    I shipped one to Silver Lake, OR. It's waiting for him there. They should be there in 2 days. Turns out there's not much in the way of Apple Stores or AT&T stores in the desert. :jump

    I replied with Ray Slocomb's contact info in LaPine, OR. Engines can be rebuilt or replaced, but it's not the sort of thing you do overnight. Sounds like that one is riding home in a trailer.

    Love this pic of Trailer Rails and sagebushes as far as the eye can see... this is somewhere between McDermitt, NV and Fields, OR.

    I remember someone mentioning this before but don't remember where? They're in Cedarville, CA on their way to Lake View, OR. Said Cedarville was very smokey. There are two fires in about 100 mile radius.

    Very cool area. I remember taking Harris Springs road from 89 north to Lava Beds. Very interesting remote area. Watch out for deer.

    I made it back to Moab. The BRP is strapped in the back of a 10' box van at the camp ground. I'm sitting in Moab Brewery enjoying some Johnnys. That sucks for me I can't finish what I started, but my 300 XCW will be on a trailer this weekend. Next ride starts Monday. Can't wait to ride dirt bikes in Salida and Crested Butte. Thanks Eric and Nate for bring me a bike.

    Do some donuts on the beach when you make it.

    I hope you all fill in some of the stories after you are off the bikes and have the time. It sounds like there must have been a lot of fun and hard work. A little bit of despair overcome. Well done! Trailer Rail is a lucky guy to have Trailer Rail's Wife.

    That is very sweet of you to say. Thank you. :-)

    I can't wait for them to get home so I can hear the stories and see the pictures and the Go Pro videos!

    Me too. Men love to take care of their partner but do find it easier to take care of their motorcycle even though it is actually much more difficult.

    :D:D

    This just made me belly laugh. I want to cross stitch that sentiment onto a pillow. Trailer Rails is actually a pretty romantic dude in private and a bit more of a tough guy in public. I'm sure this exchange will embarrass the hell out of him. I like it.

    I guess we should get back to talking about motorcycles before someone kicks us out of here! I ride a DR350. Thinking about getting an XT250 this winter and Farkeling it all winter! Trailer is getting a WR250R when he gets home!

    The ghetto trailer survived the trip out to Denver, with a few minor breaks. First thing we noticed was the spare tire that was mounted to the tongue of the traler was missing at our first gas stop. Then a piece of the fenders was missing at our dinner stop along with the licence plate and light which got sucked into the wheel. Luckily they were still hanging on. A little gorilla tape was used to help hold on the reaming fender.

    They were hoping to make it to the Pacific today... rock slides, wildfires and a section labeled "Single Track" that was actually a "No Trail" caused a few detours between Crescent, OR and Glendale, OR.

    There will be great stories about today!

    Pacific tomorrow! :clap

    We took a lot of the optional Red difficult sections. This was one of them. There has not been a motorcycle back there for years.
