    Yikes. Looks like a new windshield and headlight is in your near future - Always nice to have a clear ones again. Hope some other FF is paying your deductable.

    Keep us apriased.

    FWIW - One way or the other, I'm still going on this ride.

    I'm pretty damn sure thats not gonna happen......He has already seen what you did to your own bike.....:lol3

    Man up!! you still have a perfectly fine FoHunny. Strap your shit on it and head out. Adjust the route to include more gravel and dirt to get to the same places. You might have even more fun than the big bike...:deal

    V-Duck, that looks like it was a close shave! Hope you can pull it together before the departure date. I've taken the time off so I'll be going regardless.

    As far as the Sumpter Dredge it's a cool place but I can take it or leave it since I've been there a couple of times in recent years with the SFRC boys out of Portland on their Gold Rush ride.

    My plan is to ride down to Springfield in the morning like I did last year.

    That would be a VERY different sort of ride. Yep, could be fun, but not exactly what we had in mind. I'll keep it in mind as Plan B.

    The bike goes in to the shop today so the damage can be assessed. More to come...

    V-Duck Sorry to hear about your incident, hope the shop had good news for you today.
    I'm going to skip slabing it down to Springfield and just plan on hooking up with you guys in Prineville. It's less then two hours from my place to Prineville so I can sleep in. What is your best guess for a time you will be rolling through there?

    If all goes according to plan, we'll hit Prineville between 12:30 and 1:00. The Chevron station in the middle of town is a good meetup location.

    Got the bike into the shop yesterday afternoon. Haven't heard a time estimate yet...

    However, I'm working on a Plan B involving fewer miles, way more dirt and gravel. Something more oriented to a dual sport bike. I do not relish hours of highway riding on my DRZ...

    Some weirdos think riding around the state on sub-500cc bikes is a lot of fun. To me, that's more of something to endure rather than enjoy... :D

    More as I know it, stay tuned.

    I have no problem with a lot more dirt and a smaller bike if it goes that way. I don't mind riding the dirt bike all day as long as it's mostly on dirt.
    My 640 is pure hell on the blacktop after a very short time.
    I'm having a hard time giving up on not going to see the Leslie Gulch area, it's been on my list for a while now.

    I can go either way. Got a little WR250R that could be set-up for a dirtier ride. 200+ mile days aren't nearly as fun as the BMW though, nor as "Spiritied" a pace on pavement. Prefer the Plan A route though as there were some of those Eastern area's I've not seen before, but willing to see what route you come up with still.

    Either way I WILL be riding a motorcycle SOMEWHERE east on these dates and CAMPING.
