    Side Note: Taking the 650 to the Rat Dog this weekend. Hoping for no rock walls and naps. Fingers crossed. Anyone else going?

    Right on MotoFlicka! Rat Dog sounds like fun. Don't forget to pick up a roll-chart holder and take some pictures.

    I think those of us that live fairly close together should just throw together some ladies weekends here and there throughout the year. I just wish I had more weekends left this summer to be able to do it.

    I'm for that...but, I'm getting pretty booked, too, for the weekends. My husband and I just did part of the ladies first days ride, except we started at the beginning of Neal Creek Rd. I only missed one turn and rode part of the power line road. Any way, I thought about all of the ladies...I could feel you guys cheering me on!:clap The stitches are out and it's looking pretty good!

    A few more photos of the ladies ride. On day one, Susi's group wound up waiting for my group for about and hour and a half at the designated meeting point. Just figured out why. I took my group on a "detour" on some nice roads around Pine Mont (17) so the ride would be a little more interesting. It added about an hour to the ride. Sorry group 1, but we had a great time riding the way we did.

    Along Barlow Road. Wish I would have taken some shots at the "dangerous descent," but I was too concerned with all the mishaps that had taken place.

    A stop at Trillium Lake on our way home.

    On the way back to the Hood, Scarlet, NatDesertCat, CrashClay and I traveled the dirty way along Lolo Pass. These bridges just beg to have their photo taken.

    Saw you "Dogging it" at the Blimp Hanger. Thought I recognized you from somewhere. Monkeywife and I were getting on my GSA to head south and you took my picture..Small world

    Ah, what a small world! "Dogging it" = too true. I realize now the other bike (and another year of riding) would have been MUCH better for that day. I was glad to be on the pavement at the point you saw me.

    You and your wife were a great inspiration for the day though -- hope i find a adventure partner like that one day! :thumbup
