Just four of us in two sidecars went for the ride. Hard rain turning to freezing rain. about 3 1/2 hours, 45 miles or so. Got to within about five miles of my house and were stopped by a downed tree. Tried to pull it out of the road with Ed's rig and a chain, but just dug a hole with the Ural. Had to turn around and go back. Dropped out of the mountains to the East and took the freeway back from Mosier. Front wheel packed with snow and way out of balance. Got pretty weird for a few minutes when I got on the freeway and cranked it up to 70- the snow sort of exploded in big chunks from the spokes and the wheel eventually balanced itself.
Will post pix in a couple of days if they turn out.
