This break was filled with the purchase and moving into the new house! Which is good, but sucked up all my time and money. When I get back let do a mini meet up and all come over and hang out and have a beer or three.

So, you're saying that having a place to live is more important than hanging out with us? I'm crushed.



If anybody cares, I just called Yamhill Shell. They are open, and have premium.

Sunday's Ride in Pictures

The Place: Misty Coastal Mountains near Nestucca OHV.


Squishy and Mortimer sizing up the mountains.


Nice turn out for a November day. It was actually pretty warm and we only managed a light sprinkle a few times. Much drier than last weekends.


Getting the salute from Dan.


Squishy showing off his bike skills. You wouldn't believe how fast he was going when he did this.


Gary likes to keep his pipe clean.


Little Bikes and Big Bikes. They both have their plusses and minuses. Gotta have serious skills to ride that big bike on these slick roads, and Mortimer pulled it off in style. Good show of balance Ken.


Mistly mountains - Not as Slick as it looks, but it had its moments.


Its not an ADV ride if somebody doesn't have to fix something.


They days are getting shorter, so we make the most of the one we got!


Squishy rating the ride.


Thanks guys, was a lot of fun. Hope you all made it home safe.

Great ride!!

Thanks to the guys that organised todays ride, Gary called in at 7am, picked me up, then headed west to the 9am rendezvous in Yamhill for a great brekky!



Headed west with: Al, Ken, Gary, Dan, Scott & Mark. having a break after riding countless logging roads


Encountered a few obstacles.


Had a late lunch at Nestucca?


clockwise from left: Mark, Al, Gary, Scott, Ken on the right, & Dan. After lunch we headed back up into the hills for some more excellent logging roads...(i mean the best that i've done in a long time)!, endless miles of them, keeping in a pretty tight pack...loved it


Headed our own ways home once it got dark, had some more highway obstacles: A bed box spring (in the middle of the road), cars without their lights on, & unlit vehicle break down triangles out in the road...hectic!!

Once home, wondered if i should just leave the bike out in the rain for a few days, or put it away...will blast it tomorrow...& all my riding gear.


Great ride!!

Cheers!!

What did you guys do to Ken? Everyone else is smiling, looking like they are having a good time, but Ken looks like he's taking a nap.

He's having a great time, just protecting my burger from being snatched! Momentary distraction.

Ken was our leader through the high knarly roads after lunch, & having the biggest heaviest bike in the bunch...did not hang around...even when the porcupine was doing a John Bulluchi between the bikes

Sherry, I was just pouting, because they were mean, and made me get my garage queen all muddy.

Hey Barb, check it out.

You guys were mean to MortimerSickle? Don't be picking on him. That's my job. Next thing you know you'll be wanting him to sleep in a tent.

I like the looks of that bike with all that mud on it. I'm surprised you didn't find an ice covered puddle for it to get cleaned up in.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

We seemed to be electron challenged. Dan690 lost his stop/tail, and Squishy's headlight was playing tricks.
