There so good eating... Heck! All you need is a water source in those hills if lost and that cabin before your bearings brought you back to civilization....:)
Did you get that damn new bike yet??? Let's get it dirty.

I'm looking to ride for weeks on the cheap, but I can still afford beans, rice, and tortillas.
Gathering berries and hunting snakes cuts into ridin' time!!!!

Yep. I keep checking, keeps looking decent. 10-20% chance of rain out here means mist at most.
We're good to go Monday !!

Heah Apple! KTM in Gresham called this Thursday and said that my 990 R just arrived from across the Pond. "BOOYAKASHA!"

I'm having it fitted with Akrapovic's and some other gear before I pick it up. Now, here is the deal: I'm leaving for Hawaii @ the end of the month for two week's and won't be back til the third week in May. It is then I will take possession of the bike. Sucks...

Never the less.. Gresham is awaiting for the delivery of the Akra and said that it won't be in the shop until months end anyway.

Although, I do have a Honda 650L Decked out!! :)

... Thank you Squishy... Need some Sun mate!

Yes... I should be on the new bike when we finally meet in May. Have you and Apple Jam ever gone riding together with both your mates? He seems like FUN! "Hello Apple."

I will PM you when I am come back from Hawaii and obtain the Mamba. Would be interesting if my snake charming abilities would be of any relevance with this type of species...:) It not I'll kill it!

Where oh where did Apple go? Out on a ride? Skiing? Mowing the lawn? Did you go today rather than Monday?

Bikes are ready! So who else is thinking of riding tomorrow.... I think (with out looking) Apple said something about 9:30am?

What! You have to stay home and cut the grass? Or just out of town? We are jumping ship, the tree's can wait... We have room in the trailer for more bikes! Natalies bike does not like the highway so we are going to drive to the Deschutes River park and ride from there.

No I am home for a change. Mowing the lawn actually does need to be done but what I really was thinking about doing was figuring out the strangest exhaust leak IU have ever seen that I have on the 650l. What is the ride you all have planned for tomorrow ??

Went back and looked, this is what it said;

I was planning on that, if you were gonna ride.
9:30 - 10 ?? in TD? Depends on how many we gather in HR, and just how long that takes us.


Now we just need to find AJ, maybe he got tied up some where!
