Sunday Suggestion

If anyone is looking for an excuse to get out and ride Sunday, head to Dallesport WA and watch these crazy folks with no seats on their motorcycles attack rocks with reckless abandon.

No Scott, my GasGas is torn apart with a broken fork clamp, and I haven't done an event in years. But, dang they are fun to watch! I am thinking about riding over in the rain from Salem on Sunday. Are you heading over? Is Squishy?

Sunday ride over to watch the trials event.

Meet in Troutdale main st at ???am, ride 84 to Cascade Locks, over to Wa 14 & head east to the event.

Who's "IN" ?

In! Squishy shamed me into it. He seemed a little "off" at the Hood River Rally. Choosing to ride in a monsoon confirms it. Still, he did start the official "Organization of Mike" so I have to support his lunacy. Name the time for Troutdale and I will meet you there. Thanks for the nudge Squishy!

Confirmed!!

8am along the Troutdale main drag...just look for the dirty bikes.

(That's the old main St through the arch...not the gas station cluster f..k right off 84).

If we don't see a good breakfast spot there, we will head out to Cascade Locks & have brekky there.

The weather will hold until Monday, good enough for us brave souls...this time of year.

I'm in! I need to be back in town early afternoon, so I may ride back solo.

Thanks,

Ride Safe!
