    This thread is for the riders from the Pacific Northwest.
    Wiki defines that regions as" an area that includes part of the west coast of United States and Canada, including southeast Alaska, all of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana and northern California and Nevada."

    Feel free to make suggestions otherwise.

    I'll start with myself....Name's Matt, I am in Colfax, WA.
    I ride mostly in the Snake river, and the Columbia river (some).
    I gots 2 Superjets.:Banane01:
    Here's a couple pics from my regular riding spot. It sucks.
    Most often, I'll be below the damn, right by that marina.
    On Weekends, I usually go above the dam, as it's much warmer water.

    Not really a NW Rider any more but here are the places I miss riding...

    1. Vantage, WA... Closed for camping now, but was a party place to ride.
    2. Lake Sammamish... Was 15 minutes away from my house.
    3. Lake Washington... Coulon Park PWC course near Boeing plant.
    4. Snake River... Brings back WSU JS550SX memories.
    5. Hood River... Fresh water waves and fun night life.
    6. Lake Tapps... Official sign summer was coming.
    7. Lake Chelan... Official sign summer was here.
    8. Willamette River... Portland is a fun city.
    9. Lake Coeur d'Alene... Golf and skiing!
    10. Richland, WA... Raced a couple of times. Met a lot of cool NW riders.

    Honorable Mention:
    *** Westport, WA... It was cold but fun.
    *** Moses Lake... Sand dunes and skis.

    I miss the NW summers, but love the AZ winters.

    Matt - Living in Colfax? Is it still the speed trap capital of E. WA? I had a local cop pull me over for 3 mph over in downtown. He let me off with a stern warning. :rolleyes:

    Matt sorry that I missed your call tonight. I REALLY wanted to go out and flop around in the water while :hail: you ripped it up :notworthy: but I had to help Sam and Christy dig a trench for their water main:biggthumpup: boy was that fun. Anyway I'm headed out of town tomorrow night so I hope that you guys have a great time on Labor Day. When I get back we'll have to go out and tear it up.
    :woot:

    Both me & Phill are riding this weekend in the Tri-Cities, on the Columbia.
    Most likely Columbia Park.

    On another note, the Scootney race is this weekend on the Scootney reservoir (DUH!).
