I received the OBDR maps!

I know mrmagoolin is the king of gps.
I hope to have a suitable one and be ok with it too.
Yes mrmagoo it would be excellent to see you along.

These maps are killer but too nice to carry along, thus way points are listed through out the ride.

I know my buddy Paul waits for me on rides as far as speed goes.
Speed will not be a problem.
I would like to smell the roses, check the views and take pics.
Between wrestling the Scrambler around. And really it hates all that luggage...
Hmmm...

It's on MortimerSickle's "Dream Rides" list on his profile.......
So, are you coming.???....????....???

Work is FUN...as long as you don't HAVE TO do it

PS: No Visa cards allowed, except at gas stops.
And even some of those might have "forgot to pay the phone bill"

From someone's profile......
"Dream ride
Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route"

I think you should break the habit of a lifetime and join us Ken. I'm sure we could muster up enough kit between us so that you didn't have to sleep out around the fire (or bunk up with John).

If you don't come we are all gonna dangle pickles from the back of our bikes for the whole journey. I read somewhere that is sure to tempt you to follow (and I don't even know what the whole pickle thing is all about....except I'm guessing you must really like them).

An XR600 would do it.

That's not what we were hoping for

Hey, where's Liv2rydktms and her foot tapping when we NEED her?





Besides, Mort, us young bucks need a chaperone out there by us-selves.......


I'd always wondered about that. Very appropriate.
Nice song, or RAP, as we know it today...

I'm not telling which Koplin Jr. is carrying the captain. I'll have you trying to buy gas off me all the time in hopes of me giving the wrong gas pack. Hee Hee

I have not been able to figure out the dates you are thinking about yet. I think it is the last week of July 25-29th?
