  • Whose In for North Cascades Ride August 1-4?

    As was discussed in the 2 West Thread, I am hosting any who want to join us for this ride, which kind of begins* on the 1st near Mount Vernon, WA, and goes east on Hiway 2 to Republic WA. We will be hosting a BBQ dinner there that night, and we have overnight accommodations for a few riders, plus tent space, nearby hotels and a state park with showers etc.. So far Gordon (BC Trout) and perhaps 1-2 of his pals have confirmed. Anyone else in? On the 2nd we can ride out in any of several directions, including east to some cool roads that Tex and I know, or south down to Grand Coolee, etc.

    Let me know if you want to join the fund so we can plan accordingly.

    Greg
    * I will be riding west on 2 from Republic the morning of the 1st to meet riders east of Mount Vernon, so if you are coming from the east side you are welcome to join me!

    I'll check the schedule and see how close we are on a couple planes going out for delivery. Goodguys is the weekend before so I might get f'ed by the mandatory overtime. If I can swing it, we'll be there. Do you mean Hwy 20? That is the hwy going east out of Mt Vernon/Burlington. Otherwise drop south to Hwy 2 out of Everett. Any recommendation on the hotels?

      Bret, thanks for pointing out my error, it is awesome Highway 20 through the North Cascades! Hope you can make it! The Northern Inn in Republic is old but charming. Happy to provide more details if you want to call me at 360-480-6501.

              Looking good so far for getting over to Republic on the 1st. Will have to take off the next morning and make our way south. Fingers crossed all turns out.

                Head count time!
                So far, we have me, Gordon, and Bret (likely) and maybe Jeff. Gordo, how many of your buddies might show up?
                Tex, are you there? Buheler?

                  I'm in for sure.
                  My friend Florian who lives less than 2hrs away may join us for a day ride. He's a tough well seasoned rider that's more often on his horse more than his Bandit these past 2 years. Florian's had more bikes than I can count including 2 of those old 1970s Kaw 900s. I'd imagine he's got 1/2 million miles in total. Anyways, he can bunk anywhere including outside on the ground - just keep the dog inside.

                              Started out this afternoon, & now ferrying over to the mainland. Overnighting with some friends in Vancouver, the Saturday heading east to base camp for a few days at Florian’s 10min east of Osoyoos. A week of freedom riding. ????
