    Welcome back John - You know that sun's bad for you after all! Can't make tomorrow without incurring DDC (Dire Domestic Consequences). Free Friday, Sat and Sunday to play though.

    WB - Throw out a Road Ride on friday, my GS is getting dusty sitting in the garage!

    You seem to know the Coast Range better than I Al. You have a place you wanna explore on Saturday? The last few rides have shown me lots of new area's in that Nestucca area that are cool and as you know... I'm a big fan of Breakfast. Nestucca, Wilson, Nehalam I'm cool with any off it, long as I'm hanging with the ADV family!

    I can't ride that early on Thursday, so I will cook up a Friday street ride and post it up as soon as I figure something out.

    I would recommend knobbys since we don't need a repeat of the last incident. I would expect gravel, 2 track, and mud. A good time all around.

    Will this be a ride out and back via dual sport, or can a person portage the bike to where you are going to meet? My 620 needs a rectifier so I could ride the 200. Thanks

    This is a dual sport ride, you need a plate.

    Feel free to bring your heavy bike, it will be all roads, some will be worse than others but they are all roads. I would suggest that you have tires that you are comfortable riding in the slippery stuff on.

    Saw the weather report last night, with a blue bird forecast, I was able to sneak away for a few hours to meet up with Asrviror and S1marks for a little, fast forest riding. Was such a nice day, I wish we could have run longer...pure fun!

    First offroad with the new pipe. Result...:D

    It may not be Hawaii, but I think John's enjoying his return to the mountains.

    Not sure Mark had run these particular roads, but they sure were fun. He sure ran them like he knew these roads like the back of his hand...and that's really saying something when you look at the rear tire he was using. Although I'm sure it gave him more trills per mile.

    Crappy picture, but yes, that's Mt Hood!

    Getting the salute!

    Not sure if this is snow, or HEAVY frost, but was the only white we found.

    Mark's new kickstand :D

    I think I feel a new Thanksgiving tradition being made. Thanks guys.
