To all who either frequently or infrequently ride the Cascades or Baker Hwys:
You lowermainlanders must realize that these are two of the last remaining mntn/twisty hwy routes we have left to 'play' on within a reasonable proximity, and when I read Frosty's post about "flying around the mini-track" up on Baker, I plead you all realize, that the Baker Hwy and upper mntn road is a national park area, and if a whole slew of sportbike riders are up there zooming around that little 'loop' at the top more than once; or are passing Ma 'n Pa Kettle sight-seeing around in their camper or Subaru wagon, like maniacs juiced up on a dozen bottles of Red Bull ... then that whole area will rapidly become shut down to any future use as a sportriding resource (fabulous as it is).
So, I ask you all ... to kindly remain considerate of other drivers, road and park users as you are out there having fun on your 180 h/p track-based sportbike machines ... for these roads are NOT race-tracks, and should not be considered as such.
Be wise, have fun, but remember that there is always a time and a place. So far, most general public pples are somewhat lenient and understanding of other's needs and idiosyncracies; however, abuse those leniences too often, and they shall be lost.
Cheers - have fun - a be respectful/careful ...
