I have a 650 X Challenge and am interested in doing some light off-roading anywhere this side of the Cascades. Mucky single track doesn't interest me at this point. My skills are not up to par as I'm new to the sport and I do NOT expect anyone to hold my hand. I expect to put in the effort and time to learn how to do it safely and have a good time.
It would be cool to meet some folks that are into this and learn from them as well as get to know more folks around town. We are so fortunate to live in such a cool place.
What time on Tuesday and Thursdays do the crowds usually end up meeting?
Thank you,
Brad
Sounds great man! Not many guys can say their wife talked them into getting a 650 XChallenge :). Tons of great forest roads around that are perfect for that bike. Some good ones out east but much more fun once the snow starts to melt again. You may find that you really like it... I love to mountain bike and hike around, but a dual sport really opens up the doors as far as the shear amount of country you can see.

I usually try to hit the Local's nights earlier rather than later. If it's not snowing you'll see my 450 EXC parked close by. Other than a few hard core types most of the group is focused on skiing right now but that will start to change :)

3rd Thursday @ Summit

Hey Gang, it's that time again! Third Thursday meet up at the Summit! 6-ish
We thought we were going to be out of town, but we had a change of plans, so we can go!
Anyone else?? Let's try to fill more than one table this time!

I would love to try to join you all.

Still lot's of snow in my driveway.



But, I managed to find a way around it for a short ride yesterday.



Looking forward to meeting you folks. Cheers

Howdy Neighbor!

Hello Svenski!
We would love to meet you! Please join us.
By the way, it looks like we might be neighbors. We are also in the Sunriver area.

Thursday

Hello all! My name is Brad and if it's ok, it would be great to meet some of folks as I'm new to this sport and would like to meet some folks in Bend. Is it cool if I show up at Summit about 6 on Thursday? If it is, for whom would I look? Or should I say for what should I look?
Cheers!
Brad

Everyone's Welcome!

Hello Brad

It's totally cool if you come to the meet up! We look forward to meeting you!

We are usually at the front tables near the window. Just make an immediate right, when you walk in the door. We're a little harder to recognize in the winter, without all our gear on. Maybe I'll bring a helmet, and set it on the table.

Hey Brad,

If you want us to be on the look-out for you at the Summit tonight, just bring a little white flag, indicating that you surrender to the ridiculously awesome madness that is motorcycling. We'll be on the look-out for ya.

Kim

BTW - it was my idea to get Tony and me into riding, too. Make sure your wife comes - we need to get her involved. Stacie and I can take her out and get her dirty.

See Y'all Tonight!

The guys will sure have fun with that one!

We will bring a helmet to set on the table tonight, so there will be no doubt who we are.

Cool2 Great time was had by All.

Hey, it was great to see old friends and to meet a few new ones! I best get my bike buttoned back up soon.

Nice to meet Brad and Mike, next time I'll sit at the other end of the table and meet a few of the rest of you.

Yep. It was a great time last night - good to see James and Steve after a winter's absence. As for the four newbies to the group - welcome! And, Billy. What can I say?
