We went by both, but didn't stop. the day started out in a downpour, but as we wandered from canyon to canyon the mtn weather revealed it's true personality. The Taneum side was pretty wet, the Naches side was off and on.

How did it do?

Needs a bigger tank. I was the stooge borrowing gas to make it the final 1/2 mile to camp. :ride:

Ran great the last 3 times I've ridden it, but today at Walker Valley it fouled a plug while following the gf. Pulled the plug and it looked fine. Kaptenken hooked me up with a new one and it ran good all day. Go figure. She's a runner. It's not as powerful as the 450, but it's fun. :thumbsup:

Awesome. Getting my CR ready slowly but surely. You got a stock tank now? Any troubles with the I-90 construction?

Agreed...had a "moment" coming down off Clifty...hit the brakes, and it didn't even begin to slow me down...finally reached the point of no return and bailed for safety. I kept the bike on the trail at least. Joe showed up as I was remounting, took one look at the scene, got off his bike and walked it. Not sure what that part of the trail is made of, but it was crazy slick.
