    Maybe pass you on the road. I'll be heading to Spokane to do some shopping tomorrow thru the Nelway border crossing.

    What a lovely new thread you have Buttercup.
    I think I can go Sunday. Sullivan Lake, Metaline Falls and Boundary Dam make a nice ride on a hot day. The last time I did it a Grizzly Bear ran across the road in front of me.

    9:00 A.M. at the CONOCO on HWY 2 and Deer Park Milan.

    We can take backroads to Newport and then the LeClerc Road (Eastside) of river to Metaline Falls?... Lamotovita -- you've likely ridden more this area than I -- you have a better more interesting route? :deal Just remember the 250 barely makes 60mph!

    I'm open to suggestions....

    I just got back from 5 days with my brothers, nephews and son in and around Glacier NP. Did a lot of Driving (no riding :cry) and hiking.

    also picked up a DVD called Dual Sport Riding Techniques. Will be practicing somewhere where none of you can watch me dump the bike :evil.

    Maybe next time??

    I might make it, if I do I'll head straight up to Usk and will be there by 10:00 am. I'm guessing we will meet at the gas station/store/burger joint where we got in out of the rain the last time we all got together.

    The lawyer and gun thing has me a little worried though. :scratch

    If I'm not there at 10:00 that means I'm not coming but I'll probably be there. Someone told me I needed to run a couple tanks of gas through my bike and I should listen because I know if he tells me to ride my bike he must be a wise man. :D

    OK, just to prepare everybody, I had a little bicycle crash. One side of my face looks like burnt hamburger, the eye is purple and swollen, the ear is still there, mostly. LET'S RIDE!
