In November 2011, MCR-member "ruffjeepster" submitted the following information about this motorcycle road:

In Enterprise you are surrounded by the stunning snow covered rocky peaks of the Wallow National Forest, with the Eagle cap wilderness just beyond. Route meanders through high mountain farm land. As you approach the Washington, Oregon, Idaho boarder you have views in deep river gorges green with grasses and teaming with wild life especially mountain goats. The tight curves start as you wind down into the rocky Grande Ronde river valley. Once you climb back out or the valley your back into rolling pature lands. At the end the route winds back down into the Snaker river area.

The road quality along the entire route is very good, not many potholes or road snake. The best part of the ride is the desenct and assent of the Grand Ronde River valley, dozens upon dozens of tight curves hugging very steep walls of the valley. Stay on your toes here because there is usualy gravel/fallen rocks on the inside corners closest to the cliff walls. Know your lean angle limits because you will push them to the limits. The rest of the route has nice sweeping curves with little traffic.

Get gas before you leave Enterprise or Asotin none along the entire route. There is a in the middle of the route at the bottom of the Grande Ronde river valley to stop for cold drinks. Boggans Oasis.

There are very large elevation changes between Enterprise and Asotin be prepared for drastic temperature changes. Even if its 80 and sunny in Asotin take a coat because the pass near Enterprise could be 50 degrees.
