Thanks to Ladybug for putting this ride together!
We left Bend on last Thursday and took our sweet time meandering through central Oregon making the way out east. Hiding out in the woods on gravel roads and speeding down some open highways too! Puffy clouds made for some pretty pictures that afternoon.

We thought the BMW was toast as it shut down outside of Post and wouldn't start up. Justin just took it apart and found a striped wire that was shorting out electrical system. He wrapped up the wire with my medical tape and we jumped it off my bike! Hoping that we wouldn't have to peform this procedure everytime we stopped back on the road and away we went.

Above was the meadow we camped at the first night we arrived with full bellies. The super nice lady at the Bear Valley Store in Seneca hooked us up with some chow so we mostly drank our dinner! Had a nice fire and the evening was beautiful with mild temps.
Rain started falling on us as we packed up the next morning. At the time little did I know that my boots were to be soaking wet for the next 3 days. We covered a lot of ground close to 300 miles that second day the wet wether had robbed us of some of the scenery, but at least there was no dust. Freezing cold and hungry we blasted out of the forest and sped toward camp past the rainbow and in to the sunset. Thank you Jeff and Shelly the fajitas were hot and delicious!
Woke up with sun on Saturday and did the ride up to Hat Point then down to Dug Bar. That was a surprisingly fun road! Met up with a few of the Hood River folks and the rattler down there. It was actually hot enough to take a dip in the water too! Justin picked up nail that really chewed up his back tire on the out he hobbled back to Enterprise with a plug and can of Fix a Flat.
With both of us having to work Monday we had to take off. Had to make another stop in La Grande to work on the rear tire again this time he put a tube inside of the tube less tire, that did the trick!


We slabed it home on the rural highways. I think we saw more deer in those 4 days than we normally see all summer look out for those critters. Oh yeah and watch out for OrangeYZ's cougar too! Good to see everybody!

So many people to meet, so many roads to ride, I just can't do it all.
So,....I guess I just have to keep coming back every year just to try and catch up !!
You listening, LB? Auto-IN me

Hi LittleWan

Thanks for popping in. Can you believe Larryboy and Larryboywife rode all the way up to attend this little shindig? I was sure thrilled to see them again, it's been a few years.

There should be about a half a dozen people in that group shot that you know.

Maybe next year you and BigWan will consider showing up. There's lots of exploring to be done in the area and the two of you are the right people for the job.

Last year asvivor autoed himself IN now you want to be auto-IN too? OK fine.

You're right there so many people to meet and roads to ride. I think it will many years to do it all so we'll all have to continue to return but it sure is a great place to return to.

Everyone keep those pictures coming. I'm guessing many of you are like me and haven't gotten to your pictures yet and we'll have a lot more coming. I know I have a bunch that I will be sharing with you.

Anybody have any photo proof that there were bikes without knobbies that left the pavement ? If I make it next year , should I stick knobs on my WeeStrom and trailer it down ? From the looks of some of those muddy roads I think I would have been in trouble with my Anakee 2s .

Each year things are a little different, normally dust is more of a concern than mud. There are a few dirt routes, like Hat Point and the Imnaha River Road, that can easily be done with street tires but a little bit of knob would be better and open up more options. When I get to posting my pictures I should have a few photos of bikes without knobs on dirt coming up out of Troy.

If you zoom in on this one (click to see the large version) you'll see Jim is running an 80/20 tire with no problems... I think they're Shinko 705s.

Drone had a BMW with side car and road tires. He followed us everywhere.
Of coarse he is a little crazy. It is a good thing Kirby keeps him in line.

Ran Anakee III's into Dug Bar without any issues, but that's more of a rocky road, not much mud...
