At a Glance

Man, how times have changed. Back in the seventies, it seemed every guy wearing a motorcycle jacket was dancing to the sounds of the Village People and trying to prove himself a Macho Man. With the arrival of the new millenium, however, any self-respecting Yakimite has given up the YMCA for the AMA and prefers his designer leathers with armor and scuffed knee pucks. Fact is, once you discover the two DHs and several TEs leading to and from this little suburb of Yakima, itís hard not to be a Naches Man. And while this eastern gateway to Mt Rainier National Park doesnít have as many tight, muscle-flexing twisties as DH7 Packwood - Naches, itís still a great place to cruise for gorgeous Pavement and Scenery. A different breed of village people have built roadside houses, farms and RV sites, as well as the services to provide for them at the Yakima end. And the beefy Engineering frequently dominates the beautiful, riverside asphalt, making many of the curves feel a little more submissive than youíd like. But itís sure fun to go to the twisty, scenic Chinook Pass, or the winding sections west of Cliffdale. Young man, are you up for a ride?
