Any feedback from those that attended the clinic at Westside this past weekend? I attended the intro back in August but couldn't go to the clinic.

I know the guy...he's a real nice person with a hell of a big heart....

Think his name is Asshole!!!

It was nice to meet you today!! Maybe next time we can meet up on two wheels each????
And yes, we did just move back here....from the wetside. Had just left Mom and Dad's...that was the wife in the cage @ the bridge. (got tired of waiting for her to take an opening....so I made one!!!)

...and thank you for the compliments!! (I can't take all the credit...see my sig line)


(ps....if I had seen the FYYFF sticker before I waved with two fingers, it would have been just one!!! )

Hello Smedley!

Nice to meet you. Too bad it was in traffic. I live in Gleneden. Where are you located? Every Sat. morning at 9 a.m. the local BWM club has coffee at Starbucks. The one next to Quiznos in Wandermere shopping center. Why don't you and the Missus ride up and say hello? Great group of folks, even let those KTMers show up.

It's been too long since we've gotten together. I'm sure Fredneck's misses us and a sirlion salad sure sounds good. Friday early evening, Saturday afternoon - Anyone want to ride and end at Fredneck's Sat? (No, I'm not leading)

Thoughts?

Couldn't have been a more perfect day for riding. Nice, cool morning and once afternoon came around it was probably in the mid to high 70s. Can't wait to do Into to Adventure!

By the way I am Landon and I live in Spokane. I grew up on old 2 strokes (DS80, CR80, KX100, CR500) and now my biggest focus is my F800GS. I would like to get involved with local riding events (even if they are in places that aren't so local). My main goal is to get my GS dirty!

Called today and Tobaggan Ridge just opened. 534 to the Rock Garden is still closed. Now if the weather gods will just make up their minds on just how much rain I'll see on Saturday

I'm sure it's going going to be like it was last Sunday. That was a great day!

I heard Rawhide had the lowest number of attendees at the Spokane clinic. The 32 degrees in the morning could have had something to do with that. While the vedors may have wanted more, I was happy with the size of the class

On the other side of 395....Rivilla.

If we show up, how far do we have to park away from you Bemmers so as not to embarrass y'all???

J/Kidd'n....will have to see if I can get Mrs. Smed moving that early.



Uh, Ladybug, for someone that has just transfered back to this side....where is Frednecks please??? I will try to keep an eye on the thread and see the day and time....would enjoy meeting some of you folks!!!

It was a cold morning but it couldn't have been a more perfect temperature throughout the rest of the day. You know how offroad riding is... You stay plenty warm no matter what. It helps that I only live about 15 minutes away from Westside Motorsports and many of the others were coming from Idaho and the Tri Cities.

Frednecks, it a bar down in Rockford. They have very good food. It's on the left as you are going into town from Spokane.

There have been some new people posting that we need to meet so getting together is needed. Kootenai Rider suggested Sat. the 20th when MediumDriver will be in the area. Perhaps KR will lead a dirty ride

Keep watching this thread and we'll get a plan going.

Live2Ride - good to see a post from you. I understand the Cake Baker is headed to meet your dad for a ride into Mexico. I hope Cee Bee takes it easier on your dad this time than he did when they did the TAT together.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend.

19 more days and you will see more posting. Yeah, Dad just crossed over the barbed wire on his way to meet CB, I believe they are going to Copper Canyon.

Just noticed this was signed into Brads account.
