Spokane and Coeur d’Alene are not really 'round the Hood, but what the hell--Susi got a new bike--a 2011 BMW G650GS (that's the single), with only 300 miles on it. We van'ed out to Spokane to meet seller from Missoula, Montana. Did the deal in a Walmart parking lot, then went for a ride over into Idaho and around Lake Coeur d’Alene.

That reminds me of the introverted nerdly kid that visited the confessional:

He says "Father, You wouldn't believe what happened to me last night, I met this totally hot woman and we had sex for 3 hours, and then we woke up and did it again,....twice!!"

Father says "Um..... That's very nice, son, but why are you telling me all this?"
Nerdly kid says "Father, did you hear me? I got LAID!!,... I'M TELLING EVERYONE!!!!!!"

Congrats Susi!
Now even Susi has an "adventure" bike. How out of place do ya feel now, matloik?

You betcha! Got 700+ photo's and dozens of video's to figure out what to do with. Will start a ride report in the next day or soon. We rode the UTBDR down and made our own route through Colorado and much of Wyoming on the way back up. After two weeks camping in a tent, my bed sure felt great! Great trip, doubled the milage on the little WR250R and best of all, no injuries - Although JungleMan's bike will need some replacement "parts".

The current thought is that at some point the Versys will have to go, and be replaced by something that can handle some off-pavement riding. Not sure what a replacement will be ... a 990 (which the nerdy kid will vote for, I'm sure), a F800GS or a 800XC. This is all forward-looking for when Susi and I push the eject button to get off the treadmill ... maybe next year ...

Susi and I rode up to the South Climb trailhead of Mt Adams and went for a stroll uphill.

Oh yeah, and we plan to ride on Sunday, as posted on the 'PDX Off Pavement Ride' thread. Meet at Bennett Pass snowpark (at bottom of Mt Hood Meadows access road) at 10:30 am. We are trailering our little bikes there.

Swellegent!! It sure is nice to get back to a compfy bed, although, i lived in my tent for 6 months 23 years ago (hitching the USA) & could'nt get used to a bed again...just a sheepskin on the floor was good.

Glad that your trip was a success.
