I think I would get more maintenance done if I kept my bikes in the house. Besides, it would sure beat working on them in the cold garage.

That Garage has been cold for a loooong time lately, it does make it very hard to think about working out in it. When I finally do get furniture, proper flooring, etc, in the house, I had better get some insulation, sheetrock and heat for the Garage soon after or nuthin'll get done.

Yes, I used to work on the bike's in the house... then I got married, no more working on the bikes in the house! So I built a garage!
Now no house or garage after the divorce! She did not get the bikes! Now where to work on them, is the question?

Apple Jam's house looks quite appealing!!!

Oh, hell no.
I was one of four who installed the Timber Peg "Kit".
I was the least experienced of the skilled crew,
.....so it might have taken even less than the 3 days to put the basic frame together if I wasn't helping





Well, that was five+ years ago, and it's still not done.
Fookin motorcycle sucks up all my money and time.
Maybe if I took up Meth or Heroin instead, I'd get the house done

Edit: When we bought our Timber Peg kit, it was CNC milled in a factory in Idanha Oregon, 3 miles South of Detroit, from Oregon Coast Lumber. All computerized. That factory closed a couple 2-3 years back

You already know the answer: None of them.

A better question to ask is how many Harley riders are welcome here:
SOME of them .....You already know which ones......

There IS plenty of excellent pavement and smooth & fast gravel/dirt all around camp for any ADVer to ride and have a blast (pending SNOW!)

Tom Watson, Watson Performance, Hood River

He did my XR650R, It has been perfect for years....
CRF450R made it into an enduro weapon
New to me: KTM200 XCW: talking with him this afternoon to order correct springs for my weight and I'll ride it for awhile then let him work his magic! He knows his stuff! He'll tell you if you just need springs, rebuild, or internal changes! Honest and knowledgeable
Every time he has built suspension for my bikes it has been perfect! I remove all the parts bring him the stuff and I install and set sag and go ride!
I try to adjust the clickers and end up right back at his recommendations and his starting points!
It might be easier to find someone in the Portland area but I'd rather drive out there and have it right the first time!

Just an FYI, I am bringing my custom over the fire cooking grill. It has a post that drives into the ground next to the fire then a collar slides down the post holding a full size Weber grill. (not the dome part, just the grill part) Fully adjustable up, down, left, and right. It is great for burgers, steak, and chicken. I have a matching skillet for pancakes, eggs, hash, bacon, and the like. If you are ok with a little ash in your flapjacks, this is the grill for you. It is also great for holding kettles or regular saucepans. I am a fan of eating well and am offering this to anyone who would like to use it. So if this helps your menu options feel free to consider it fair game at any mealtime.

Sounds good. I need to figure out what food I'm going to bring.

Last year

Was my first trip to Crooked River. One thing is for sure, lots of folks do a lot of good cooking. The adjustable grill will be VERY appreciated. Now let's hope the weather is as good as last year.
