I, too, ride the Palouse alot. Steptoe Butte offers a relaxing waypoint while riding adjacent countryside. I'm on an 800 dual sport and the Palouse offers outstanding crossection of dirt/gravel/paved roads! It's the perfect playground for dual-sports. I just was up there this first week of Oct. 2010 and had the place to myself. Going up (sprialing to the left) was just a little bit unnerving with no guard rails along the paved road, but coming back down (spiraling to the right and on the inside track) was just as much fun. Recommend you ride on a sunny day to get the full effect of seeing the entire Palouse. Surrounding areas offer some "Summer Only" roads (for off roaders) that are excellent for seeing wildlife, hidden wheat landscapes and quiet canyons. All roads offer great sweeps and ups/downs with posted speed limits ranging from 45 to 55+. Can't go wrong in the Palouse!
