Thanks for the memories

Just a quick note to say thanks for all the great rides I've done while living in the great PNW. DammitDave, Bill C, Tony, Hi-vis Dennis, Steven, Danride, sound rider groups and many others. I've moved on to northern VA but hope to be back soon. I already miss the fantastic scenery. I did get a chance to ride in southern UT just outside Bryce Canyon on my trip cross country. Truly amazing ATV trails, some as smooth as glass, others a little more techical, I highly recommend a visit. Safe riding!

Coaster,
Good luck to you and I hope you make it back to the NW before too long. A couple years ago, you and GSguy took me on my first Advrider ride as we got lost in teeny roads in the area of the High Steel Bridge. Thanks to you guys for being so patient and welcoming that I kept coming back to ADV rides (and for showing me that if a bike gets on the ground, take a picture before helping to pick it up ).

Here is a link to my ride report for the one day I went to San Josef beach while Dave was working on his bike.

We had beautiful sunny weather so the photos look good. Also check out the "Drama in the Dust".

Hey Brian... looks like you 2 had a great ride.There seems to be alot of destroyed roads out in the forests and Mts. this year. We went camping over on the Cle Elum river and met up with family and friends and we all took the dirt bikes and did a single track loop .I will post a couple of pics.

there were 5 sections where the roads were washed out and had to ride the ditch or on the ragged edge

I have to tell you Erg59, that this is about the ugliest, unruliest group of riders I have ever seen a picture of. The kids are all right, seem normal, but the adults appear to be derelicts, deficients and other less than savory characters. The guy on the far right in the group photo...gone. My advise is to say...Mark said hey, sorry he missed out, looks like you had fun.

Ya...not everyone knows that when you get an ORV tag in Washington it comes with one meal voucher... it was all you can eat Crab Legs though. In my buddys defense that was quite the chest protector way back in 1975 when he was MXing his Hodaka Combat Wombat all over Eastern Washington. I will tell him that 1975 called and it wants its chest protector back...
