You are the man Mr Bessey!!

I think it would be fun to get a ride put together. Are people interested in a dualsport ride or pavement for our 1st one?

Give me some ideas?

Walla round

Keeping all options open - dirt/street ride.
Perhaps we could get that meeting with everyone together first - just to say hello and kick the tires so-to-speak?
I'm open for what ever..........

Great idea for a thread.

I like the idea of a get together some day to talk about some ride options.

I'm new to dual sport riding and just getting to know my bike, so I'm going to take it easy at first.

Can we come?

Is this limited to just WW riders?

We have off road, and dualsport bikes. We also own Wees and can do all pavement or less technical (slow) on our wees (example: Kendall skyline or pikes peak rds).

From my point of view, this is a great way for anyone in the area who rides a dual sport to get to know others and get together for riding.

I'm with you on the less technical for the time being. Just getting to know my new bike at the moment.

Heck ya everyone can come!!

I realize no matter what day or date we pick, it may not work for some. Because of that, we can post what we discussed and plans made after the meeting.

Meeting: Thurdays (7/29) Mill Creek Brew Pub (11 S Palouse St) at 6:00. They have dinner, free peanuts, pop and beer, everything for everybody.

Thursdays work for me, except this coming Thursday might not.

Ft. Walla Walla Brew Pub? That's a new one to me. Where it it?

Sorry,

Meant to say Mill Creek Brew Pub. I fixed it in the original post. Maybe we should open a new brew pub called FT Walla Walla. Then we would have to start another thread.

Works for me, though I might not make it on the 29th due to a work commitment. I'll try.

Laht Neppur Brewpub in Waitsburg is opening up on Spokane Street. That might be worth a look once they're up and running.

I'm headed out this weekend on the V-Star for a motorcycle campout in Cashmere.

Excellent!

Put me down as a maybe. I will try to make it but I make no promises.

I cannot remember, Are minors allowed inside of Millcreek Brew Pub?

liv2rydktms - Nope, Pendleton people are not welcome!

I am certain all of us would greatly enjoy your company. The brewpub is a nice little establishment here in town just off of Main Street in downtown Walla Walla. I am certain you will enjoy it.

Any of you headed down to the Rally in Stevenson, Wa this coming 28th-31st? It's a dual sport ,maxi scooter, touring, and sport touring rally all in one place. I've gone the past 3 years and really enjoyed it. I ussually don't decide till the night before cause I'm self-annoyed and depends on what work is doing at the opportune moment. Some very beautiful riding down in the Gorge with great twisties on both sides of the Columbia River.
Great place for Smithee to try his new beemer

Heres a linky to the rallies:

Have a good time at the rally and taking lots of pics to share with the rest of us is required.
