    I cancelled my Giant Loop Rally last month due to COVID-19. Originally, the plan for several of us was to do a dual sport trip on the back end of the event to make it worth the trek up north into Oregon. They moved the date to September, but the Dual Sport trip still happened with a small group of guys (4 day adventure in South Eastern Oregon.

    I live in the Bay Area (not far from you). You post had me curious. It sounds like you're talking about riding from Livermore, CA to Crystal Crane, OR. That is 580 miles on the highway. You were talking about staying off the highway.

    Two questions for you: (1) What bike where you planning on riding? (2) What route are you planning on taking?

    I started dual sporting about 10 years ago and currently have a KTM500Exc and would have loved to join your group for the DS ride.

    I picked up a Tiger 800xcx earlier this year to get into Adventure riding and plan on riding that. I was originally going to Death Valley Noobs ride and take booth bikes but that didn't happen. So, decided to go to the GL Rally just to get out of the house and ride.... My plan is to camp at Eagle Lake just outside of Susanville this first night via 70 out of Sac/Yuba City to 36 to 139. I was going to use backroads to get to Sac but will probably just jump on 580 to 5 early Thursday morning to get that stretch out of the way. Friday will take 139 north to 299 and connect to 395 to Burns. I haven't decided on my return route yet.

    Okay folks, the smoke has gotten worse rather than better as the day has rolled on. It is now substantially unhealthy to be outside for any amount of time. I recommend we reschedule for either next Tuesday or next Wednesday. Any preference?

    Thanks, and agree - it's nasty outside. I'm in for either day, flexible.

    Sorry I let you down. The air is just awful out today. It was better yesterday, just more orange.

    Hey folks, I'm selling one of my yellow 2006 Suzuki DR650s. Yes, I have two. Link to ad in Flea Market. Note that this is not the incredible flying machine that I rode off the cliff in Utah on the TAT. I still have that one. This one previously belonged to my TAT riding partner Darrell.

    Yeah, that's my favorite bike-for-sale-photo-shoot spot these days.

    Okay, I'm going to try again and go to the Westbrae Biergarten this Wednesday. The air should be better (probably couldn't be worse).

    Anyone else interested, or will I have to drink your beers?

    Guess I'll be drinking alone. See myself around 6:00 or so this evening at Westbrae then...
