It brings a tear to my eye knowing that this is the last article summing up this summers’ adventures on Tour. It’s been another great Northwest summer, with lots of time spent on the road and in dozens of lakes and rivers across the region. This being “Part II” of our story across Big Sky country, you probably guessed that there was a “Part I.” For those of you who haven’t read that riveting article, I will begin this tantalizing tale where I last left off: Great Falls, Montana.

Northwest Riders 2007 Summer Clinic Tour - Montana “Part I”

It seems as though another summer has flown by as fast as they always do. I know that we still have another month or so left of good weather and riding, but for all of us on the Northwest Riders Summer Tour, the end of August marks the end of our days on the road. What better place to end a few months on the road than a drive thru “the Treasure State.” That’s right, I’m talking about the “Land of Shining Mountains:” Montana! In fact, the story of our trip is bigger than the Montana sky, meaning I’ve got to chop our tasty tale in two (conveniently named Part I and Part II).

The filming of “DRIVE” in the Northwest started out yesterday morning with Randall Harris, Jeff McKee, and Ben Greenwood taking a set on Lake Washington. We started on the North end of the Lake, made our way to Maydenbauer Bay, and finished up with Benny G running the gut along the south end of the I-90 bridge. If you were driving along I-90 at all on Monday morning you were treated to some world class riding during your commute.

We are now onward to Eastern Washington to film for a few days. Stay tuned for further coverage of DRIVE.

Check out a quick recap of the morning set and a few teaser photos after the jump.

The Northwest Riders Summer Clinic Tour recently made their Lake Sammamish stop. The spots were filled both days, the weather gorgeous, and riders amp’d to learn new tricks with Pro Rider Brent Starr, Sean Kilgus of BFY Productions, and Greg Young. We also fit in a video/photo shoot with Spencer Norris of WIT Productions and WakeboardNorthwest Photographer Bryan Myss. Both Bret V and Thomas Olson took a set.
