    I see Fisherman, and think Fishman (ex-drummer from Phish). I'll get it right eventually.

    Shawn,

    I've just finished cleaning up the lab. I'm out of here. I'll get my gear on and head over to the Row. I'll get there a bit before 6pm. I'll be out on the back deck. Sweet, it's not raining!!:clap

    I'm at work, sounds like fun though.
    Maybe next time.

    Possible ride Saturday?
    rallydrz and I did some scouting a week or so ago up Gifford Pinchot, hit snow in a few places. I rode up to Jones Creek ORV a few days ago, didn't do any major mud, just fireroads and then popped out in Hockinson.

    Matt,

    Sorry you had to work late. What a great sunny evening! I have some pics that I'll post up. I have to work this Saturday and I have my Sister in Law visiting too. We have a road ride I'm planning with Direwolf for the 28th. I'll get a post up next week and let you know the plan.

    Good grub, Walking Man (Homo Erectus IPA) brew, and lots of KTM talk (you know how those ninefiddy riders can be :evil ).......

    Until next time! :thumb

    What a great Thursday of sunny and dry weather. Slightly warm too!

    Arrived at Produce Row Cafe Just before 6pm.

    We grabbed a table on the deck in the back of Pro Row.

    Crazybrit and Mr. Fisherman plus our second pitcher of Homo Erectus IPA from Walkingman Brewing in Stevenson Washington www.walkingmanbrewing.com. Excellent brew @ 9% alcohol-- a big hoppy Northwest IPA!

    Work sucks, but I'm off today because of 11.5 hour day yesterday. So, life is getting better by the minute. Sadly, there was time to come by, but I was toast. I really need a good diet and more vigorous exercise, but greasy food and laziness have bested this gelatinous cube troll.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    I've been there twice, but I don't know where it is.

    What is a GPS, anyway?

    Caught a thread you posted on (640 vs. BMW G series) about some suspention work you did on your 02 640A. I found a few decent sounding shops, but want to chat w/ you and find out what you did and why - and what the outcome was. I'd love to check your bike out and compare as I struggle to evaluate what and how I want to move forward. PM me, or we can use this thread - could be another Meet-up excuse (we can go to a vegetarian place if you want next time. Is salad and beer OK? :evil

    I'll be up for late next week. Thursday @ Pro Row? The big tables in the back deck are the best when the weather is dry. Sorry you missed out this Thursday...tasty beers!

    Hey, thanks for welcoming me to PDX, to that IPA (top notch--beat the Millwood and McMinimans sp?), and one another. Only wish the bike were with me. Pro Row is a good spot. You guys come ride the Palouse some time.

    Hey, Crazybrit, thought I better say goodbye in proper fashion: :fyyff

    :rofl Your face was priceless when I rolled up in the van and "waved" hello.

    RTC,

    Great to meet you this past Thursday. Lucky your class hit some good weather too for the Landscape tours last Friday.

    Keep in touch and let us know when you are back in Portland.

    McMenamins beer is not my personal favorite either...:nah
