    I'll keep my eyes on this post and try to join some of you guys for a ride. In the meantime, if anyone wants to get out on tarmac or dirt, drop me a pm. I have a flexible schedule and ride as often as possible.

    I would consider coming up from Portland on my 990 to ride some of these dual tracks. I will try and keep an eye on the thread. An over night stay is always an option too!

    I'd be up for an over nighter. All we'd need to do is figure out firewood...
    It was great! Up and over Capitol Peak, along the Chehalis river, out to Galvin, Hanaford, Tono, Bucoda, Johnson Creek, and home. Great day for it. Sunday, I went down to Astoria along Willipa bay, over to Kelso on 4, and then back north on back roads west of I5. Also, a great day!

    Look forward to catching up with you and some of the other folks in the future!

    I'm back in town if anyone is interested in going for a ride. Thinking about either riding up into the Olympia national forest on the south end, or doing a loop out to white pass, crossing the mountains to the north and coming back on I-90. Im interested more in dirt than street if anyone wants to join me.

    My rides are rarely planned out more than a day or two in advance. Hit me up the day before to remind me and I'll let you know. We've got a text group for ride invites on signal if you want to join. PM and your number and I'll add you.

    I'm gonna ride tomorrow, departing around 10 am. Haven't decided on capitol forest or Olympic national forest yet, but no matter what, it will include lots of fire roads. If you want to join me, let me know.

    Hey, I am happy to find your thread, I am riding my 1090 up from CA to attend MotoAmerica Superbikes at The Ridge in Shelton next weekend 6/25-27.

    Never been up there, just now looking at maps of the area and looking forward to doing some exploring before or after the weekend!

    Awesome. I sent you a link. We use an app called signal and we are trying to build a network of people around here that do the ADV thing. If you know anyone else who rides regularly, point them in my direction.

    Escaped the heat by running to the coast today. 112F in town, but a refreshing 69F at the beach!
