Washington Mattawa Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Just checking to see if anyone is heading to Mattawa sunday ,2/14. Wondering what the conditions are like over there. I'm getting a little tired of Lake Tahuya and it was a wet one today. I could've ridden my jetski's out there.

Let me know if you're heading over or have info on conditions.

Hey Tony. I hooked up with Frank and we went out and tore it up today. Til Frank flatted his front. Franks a character........3 or 4 beers and a foot long sub sandwich in his backpack, too bad not enough room for an extra tude in there.......ha!

I'm thinking of heading back tomorrow with Brent ( otter ). What time are you looking at starting? We were riding by about 9:30 this morning.

I was there two weeks ago and the traction was IDEAL.

I'm bringing a group over from the wetside on Monday. We're not leaving super early so we should be pulling in at about 10ish.

We'll be staging at the S. Side.

Last time I rode with Frank at Mad River he was picking up forest mushrooms for dinner along the trail and stuffing those in his backpack. :ride:

I didn't even go today, ended up doing stuff around the house and fixed my wife's quad. :ride: Will give you a call since I missed your PM.

Hey Tony, ya too bad you couldn't make it. Brent and I got a little ridding in before his special KTM quick release rear brake pin, quick released while ridding and he lost a brake pad. We looked around for it a bit then limped back to the truck.

Anyways, we plan to head back there in the next couple weeks. It would be great to get in that 100 miles you are always talking about. I'll keep you posted on our schedule.

i have the glide plate that came on the bike. nothing to protect water pump ect. I actually looked for one recently and had a hard time locating one. maybe i will check with enduro engineering and see what they have. I need to get a shark fin or something like it.

It's on the west side, but i will be able to bring it over anytime between the 21 and the 25th. I have a jazz gig in spokane on the 20th and i am also doing the frostbite and the white knuckle on the 27th and 28th. Are you doing either of those events redrider?

Tony, is the expert on this subject. I remember when he told me he had ridden all his life without a skid plate. Wasn't that the same day that rock went though the case? :ride:

Tony now has the best skid plate made on his bike. I think it can take a suicide bomber blast and come away unscathed :thumbsup:

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
