How ya been Marc? You gonna make it down to the the Big Eddy on the 20th? I plan to camp down there for the weekend.
Doing good Rick. Going to ride to Priest Lake on Saturday and look for Idahos oldest geocache (or something like that..... that's the story I'm sticking with.)

Big Eddy on the 20th sounds good.

Have fun in B.C. and be safe. Kokanee brewery should be happy to see one of their supporters!

Awesome they are fun bikes. take it up to the Black Dog Cycle Works rally next weekend - I'll be doing my South America multimedia presentation.

SECTOR--yeah, I'm slow and I just put 2 and 2 together. I talked to you on your way back from riding that cool KTM over by Colville. I was playing in the road just before you two crossed the border.

There is a good write up about Jay on the front page of the Spokesman this morning. I didn't know you were a retired LEO.

Hey Tim,
If you could, can you see if there is a .pdf/online copy of the article? I'm out of town right now, so won't be able to get a copy. I'd like to read it.

I really wish I could get over there for it. I am in the early planning stages of a trip like that for my next big birthday and bet that would be a ton of info. Unfortunately, my penance for the 950 is a complete bathroom remodel
Oh well, their both worth it. (Wife and bike that is)

Scoutman, were you running 2 up on I-90 Westbound Sunday evening? I think I saw you as I was heading to Wolf Lodge for dinner.

Does anyone around here have experience riding Honda's NT700V? It's a V-twin sports touring bike. I'm trying to find something that I can ride with Nanc solely on asphalt. The Dakar is a blast, but isn't the most comfortable with two up. I don't want a big, heavy bike, rather something fun to do the curvies between here and Republic, etc., on.
