    Until I saw this pic.[​IMG]

    and read that some of the terrain is rough and rocky. My wee has street tires and stock suspension. Just covering the bases, there's still a lot of riding scheduled for after this ride. :wink:

    Oh yeah, Hiya pickle :wave

    This is the part of the road that makes me sick to my stomach. I have to stop, breathe in, breathe out and move on. I'm no fan of narrow, rocky Roads with a drop off.

    I still remember the commercials.........Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!

    i've seen pictures of where you go on your Wee. I'd say if it was wide enough to get through it would be Weeable for you...:lol3

    Hey Lisa,

    I think there's room. There haven't been many replies from folks on who's still on the IN list. I would love to met you since Craig and I didn't make it to Idaho this June.

    It may not look like it, but I am taking care of the new "INS" and trying trip keep up with PMs. My computer is not usable right now, so trying to update things on my dumb phone. Great timing! Haven't been able to finalize the t shirt thing as I found out that they deleted the font I was using, so I have to revise.

    Sorry ladies, I will not be able to supply any route info. just keep in mind, its an adventure. :D

    Actually sightseeing is OK, just be sure to stop and put down the kickstand first. :D

    Have to order the shirts tomorrow. I PMd my email address to those of you who expressed interest. If you didn't get a PM and you want a shirt
    please message me ASAP. You don't have to have a paypal account in order to send a payment. Please choose the "friends and family" option.

    But wait! There is hope upon the horizon!

    Almost three more whole weeks until this ride? New job training has me putting in many more hours than I'm used to. Really looking forward to the Ladies Ride! I'll be on my DRZ 400 not only because I Love the Dizzer but its also the only motorcycle I have!

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Got a few new farkels for it this season and they're being installed this week. Scott's Steering Stabilizer and new ProTaper bars :norton plus oil change and a bunch of bearing grease. It's gonna feel like a a brand new bike! :raabia

    Oooooooo new toys - how fun is that? :D I was looking for a stabalizer for my DR200 but haven't had luck with that. If I were taller a DRZ would sure have my interest but since I'm not I'll just be envious.


    My plans for this gathering have changed, then changed again and might be on track now. One thing for sure is I'm looking forward to seeing all my old (AARP old? :lol3) friends and meeting some new ones.

    I think a least a couple of you met Lee at Hells Canyon and she has decided to join us for this adventure. Rainbow007, Lee and I will be riding down from the Spokane area via the scenic route. Lee rides a TW200, I'll bring the Superbug:pynd and Becky doesn't know which bike she is bring yet. It will either be her DR650 or her XT250. I might have to pressure her to bring the 250 so we can have an itty bitty girlie ride. Besides I'm leading and don't know where the heck I'm going. :lol3 The 250 will be easier to turn around when I find a dead end.

    We won't be able to meet at Shelly's house Thurs. and will try to meet up with everyone Fri. night but we don't know how we will do at making time from here to there. If we don't show up Fri. night we WILL show up Sat. night.

    If you do not receive a PM regarding locations, addresses, etc., please let me know. I just can't seem to keep everything straight, so I may have missed someone along the way.

    I too have been watching :eyes this thread for a while, I am pretty shy and not so sure about riding away from my comfort riding shell and bike picker-upper (i.e. Husband) but all you ladies sound so wonderful and supportive plus I love beautiful scenery and taking pictures. I have lots of worries and 2 weeks to make sure I get all the gear together, and figure out what to eat on the trail for 2+ days :spam? but by giving it the adventure title maybe will help me deal with what comes my way. Right?
    Can I be on the IN list. Diving in both feet here, I'm not a maybe I'm an IN! :clap

    Have all the general info about food and whatnot. If you wear a unisex size medium or large, I will probably have an extra shirt. I sent the order in this afternoon, so I can't order another specific size.

    Other than that, welcome! I will PM the locations, addresses, etc. to you.
