Howdy All,

Went for a New Years day ride with Chris, worked our arses off in the deep snow, had a great time, I am tired, and very wore out, only fell twice, once to the left, once to the right, Chris didn't get a photo so technically it never happened.


The mighty Tdub gets high mark on the mountain on this section of the ride.






Three Eagles gave us quite a show, riding the thermo coming up the side of the ridge.








Mt Rainer, about 130 miles away from where we were riding, this photo was taken zoomed in as close as my cheap camera would go.






Mt. Rainer, is in-between the bikes, no zoom, 130 miles away.


Chris is "lubricating" the gate.


This gate and its story will be shared around the camp fire for years to come.


What a great day, not to cold, very sunny for this time of year, Thanks Chris for inviting my slow old arse to ride with you today.

I'd also like to know the answer. And if they are home made, did they start out as car chains, or were they built from scratch?

Nice picture of the moon Bob. My wife and I were 50 or so miles south of you at Seal Rock.





The ocean was hammering all weekend and then some. We were camping it the camper and could feel the waves crashing.







We had a nice weekend sending out the old year and bring in the new one. KEN

What a great weekend to be on the coast right? Here's a couple guys headed out of the Nahalem Bay into those huge waves. Not sure if they were doing some towing or what but it looked like fun.

By the time snapped off 5 photos they were out past the waves and heading north up the coast. Looked like something they had done numerous times.

Who are you addressing your question to, "IF" your talking about the chains used on my TW or Chris's Yamaha that were used in the recent photos posted contact Chris and ask him where he got them, they are a standard tire chain that fit the bikes. Chris's screen name is, ( n16ht5 )
