Great So Far!

Wonderful photos guys!!! I loved the Ruby Grade video from the GS. That can be a workout on the little bikes but a GS would be cardio. Keep it comin'!!! DD

I was just amazed that I was not seeing Mike & his Panzer capsized on one the of tight sandy turns.
Well I did come close a time or two! Here is a short clip of the run up the 'Jungle' I catch a rut about 10 seconds in and have to do a little course correction.

Hey Mike. I like the camera angle. First time I've seen the video. What strikes me most is how "relaxed" you are on the bike. I know that's one of my biggest obstacles. I'm still a bit tense and fighting the bike a bit.

I remember this stretch. I was behind the big GS. I had Mike in sight for about a minute - then he was gone. I couldn't keep up

Revit Sand

Hey Frank

Great RR so far! Noticed you rocked the Revit Sand gear on this ride. How did you like it after 2 straight weeks in the saddle? Still liking my Sand gear, unfortunately though it hasn't been put to test like yours was here. Most of my riding since I got the gear has consisted of the commute to work and back.

Thanks for taking the time to send us desk jockeys all the pics and dialog. I'm sure the are more guys than myself that would like to meet up as you cross into Oregon. There's a great place called the Charberger, just across the bridge of the gods outside of Stevenson Washington.

Have a safe trip!!

Hey Frank, most of those burned areas are just logged clear cuts, we used to burn them after logging so you can get back down to dirt to plant new trees. They call them 'meadow restoration projects' now, people don't like the term 'clear cut' anymore.


Enjoying the ride...

Keep them coming please. There are plenty of us with cold and snow outside right now. This helps us dream of warmer times and riding.

Looks like an awesome ride, great start to the report and super photos! Reading the RR makes me wonder why I ever leave the state! You hit the weather perfect, as Washington set a record last fall of 90 days - no rain from July through September.
