Dicks 1145 meet. All bikes/riders welcome .
Wish I could but I will be in MN.
Too bad: no good roads in MN!
Anybody been through there this year? I'm wondering what the conditions are?
Cause that's what it was like last time I was up there.
The skiing was fun though. :thefinge:
ya, I've got my fingers crossed that it's clean. I think well be taking it easy anyhow.
Went up there 2 weeks ago and the west side is clear but the east side didn't winter so well. A lot of gravel and some nasty potholes. Be safe.
Thanks for the heads up
From my experience that road's no good till about middle of July to the first of august otherwise I'd probally come. That's a long commute to half as that super highway if you all know what i mean.
This route isn't set in stone...If anyone has other ideas, please let us know.
What is the "Flowery trail" route?
hunnert-fitty mile an ur awesomeness.
bullshit!! I don't know any real riders that do it that slow.
I bomb thru there up-on-one at 250mph on my turboed 600.
The road sucks assholes. It's too far away. Too bumpy. Too sandy. Too many RV's. Too much LEO. My advice? Stay the fuck away!
Alternate route possibility---have not rode it this year---back roads to Blanchard ID from Highway 2 side, then north to almost Newport---take a right, follow road that ends up coming down by the river near Priest River on opposite side of river, ride east on a great twisty to highway 95 or until boredom sets in and turn around and repeat. Up behind Mt Spokane could easily be sandy this time of year, other roads getting there sometimes a little bumpy---later in ride roads should usually be in good shape. Anything around this neck of the woods in mountainous or slightly mountainous areas often still have sand or potholes or frost heave or something until later in the year---. Wellpinit is amazingly clean this year, sounds like highway 57 around CDA is clean---but those have already been done by many. Or if anybody wants to bench race at my house, motogp and motogp2 is on tomorrow---so show up at 5am for them motogp if you want to see it live or near live. :fallinga: Or it is on at noon and 1pm, or we could watch a recording (don't have a high def recorder yet) anytime b/4 or after a ride----or not. The racing in motogp has not been too shabby this year, the racing in motogp2 has been frickin awesome. :scared:headbang::big_duel:
It's too early to start riding this year.
You are up kinda early, aren't you? I thought it was only us senior citizens that could not sleep in. :roll: It is never too early to ride---if you have the right equipment---like a snowmobile. ha
I cod get a snow bike attachment for my 450
