Thumbs up Spiral Highway aka "the old Lewiston grade"

Spiral Highway. One of my favorite roads in the beautiful Pacific Northwest...

I haven't been on the old Lewiston grade in a couple years, and I planning a return this month.

How's the surface? Law enforcement? Same as it always has been?

Thumbs up

About the same as always. Highway Patrol station on the highway.

Other great rides in the area - Winchester grade
Greer Grade - Grangemount - P1 loop
Hwy 13 - 14 - Elk City road
etc (Lolo - Rattelsnake)

We have organized several rallies in the area and there are some good - great loops in that area. We rode over 1,000 miles in the area and didn't cover them all. Rally was based out of Kamiah. If you are interested - and I can find where I posted them - PM me and I will send a copy to you.

Picts when you get back, or the ride didn't happen.

  Peoples nerves at times.
Sheriff's office is at the bottom of the road. You come ripping down...you end up at their place.

Good as always

Run it and move on.....to Anatone, Rattlesnake, and Buford Grade. Multiple repeated runs or big groups will probably attract attention. Ride smart.

Riding the grade has never been a problem, even with the new Sheriff's office at the bottom. I don't ride like a crazy man either.
