    You are the man Mr Bessey!! :clap

    I think it would be fun to get a ride put together. Are people interested in a dualsport ride or pavement for our 1st one?

    Give me some ideas?

    Keeping all options open - dirt/street ride.
    Perhaps we could get that meeting with everyone together first - just to say hello and kick the tires so-to-speak?
    I'm open for what ever..........

    Great idea for a thread.

    I like the idea of a get together some day to talk about some ride options.

    I'm new to dual sport riding and just getting to know my bike, so I'm going to take it easy at first.

    Is this limited to just WW riders? :huh

    We have off road, and dualsport bikes. We also own Wees and can do all pavement or less technical (slow) on our wees (example: Kendall skyline or pikes peak rds).

    From my point of view, this is a great way for anyone in the area who rides a dual sport to get to know others and get together for riding.

    I'm with you on the less technical for the time being. Just getting to know my new bike at the moment.

    Heck ya everyone can come!!

    I realize no matter what day or date we pick, it may not work for some. Because of that, we can post what we discussed and plans made after the meeting.

    Meeting: Thurdays (7/29) Mill Creek Brew Pub (11 S Palouse St) at 6:00. They have dinner, free peanuts, pop and beer, everything for everybody.

    Sorry,

    Meant to say Mill Creek Brew Pub. I fixed it in the original post. Maybe we should open a new brew pub called FT Walla Walla. Then we would have to start another thread. :deal :lol3

    Works for me, though I might not make it on the 29th due to a work commitment. I'll try.

    Laht Neppur Brewpub in Waitsburg is opening up on Spokane Street. That might be worth a look once they're up and running.

    I'm headed out this weekend on the V-Star for a motorcycle campout in Cashmere.

    Put me down as a maybe. I will try to make it but I make no promises.

    I cannot remember, Are minors allowed inside of Millcreek Brew Pub?

    liv2rydktms - Nope, Pendleton people are not welcome!

    I am certain all of us would greatly enjoy your company. The brewpub is a nice little establishment here in town just off of Main Street in downtown Walla Walla. I am certain you will enjoy it.

    Any of you headed down to the Rally in Stevenson, Wa this coming 28th-31st? It's a dual sport ,maxi scooter, touring, and sport touring rally all in one place. I've gone the past 3 years and really enjoyed it. I ussually don't decide till the night before cause I'm self-annoyed and depends on what work is doing at the opportune moment. Some very beautiful riding down in the Gorge with great twisties on both sides of the Columbia River.
    Great place for Smithee to try his new beemer :evil

    Heres a linky to the rallies:

    Do to work I was thinking Thur AM or possible Wed afternoon. but I just checked the date again and see it starts WED 28th. Dang I thought it started Thur so that changes things. I'm all for work less/ play more. Wed AM greatnortoni ?????
    Teamchaos you need to drag your dad in on this one. I've gone the last 3 years and really enjoy it. Only about 3 hours away in some of the most gorgeous riding around planet earth.
    L'bug we'll try and get more pics. I've gotten lazy in my later years and just forget half the time. Wish you could make it. rj
