Riding this week?

Anybody going riding this long weekend? I'm itching to get in the dirt myself...

It might turn into a good weekend for a street ride (traffic will be bad in some directions though)...

What y'all thinking?

Nice idea, and I am going to be in your general neighborhood, but I will be tromping uphill in the snow and playing on glaciers. I'll wave from the top though.

Ya? Are you a ski to sea touristy type? That event is the BEST reason to leave town this weekend!

No skis on my boots, just crampons. We are taking the new students to play in crevasses on Baker then pushing for the Sherman Peak summit. The only sliding that I will be doing is glissading back down.

I'm going to see if I can get the dirt one back together tomorrow. I'm still fighting the massive mess of wires from my LED light bar (originally intended for an automobile) and piss-poor Trailtech stator wiring.

I am NOT impressed with Trailtech and wish I'd have gone with BajaDesigns or simply anyone else. Connections don't fit coming from the stator to my STOCK CRF450. Kit was also incomplete and they told me to,"just ziptie the battery in your air filter box." That works terrible when racing/riding offroad as I can attest... I thought I purchased what was pictured in their ad which included a battery velcro holder but they said they were out and "tough luck buddy."

(In essence, "We got your money so you're screwed. It's not our problem you're having problems with our kit that was nearly $400 and incomplete".) Honestly, I don't care how nice they are on the phone with customer service, I just want the items I PAID for. Is that really too much to ask?


We may just go for a street ride...

I am in for a street ride.

I am in Tumwater area and only staying away from coastal areas where it is drizzling today.

Have a day without wife or kid - so I am definitely itching for two wheels and some folks meet and ride with

Ended up getting called in for work today. Just enough to ruin throwing a ride together. Hope y'all got some two wheel therapy in!

Saturday we went over the Old Blewett Pass road. Haven't been there in many years. I had heard that WSDOT had stopped maintaining the road, but there was not nearly as much rubble on the road as I expected. Does anyone clear the road of rocks and gravel once a year or so?
