Northward extension

And in the event you want to extend the overall difficulty rating - ford the Owyhee River from Birch Creek and exit north of the Owyhee Reservoir !

So I've lost close to 30 lbs since Christmas and my size 36 Klim Traverse Gore-Tex pants are too big for me. Anybody interested for $200? The only blemish is on the back of the left leg. My Crf wanted to spoon with me a few weekends ago and the pipe got me. It's not burned all the way though and the spot isn't burned anywhere close to all the way through. This is great deal on some great pants.

Was going to try to get out there last weekend in the cage, but ran out of time.

Ed, I am having an issue with the bike and if I can't get it resolved today I'm out. It's been making some strange sounds, I went to adjust my doo and the bolt was totally loose :( I took off the left side cover last night and there is no tension on the spring. The doo is still in the middle of it's travel, and I *think* the balancer chain and sprockets are o.k. but I need to get a rotor holder wrench to get in there and look a little closer and put in the shorter spring(which I have). So if anybody has a doo wrench laying around I would be very interested in borrowing it!

tour of Eastern Oregon... fun ride

We posted this ride up on the IAMC site but had no takers... (couldn't do spec ed's ride, have to work those days) anyway, my friend Gaylon came with me and we had a great time... our attempt to take back roads from Birch Creek to Inskip Station, was quite an adventure, we got through ok, but didn't quite get the route we had planned on... ended up exiting at Arock... great weather and fun ride... ya'll come along next tiime!!

meet up at the ION station, junction of hi-way 55 and 95


rockville


MacBride Creek




heading into Birch Creek




I've floated the Lower Owyhee and Birch Creek is the take out site... it's a nice river trip...




Camp at Birch Creek Ranch




Jordan Craters


the back way to Inskip Station




Gaylon is out there somewhere...


In some places the road kinda fades in and out...


Lava pavement... actually the best road we had on the trip!!


Charbonneau and other pioneers memorial...


The Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo was on today, we had planned to attend, but our bad route finding delayed us and it was 1/2 over when we got to Jordan Valley, so we missed it... Dang! we had to settle for a late lunch at the JV restaurant and then head for home without seeing the rodeo... we had a great ride and saw some new country... yahoo!

I don't see myself getting too 'gonzo' on the DR... unless Heath talks me into the 440 kit for it.

Hope to ride with you soon.

Thanks to Heath and HT, the lights are all in order and the engine seems to be a strong runner. Changed the oil today. Need to get a couple air filters on order, then I should be ready to give it a go.

Birch

Great pics, Silver.

I really like that area. Ed took me down there once, and we saw the Birch Ranch and the landing there where you camped. Great little spring spot.

Congrats Ryan

You know that bike has gone around the world. Mondo Enduro is a must read for Adventure riders. You will laugh and wonder what the he## were these guys thinking.
Oh wait a minute, I did that when I used to ride with you and Heath

New ride

The list is getting whittled down. I might not be as dirt worthy as I used to be with the new knees and all. It will be something that Doc and Tom would really like though. Coming soon-I hope.
