Where did you get the sheepskin and how do you like it?
My wife bought an entire sheepskin at a yard sale years ago, been making my own seat covers for my bikes ever since. I think they add a fair amount of comfort, warm when it's cool and versey vicey.
Well the sun is out. It's definitely time to hit the road,,, or trail,,, or whatever happens to be in front of you.
So I keep reading all these right reports out here. I guess I'll take a stab at this.
it seems like I keep getting my ride ideas by reading the rides that the guys in the hood keep doing. so, I headed up to gorge on the Washington side to Lyle. And then headed up north for some exploring.
Obviously, the views were great.......
and they've got these things growing all over up here :huh
These guys look like they were having fun.
.....and of course, lots and lots of twisties
.......well, maybe some curviez
So on towards evening its time to find some place to camp
well typical Northwest weather the clouds started coming in and getting darker and darker.
.....not to worry though. There was lots of clouds and lots of thunder ,,,,:dog,,,but no rain.
so morning came and it was beautiful out.
So it was off for more of this,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
At breakfast in Fossil this guy told me about a really fun twisty just a little bit south of town so I went and checked it out. It was a really great choice.
Finally made it down to the big metropolis of Mitchell, Orygun
Oh and I came across this rushing river crossing :eek1 :eek1 :eek1
well, the clouds and the thunder and the lightning started coming back in...............
...............so I decided to head back over towards Portland,,,the wet side,,,,,, where it was nice and sunny
all in all it was a great 625 miles. If you're interested, there's more pictures over at my smugmug. [/QUOTE]
Fun pics and great writeup. Nice paint job on the Strom.
Another way to make a sheepskin pad is to get one of those sheepskin wash mitts to wash cars with and cut it open
WOW......The last batch of pictures were great
I did not get to ride over the weekend but I did score some points by taking my wife to the tulip festival in Woodburn, OR.
Although not the quality of some of the photos I've seen in this thread, here are a few shots straight out of the camera...
This was in front of the McDonald's in Molalla, OR.
wet day at walker yesterday.. lots of fun
had to test my new windscreen
it works, and the tulips, well....
the surf is up this past weekend in central WA:
Is the park open for overnight camping? It would be a fun drive down in the hack; spend the night then tour the Palouse a bit the next day. Thanks for the pics.
Those two pictures that N-Id- Jim posted are awesome!

Thanks for the comments!
The palouse in general is awesome riding now, and yes there is some camping space at the PFSP, i would check the web site, and maybe avoid the weekend if possible there were a LOT of peeps there on Sunday. Our route went through Benge, Lancaster, St John, Rock lk area, Starbuck, Dusty, and hwy 27 from Rockford to Steptoe Butte.
Pardon my ignorance, where is this? Looks like some place I need to check out!
Google Palouse falls. It's definitely some place I wanna go find the summer.

^go there in late August or mid September when the temps are 105+
Pardon MY ignorance, but if you visit in July or August, where's the best place to go for a swim? Upstream or downstream?
ditched the bike for some planks today and did Mt Pilchuck.
my friend Jeff. Whitehorse, Three Fingers, Mt Liberty in background
We came down the "Gunsight," that face in the dark to the left from the lookout
