Photos from my abbreviated tour

Ready to roll.



A quick meet up at the Safeway and we were on the road, but before we hit Oakridge it was all over for me. The guys gave roadside repairs their best shot but it seems like it must be the fuel pump and we didn't have a replacement.



Peterman sorry I didn't get a pic of you but thanks again for the rescue and sorry I didn't give you a call later. I certainly would have enjoyed seeing your place and having somewhere more interesting to hang out when it became clear the bike was not going to be fixed and I sorted out transportation back to Portland.



Will be great to see the pics and hear how the rest of the ride went the guys get back.

Dang, I'm sorry Big Orange let you down.

Maybe she was complaining about that load you strapped on her......"Do I look like an ass to you?"
Don't let it get you down; make up for it with a big trip of your own, somewhere, nowhere....

Danggit!

Those poor lost souls are out there, somewhere in that godforsaken desert, down to their last beer, and I can't go out and play. Evidently some peeps think it's more important for me to work tomorrow morning than camp out tonight.

Sorry I missed out guys.

You must be referring to the unfortunate "CannonBall/Unlawful Penetration" accident at Hart Mtn!
