Thought I would post some pic's of the Lovely water now that the Tubers and jet Ski's have gone back to school. Its the best time of the year. The water is still warm and high, and you pretty much have the lake to yourself.

Yeah not trying to Mislead anyone into thinking the whole lake is Butter all the time. But this time of the year you can find this water all over the lake. To bad we couldn't have had this type of conditions during spring ride would have been awesome.

There's no doubt. For us way up north there is zero traffic and we seems to get a lot of flat calm days.

Rehab moto, Awesome pic! We're spoiled here in Charlotte, NC, water temps still in the 70's! Toobers gone, just dealing with the bass boats, but they usually avoid us while we're riding...

1st one is the Pend Orielle River about 2 hours north of Spokane, WA. 2nd one is Long Lake about 5 miles from my house in NW Spokane. Love the NW but hate the short seasons.

Long Lake is where I first learned to ski when I was 5. I remember tubing on that lake when a fire broke out nearby and a large super scooper was making drops on the lake hundred yards from us while tubing was pretty cool.

September and so far October has been money. Only boat out on the lake most times.

Any water temp below 80, I'm breaking out the shorty suit, anything below 78 I'm full 4.3--- COLD natured. I think my husband is embarrassed for sure. I also have a minimum air temp of 78 for boating.

I don't think the water here has ever hit 80, lol! My cutoff for wearing a wetsuit top is about 65ish, anything below 55 or so is a 4/3 fullsuit.

I'll have to dig up some fall pics. I got the reminder this weekend of how fast conditions change in the fall. Saturday night was perfect. Entire lake was glass. Only other boat was a pontoon out for a slow cruise. Sunday, white caps. Every time the boat turned I got smashed by a wall of water. I'm not sure i've ever had worse conditions. Still felt good to be out though. It's a long time till april.

I was criticized earlier in this thread for posting Buttery shots of water that was in the “forbidden” 5-mph Zone. I apologize for my indiscression of submitting photos of water that you can’t or should not ride on! These shots are all of open water. Please forgive me!
