Dualsport 650 set up a long day in the saddle. 10 hours and 200 long miles. The plan was to ride across the Millican Plateau, and east to Prineville. From Prineville then to head North to find the Green Mountain Trail. http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/centraloregon/recreation/cohvops/hl-images/greenmt.pdf Meeting up at the Arco on South Third at 9am... Pat from Bend, Brad 21, Dualsport650, Direwolf, Stihlrigg, Thumper605, Brauhausbier, and Stihlrigg's buddy Kirk from Cordova Alaska on the Husky. As soon as Kirk pulled in to the Arco on the Husky, the radiator started dripping. That was it for the Husky...Stihlrigg's repair on his loaner had not held. Right away we lost Kirk and Stihlrigg... The previous evening at Dualsport650's house, Pat had told bad luck his last ride with two flats right at the start of his last ride. Within just a couple of miles of hitting dirt, Pat's first flat. After getting his tire back together, his rear flatted again in less than a mile and he called it a day. Now, we have lost three riders, and it's cold out. A nice hill climb on the Millican At the top of this hill climb , I found a weathered 12 pack of my companies brew.. Today was Direwolf's first dirt ride ever, and he rode his new ride, a 2002 KTM 640. He made a great attempt at this hillclimb, and bounced off a section of rocks on the steep, and rolled off his KTM and down the hill as I was just behind him on the climb. I wish I had a helmet cam. Minus his tank bag, Direwolf and the 640 are okay.
