Dont tell anyone about Penny Creek Road, just outside of Quilcene that runs North thru the Eastern Olympics- turns into FR 27, then FR 28 and ends up in Sequim.


Mum's the word, ok?

Anyone available to ride on Thursday the 7th or Friday the 8th? I'm getting done earlier in Oregon and wanna go riding before the week-end, this week-end's full of family obligations for me.


It's doable on a streetbike although about 25 miles are gravel.


I'd like to:
Meet up at Bainbrige ferry at (I'll check) like 9:30,
ride to Quilcene. Rest stop at Ranger station.
Penny Creek road to FR 27- it turns into FR28 and endis up in a neighborhood in Sequim.
Ride to Kingston ferry.

About 200 miles, zero super slab.

Anyone wanna play hookey late next week?

I just might be up for a Thursday of Friday ride.

Could be a darn good time! Breakfast at Loggers Landing in Quilcene could be an attraction, too.

The less street riding on those suckers the better. I wore mine down fast when I had the GS. I switched to Dunlops and rode everything from highway to mud and rock just peachy.

Which Dunlops? I'm considering putting knobbies or knobby like tires on my GS, something with some dirt traction and still road friendly, i.e. quiet, smooth, and grip. Is there such a tire?

Next question; can anyone (shop) swap tires on a GS (spoke wheels) or is this a BMW only job?

Do Tell - If there is a happy middle ground so I can do the road and then the Naches run - I am all for it ??????

Enjoy

Theres a lot of places out there that can do it for you, just call and ask. I may check out East side motosport, there is also Eastside Kawi and a place called Cyclepath (I know that is not the correct spelling) I've been told there a good shop over here on the eastside. There is Valentine motors http://www.vmwmotorcycles.com and he is in Ballard. There's been some good posts about him and I think Gentry has used Seattle Cycle center. I used them seveal years ago and they treated me real good but when I found some tires I was looking to by in the Flea market here and bring them in the guy there wanted to charge me a 120 surcharge to bring in my own tires and he was a prick on the phone.

ive had too many beers right now to remember...
BUT....Youve been out with me when on them. They are somewhere between the Tourances and the 80's. Semi-aggressive. Never let me down. I even rode some trails at Reiter on them. If you really want to get gnarly the 80's are the way to go though...

I got them at that BMW-Dealer-In-Seattle-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named place but Seattle Cycle Center can talk to ya's.

Also, I was talking to the blokes at Aurora Suzuki and they were pushing some new DS tyres that they are getting in. Much cheaper and theyve apparently got good report. Dunno if theyve got them for the GS but they might.....


Just looked - Im only finding the D607's for the GS....dunno if they are the same. They dont look as aggressive as the ones I had but I could be wrong.

Ive pretty much ridden on Dunlops on all my bikes and will continue to do so. But I had nothing bad to say about the 80's. They were good.

Thanks, Chad.

Now back to the beer.
