Sound Rider Dual Sport Ride 4-23-2006

  Fall City to Spada Lake by way of Stossel Creek and Sultan   

The full size pics are 600 x 800 and some are nearly 200 Kb so a speedy connection is a plus.
I'm also experimenting with Lightbox 2.02, as you will see (hopefully) if you click on a few of the thumbnails.

Click the toggletoggle to return to the Motorcycle-Folder home page.

Just click on a thumbnail and a new window will open with a larger picture.

Please wait until the status bar at the bottom of your screen indicates that all the thumbnails have loaded.

The turnout was amazing...over 50 riders with Dual Sports of every size and description began a great day of riding by meeting for breakfast at the Raging River Cafe in Fall City, WA. Our fearless leader Tom Mehren distributes maps and main street comes alive !!
The pavement was left behind at Stossel Road. With the great turnout, it's not eay to get a pic of everyone. I hope you can find one of yourself or a friend.
A short break beside Youngs Road gives everyone a chance stretch and sample the sunshine.
Our route intersected Hwy. 2 at Sultan, where we regrouped, giving time for those who did not pack a lunch to find a snack at the Subway, Hoot Owl Mini Market or the, always popular, Sultan Bakery.
Too many great bikes with cool mods to photograph at one setting. It looks like the local Chevron is offering premium for $3.089/gallon. What is it today?
The Sultan Basin Road is packed with great curves, but eventually it turns into the NFD 6100 Road and we find gravel. We follow Olney Creek between Blue Mountain (el. 3080 ft.) and Mount Stickney (el. 5367 ft.) until we find a an ideal spot for a picnic lunch.
The scenery just gets better and better as we ride over Olney Pass and get to Spada Lake.
Tom Mehren had Sound Rider order up the perfect Dual Sport day. Looking up Williamson Creek we have Kaisoots Mountain (el. 5481 ft.) on the left and Little Cheif Peak (el. 5416 ft.) on the right and in the distance.

The Pacific Northwest does not always have days of this caliber. Without exception, everyone got maximum enjoyment from this one. Tom Mehren and Sound Rider deserve a big round of applause !!!

So, here's looking forward to.....the next time we ride together.
