Is it Desert or Dessert? All the same in Oregon!
Some old friends and some new friends descended on Central Oregon for a three day off road moto adventure. Here we are the night before where strangers become friends, swap stories and anticipate three days of adventure and disconnection from the “real” world.
Left to right: That’s Stacie and Billy, owners of Oregon Dual Sport Rentals (if you need to rent a dual sport motorcycle in Central Oregon, they are the ones to call), Erik and Todd from Salem (been riding with these guys for years) and James all the way from Brooklyn most recently, New Zealand originally and everywhere else in between!
James on left and that is Eric on the right. Eric made the trek here from Seattle area with five other of his buddies.
Around the table here’s James, Dale and Dave. Part of the Puget Sound connection, these guys all knew each other either as kids, through work or some other long time connection.
On the left is Bad Cowboy Dave then Don who will be driving the chase truck and Eric the ringleader and whom I quickly identified as “Jim Carrey” by his looks and mannerisms. Funny guy. Don and Jim go way back to college days when Eric was a bartender and Don was his boss.
Up next, Day 1 – Prineville to Diamond Lake, Oregon.
