I'm too nice....I should have taken pictures of you all sprawled out with your foot in the fire. Instead I pulled your foot out before any major damage could occur.

A proper ADVer shoulda said.....hold my beer while I get my camera

We knew Friday was gonna be a niiiiice day. It started out sunny, and warmed up quite fast. This is on FS17 (Pinemont Drive)



Further along this day we run into peterman, OMB, Mr. DualSport and little posum out in the boonies near Camp Friend, and we all crossed Jordan Creek going into Tygh Valley together. Here is four of them crossing, the others beat me across the creek:

The top two are a couple knockoff Chinese made LEDs. I mounted them up high on the handlebars. They put out allota light, but the mounts are crap. Ask OMB why he switched his out that same morning...

I really like the TrailTech headlight,, the high beam puts out a good bright glow, but the high beam sits too low... It's partially blocked by the fender bag.

Still imagining the perfect light setup...

Finally downloaded some photos.

Most angles have obviously been covered, but here are a few from my camera & phone.

Friday morning.


Awesome views!


AJ venturing off trail to avoid some fallen trees.


Will.


Saturday brecky.


Cute ah...even with OMB in there.








Chokozip & i went for a little work out up at Binn's Hill OHV area...even with a BMW 650!!


Back in Parkdale, main street, Scott PDX at the Apple Valley BBQ...Great spot, check it out...great food, friendly staff & quick service.


Across the street at the Solera Brewery. Self, Chokozip & Scott PDX.


Out the back in the beer garden, admiring the Mt Hood view.


Back at camp. The BBQ goods arrived in style...of course!! Thanks Carla.


Something to distract the crowd from OMB's legs.




1 of the days a few of us did the 70 mile loop from Parkdale over to Mosier for an Umpqua ice-cream, then around through Hood River & back, just in time for the last of the BBQ'ed pig. Great ride, here is Scott ripping along.


Thanks again AJ & Mustang Shelly for an awesome weekend!

Right there is the reason I can't get away with anything. You caught me swinging in public with a cute girl. Not only did you post a picture but you also got Monkeywife in the shot......
