I'd def like to check it out later this year. I hear it's gorgeous.
Thanks for the link. :)
Even if you can't make it for the rally, the Gorge and the roads nearby are terrific riding anyway.

I almost had a heart attack when they cleaned it after coming back from up north.
I wasn't quite ready to part with the grit..

I keep the chain clean and service it regularly and ride the piss out of it…..

I half-ass washed mine Sunday, was getting my hands all black checking tire pressure.
If you weren't certain it going to rain this week, me washing my pig will make sure it does.

We had so much rain a few weeks ago.
The ground is still saturated in some places.
What I love about this picture is what I actually saw when I got home.
The little green sprigs.

And of course……...

More new green….

The other side….

The hack...

On the way back to the bike….

Cool

I have no idea how this post got so long...but it's sweet. I mean I was just a toddler when the first thread hit...., well ok, maybe I was like 36 but...Wow - simply amazing and I bet even Mark Zuckerberg would like to know how you have acquired so many contacts..

Peach - if you took this thread off the asphalt you'd probably have a cloud of dust following you all the way from San Francisco to Baja. Heck - you could "Save Carnegie" with one appearance.

You go..., and please think about getting a Triumph XC800 to explore the dirt roads. You'll never look back.
