    I didn't make the podium. I'm not that fast and my partner had some brake issues that slowed him down. Andrew (#44) was 2nd in class, Mike (#515) was 3rd with partner (and inmate) DylanJ.

    I met your friend Seth. He was iron manning the race, but had an un-scheduled departure from his bike that required alternate means of leaving the race course unfortunately. He was ok later when I spoke to him.

    That was me! Good meeting you Paul. Looking back on it, if I seemed a little off I was still kind of loopy when we were talking at the end. Its all kind of fuzzy but at least I got my first Razr ride. Medics said I was likely just fatigued/dehydrated and minimally concust (he didn't seem to think so), if that.

    I'll agree that the course wasn't especially tight by trail riding standards, but trying to race through that stuff really put the hurt on my conditioning (lack thereof).

    I iron manned the Muddy Butt in 2012, which is early season and a lot rougher course. Definitely was probably dehydration/fatigue. Lots more prep when you're a mere mortal like us.

    My friend Andrew was doing 27 minute laps, Dylan was 29-30, I was doing 31-32 minute.

    These are all rough estimates from what I recall them saying, I may be wrong on those times.

    Yikes, pretty sure you beat me. Assuming we started at noon and not later I was averaging somewhere between 35 and 40 min. through 3 laps.

    Hello Fellow Spokanites,

    I am in the market for a winter project. I want to refurbish a 1988-1990 Honda NX250. If anyone knows someone that might have one in the back barn collecting dust please let me know. It doesn't have to be in bad shape or be a project bike it just needs to be in my budget.:1drink

    TIA

    Hello All,

    I was wondering if anyone has thought about a ride on Saturday, October 26. Looks like Saturday is supposed to be beautiful!! Any takers message me, or reply, or even email me. gegcontroller@gmail.com.

    Was thinking some sort of a lunch/late lunch/dinner ride. Any suggestions would be welcomed. I am new to Spokane, and still looking for some riders to hangout with. As much as I love riding solo, I want to meet some people and meet up and ride somewhere, and then have a bite. Let me know!

    Cheers!

    Hi Chris,

    I am kind of on my way out of town for a while, but what type of riding do you do? Dual-sport? Touring? Hardcore/badass woods guy?

    It looks like we need to get together for a lunch ride Saturday. It's been awhile since we've gotten together and a fall ride seems to be in order.

    How about a ride up to Murray for lunch at the Spragpole? The leaves along the river should be pretty colors right now. :flug

    I can't leave until probably 11:00 am so it will be a street ride for me. Someone want to lead a dirt ride with the idea of everyone ending up at the Spragpole at ablout the same time?

    If anyone wants to ride with me meet at the Conoco Station on the S. side of I-90 on Mission between Argonne and Mullan. I'll be there at 11:00 am.


    So who wants to lead a dirt ride for those that want something more exciting than what I plan to do?

    Let's ride :ricky

    Kootenai Rider,

    I have a V-Strom 650 ADVenture and am very much at home touring, though I am finding more and more interest in the '2-Track' way of life, especially if it ends up bringing me to a view point, or a campsite!

    Not gonna make it to the Spragpole on Saturday folks. I need to get the beemer put back together after a major brake system failure a few weeks ago. Another case of brilliant technological engineering nullified by poor manufacturing and quality control.

    Have good time everyone!

    XR4Ever, don't you want to lead out a dirt ride to the Spragpole for the dirty ADVers? Just time it to end up there at about 1:00 pm.

    Where's everyone? we have a new kids to meet and few welcome :deal

    A19, It's going to be too nice of a day to stay home working on a bike. That can wait, bring Connie out I thinks she's wearing her dancing shoes and wants to get out and do some dancing.

    Kootenai Rider, have fun at the 24 hour race and the rest of the adventure ahead of you. Spo/Cda just isn't going to be the same without you. :(:


    Live2Ride, we haven't seen you in a long, long time. I suppose you are working this weekend? Do I have to go to Rockford if I want to see you?

    MotoNerd, looking forward to meeting you.

    OK who else is coming out to play Saturday?

    I never said I wasn't taking Connie dancing... :D We just can't make it to Murray. I need to ride to Westside to pick up a part then run a few more errands in Medical Lake and Nine Mile Falls.
    I hope to be home working on it about the time you guys are wrapping up lunch.

    Does anyone know a good paved route from Medical Lake to Nine Mile Falls on the west side of the river?
