    Uh oh, that doesn't sound like fun. I guess you'll have to make up for the unfun bicycle ride with a fun motorcycle ride today.

    Big Jer should be on the road about now. I'll bet he's having a beautiful ride. Early morning rides in the summer are the best and he's riding Flowery Trail which is always a fun ride. I swear they paved that road just for street bikes. :ricky


    Mr. Fishypants, when are you going to get over this way to ride with us? :ddog

    You must have broke a few speed barriers getting home! Here's a link to the day trip....

    Next we have to get over your way... make sure the weather cooperates!!!

    Although, 400 miles on the seat of the KLX is liable to maim me for life..:scratch

    '
    for somebody who does over 100mph on dirt... I don't want to even think how low you were flying today on the KTM. If I go over chances are I'll haul over and then ride. But the weather has to be a wee bit cooler or I'll croak.

    They were both fun. I do appreciate not bleeding today though.


    Here's the link to the vintage weekend at Fairfield Sept. 11th and 12th.

    You rode some of the fun ones and getting to ride them all in one day makes it that much more fun plus you had the way cool bonus of getting to see us in the middle of your ride. :D

    Thanks for making the ride over, it was good seeing you again. :thumb



    If I head over that way I'll be riding, my bike isn't a truck trollop :amazon :lol3 You have the Giant Loop now and you can hit Walmart for one of those seat pads and you'll be set. :deal


    I noticed you were being careful as you taking off and puting on your helmet. I didn't get a picture of the bright purple eye, I thought PNWbuttercup had it covered but it looks like you were spared this time.

    Thanks for the link for the vintage weekend, it looks like fun and I want to watch you complete with your Bultaco.



    I'll go checkout and add a few pics to PNWbuttercups ride report now.

    Do you think I may be able to stack, say, three-high on the seat? Ya that would be cool! My first valid adv trip... no truck... need a tent tho.


    Hint: preview the Bultaco at the next local INWTA trials...:deal

    I just have the advantage of getting home sooner and posting up. You take better pictures!!!

    OK... Ladybug and all, it's time for me to make a fool of myself!
    Spokane fair grounds Sat. Aug 21 for the debut of my 1968 Yamaha DT1 project bike.
    [​IMG]
    Never been to the Fairgrounds, but from the photo on their website, looks to be 1/4 mile or so.

    I'll be entering in the "Vintage Am" class for twin shock bikes earlier than 1980. Might be my best chance to do good. Might be some other old fools on relics.
    It's been 35 years since I've ridden on a oval track!!

    I like old fools on relics but underwear race? :eek1 :lol3 Now that sounds entertaining.

    The flier was a little difficult to figure out as far as what time the races are or maybe I haven't had enough coffee. :*sip* Is the one schedule the same for all three dates?

    Anyone else want to go to the races and watch old fools on relics and Valley Rider too?

    I might be up to watch the race this weekend if my mom leaves town by then.

    I broke my back last weekend so I may not be up for sitting on a hard wood seat for a few hours. :D
