    Salutations from the Knotty Pine in Republic. Heading east to see the parents.

    Great farming/ag themed get together. Happy to show off a few crash bar tilling techniques.

    I hope everyone has a great day 2. A pleasure meeting everyone.

    Great day today!! Sorry no pics and this is for anyone maybe worrying about us. Coming down the long steep steep hill back down to valley between Concunully and Loomis I had to go heavy on the brakes. Then I lost the rear brake cause it got too hot, putted a bit further and front stopped working. Hung on as bike started speeding up and got it to a stop!! F’ Me Runnin’!! Didnt die today!! Worked ourway down engine off slowly. Took a cool down break and got seperated from group before Concunully. Got passed by last of them but missed turn to Concunully. So slab up the 97 for lunch in Tonasket!! Life is still good and we had enough!! Hahaha!

    Headed back a day early, due to the amount of swearing I did trying to get my sock and shoe on after yesterday...

    Did pick up a new rear tire, maybe it'll goto Tuk?!

    Thanks again great to meet you guys!

    Nice to meet everyone . The test of my neck in off pavement yielded poor results so I only rode about 35 miles on Saturday after overshooting a turn off . Note to self , zoom in a bit closer on the tracks . Played with my drone a little and came back a day early . Applying beer and neck rub from wife (I hope) . Just a few shot of base camp . Thanks Bill and family , those boys are great entertainment ! Bebop2_20190616075512-0700.jpeg Bebop2_20190616075812-0700.jpeg IMG_3973.jpeg

    Some images from the weekend:

    Day 1 - Riding out:
    Always do a shot as I'm getting ready to go
    [​IMG]

    No problems finding the campsite, already saw some of the tracks lighting up on my GPS
    Nice little spot
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rode back & forth to Tonasket to text and try and connect with oldschool, but we didn't connect (didn't realize the house didn't have coverage at the time). So I chased down some firewood, can't camp without a fire.

    The lake looks neat at night too

    Day 2 - First day offroading
    Again rode into town to check text messages, passed a guy on a big KTM (was Jerry who was wondering where the hell I was going :D )

    No messages, gassed up and decided to just go follow the route.
    Things got a bit more rugged towards to top

    Amazing view!

    Tracks were smaller than what I normally ride on the SuperT
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Whacked my leg pretty good on the hardbags, rode out and met Jerry. Didn't take many photos afterwards, except for one shot at lunch
    [​IMG]

    Anyway, no photos after, did my own riding and later went over to the house and hung out a bit. Good day, but I was bushed :)

    Day 3 - Sunday
    The wack to my calf was bothering me a lot over night and in the morning, decided to head home a day early, so took my time packing up and had a relaxing ride back.

    Stopped some places that I'd normally zip past

    Light was great:

    Stopped to pick up a tire (MotoZ Tractionator GPS) I'd had shipped to Blaine
    [​IMG]

    Secure enough, didn't lose it and made it back ;)
    [​IMG]

    Sorry to have missed on the 2nd day of riding, but am a bit gimped today. Need to come back with a bit smaller bike!

    Great time, good people, glad I came out!

    My thoughts exactly AJ. The good news is the Superbug:pynd Is ready to ride again. It had a lot of issues but it should now last me a few more years so I might just be able to make this ride next year. If it happens again.

    Enjoying the pics, keep them coming.

    HUGE thanks to Wsobchak (and family) for hosting the event and letting us invade their house and lives for the weekend. Great riding, great people, great hosts. It doesn't get any better than that! Honorable mention to Big Jer for providing the porta-crapper! Hope to see you all again in the future.

    I looked for a half hour for shag carpet and a beer, none to be found then i remembered a ktm pit mat but nope it was already a new bedspread so a red shoprag donated by @dirtystevedirt had to suffice, im sure if i would of looked further i would of found what i was looking for but it was in a defilade im sure.....
