Hopefully, we'll be hooking up down at the track. Bluesurf will be there as well...

You can NOT get to the forest service road that leads to RTP from Granite Falls, the Mountain Loop Hwy. is still washed out. You have to get to it from the Darrington side.

I have a suggestion when it comes to a meeting place and or breakfast, "Broosters" in down town Arlington has better food then Dennys and is on the way to Darrington and all points north and east. No I don't have the address, it's located about half way down the main street of town, here's a photo of the place, you can't miss it.

That's my R1, in the middle of the pack, we had breakfast here on our way up to the "Holy Smoke" for lunch.

Keep me in the loop for this ride. Oh, what is with you guys and these EARLY starts, I need my rest and beauty sleep to keep up with you youngsters Could we start later and play longer I am up for doing this ride on any day but would prefer to do it when it's not pouring rain with that thought in mind, is summer ever going to come to the Nor-Wet this year

I'd be happy to start later if you want to come! We could do with your knowledge. Would you bring the GS or the DRZ?
Never eaten at that place so Im game



What time suits you guys?

Howdy Chad,

That sounds about right, Broosters is easy to find and the food is good at a decent price. I am up for meetin and eatin where ever you folks want too, I am just partial to Broosters rather then Dennys Would meeting at 9:AM be to late?

I'll be riding the DRZ400S, much more fun especially if the roads are a bit wet or the rocks have grown since my last crossing Going east out of Darrington on the MLH will take you to Forest service road #27, taking that north to FSR #2700, will take you over RTP. From there if the group wanted to we could run Hwy. #530 to FSR #28, then FSR #2810, and ride up FSR #2811, to the Fire Tower. That makes a nice loop type ride with lots of photo ops. Don't forget riding the ditch on the north side of Hwy. #530 that's always good for a few laughs.

Howdy All,

For those who are planing on attending this event and "eating" at Broosters, Broosters is not a fast food place like Dennys, if we want to actually be on the road by Chads suggested "leave time" of 9:45, don't show up at 9:30 and expect to get your breakfast in time to leave at 9:45

I plan on being there a bit before 9:00, there is a large table that is located right next to the big window in front of the restaurant, whoever gets there first, if that table hasn't been taken grab it for the group. "Usually" there is plenty of parking right in front of this window.

Lets hope the rain Gods are on vacation this Saturday and that perhaps some sun will shine on us during the day. Be advised that if it is raining we will be riding up and into it on this ride, come prepared, whiners will be stripped of their gear, their bikes burned, their naked bodies left to feed the local critters

Howdy Stosh23,

The ditch ride is optional, I have done it on my R1150GS, many times. However, beware of the drive-ways, a person can get some serious air if your not careful. DAWIKT

Well, Sybil is definitely staying in the garage this weekend, but there's always the Wailing Smoke Bomb.

I can show for breakfast & ride out to the trailhead with y'all. That way I don't miss all the fun. Besides, the old girl likes the twisties...
