So late to this thread. What is the plan? Not totally sure I can ride, but would love to do it.

GS or Husky?

PM or Call me Hugo.

Great job M&M!

I sure missed out. But at least i got quite a few things done around here. Painting is done and moved on to car maintenance. Oil, cap, rotor, coolant, brake fluid, I even broke the fill tube pulling off the old filter...grrrrr. Fixed a vacuum leak which restored cruise control, found a cracked PCV valve, and lubricated a squeaky pully.

Gave him a wash, vacuumed out the interior for the first time in years! Did windows, applied rainX. I even laid the primary power cable for an amp I will be running.

As good as thi8s feels, I would have much rather been riding. So thank fellas for enjoying the day for me!

Yes, fun ride indeed. Thanks, Radioman. And it looks like you had a scenic ride back to PDX also. I've got a GPS track of this route -- the route RedMenace outlined (Washougal-SunsetFalls-Cougar Rock-Panther Creek-Willard-White Salmon) -- PM me if you are interested.

That route won't be open much longer this season. It was 26f here this morning and I am only at 800'. Sposed to stay cold this week and start raining by Tuesday. I expect the high spots along that route will see snow soon...
