Fiesta!

Hey Gang!
Kim (Little Bull) and I, are planning to meet at the Summit, Thursday to watch the Fiesta Bowl. Game starts at 6:30. I'll get there about 6, and stake out a table. Any and all are welcome to join! Go Ducks! (...or Wildcats, if you're of that persuasion. We won't hold it against you. )

Hmmmm, might sneak out for that, we'll see. Summit is so darned noisy, hard to chat with the homeys.

VT I had a DR for 4 years, just sold it... so I might have some useful tribal knowledge... maybe.

Little chilly out on Sunday...

Get some snow shoes for that thing, would you?

From the looks of the air box cover, the snow had a little fun with ya! We were supposed to ride Cline that weekend, but skipped the slick stuff for time in the hot tub and sauna - you know how I do love the snow!

Little bit of action over on Lava Lovers Lounge... seems like it's been too cold or too wet. I rode twice last week and it was a bit of an "adventure" each time.

Glad you brought it up...

Stacie and I were just talking yesterday about the lack of meet-ups (not) going on. So...we plan on getting together next Thursday, the 7th at the Summit Saloon - 6ish. Consider this your invitation/notice/kick in the butt.

Hope to see you. First one there, grab a really big table. I'm an optimist.

Kim

Another meet up?

Hi, my name is Brad and I am new to this sport and would love to learn more about good places to ride and meet some cool local folks that also enjoy the outdoors on these fine machines.
Thanks,
Brad

Brad -

Usually there's a grungy crew at BBC on Tuesdays or Good Life on Thursdays (local's night ya know... gotta save money for farkling). I'm a pretty regular Tuesday nighter but this stupid thing called "work" has been seriously cutting into my drinking time this year.... (just now rode home... pedals, not motor).

What do you ride and what kind of riding do you prefer?

New to Bend or just to the sport?

Justin

Thanks for the reply!

Hi Justin - thank you for the reply. I've lived here for about 6 years and have been playing here most of my life. My wife decided we should get into motorcycling (she rode dirt bikes a lot as a kid), so we did. I have a 650 X Challenge and am interested in doing some light off-roading anywhere this side of the Cascades. Mucky single track doesn't interest me at this point. My skills are not up to par as I'm new to the sport and I do NOT expect anyone to hold my hand. I expect to put in the effort and time to learn how to do it safely and have a good time.
It would be cool to meet some folks that are into this and learn from them as well as get to know more folks around town. We are so fortunate to live in such a cool place.
What time on Tuesday and Thursdays do the crowds usually end up meeting?
Thank you,
Brad
