North Cascades - Season Opener Ride

It was a cold and stormy night. Actually, it was none of that.. but I was up late the night before. Regardless, a 7:15 am departure was made, for points north and hopefully to still catch up with the main body of the group in Arlington.

Seattle to Arlington
Our small group of 4, Fritz, Pete, Chris and myself endourted the uber-alb of I-5 for what seemed like hours, evntually arriving in Arlington. Weather was not bad, a bit chilly. The rest of the group was going to meet us here, an hour earlier. Fortunatly for them they did not wait around for us.

After a quick break and purchasing some supplies we were OFF!
Arlington to Darrington

Once off I-5 the roads were a lot more interesting, not great but interesting. Heading east on SR-530 towards Darrington the payment previous night indescressions (it was Cinco de Mayo afterall) was finally over. Fritz was riding point a spirited by appropriate pace, getting us to Darrington in good time.

It would be another 70+ miles until the next services. We feuld up the bikes while making a quick trip to visit with the Wizard of Ooze.

Some of the trips highlights!

  • Darrington to North Cascades Highway
  • Meeting at Washington Pass
  • Ripping the road fantastic
  • Burgers in Winthrop
  • Wind dancing along the river
  • Blown on Blewit
  • Thick as a missed Brick

In the end... we rode 450 miles, home by 5:30pm. No tickets, no downs and despite man valiant attempts by deer to commite suicide-by-bike, none suceeded. Once again the KTM not only performed but performed in an excellent fashion! Two thumbs up.
