Afternoons are fairly quiet and you won't have to worry about the OPD. They don't do any real parking enforcement on the weekends. I park in the yellow all weekend long.

    We must share a gene…similar bikes and a love of IPAs.

    I can remember trying Redhook’s Ballard Bitter, which has now morphed into Long Hammer, back in the early 90s and I just couldn’t get it down…way too bitter!

    Now, I have little patience for anything but IPAs! Plus, you get all the antiseptic benefits from the hops…makes drinking IPAs a healthy choice. :thumb Yeah, I tried that one on my doctor a while ago…nothing but tumbleweeds and crickets. :jack

    Looking forward to the 14th! :johntm

    I'll be posting a new Middle-Sound location next week.

    Be on the lookout and we'll hope to see you there!

    I'd like to thank everyone that has viewed and posted in the 3 threads dedicated to meeting ADV Riders and building community.

    I just noticed that all 3 threads below are currently in the Top 10 of all threads started in 2007 in the Pacific Northwest regional forum based on number of posts! And, this has all happened since March 5th! Amazing!

    To me, this says a lot about the ADV Rider community in the Pacific Northwest and our commitment to making this region a great place to own and ride our beloved DS machines.

    Keep up the good work and thanks again for all the effort! :thumb

    ANYONE INTERESTED IN TAKING A BLAST THROUGH CAPITOL FOREST BEFORE THE MAG GET TOGETHER IN OLYMPIA SATURDAY? I'LL BE AT THE SPAR CAFE IN DOWNTOWN OLYMPIA AT 8:00 AM FOR GRUB. I HAVE MY OLD MAP OF CAPITOL FOREST. I'M SURE THE MAIN LINES ARE ALL STILL THERE. A 50-100 MILE LOOP SHOULD GET AN APITITE AND THIRST GOING FOR GOOD FOOD AND DRINK AT THE FISH BOWL:freaky RAIN OR SHINE, IT'S ALL GOOD:lol3 .

    The "A-Line" road was blocked by trees last weekend. The B, C, and D were open with the D_Line being paved. We did not try the E-Line as it was marked blocked on my map - but that may only apply to cages. Enjoy

    Headed to the Fisbowl on Thursday the 14th and bringing a friend or two from the PDX area. See you FFs sometime around or after 1:00.
    We will be taking a scenic route.
    Springs, how late do you have to work?
    We will likely want to make it back befor it gets too late as those oversize mice on the mountain passes suck.

    I'm interested. I'd like to ride my XR400. It's plated, but I'm not gonna drone down I-5 for an hour on that bike. Is there a place to park a pickup near there while we're out in the woods?

    I'll bring a GPS so we can find our way back out! :lol3

    I'm going to head down as early as I can get my ass out of bed...so that means I'll be leaving by about 8:ish. It's a couple hours for me on the road so I should roll up around 10:ish...maybe early enough for some breakfast at Spar?

    I'd love to go on a ride, if y'all are still around at Spar... :thumb

    Now, can I get any of the Middle- and North-Sounders to come with? That is the question...and hopefully "shit yes" is the answer!

    Guys: who's up for a morning run to Oly? Maybe meet at TT around 8:00AM...yes, in the AM. C'mon!

    Who's in???

    THERE ARE PLACES TO PARK AT THE MT. MOLLY ENTRANCE. IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE BEEN IN THE AREA, BUT IT'S ALWAYS BEEN VERY BIKER FRIENDLY. :clap I'LL BE HANGING OUT AT THE SPAR WAITING FOR ANYONE THAT WANTS TO JOIN IN. IT'S A SHORT RIDE FROM DOWNTOWN OUT AROUND BLACK LAKE. I'LL TRY NOT TO EAT ALL THE HASH BROWNS BEFORE YA'LL GET THERE:evil .

    Hey Riders!

    There's a bit of a buzz happening over at this THREAD about a ride through BC in June or July. The dates are still getting sorted out.

    You might want to check it out! :D
