Rides in Spokane and Idaho area

I have been here About 9 months. Kinda depressing with snow.

Looking for people to ride with, and show me hidden routes that google maps dont have, For street bikes. I rode Wellpinit to Coulee Damn. Im looking for roads similar to Cache Creek Road. Its definitely the best road since I have been riding here.

I also ride dirt and supermoto. Local rides hooli around.

I am tryng to get a early start before the snow melts.

Check back once the roads are safe to ride, usually around May (until all the gravel has been cleared.)
There are often rides posted.

Also keep a eye out for the Return to Kamiah ride in the Tri Cities section. Typically mid to end of April- beginning of May.

I need to get out that way this summer. I keep passing it on the way to Colville and it sounds soooo damn attractive!

I rode flowery a few times. Awesome road. But kinda fast. 120mph was constant. I like a bit tighter roads you can have fun on and a bit safer.

You have no idea. Hit me or any of a dozen others up sometime this summer. We'll ruin other roads for you.

Last time I was on that road, it wasn't fun.

I was leading a group, and we fell in behind some wannabe dirtbag on an H-D with his skanky-sketchy meth-bitch on the back.
He kept trying to crash by constantly hitting the brake only in the corners, and needlessly accelerating hard on the few passing straights, almost as if his manhood depended on keeping the four sportbikes and two cruisers I was riding with behind him, lest we sprinkle him with pink flowers and glitter as we passed.
Tedious does not begin to describe the journey.

That, and the earlier experience that same day with an overweight 1970s brothel-madame-looking chick with a penchant for fashion reminiscent of Stevie Nicks circa 1981, who almost lost her balance as she tore out of the Zips parking lot in St. Maries riding what I can only guess was her incarcerated husband/old mans cruiser.
She must have felt...nay, been compelled by the universe at large...that she absolutely had to flip us the bird as a civic duty, or perhaps even as an informal, but uniquely local version of: "Welcome to our lovely city in the picturesque panhandle of Idaho! Do enjoy your stay, strangers!"
Mind you, we had just pulled in for lunch and she was pulling out with a bag and drink tray precariously balanced on the tank. Our paths hadn't crossed before that moment.

2/10, would not recommend for riding.

However...

10/10 for entertaining and gloriously colorful fauna.

St. Maries is a unique place. Too bad you have to pass through on the way to Harrison...

yes I rode that road.. also hwy 3, 5, etc. st joe river/avery.. last 10 miles was dirt road to get back to I90 puts you out on st regis.

I like 97 but too many driveways and patrols. Its a nice road to go!

I like the back tight roads that flow and Hwy 12 looks promising to montana.

I have explored just about every twisty back road north of Spokane last season. That can be found by google maps. There can be so many more roads if it were paved. Also did a day trip to Canada. It was 450 miles. I wish the twisties are closer for me to hit up on a weekday after work, but most of them are flat.
