    @chinook1, you're now on the IN list. If you want to meet up with me somewhere in the Spokane area the week before the campout I can haul your parts down for you. I trailer my bike down since I bring things I use for the campout like a huge coffee pot and then I can camp in my van. :D

    For the Ladies

    A few hours to share what works for us, those things that are unique to the women riders.
    Thursday from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm
    The start of the topic list:
    • Underwear that works well under riding gear and is comfy for long days riding.
    • Hygiene on the road/trail.
    • Safety while riding and camping solo.
    • Lower body strength vs upper when it comes to motorcycling.
    • Staying healthy while riding.
    I'll tell you what works for me and hopefully, the other ladies will share what works for them. Please bring things you find useful so we can do a show and tell. I might tell you more stories than you want to hear but I will try to go easy on you. I have learned a lot over the last almost 50 years but I haven't always kept up on the things out there that are new and improved.

    Guys, we won't be chatting about things that would apply to men so please don't feel excluded.
    My experience with men is most of them really don't like to hear about the things we will be going over. :lol3 With the women off doing this, you will have a chance at the campfire to talk "Man Talk".

    Ladies, if anyone really wants to be included in this but won't be able to be at camp by Thurs. please send me a PM and I will consider changing the day.

    Wow, that would be amazing. I've been meaning to hook up with the Spokane Area Riders. Maybe one of the regular rides would be a great time to hand you a box of junk! Thank you so much!

    CT200 are old school cranks with dipper connecting rod, it's mostly splash lube. There's not enough room in case to stroke or OEM parts to rebuild You're possibly thinking of the Powroll stroker kit for the OHC 90, Those were never bigger than 140cc. there's just not enough meat in the cylinder or room in the crank circle You can buy a number of different clone pitbike engines upwards to 180 cc if you want to subject that poor chassis to close to 15~20 HP.

    Well... It looks as if the family and I will have to sit this one out. A family friend had the audacity to schedule his wedding for the same timeframe as the rally.
    We will be planning for next year though!

    @1911fan Hopefully someone else will have some room in their vehicle.

    Super, I've added you to the IN list.

    Well darn, I was looking forward to seeing you and the family. Some people just don't know they are supposed to revolve their events around motorcycle activities. See you next year.

    Well, dang, and thanks for the heads up. Getting six puppies delivered this weekend so will be home, maybe I'll post pics in the flea market. Men's textile riding pants, women's FirstGear jacket, BMW StreetRider jacket, and so on. Kinda bulky.

    I had hoped to meet you at the Spring Break at The Crooked River affair, so I will make sure I do meet you at the Wallowa Jamboree. Count me in. I have spoken with Todd, who says my truck will fit in the back without problems, and that Cameo, the golden retriever is welcome. Will arrive Wednesday so I can make the Thursday ride.

    Hey that's my job! That way I have a reason to bring up the rear besides being slow.

    Darn, I was hoping he would come. It's been a long time since I have seen him and Patty.

    I'll run sweep as long as you don't take us on slimy roads. :lol3 I'll keep track of @PNW Buttercup too. :D

    Edit June 7--found somebody to share the room.

    Don't want to camp?

    Guys, my dog Kirby and I are on the IN list but not camping. We're staying at the Eagle View Inn in Enterprise in a ground floor room with two queen beds. Six minutes by bike from the rally. 45 minutes walking.

    Check-in Thursday. Check out Sunday. Looking to split the cost of the room ($150/night). Non-smoker. I myself don't snore at all (CPAP). Got vaxxed all the way back in January.

    PM me if interested.

    Me and Kirby and our wheels ---->

    Do scooters count as “bikes”?
