As they say use "the right tool for the job"! You just need more tools! Tell your wife I said you need a couple new tools!

Spoken like a true motorcycle guy

Is she getting a hip replaced or something?
Or are you talking front suspension?

Good Luck Mississickle

Where "IN" becomes a "maybe"...

Well, we might be out for this weekend, or might show up after all - you'll know when you see the whites of the plaster on my wife's arm!! Seems that her wrist goes around corners now...







The story is so ironic it's almost funny... She was actually in her 2nd day of Team Oregon training when she low-sided a TW200 at walking speed and landed all wrong. Snapped the radius and the ulna right where arm becomes wrist. Not compound, but all twisted and dis-located. Surgery is set for 10:00am tomorrow to install two stainless plates and about a half-dozen screws.

Anyway, if we make it it'll be on 4 wheels, not 2

Later,

I'm hosting a small 10-20 person ADV ride/BBQ/campfire/campover-in-the-yard gig
at my house near Parkdale on the October Weekend of the 8th & 9th.

I'm plotting a series of rides from Pavement, to Dual Sport, to Dirtbike (OHV Pass required, if it rains good and they open it back up).
Several self-guided GPS tracks and maps and one good DS ride guided by me (on 990).
Lemme know if you want a paper map with route hand-written, and I'll get one ahead of time @ the Forest Service for $5

Plenty of tent space (5 acres) (even indoors in Garage and storage if it rains)

All Food for breakfast & coffee, lunch, and BBQ dinner !! will be handled by my wife and I,
with small donations accepted only just to cover our food costs,
so nobody has to haul extra food and stove stuff.

Come on up !! . Anytime Saturday, or even Friday evening.
PM me for addy & phone #s

- Jeff

Skip bringing tents if you don't mind others' snoring in the common indoor space.
Or bring a tent to have your own space, under the stars or under a big fir tree.
