I may be up for this... cuppala questions: Is this Shell station right in Mattawa or out by the highway? Will I need to be street legal? I ask because I've always ridden the trail bike at Mattawa and it isn't very legal. It is, however, the correct weapon for that terrain!

Shell station is on the other side of Mattawa (last building in town on the left?)...It takes about 10sec to drive through lol.

I'm 90% sure you only need tags.

Inspector is right, should be the last place on the left in 'downtown' Mattawa. Address is 723 Government Rd. From I-90, head south on Hwy 243, take a left on RD 24 SW, and head up the hill. This goes through town, and the Shell station is just on the left. The jump off point for the ride is just a little further down the road on the left. It is called R SW. Head up that hill, and there is a parking area where we can unload and gear up. I have included a link to Google maps of the Shell station location. (I still don't know how to post a picture from Google Maps)

that weekend sounds real tempting. just that mattawa has a lot of sand right? the 230 dont have enough power to stay a float on top of the sand it just sinks lol. i got a house i can stay at right on moses lake so that would be an easy drive over from mosses.

It is sandy but should be packed down with recent rains. There are sand dunes down the north side of the mt. but I've never gone down there. What I do remember is lots of rocks. I think the 230 might do OK if it has good knobbie tires.

well in that case. i am 90% in. u all heading that way that morning or is there going to be a few camping or hoteling it? if u all want we could stage in moses lake friday night and drive over to mattawa in the am if u dont want to wake up early early sat morning for the long drive.

anyhow if big jer is going i should go. i have not seen him in a long time and he was a hoot to ride with.

Ok, not new-new, as I actually rode mattawa many years ago in the 70's, Jeeped, and Quaded since, but just got a wr250r last weekend.

Love the Mattawa area, but is this an advanced enough ride maybe I should get some more stick time first?

Otherwise I'd love to go.

Bwahaha...dude, i suck at dirt riding. You'll do fine on the roads/trails. Through the valleys the faster riders can just take off and wait or do the run twice.

ya inspector is telling the truth, he really does suck at dirt riding

jeffpack1957, this is a pretty layed back ride, no pressure,alot of different terrain, so you can do what ever your comfortable with, just have fun. one last hoorah for the end of the year.[ it is spitting snow here right now] so you'd better come along, it will be a blast

I guess it sort of depends on pass conditions, as I dont have chains for the truck.

But I'd much rather ride pool over there, then drive by myself.

I get lonely!
Sleep

Anyone from the west side going?

so who all is a go on the west side?

Ah, missed this one, lets sync up next week, but I dont plan on leaving until early saturday, unless you were planning to overnight somewhere, which is cool too. If that, then I'll drive the truck and trailer to work, as I work in Redmond.
