    Trail Closure Help in Kittitas County

    Yes, we are indeed growing at that rate. Growth is my biggest concern as well as economic development so we don’t become just a bedroom community to Puget Sound. On another note, I have talked with The Nature Conservancy about their land ownership here and how we can maintain access. The local director has said she is certainly willing to work with the off-road community to develop responsible access. If anyone is interested in developing potential new trails and wants to work on this, please email me. I would be interested in promoting different types of potential trails (think technical trials-type limited to small displacement with low dB exhaust) that could supplement our existing trail networks. I think it could show how our community can co-exist closer to urban areas

    Thanks Tom. I’m coming in late on some of this stuff. Where is the gate located?

    Trail Closure Help in Kittitas County

    Hope I didn’t alarm anybody with the title. As we go through life, sometimes we find ourselves in places we never would have expected. My path has taken me from a knucklehead hoon astride a CR500 running just slightly (more like way too) rich many years ago to longingly looking at a fleet of XR650R’s needing TLC as I run out the door to my day job. Recently, my day job changed to Kittitas County Commissioner. My name is Cory Wright and I now represent District 1 here in the center of Washington. As you can see to the left, I have spent a very long time on this forum. While my posts may wander from KLR’s to trials bikes, I have always been a firm advocate for public access and have spent significant time writing letters and comments to elected officials trying to make a difference. I now find myself in the position to do more and hopefully have greater influence in this process. I am asking all of you to keep me informed on potential road and trail closures you might hear of in Kittitas County. I seem to have less and less time to spend on here, so please contact me at my email address on the county website at https://www.co.kittitas.wa.us/boc/default.aspx if you become aware of issues which may affect riding or other access to public lands. I am willing to pick up the torch to not only help our riding community but also support our dealers, restaurants and other establishments that benefit from your business while enjoying our county lands. I believe in comprehensive solutions and am asking this community to be not only responsible representatives of our hobby but also active participants in the legislative process. Trying to get the specs to jet your TM40 properly is pointless when you have nowhere to ride it. Take the time to pay attention and make your voice heard. Thank you for your efforts in this area, and I look forward to working with all of you to keep Kittitas County the riding destination it is.

    Awesome!! PM on the way. Can't ride though - only have a trials bike and a CR500AF half-done.
  7. A buddy of mine has a KTM 85 that I would like to get for my son. He's located in Benicia on the NE end of San Fran bay. Valuable cash and/or prizes await if someone has truck or trailer space heading north and wouldn't mind hauling it. I live in Central WA but can pick up in Western WA or Eastern OR. Thanks if anyone has a lead for this.

    Awesome!!! Thanks to each one of you! There's more than just this for fundraising. We are also doing an auction, a mud run, collecting cans... all kinds of stuff. I'm still waiting to find out how many tickets were printed but I'll let you know when I find out. As far as used ones in stock - there's really nothing. People either pass these on or sell them on their own. I have a 12" one now that has gone through two kids and I'm waiting to see if the third one will get the bug or not. She may be too much of a princess but I'm trying to break that. Thanks again to everyone!
