, if we had some beer.

Did a little overnight ride last weekend. Didn't take a map and my iphone sucks as a GPS when I dont get a signal. Can anyone tell me where this was taken:



I had been on Tygh Ridge Road but it changed into something else right around where this pic was taken. Maybe Tygh Ridge Market Rd.?

The next day I tried to take Dodson Rd. out of Wamic to Hood River and was blocked by snow. But not before being launched from my bike by this:



That mud was slicker than goose shit. The Shinko on my rear completely lost traction. Fun times.

Bastid hardly never rode with me anyway, except at the Black Dog last year...
Oh yeah, and a Sherman County / John Day River crossing ride, just about a year ago right now.

...and now, it looks like he'll be jonesin' to do the "A Route" at this year's BD

At least Two ways:

1) Head up Hwy 141 from White Salmon, Take a right at BZ Corners on the "Glennwood Hwy" take another right after 10 miles or so on Lakefront, it'll take you to Fisher Hill Rd.

2) More gravel fun...Go up the Klickitat River Hwy a short distance to the train bridge (converted to trail) and take a left on Fisher Hill Rd, make sure you stop at it's bridge over the Klickitat River and walk down to see the river there, but watch out for Poison Oak, it's thick). Fisher Hill Rd will take you most all the way to Glennwood.

AWESOME set of riding loops, no matter which route you choose

Time to head Southeast for all you Hoodies. The roads are mostly dry and the dust hasn't built up yet. My V-strom is proving to be better off pavement than I anticipated. I just rode these routes two weeks ago on my DR350, so I had to try them on the Wee today after work. These trails are less than 10 minutes from my house. Just had to put that out there for all you city folk and alley sweepers.

I'm sure everyone will be riding this weekend as the weather is supposed to be epic!

I missed your post, until I saw it quoted.
How's that new job? It's obviously taking away from your ADV time....
That ride was about a year ago right now. Spring is here again


I need another ride up that Klickitat River Canyon, gawd that's a beautiful river.

I learned that last year as early as February.
Shitty, wet & muddy here....EPIC !! over there.

Don't wait until June to take his advice, the dust'll be rising by then
