New to the forum, I ride a 2k2 B12S in Silver.  I live in Olympia and work in Redmond.  I would love to get together with some riders from the area for some rides. :motorsmile:

Stay tuned... sometimes the notices can be short. If you check the board often, folks looking for company can PM you.

I rarely know if my weekends are free until Wed or Thurs prior. IIRC, Tacoman was going to arrange a St. Helens ride after Labor Day when the traffic isn't so bad.

I've been wanting to make a run up the Mt. Baker Highway and throw in a few other area favorites, but it's looking like my weekends this moth are already planned between work, a wedding and a camping trip.

trip

I'm planning a trip or two, I really like late September and early October.  The weather is nice, most RVs are put away, no snow yet, moss off the roads, etc.  I'm like Paul, never sure what's up for the coming weekend  until about Wed.  Things seem to slow down some after Labor Day though.  The Baker Hwy is a ride I'd like to take.  I have a long lost cousin recently found who has a restaurant in Glacier, he'd be more than happy to have a group of Bandits roll in.

That's right... we've got Mt. Constitution and it's 80 turns in 4.7 miles!  :bigok:

Go to Anacortes and get on the ferry that goes to Orcas Island. When you get off the ferry, take the main road up to Eastsound and head east to Moran State Park. After you pass thru the park's entry arch, and the lake on your right, keep an eye out for a fork off to the left, that's the road up Mt. Connie.

It's best to go during the week, if you go on a weekend, be prepared to suffer going the speed limit (25) - or slower - behind all the tourists.

We went out to the Penninsula that day. The Mt. Connie pics are from when a group of guys from work got together and played hooky from work one day. I've been up there with Jeff & Gina (the couple you're talking about - that are divorced now) before, too... back in '04 when Jeff hosted a PNW Banditfest on San Juan & Orcas islands. I was just up there a couple of weeks ago with my wife on our anniversary, but with the car instead of the bike.
