Don't blink here, you'll miss the lunch stop.



The lady in the EMPTY M&T's Bar & Grill, said they talk about the burgers "all around here".
Not much to talk about in Roosevelt apparently.
They hit the spot, but right here is about all I'll ever talk about them ever again

Above Roosevelt, on the road North to Bickleton is a great view spot.
Pictures don't do this spot justice.
I took several, but they all looked boring. Truth is the view was of NOTHING. For miles and miles and miles.
Just windmills and nothing as far as you can see.



From here, we pretty much hauled ass on the empty and very cold hilltop to Bickleton, and then a quick fuel run to Mabton.
On that road, my bright Orange bike was seen quickly approaching somebody's rear view mirror, while he was cruising along at about 55mph.
Instead of passing, I got to match big speeds for a bit with a newer Shelby Mustang, showing off what third and fourth gear can do .

We got to come back down that windy pavement that you saw back in this RR, back to Goldendale, then Hwy 97, to 14, to The Dalles,
and the end of our journey for the day.

See you next week!
