You are the man Mr Bessey!!

I think it would be fun to get a ride put together. Are people interested in a dualsport ride or pavement for our 1st one?

Give me some ideas?

Walla round

Keeping all options open - dirt/street ride.
Perhaps we could get that meeting with everyone together first - just to say hello and kick the tires so-to-speak?
I'm open for what ever..........

Great idea for a thread.

I like the idea of a get together some day to talk about some ride options.

I'm new to dual sport riding and just getting to know my bike, so I'm going to take it easy at first.

Can we come?

Is this limited to just WW riders?

We have off road, and dualsport bikes. We also own Wees and can do all pavement or less technical (slow) on our wees (example: Kendall skyline or pikes peak rds).

From my point of view, this is a great way for anyone in the area who rides a dual sport to get to know others and get together for riding.

I'm with you on the less technical for the time being. Just getting to know my new bike at the moment.

i like your bike setup, ive got a 07CR250 smoker set up for trails, an 06 FE650 with a 2moto kit on it and an 02 GG280. sounds like we should get together and ride sometime. i just did the elkhorn crest on the trails bike and it was pretty fun. (ive been down there on my 250 but my other buddy was riding his trial so i figured we mights as well both ride em). i like the idea of getting some wally world guys together to ride, im always looking for people to ride with. we did a wed night ride last year and met up a johnsons motorsports (im part owner) we should get a weekly or bi-weekly thing going and set up a meeting place.

Teamchaos you need to drag your dad in on this one. I've gone the last 3 years and really enjoy it. Only about 3 hours away in some of the most gorgeous riding around planet earth.
L'bug we'll try and get more pics. I've gotten lazy in my later years and just forget half the time. Wish you could make it. rj

for what it's worth. From the Rally site.

"Walk-up registration will be available at the rally site beginning July 28th at 9 am for $129 per person. No day passes will be sold."

I remember last year this was a problem as some people showed up for just one day and wanted in w/o paying the full $$$$ cause they would only be there one day. Got caught and kicked out. Hard feelings exchanged. I don't blame people for not wanting to pay full tilt for just a day or two and I don't blame the organizer cause he said it wasn't fair to the others that paid full price and wanted to be there for the whole time to let others in for less. Dammed if they do and dammed if they don't situation. So I suggest if any of you can only come for a day or two and you don't want to pay for the full price that we exchange cell # before and we can meet you outside somewhere. Nothing wrong with that. They do check everyone coming in for armbands all weekend.
Not wanting to discourage anyone from coming but just thought I'd give a heads up so there were no surprises.
I believe there is a camp site on the Oregon side and motels available if you aren't camping.
Heres my cell just in case 1-509-301-0287

Thanks RJ for the heads up.

I'll give you a call if I leave on Friday. I'll also be at the Mill Creek Brewpub at 6:00 on Thursday for those who can make it.
