I rode today, was running some errands and decided to ride out to long lake dam for no other reason than to open it up a bit. Took a wasp to the throat right between the bottom of my helmet and top of my jacket. Still not sure how it made it over my windshield, or survived the high speed impact. It then made its way down my shirt and nailed me 3-4 more times on my chest and stomach before I could kill it!

I did a hotel lounge gig in Merritt back in my musician days. I hope you are having a better time than I did.

I had a great Down Hill Mtn Biking Sess up at Schweitzer yesterday. 6 runs, probably just as many beers. Got a flat on my 2nd run on a trail called, of all things... "Pinch Flat"

After fixing that redeemed myself 3 more times on Pinch Flat and once on Bear Grass. I think I was the last person on the lift at about 4:55pm...

Took one digger over the bars on run #4. Thankfully those rocks stopped me. Shoulder is a little raw today. Probably should have been wearing my compression suit.

That is a great ride along the Columbia River/Lake Roosevelt, I moved near the lake as a wee lad in 1967. Great views, many places to pull off and stretch the legs.

With the many small camp grounds between Fort Spokane and Northport. You should not have a problem finding a camping spot until Labor Day weekend. Few are reporting any bear problems.

If you see a faded red/Aztec pink? KLR in the Kettle Falls area that could be me. Enjoy.

Ride safe, change the gas often.

I think it started out as "Aztec red" and is now an "Aztec pink" KLR, not a pink Aztec! Nice reference though.

Lol... You're probably right. Too bad. You just don't see many of the venerable Pontiac Aztec's out there any more. That I thought this one was pink only added to the intrigue. Guess I've been watching way too much Breaking Bad lately.

I have never seen it. I guess I'll need to queue up the entire series on Netflix so I too will "get it".
