Maybe pass you on the road. I'll be heading to Spokane to do some shopping tomorrow thru the Nelway border crossing.

What a lovely new thread you have Buttercup.
I think I can go Sunday. Sullivan Lake, Metaline Falls and Boundary Dam make a nice ride on a hot day. The last time I did it a Grizzly Bear ran across the road in front of me.

Will go with general concensus... I'm free either day as my horseback riding fell through...

1 - Sunday Lamotovita

what works for you Jer?

Kootenay kid you are a Saturday?

9:00 A.M. at the CONOCO on HWY 2 and Deer Park Milan.

We can take backroads to Newport and then the LeClerc Road (Eastside) of river to Metaline Falls?... Lamotovita -- you've likely ridden more this area than I -- you have a better more interesting route? Just remember the 250 barely makes 60mph!

I'm open to suggestions....

well that depends on if we leave Chattaroy earlier I guess, not sure how long it will take... I defer to Lamoto (1 hour?)

you'll see the sense in this as the clouds form in the coming months,,

YFF's! go ride!
I got a busted wing strut, and you are all spozed to fill in for me when you can,,git out there!

Oh gosh,, I rode my bike all weekend, and the grass didn't git mowed,,

get a grip!
poison the lawn, and ride every weekend!
And,,you better have fun!,,and not the make bleev, walmart brand substitute fun, the real deal where you have to go out and get it yourself!


I'll rely on your tasteful posting of pics and ride stories that I missed, go ahead and rub it in,, I'll pass and roost y'all when my wing heals!
peace and dirt!

Have a fun ride, Buttercup!

I just got back from 5 days with my brothers, nephews and son in and around Glacier NP. Did a lot of Driving (no riding ) and hiking.

also picked up a DVD called Dual Sport Riding Techniques. Will be practicing somewhere where none of you can watch me dump the bike .

Maybe next time??
