Looks like it might be awhile before we can rip over to Winthrop.

bummer:crying: I have read on the WADOT web site that they have had to spend some days working there way up. Only to spend the rest of the day working back down the hill after slides buried the road behind them.

bummer. This is the road I wrecked on. I plan to run it again this summer....:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

take a look at the updates, looks like it will open next week. Road conditions may not be ideal.

I ran 20 up to Ross Lake about 3 weeks ago and the road is absolutely fine up to that point.

Man I really need to get unlazy and put the street clothing on the 1098 soon!

I have to do this ride!!!

I went to Skagit Power Sports Open house today and saw the EMT who was 2 bikes behind me when I crashed. He told me he has been on 20 a couple times this year, the first, he saw the corner where I crashed, he said he fixated on it.....yikes, he did what I didn't, tossed the bike to the left.....my corner is just South of the overlook/viewpoint of Ross Lake.....I'll meet up with you guys at the Stanwood exit.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
