Shit Ed, what the hell are they doing putting easter sunday in march for? I just realized this, and that won't work for such a devout family man such as myself . Guess I am going to have to ditch them the weekend before for a little solo exploration. What a bummer

That kinda looks like the road into Leslie Gulch. Do I win the "Name where Steve fell down in the snow" prize?

Okay I'll change the dates on my previous post.

That was my only guess, I can't think of any other place that looks like that.

It is a four letter word-ROCK!
Go get it dirty. Can you license it or is it a haul and ride scoot?
Your priorities are in the right place. I wish I had time for more than one bike. I struggle to ride mine as much as I do. Working hard to enjoy the beemer though.

OH Good Lord! Me crawling up on the fence and you go and bring this home.... I couldn't stay with you before . BTW nice looking Red Rooster you have there.

OK, I read up on the ride it was back when I was still on the island. So, snow, mud, rock, appears to be all of your favorite indigents... I'm still sittin on the fence for now.

It's the same model (CRF450X) I've had since 2005. This one is just 7 years newer. (2012 new leftover). I will probably plate it just like I did the other one.

I'll be on the DR650 for the Crystal Crane ride Sam.

[QUOTE=trailrider383;20884112]I'm going to go ahead and choose March 29-30.. I'll be busy the other weekend. Hope for nice weather.

Meet in Nyssa, OR at 9:00 a.m. Friday and head to Juntura for lunch via dirt. On to Crystal Crane Hot Springs via more dirt to camp and soak. Probably eat dinner at the cafe in Crane. Breakfast at the cafe Saturday and head back home over another dirt route. This is a dirt ride. I like dirt. You need to have around 135 miles of fuel range. QUOTE]

Date Change Alert!!! And fuel range update.
