Thanks guys. It looks like it's going to be another good day for a ride.
Yesterday Nanc and I put on 50 miles on the hack. finished off the day with dinner at Twiggs North with friends. Gotta love Spokane!
Today, starting off with Bloomsday, then maybe another drive in the hack up to Greenbluff.
You went by my house and didn't even stop to say hi
Is the GS back up and running?
If I can get my forks remounted I'll be out at the Riverside ORV park next weekend doing some ADV bike training/practice
Yeah I got it back in march and have put about 3,000 miles on it since. And added lots of farkles.
Speaking of hitting deer, my dad just hit one on his Multistrada going over Sherman Pass about 3 hours ago. He seems to be ok, but his leg is pretty bad. Still waiting on updates. Watch out for those critters everyone.
Sorry to hear about dad's deer strike Landon, I hope he has a speedy recovery.
Sorry to hear about the deer - hopefully he will be back out there soon. I spooked a few deer (and myself) up around mt spokane today on some logging roads. Me thinks Bambi likes spring foliage
Just to clarify - he, being your dad, not the deer
Yes of course. From the sounds of it I don't think the deer had a chance.
Hope you dad's leg heals quickly.
Best to your dad. How'd the Multi come out? Lot's of damage or...?
As dry as it was overall.... the muddy butt still lived up to its name in spots..
At one point I had my bike up to the tank in mud.. 4 laps per rider in the Heavyweight (250+ CC)
My partner and I pulled 8th in our class out of 34 teams. Not sure about overall.
Nice job. I've heard there are some colossal water/mud holes down there.
I take that northwest part of your route all the time, with devils gap in there. Usually come around the pallouse on the back side.
Good job. It's nice to see you rewarded the bike with a beer, it needed something to wash all that mud down with.
Sunday was a great day for a ride. I met Rainbow007 at 9:00 am and we headed toward Murray, ID.

Following the Coeur d Alene river is always fun no matter what time of year
We headed to Settlers_Grove to take a walk
We almost made it to the trailhead before we were stopped by snow. We were close enough to walk in so no problem.
Eagle creek was high, flowing hard but yet extremely clear. The snow melt had the water a nice shade of blue.
Lots of things to look at in the grove
After the walk in the cedar grove we went to the Sprag Pole for lunch. Yum.
The ride back along the river was just as nice as it was that morning but this just looked cold to me.
It was a nice day riding with a good friend.
I've been meaning to ride out that way to see where the snow levels are; you answered that question! :huh
Very jealous of that ride. That area is my home away from home. I still hang onto the Shoshone license plate on one of my cars, and I still have the "208-512-xxxx" prefix (silver valley) on my cell phone. My wife and I have been talking about riding out to the Sprag Pole for lunch one of these days. Dang kids make everything so difficult!
Have you ever continued the hike through the grove of cedars? The hiking trail turns to single track and continues (apparently into MT). We followed it for about 4 hours to the top of the mountains to where we lost the trail at logging roads. We were convinced that we were finally going to reach the limit of our dog's endless energy after that hike, but she slept for about 20 minutes on the way home, hopped out of the car and wanted me to throw the tennis ball.
I finally had a chance to sit down and read your DV RR, Ladybug. Very well done! A good friend of mine has been there multiple times and always talks it up. I always thought he was just a little different, but your pics are making me want to go!! Looking forward to more.
Where is this trail and can I ride it?
Don't think that my wife was't sick of hearing me say, "I wish we could ride this!"
It is strictly a hiking trail, and there are a few switchbacks and rock climbs right out of the grove that would make it impossible to try. Not to mention, I don't think people would think too kindly of us squeezing by on the bikes while they are gawking at the cedars! I've actually thought about finding the back way in from the logging roads and riding the top section...
