Isn't that the best kind? Now if you can only get Jason on his new 500 to join in... get to work.

I just realized that July 20th is in the middle of the BMW National Rally being hosted in Salem, OR. Is this an issue for anyone? I certainly don't want to have people miss out when we can easily rearrange this ride to another date.

(Scheduling stuff is such a pain in the ass.)

I've been contemplating joining for a while now and am excited to join everyone this year! Also glad to hear "The challenge is a little more "big bike" friendly this year and takes in historical sites in Idaho, Utah, Montana and Oregon..." as I sold the KLR and have the Capo now. She's kinda chunky, shhh...

Be ready to have some fun!... the folks who have visited all of the challenge sites in years past have averaged around 4500 miles to get them all in... usually about 1/2 to 2/3rds of those miles on dirt. probably a littles less than 1/2 on dirt this year, but in some really great areas... We'll see you out there!

I had to leave to come back out to ND for work about two days after the Challenge got posted. I was tempted to go down to Happy trails and wrestle a bandana away from Ed and hit a few sites before I left. Can't wait to get back and start knocking them out. Got to get some miles on this Tiger, and it seems like this is a perfect year for a bike that size.

Poker Run

Thanks, Sam, for putting together another good Poker Run last weekend.









Clint & I enjoyed running sweep most of the day, taking in the wildflowers and enjoying the sunshine.









Burt let me roll on his Strom for the day.

Hunter's second ride: Hemingway Butte

Dang, sorry I missed the Poker Run. Boy Hunter and I rode Hemingway yesterday. I haven't been there since before he was born. It's a good place to dink around and hone some skills. I'm wishing now we hadn't got the auto-clutch for him. Nonetheless, we both caught a little air.
