5:30. Check!

Actually, I had tickets for tonights game, and cancelled. I'd rather go to Widmers than see the Blazers. I am a much bigger beer fan than a basketball fan - especially considering it was going to be my 1st live NBA game ever. The Harlem Globetrotters aren't in the NBA, right?

Of course if you are looking at him from this prospective I think you have had a bit too much.

His floor, however, does look clean enough to pass out on
How about we light up your kitchen floor with a camera flash at 6M pixels!

Jeeesshhhh.....

No worries dude, that was kind of a complement...
There is already a sleeping pad and everything... of course the chair looks about comfortable enough to sleep in...

Sleep on? Clean enough to eat off of, IMO. I am used to two large shedding dogs, a shedding cat, and a wife.

The wife doesn't shed so much, but rides a horse, which adds to the hairballs. Drop a slice of buttered bread, and you pick up something that looks close to a squirrel's tail.

Is it 5:00 yet?

Good plan, wrong night. You can have my beer.

Just don't have too many if you are going to drive/ride home....

Hey guys, don't mean to hijack your thread, but......when you meet tonight do you want to kick around the idea of planning another one? If I might be so bold as to suggest Wednesday April 18th.

I'll be on my way down to Rawhyde Adventures and will get off the ferry in Pt. Angeles about noon on the 18th, it'd take me about 4 hours from there to Portland for an overnight stop. So, if you're up for another meeting by then it would be great to meet some of the guys I read about here, it'll help me judge what I read is true and what isn't!!!!!

If it's a strong possible go then maybe you could give me an idea of motels that are in close proximity to the place (ie; crawling distance)

Thanks I'll check back later.

Had a great time guys, nice to meet everyone, we did a lot of talking about going for a ride, but made no plans, I will be going riding this weekend outside of Estacada in SW corner of the Mt Hood National Forest, prolly Sunday.

Hey that sounds like a good excuse for the next get together, if you want to be close to a Motel then maybe around the Rose Quarter??????? or we could meet at the same place (which is very cool BTW), and arrange a DD for ya.
We have a few weeks to plan for it, we'll figure something out.
Keep in touch Shewbert.

You should have stopped anyway. One guy (don't worry Al, I won''t say who) even showed up towing his bike on a trailer.

Good turnout guys. Got to meet some new faces, and to see some familiar ones. I'll try to remember them all this time (sorry, Jerry.)

Good food and good beer, too.

That's a great idea, would really help on the flat-spotting of adventure bike tires! What an awesome setup he's got there! That trailer would looks like it would stop a roadside bomb in its tracks!

Thanks everyone for showing up @ Widmer yesterday. Thanks for the great Pic's Ken! I fogot my camera and was sure hoping someone would bring one.

I'm done with work a bit early today and now get to pick up my KTM 950 from it's first service at Boss Offroad.

Tomorrow is a long awaited appt with Mr. EdsMoto (www.mredsmoto.com) in Albany for that sweet custom seat Don is going to make for our KTM950.

Too bad we ran out of time for me to give a tour. Maybe one of these weekends we can all meet up a bit earlier in the afternoon so I can show people our fantastic brewery!
