    We will make something happen, dam it any how.

    Slow to get things going again after C-19 took the wind out of out sails and shut our club house down.

    We did have a good gathering at the Oregon Vintage Show yesterday so there is hope for 2021 any rate !

    Hey Pete,
    Been scouting out a place for you in our 'hood to meet up with you and dog.
    Be nice to hook up with the fellers down south, Eugene, too, to make it mo fun.
    What I came up with, I am almost positive, is a place they will even deliver pizzas.
    We can meet and greet you in your camp site so you can have all the wobbly pops you and dog wants, with out the fear of a DWI fine.
    The location is the same Benton Fair Grounds where we just had the Oregon Vintage Motorcycle Show last weekend.
    Nice oak trees for shade and lush green grass to sleep on.
    Quite too. It does not fill up unless there is an event, so mid week it's not likely.
    You can register on line. Just bounce around on their web sight.
    www.bentoncountyfair.net
    www.bceventcentercorvallis.net
    Deborah.McNair@co. benton.or.us
    541.766.6087

    There are other camp options too, but this place is steller so close in to town, with pizza delivery.
    Other options:
    *Somebody's house or back yard.
    *Mary's Peak ~ 4XXX ft elevation compared to 350 ft., = cooler.
    *Alsea Falls, not close in to town, and it does fill up.

    Thoughts?

    Cheers !

    I had reservations at a motel in Lebanon, then a friend in Corvallis offered us a bed. But now I see the reservation isn’t refundable so crap!

    Well, sorry to have missed you this time, @Boondox - hopefully, you've had someone show you around.
    Stop by next time and safe travels over the busy holiday weekend coming up.


    Cheers!

    Deal of the day at Don and Deb's swap meet.....Bob scored a one piece Aerostitch suit, that looked like new, for, wait for it............$ 100.
    Perfect fit. I might say.
    Wow.

    Perfect day to sit out side and enjoy the weather and friends.

    I still can't believe it, either! I kept looking over my shoulder on the way home - felt like I stole it.
    Talk about right place, right time!
    I wasn't really looking for one of these, but I saw it laying on the table, and I kept looking at the guy selling it, and I'm thinking - man, we look about the same size - maybe I should try it on... And it fit like a glove.
    What a beautiful piece of kit these suits are!

    Amiright Jerry?

    So remember to give a wave when you roar past the guy in the grey 'stitch riding the wheezing Rotax - It's someone you know!

    Was good to see yous guys - we should get the gang back together this summer for sure

    Cheers!

    I scored another of my favorite riding pants. I usually don't bother unless the guy selling is looking me in the eye. The guy selling was not a tall, but the pants were. You got to look.

    Congrats there on the new stitch.

    They are fantastic and open up your riding days to include a few more raindrops. I rode 8 hours in the rain with doggitter one day and only my gloves were wetted out.

    The only time I felt uncomfortable in my stitch was when the saltwater went over the top zipper.:baldy

    Newbies, please reference my Avatar

    Anyone go up and over FS11Yellow Bottom / Quartville Road out of SweetHome this year?

    Itching for a ride and seems like a good idea today...anyone else need a ride today?

    Sorry about the late invite.

    Edit: Roads open.

    Lot of traffic on 22.

    Came back the same way on FS11 after running down to Detroit to see what that looks like after the fire.
    Marrion forks restaurant is open and the porch out back next to the stream is the place to be.

    200 mile ride..great ride, great bike, the 990 KTM ADV.

    Happy Hour, of course! :drink
    I'm flexible - off work at four, any time after that.

    If the weather is nice, I'm open to meeting down in Monroe, too.

    From June 7-14 I enjoyed an eight-day, 1900-mile, four state ride. Five days riding solo and three days riding with Bill G. Notable locations include Fields Station, Alvord Desert, Snake River, Hells Canyon, Imnaha River, Rattlesnake Grade, Palouse and Palouse Divide, and Blue Mountains. Visited family and friends in Baker City, Halfway and Lewiston. Camped three nights. Perfect weather – never exceeded upper 80’s and lows were mid-40’s, which was comfortable for camping. (Bill met me in Halfway and did get to ride through snow to get there.)

    Here are some photos ...
