2511 miles for me. Maybe if it was a little warmer..... When do they have summer up there? On a Tuesday in August between 2 and 4 PM?

And then you end up with a quandrum much like we have here.

Heck....the North American TAG 'EGGY' spent a winter burried in a snowbank back on the East Coast, until an early 'toughnut' came and dug him out.


Spring will come, the snow will melt, and riders will come out to play once again.




...of course....there 'are' those few select hardcore riders who simply never shut down!
The "problem" with a game like this is Texas riders not understanding that you PNW riders had already garaged your bikes for the winter over 6 months ago. What is that all about?!

We gotta send one of our women up there to move Nutsy, or what?

It was Texans that put Nutsy up there in the first place. It's time for you to do your part now.

I only had 2 of my bikes garaged last October. Was touring Mexico on the GSA at the time.

Now why don't you boys just trim the pink lace off your panties, man up, and go fetch Nutsy? Or send one of your women. I hear they ride strong.

I had assumed that the reason that nobody had gotten it yet was due to a lack of PNW riders following this thread. There is at least one here. Its supposed to be a mild winter. Just saying...

Well, I'm heading through that way in JULY. I hope its moved on by then, but if not I'll get it then.

I may be moving to eastern WA later this spring...I sure hope it's gone before I get to Spokane but if it's not I'll fetch'm.

I am really surprised that no one out west is riding. Shoot...I'm 60 days in the saddle of 60 days so far this year and it's been a mild winter here. The coldest weather that I've had to contend with this season is 24 degrees (no heated gear). Snow, rain, frozen fingers...it's all part of the adventure.

Patrick, here is an idea, tell your riding buddies about this thread. Get the info out there in your area. It will, eventually, get to someone who is interested enough to play.

I do love ya there Schizzman...but I ain't riding 600+ miles through snow and ice, over 3 mountain ranges, to fetch this thing just so I can impress ANYONE. even you....(sorry.)

(in all honesty...business is so bad right now that I'm considering closing up shop, not to mention that we're now raising our 3 toddler grandbabies!!)



I'd go if I had the chance...trust me.

Luv ya, too, bro'!

So when DO the roads start clearing up enough to get out and ride around up there? I'd like to do a ride to the PNW sometime but, like you, I'm not too keen on encountering ice and snow.

Well...I live over on the coast. It may snow 1 day a year over here, so I ride all year round.
been out riding for the last 3 days now.

but go 100 miles inland, and there's a whole new story!!
