    You'd better have an intact sense of humor. Any other senses are useless with this bunch.

    First we laugh, then we ask if you are ok, next we ridicule you, finally we forget what we were talking about, last we help...

    Don't forget the taking of photographs, bonus points if someone had a GoPro running.

    Maybe I should get one of those selfie sticks, so I can earn my own bonus points.

    I moved from Maple Valley to here in 2013. One of the better accidents I have had for sure.

    so far, this place is fantastic! I am so looking to get out and ride. I just finally unpacked the bikes from the trailer. Can't wait to meet and ride with you all!
    I will gladly help pick up a bike and I excel a pointing and laughing at others, so it sounds like I will fit right in. :)

    I think some Turkey Bay riding is in order for this trip. I always get turned around and keep going circles... :norton

    There are some areas north and west I want to explore; i overlayed the turkey OHV map into basecamp and hope to get a few tracks to follow...

    Thinking about trying to connect 2 roads via shoreline...
    I know i've ridden on western shoreline before. Any restrictions? Troy, do you have a snorkel for the GS yet ?!?

    Hey, I might be able to join ya'll Friday and Saturday. I'd have to leave early Sunday morning. Would that be ok? Is this suitable for a DR350?

    If so, do I need to make a reservation or can I share a space with someone? I fine either way but am happy to pitch my tent with someone on an already reserved space.

    Hey there...your DR will be right at home at LBL. Many will probably leave lunchtime Sunday anyway so you should be good there too. I have a site and sharing already. Maybe someone else will chime in if they have room.

    Hell, I'm in a hammock and Elad will probably sleep in his truck. You can stay with us...

    The shoreline is huge since the lake is at winter pool level. I can't imagine not being able to ride it all the way around
