    2012 Hells Canyon/Wallowa Valley Gathering
    Looking froward to it!
    It will be nice to compare bikes there too!

    Thank You! I'm going to check the work schedule and and do some serious politicing with the wife. I might just be able to pull that off.

    I have been kicking myself for missing westfest two years in a row when it was so close! This should probably be as much fun! I'm pretty sure I can get to there from east Idaho with very little pavement:wink: (It might take a couple days though:D)

    Had to update the Dedication list this morning... as Mrs Kemmler who owned about the best little family resturaunt around, passed on this past Tuesday. And my good friend Jenny's (who showed up a couple times in the RR) Dad passed on early Friday morning. Everything is better now as he was pretty much trapped in the ol' body.... free to soar around the cosmos now.
    Peace be with you all,
    Jim

    Here for reals.

    I am trying to get caught back up with this thread when I came across this post today. Man, page ten is LONG!!!! But it is so fantastic!

    I just wanted to assure you that even for a stiff bastard like me, your free flowing vibes are coming through loud and clear! I want you to know that you have an audience and I suppose that, at least for myself, I don't want to post my drivel and mess up the sweet ride that is your life! Keep on keepin' on!

    Hey Thanx Ratman... I really appreciate the compliment ! :freaky

    And
    And maaan Thanx Rev my brother! Yup all is gooood... was gonna try'n hit 9 Rally's in the next 12 weeks... but decided it was too much of a rush and to put others in front of meeeeee. And after meeting Esther (NomadGal- she is riding all around the Country this year on a KLR in searching for her Path in life... I'll post a link to her Blog when I get it.) this past weekend at Diamond Lake Tech day I noticed her enginge sounding....BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!!!!! So gonna take some time out here in Idaho with the HELP of my Brother Wayne from Lewiston (where we are now) and put in a new engine for her. Just found one on Ebay with only 426 miles on it....:clap:clap:clap

    Sooooooooooooo......................
    I've been questioning my communications/path these last couple a days as I'm out West on a new HighAdventurTour as we speak....
    Been thinking of cutting back on the hustle/rush aspect of the Ride aaand thought maybe I should cut back on the picture thought heavy style of my RR's. Maybe I should keep the heavy preaching/perspective/truth to those folks I meet in person?
    Make sure my EGO isn't getting too far into the picture again.....................


    After meeting several GREAT folks at a KLRish Tech Day Gathering at Norris's place near Diamond Lake http://klrworld.com/forums/index.php/topic,21100.0.html this past weekend, seeing your two replies, then seeing that NomadGal needs help.......... I realize I need to keep spreading the LOVE and where it catches hold it will grow like wildfire....
    like the tree of life itself.... and where it doesn't look like it will take root, I'll know to maybe keep my thoughts to myself....

    Anyway.... wanted to say thank you for the feedback and confirmation of my Path.

    Peace to you all,
    JJ

    Your RRs are always very unique and enjoyable. I like the fact you put down in words what you are feeling. No filters.
