This is a list I posted in PNWR Angels and thought it would make a good blog. I've highlighted the women only rides. Had more annual rides, like the one I met my late finace on, but unfortunately it's no longer around. Willing to add more to the list. Hope to see you there for some this year or next.

Roads: New vs. Familiar

Updated 06-03-2012 at 08:29 PM by Diva (Adding categories)

Kind of been blogging about my ride experiences and thought I'd try it on this forum. So welcome to my 1st official PNWR blog. Enjoy!

Thanks to Destination Highways (no this is not an ad for them but they are highly recommended), Iíve had the pleasure of exploring a lot of back roads throughout Western Washington and several in Eastern WA. I have several local favorites, but I yearn to find new roads (well roads new to me) for that since of discovery, the thrill of the unexpected,...

Adventures of a Biker Chic||It's been a while!

Well... It's no longer Adventures of a Harley Chic Rider...

We traded my V-Rod in last year, 2011, for what you see in my pic to the left: Yamaha FZ6-R. I LOVE it! His name is SPARTACUS I think I'll change my post titles to: Adventures of a Biker Chic!

I haven't really ridden a whole lot in the past 2.5 yrs. I wrecked my V-Rod in August 2010. Not too much damage on the bike... On me however, was a total different monster. I tore up my left knee and shoulder. I didn't...

Those of you who know me know that I am an attorney.

I will follow this with a blog entry about what to do in Washington. In the meantime, while some of the legal information will be different in other states, the basis premise is the same.

DISCLAIMER (you knew there would be one): The information in this blog post is not intended as legal advice and is for informational purposes only.

So here are my tips:

Something New at Bosworth ORV Park

Posted 09-22-2010 at 02:35 PM by Gamuru (The Path Less Traveled)

I went for a cruise after work last night and ended up at the ORV park south of Lake Bosworth. It seems the DNR folks have been busy removing and/or replacing culverts in the park. Here's what I ran into about mid-park:


(This is the stream draining from the beaver ponds.)

If I could make a request of my dirt bike and quad riding friends. Can you guys...

Hey Allstate!

Enough already with your slow-motion commercials of motorcycles crashing into things. You're killing me smashing up all those perfectly fine riding machines.

Bosworth ORV Park

Posted 07-24-2010 at 09:12 AM by Gamuru (The Path Less Traveled)

One word: WOW!

I had a blast! I'm feeling it this morning, though. A little sore from yesterday's escapades, but man, what a ride.

Just recently, I was tipped off to the location of an ORV park just south of Granite Falls by a customer of mine. After some poking around in people's backyards, I finally found a way in and discovered a little slice of heaven on Earth. The park is criss-crossed with tons of single track trails with most of them in the woods...

MVUM and You

Posted 07-11-2010 at 07:36 AM by Gamuru (The Path Less Traveled)

MVUM? What the hell does that stand for?!? Well, let me tell ya... Motor Vehicle Use Map. And you better have one with you the next time you decide to set a motorized tire on the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. That's right. Much like going fishing and hunting in this state, you'll need to have your lawyer on speed dial so you can consult with him before you turn down that gravel road or turn up that overgrown path. Is it really all that bad? Am I making a mountain out of a mole hill? Grab...

I ended up with just shy of 200 miles on the clock and I'm feeling it.

Rider Alert: If you're riding the gravel part of the Mt. Loop Highway be aware they filled in the potholes with marbles. This means every corner must be taken with caution: Pucker Factor 3.7.

Here's a rough map of where I went...
