330 miles.
Did a loop, North and West Curlew, Republic, Tonasket, Omak, south to the Grand Coulee Dam, East and back North


Here's a photo of a burned area east of Curlew this morning. My friend on my old shadow, and my bike.

Great weather.


Neck muscle sore now.


It's worth it though.

Thumbs up quick sunset ride

i had ridden my wing up to my grandmothers, as we were having Pizza with visiting family. on the way back home, the temperature was perfect, so i informed family that i would be taking a short ride to enjoy it.

I rode to town limits in one direction, then back the other way, and decided to ride RT133, as i know it has good views. as i was nearing the intersection of 133/156, i turned right onto RT156, toward Wilton, and my timing was perfect. the sun had just gone down, turning the surrounding hills a deep purple, as far as the eye could see. i didn't stop long, as i don't ride much at night, and now i know what i have been missing.
The ride back home, on the main road (RT2&4) was not as moving, as the traffic headlights washed out any views.

if i had one word to describe this ride, it would be "endorphins". took me forever to calm down enough to go to sleep.

I road east that are coming across the top last summer. Great ride. I spent the night in Omak and th3n wet east. I am jealous that you do it and stay home. Might not be the same fire but there was a lot burning in July last year.

Hi Ray

Yeah it's fun to be close to some awesome riding.

If you're ever doing it again, try south from Republic I think it's hiway 21 to Keller ferry.

The first 15 miles out of Republic looks like post card material.

Many routes to take, lots to see in this area.

The fire up by Curlew was a few years ago

Total devastation, sterilized the ground, last year they was nothing green in spots.

This year now there's green on the ground.

Take it easy

I rode 95 miles along the Pryor Mountains and met only three cars. I had breakfast then in Hardin and then rode to Hysham and had lunch in Custer. Was a great ride.

Got a call from my Buddy Jeff H. he want somebody to B.S. with while he waxed on of his bikes. I got there just as he was finishing up, so we decided to go gas the bikes up for tomorrows Freedom Isn't Free, flag ride. Barely got started and I could see this was going to tunn into more than a fuel run. WE HEADED WEST and ended up at Wood's Coffee shop in the mini mall at Birch Bay Lynden rd and old hwy 99. Then back to Everson for fuel and home. Nice easy ride.

Thumbs up 72 miles of "around town", with a few twisties

all day long, i was trying to think of where to ride. then i had an epiphany, why does a ride need a destination? being a fun ride, the destination is home, by way of who knows where.


I headed out, still not knowing my route, and wound up heading to New Vinyard. then i took a crossover road to Strong, right by Porter Lake (some nice twisties, if you can handle the road condition). leaving strong, i headed back toward Farmington, but not to home, yet. at which point i realized there was road construction just out of Strong, with gravel. not the nicely packed variety, but the looser variety, with pea sized stones, aka marbles.
once back in Farmington, i headed toward Wilton, but turned onto Rt 133. then a left onto Rt 156, through Chesterville, and some weak twisties, then back toward Farmington. at this point, i started to realize my AirHawk2 seat pad had gone flat on me. dang neighborhood cats! so i cut short a perfectly good aimless ride, and headed home. looks like i will have to dunk the air-bladder into water and find the leak.


but overall, it was a good ride to build up my distance more, and fun as well.
