Talking Final Night

Meanwhile, I still seem to be at the MOA Rally
It's the final night so a few of us head over to the stadium



Ian, Clayton and Lori amongst them.

Inside it's pretty packed out




They start going through winners and awards and then suddenly this picture appears on the giant screen



My group give me a standing ovation as it turned out I'd won the furthest travelled international rider.
And then we headed to the beer tent...

As for the tyres, doing well so far, but bloody hell they're noisy[/QUOTE]

Nope, not related to the Borden’s, but you are right about the Borden Base. It's located about an hour north of Toronto and I'm from Borden Saskatchewan located about 3 hours north of the Montana/Saskatchewan border.

The odometer read and Thelma's actual mileage are two very different things. Thelma and I have managed to break two cables and trash two speedo clocks (one of them due to the wolves in Labrador). The current clock says about 8,500 miles in reality Thelma has done 193,000 miles
And she's looking pretty good on it.

Always good to hear from riders in Australia, I know that Lisa and Simon Thomas are down your way giving talks, they're been on the road about nine years now and they're well worth going to see, and they've been to almost as many places as I have

Laugh Final Night at the Rally

The final night at the MOA Rally was upon us, some people had already left- so there were some sad farewells, we'd been riding and camping together for over a week by this point. Although we weren't so upset that we didn't forget to relieve them of them unused beer tokens. Some of the guys kept them handy as we headed down to the biergarten



The biergarten was buzzing as usual, I see I've got a comment from one of the organisers above. Our final evening together, Dawn and I were wearing Jeanae's great t-shirts (Ride Like a Girl), so the three of us decided to get on Thelma for a couple of photos.




A suggestion was made to try a Charlie's Angels pose



What we didn't realise is that from the side, it looked very different, with legs flying everywhere.

Glad to see you are having as much fun as usual, on your travels!

I must say the Charlies angles pose is adorable and I will have to share it with Tamantha. Her Triumph is getting new electronics this weekend, so she can ride again.

I have secured another slightly used spare tire for Thelma, should your next trip through Central Oregon include a stop at my house for flat repair... This time it is a TKC80 so plenty of knobs for that trip down Fandango canyon!

Tam and 5-0 say hi, too!

Good to hear from you Justin, I'm not always too sure who is who through their usernames on here. It's nice to know that in deepest Oregon you have got Thelma's future tyre needs in mind!
And yes, I'm determined to come back and conquer some more of the canyons, there is some gret riding in your part of the world.

Laugh The Morning After the Night Before...

It's early morning and the view from my tent looked like this




Standing in the foreground is the lovely Andre, who had ridden down from Canada solo for the first time, her husband hadn't been able to get the time off work and so she came on her own. To my good fortune, she set up tent next to me and proceeded to supply me with my early morning cup of tea in bed. All I needed to do was wave at her through the window/air vent on my tent and she would bring a cup over.

It had been a bit of a raucous night, and the evidence was obvious as I looked around



One GS Giant hadn't made it back to his tent....

I was busy, packing my stuff and trying to get it all to fit back into my panniers as well as the stuff I had been given such as my plaque for furthest travelled International Rider. The blue tarp attached to the fence was my attempt at getting soime shade for my camp spot- my Dad would be proud of me, as I checked my compass bearings when I arrived at the camp and chose this spot with the fence to the east so that I could create some shade; by 7.00am each morning it was already hot. I've got to confess, my camp site never looks like the most organised spot in the field and today was no different.



One more bike to take a photo of as it was picked up
