    This year's the24th annual Oyster Run in Anacortes on September 25th.

    Anyone wanna group up and ride to Anacortes on Dual sport bikes? Mabe crack a few Banditos skulls while we're at it? Collect helmet sitckers and watch the rocket scientist types do burn-outs in the streets?

    If you've never had the pleasure of boarding a WSF boat that's 90% bikes, it's a trip.

    Anyone interested in riding together up there? :ear

    VME north club is at the train station. rode my T100C triumph last yr, asshole WSP pulled me over twice in 200yrds. no BS, my head light was flickering, shit anything coming out in the way of light is a good day. punk kids (WSP MC patrol) I have boots older then the troopers that pulled me over.

    i told them about lucas being the prince of darkness, they didnt get it. seems since they go the new jack boots to match the BMW, they got attitude also......

    hot tip, know the back way out of town, to avoid the crowds,

    The oyster run is definitely an Adventure!
    Lots of local color, too. I don't see how it can be missed. Maybe there should be an Adventure course, on the old Snelson-Anvil property, complete with tree roots, rocks and mud holes. It would be an adventure watching the Oyster attendees (especially the big hawgs) navigate such a course, especially as the day wears on and spirits get higher. Seriously though, it could be fun....and a cruise around Guemes Island is a scenic possibility, although all pavement.

    Note to Gentry:
    Oysters are rumored to cause disruptions in family size and structure.
    Some caution may need to be exercised. But should you find yourself needing a suburban for a family vehicle, it comes with a jim-dandy towing package. Just right for hauling a fleet of DS bikes into the hills.

    I attended the last two years... only found a half dozen Dual Sports in attendance. Lots (1000's) of H-D cruisers all nice and shiny. Most of the riders are 401K raiders trying to live the H-D lifestyle for a few hours. I suggest that we/you all show up after some real dirty trail riding to show them what real adventure riding is about! Adventure Riding T-shirts are a must!

    Here's the deal with the Oyster Run. 30,000 v-twin open piped riding slack-jaws hunker into town, spend 5$ for a burnt bloody oyster, and 5$ for a cup of bud lite, with their riding partners big fat-ass cheeks being split by the sissy bar and the bitch pad. 5 mile line-ups in and out, Washington State Patrol and Skagit County Partol Revenue Generation watching for something as slight as your fly being unzipped.
    Great time, been there many times! Go there simply to see what life is like on the other side of the barbed wire! I'll be there on my Norton, seems an old Brit is have respected by the bunch that shows up there.
