What time would you suggest for those that may want to come from that direction?

We live in Steilacoom WA. That is north of the Mt. Seems logical for us to start from that position.

However, my FJR is for sale and should it sell, I will not be going on the ride.

Hi all,

I have changed the date for the Volcano Ride (Pacific NW gathering at Mt. St. Helens) to June 10, 2006. The prior date conflicted with another 2 day event I was planning on attending, but didn't have the date before. :oops:

Hope this isn't a problem, and thanks, 8)

Ride

Ken

My guess is I will have to pass on this ride. My FJR is for sale and I hope to replace it by June. Also, I should be in Montana for most of that month.

Have a good ride.

We are at about a month away so why don't we start getting a head count. Maybe we need to do something special or something?

Please only answer once and I will keep track by your user name. Maybe with a list, some of you can plan on a ride together to Windy Ridge.

I will do my best to attend, if child watching issues are taken care of. I am new to the FJR world, after swapping out my 99 concours two weeks ago. Well, 2 weeks and 600 miles later, am quite pleased. The only mods are some bar risers, and an ugly but functional top box. I live in Tac, so, maybe I can meet up with those from the area, and hook up with the rest of the riders, en route. Also, would anyone be offended if a friend of mine showed up on a harley?? (don't worry, he's got stock pipes).

Just another reminder of the 2nd Annual Volcano Ride around Mt. St. Helens. Click on the first picture to get some details and the other pictures of what you will be missing if you don't plan on this ride. One of the best riding areas in the State of Washington, don't miss it.

Just post that you will be coming and I will add you to the list above. Make up your own riding group if you want to do it with someone else in your area.

Ride Change:

FR 25 and FR 99 Not Open: Here is the Forest Service's excuse: Congress hasn't given them any money to plow the road and clean out the culverts. Expect complete melt off in July sometime.

Or Road will be open when Mother Nature decides to clear the road of snow.

This information is from real people at the Vancouver and Monument offices. According to the recorded messages the road to Troutlake is also not open. FR23

It's Saturday and the weather is suppose to be great. 74 here in Portland. I will be riding up to Cougar then to the end of the road on FR 25, then on to McClellan Point where I will have lunch that I picked up on the way. I should be there around 11am-12pm to meet up with any of you that decides to come. When I leave I will go to Carson by way of Curly Creek, Meadow Creek and Wind River Rd. (FR-30) This road has a section 5.4 miles long that is equal to just about any road in the Pacific NW for twisty curvy roads. In fact, I may just go down there to kill time until 11:00am. If anyone is up to it, may take a ride on to Troutlake and Glenwood then back to Portland.

Cayuse Pass is closed due to a rock slide and both White and Chinook Passes are open.

If you are coming from the North or South, turn left at Woodland.
Some of us from Portland will be meeting at Rosie's Restaurant on the left at the shopping plaza, for breakfast at 7:30. It's about 70 miles to the Viewpoint and takes around 1 ½-2 hours, so we will be leaving around 8:30am. That leaves us some time to check out the gate at FR25.

If you are coming from the East, turn right at Carson.

Woodland-Cougar (30m), Cougar to end of road on FR25 (approx. 25m), from there to McClellan Viewpoint (14m), to Twisty section on FR30 (4m), Viewpoint to Carson (28). Total section is only 95 miles long, but can be done in reverse making it 190 and a very good ride for the day. Hwy 14 isn't too bad either.
