Road report Hwy 112
I didn't ride it, but drove it going out to Lake Ozette. The road is in really bad shape from the start, to the T (Clallam Bay). Two gravel sections just after the repaired washed out road a few years ago. Lots of heaves and just plain torn up pavement. Probably from the logging trucks. On Friday, from the time I turned on to Hwy 112 to the T, I passed logging trucks every 5-10 miles in the oncoming lane. The road almost reminded me of FS25. Seems like the logging trucks have really torn the road up since I've been out that way last.
Be careful if you head out to Neah Bay. Not to discourage from riding out that way, just words to be careful. I'll be riding out there when the weather becomes better.

Bumping this thread to update the report on 112 conditions, as of Saturday, July 16. The two short gravel sections that Willow referenced above are still there. They are well marked with orange signs: "loose gravel" and "motorcycles use extreme caution". That area is now marked as a 25 mph zone.
There is also a section between Sekiu and Neah Bay that is down to one lane. It is controlled by an automated light that allows for alternating directions of traffic. They had a sign out that warned of gravel, but the section of road was paved. Poor condition pavement, but at least it wasn't loose gravel!
Have fun out there!

And one more update: I went out that way yesterday, and there is a new short gravel section. (This makes three total.) The new one is after a right-hand 15 mph hairpin. It is after the other two gravel spots and before the stop sign at the T-intersection. There are orange caution signs, but still, be careful out there.

Yup. The views and parks along the way are worth it to me.
Salt Creek is a hoot.
For the most part the roads are fine.
There are a few rough spots because the road bed is moving some more every year.
About the same as 202 to Astoria.
