    Hi @Ladybug -
    I don’t know if you got my email but BigWan and I are out :(.
    Still in TN and our to-do list keeps getting longer. I cancelled our RV reservation and assume it’s already been reassigned.
    Have a great rally - looks like a big turnout!

    Sorry, you aren't able to make it :(: Those to-do lists are sure a bugger at times.

    Just saw the 10-day weather forecast for Enterprise. For the rally, night temps in the lower 50's, but daytime highs reaching a face-melting 80 degrees. Maybe even 83. And partly sunny. OMG! We might have to cancel due to excessive heat. And excessive sunlight. Will there be medics standing by to treat for heat prostration?

    Now where did I store my mesh jacket?

    That's a long stretch. Not sure it'll hold.

    Mrs. Selkirk ADV and I are planning on being there, she's anxious to meet other women ADV/Dual sport riders. We'll be tent camping. We each ride DR650's and plan on getting in on the ride from Asotin.

    I'm glad you will be joining us this year. :thumb

    On the IN list for the two of you. It's where all the fun kids play.
    The Thurs. Asotin ride is always a good one. I'll be on that ride and you will know me when you see me. Look for the short, round, white-haired, senior citizen, riding a little bike. :lol3
    There will probably be a dozen plus, women riders attending the campout. Mrs Selkirk ADV will get to meet and get to know some of of at the Thurs. evening women's get together in camp.

    Joining the little bike club this year! Cautiously optimistic while coming from a bigger bike.

    Hi Suzy :wave

    As you know, I like my little bikes. I enjoyed my DR200 (the Superbug) so much I added a TW200 to the lineup in my garage. Pluses and negative with riding tiny bikes but there are pluses and negative with big bikes too. :D

    Tks Ladybug! You give me hope. The 250 is as uncorked as I can make it without a bigger piston. Not planning to go more than 160 miles per day and not on any roads where people drive at warp speed.

    I am IN.
    I have several items for the swap meet, including Husqvarna 701 farkles, and the 701 itself...
