I have been on a bear find the last week, apparently...

Last Thursday, John's Mill rd. (becomes Ketcham rd towards The Dalles):
The two little cubs were in the road ahead of me, and they scurried off.
They stopped only about 50 feet away, and stood up on hind legs,...



Can't see them? Let me mod that pic for you, look just above the horizontal log....




First thought was..."cool"
Second thought was, "where's momma?"

There she is, about 100 feet behind me...



Yesterday, I saw another good looking, very black, very furry one, closer to Detroit.
But he/she was up the hill & gone before I got my finger on the button.


I.
LOVE.
Nature.

Someone is riding around the good alright. In the XR250 they stole from me!! Be on the look out for a camo (if they removed camo it's got a red tank, white fenders ). Stolen from tucker and Portland dr. Has a WA plate with no blinkers, tiny homemade mirrors and black fork socks with metal disc cover.

I really like what your are trying to do. I'm just not sure about how you are trying to do it. It's been a pressure working with you and the pleasure was all yours. If you need me I'll call ya..

BASTARDS! Here's hoping karma sends them a flesh eating bacteria infection on their junk.

Damn! Sorry to hear that. I rode past there this afternoon and didn't see them and thought great you already sold them. Fucking low life scums.

You sure it's stolen? maybe Jeff had enough of that KTM and just had to have another ride around the orchard!

Hope it comes home soonest.

What is worse than being between a rock, and a hard place?

Glad it worked out.

Lemme tellya, my thumb was on that button,
but I also didn't wanna miss that experience.

Momma wasn't too excited, so I watched her until she disappeared in the brush, then I suddenly felt like the outsider, hit that button...
... and left them to THEIR forest.

Very cool young man! I stopped to watch some cubs run across the road up in Canada, then wondered where mum was & decided to move on.

You have all the fun!!

Glad that your trip was a success.

Fingers crossed

Hoping everyone will keep an eye out for an XR250 that was stolen from me. This was a hit that Marti and I really cant afford. Should you see anything like this bike please contact me anytime for a vin number to compare. If the green has been removed the bike will be red and white. There are a couple of things that I dont want to list here that will give it away immediately as well.

Thanks

A few of met at Bennett Pass for a day of hot and dusty. We didn't end up riding Bennett Pass as we took a wrong turn ... and then decided to ride toward Clear Lake, catching some trails I had tracked from Black Dog earlier in the summer.
