Just picked up 2005 tw, been riding since 1962.I live in western Washington, would like to ride with a group not by myself. I also have 3 yamaha 175 enduros, DT 250, at125. So this is like riding a Cadillac. Thanks for having me.
Congratulations & welcome!

You’ve come to the right place - surely, the WA folks will chime in here @ some point.

More than a few out there.

Welcome to this forum. We’re a friendly, helpful bunch. Hope to ride with you sometime. There are many in WA, so I think you’ll find your group.

Welcome. Since you're willing to travel some if you can free up some time there are usually some great folks and rides you may enjoy with fellow members. Typically there are some scenic and somewhat challenging group rides in Idaho and Utah in the warmer months. I'll travel to those but also ride a lot in the Sierras and Nevada usually solo but not adverse to sharing with others.
Proposing a more local ride yourself is also a great way to meet other riders.

I'm in western WA just south of Ft Lewis(JBLM).
I mostly ride in capital forest and on base (when areas arn't closed for training and hunting).
I'm retired and have a flexible schedule and can travel.

Welcome! Washington has it's own thread for planning rides and such. Reach out at: Washington State Tdubers
I tried get on there sight but kept getting rejected. Not that great at this computer stuff. I kept getting it wrong. This sight was Easier.I’m also retired, a insulator in shop 57 PSNS for 38yrs. Hope to ride with others when weather gets better. I just plunk along enjoying the ride excitement and scenery I’m thinking maybe Ellensburg area after the snow goes away.

Welcome to the forum!

What kind of riding do you like to do?

I am out on the trails several times a week all year long. I ride the TW on a variety of terrain from logging roads, to single track to snow. As far as riding areas we are spoiled for choice, though I usually stick to those that are quieter and less traveled. If you are interested in meeting up feel free to reach out. I am based in Allyn WA.

Congratulations on your retirement.

Ellensburg has some good riding. right in your backyard, up above hood canal, there are a ton of forest roads that are fun to poke around on as well. We should set up a May ride.
