    PSA/Nighthawk Border Crossing.

    As of Thurs/Friday the Loomis-Oroville road from the border crossing at Nighthawk to Oroville is oiled graville/chip seal. I don't know if this includes the road to Nighhawk, pass the lake and hooking up with 97 S of Oroville, but I suspect yes. The border guard left his station and walked out to the road to inform riders. It was rideable though. Don't know when the paving will be complete.
    Full Yoshi SS, Galfer wave rotors, Goodridge steel lines, Hel oil lines, Corbin GFL, Penske rear, RaceTech front, Hids, Givi hard bags with full lighting kit, Dyna Coils, K&N, Samco rad hoses, 9500ix/iQ, Pazzo, some bling, some CF.

    anyone I can lean against
    Be great to know if the entire Loomis-Oroville Road is chipsealed or not. That would be one heck of a ride from Tonasket to Nighthawk if that were the case.

    Usually, they lay down the bitumen on top of gravel, if they have chewed up the existing road bed and then lay gravel over top. They let it sit for a few weeks with people driving over it and then they sweep off the remaining loose gravel. If they have just laid down the bitumen, I would avoid it.

    Chip seal - even when cured - is not a highly enjoyable riding surface
    I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.
