Central Oregon Meet-ups

Anyone interested? I'm new enough here to be uninformed as to whether a meet-up thread for this area has been tried before. I'm sure I'll find out soon enough.

Anyway, I'm feeling just a little bad about lurking around the Eugene meet-up site, and think it might be nice to have one for the dry-side.

Big Spag and I have a lot of riding to make up for this year and would really like to meet more inmates, anyway.

So...here it goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

We have a Wednesday night meet-up every week at Sanden's Motorsports (formerly Tom's World of Wheels) at 2548 NE 2nd St. in Bend. It's not an ADV exclusive thing, just a half-dozen to dozen of us folks getting together for beer, pizza, and bench racing. All types welcome - street, dirt, snow, racers, dual sport, whatever... It usually runs from ~5:00pm to whenever the last ones leaves.

Feel free to drop by for a beer! If you don't know Chris, just tell him Mike Lake sent you .

Have to admit it is a guilty pleasure.

I have been looking around to and have not seen one for the dry side ever.

I have been lurking around the Portland area one just because it is the area I grow up in and it is interesting to see some of the old terrain.

Slightly north

There are several of us in Madras who would welcome the chance to get together!

I'm thinking that a regular get-to-gether would be nice, as well as more opportunities to get together for riding. I know we're all really busy at night. The only nights Big Spag and I have totally free are Mondays and Fridays.

If a regular night doesn't work, maybe we could just post up if we're going out and see who shows up. That might work for socializing and riding. I guess we'll find out as we go!

Good idea. Pick a time and place and see who shows. Have done this on other forums and it takes a while to gather momentum. Might try a place that is conversation friendly from a background noise perspective. Maybe move it around a little? Meet in the middle, like Redmond? Hang out an ADV flag so people know where to hang out? Lot's of input for your idea, eh?
Anyway, in...

Get together

We would be game for a Friday evening in Redmond. Donell works in Bend so a 6pm in Redmond would work real well for us.

Friday night works for me. Did you mean tomorrow? If so, I'm IN. We're out of town next Friday.

If it's tomorrow, it will just be me as Tony will be working late. I don't hang out in Redmond much, so if you know of a place, please put it out there. The only two I can think of are Baldy's and the 7th Street Pub. I've never been to the pub, so I count vouch for it, though.

7th Street is good beer and food but loud. My wife and I were just talking that Red Dog Depot might be an option. It's on the south end of Redmond just east off the Yew Street exit (head for the airport) and left (North) on 21st Place right before the rail road tracks. I've been there a number of times and it has decent food, beer, and has not been too noisy for conversation.

Works for us! In fact we live about a mile away and decided to do a recon and are there right now.

Red Dog, it is

See you at 6 pm. I know right where it's at. Our business is just a couple of miles down the road. If it's nice, I'll be on the Dakar. Teenager would like to have the car!

And, we're off and running!
