My goodness that was fun! We were the last ones breaking camp and left about 10- 10:30 on the road. Thanks @WSobchak for the great hosting and allowing us to hang out and ride your great routes! Love your family!! Cheers!!

    Thanks for coming up, it was very nice to meet you and Mrs Oldschoolrocker. I was VERY impressed with you skills on a loaded bike, with a passenger AND trailer! I'll shoot you a PM if we do it again!

    890 miles in one go? Damn. Should have added the extra 110 and done an IronButt!

    :D

    @WSobchak what great people you and your wife are to invite all of us heathens to your home and hang out for a weekend.

    Also a shout out to everyone who came out to ride, drink a few beers, bench race and eat some food.

    Another great weekend of riding in the INW!

    WSobchak, I really enjoyed your country and family, the boys had so much fun showing off their moto skills , I can see the three of you as great riding partners.
    Thanks for sharing routes with us.

    The warning to others who are privileged to ride in this beautiful place you may come home with one more bike Than you came with, happened to me.

    The next generation deployed some mad skillz with the Red Ryder, and assisted in tent setup.. was awesome. Thanks again for hosting!

    I headed back Sunday morning and spent most of the day with the folks, and a curious goose escaped the neighboring homestead and came over. Our cat attempted to "stalk" it, and then flopped over for play time / belly rub... :D "I can't quite eat it but may as well get some enjoyment out of it." Seems legit.

    Great ride, great tracks, great company, weather turned out to not be a total scorcher, all around great weekend.

    Thanks again for the fuel, Will and Sara - both the 97 octane ethanol free, and also the sourdough flapjacks, bear/bacon sausages, T-bone steaks, and skillet potatoes. Pretty much everything a Sam needs.

    I got around to fiddling with the adjustment sliders in Lightroom and got photos from day 1 edited. Here's a link to the full album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/samkchou/albums/72157709142777472

    And THIS is why I like riding hot on on your tail - epic footy!



    That's about the only video teaser you get til I cut together an edit. ...someday.

    I only had enough time and motivation to edit day 1's pictures yesterday. But since you made the effort to get wet, here you go:

I had a wonderful time and loved meeting everyone! Enjoyed every bit of it ( eavesdropping on 5 different convos at once, witnessing daily chipmunk murders and early morning yoga) Of course the highlight was your two well mannered boys! I miss them....please tell them I said hello!❤️❤️

    It's not like I brought a yoga mat to sleep on. It's for my 1 legged dog stretches @HoneyBunny
