Tomorrow is the big day. I stated in my original post that I would be leading a group from the Clearwater Starbucks parking lot at 9:00 AM....but since no one indicated they were interested in riding with my group....I am going to leave directly from my south Kennewick home and meet Wistrick at Pilot Rock around 11:00 AM if anyone is interested in meeting us there.

Ride safe everyone!

If I might ask, how were the roads out that way. Some friends and I, are heading out there next weekend for our annual Rattlesnake Grade and FS-39 run. Did anybody take those roads, and if so how are they?

The improved part of FS-39 (the red line on this map) is spectacular. Endless sweepers, pavement like a pool table. But leaves were starting to fall, so there aren't many weeks left of nailing it through blind curves.

Above that it gets pretty beat up, to the point that it will test your suspension and your grip in places. Lumpy and broken asphalt, sometimes marked but not always. It's not a speedy run between the overlook turnoff and Joseph.

Thanks for the reply Warp. Sounds like it's the same as last fall when we last rode it. Like most mountain forest service roads, I always expect a new nasty awaiting the spring thaw. Just hoping that it's not too much worse than it was last year.

The weather and riding was once again perfect in Baker City this year. Nice to see some of the faces from the PNW Moto group. I continued my ride and covered 1944 miles in 9 days on the road. Saw some friends that I do not see very often which is always nice and also saw some pretty parts of this country. Bike performed perfectly. I rolled home at 4 PM last Thursday. Now have a trip report completed.

You can see the photos I took in Baker City here: Baker City 2018

And if you want to see photos from my trip or read the trip report that can be found here: September 2018 Bike Trip

Hope to see people again next year in Baker City.
