Can't wait.

thanks for the help.
I'll have them organized for you just before the end of this month.
I'll send them to Questor also.

This is a big crew, we'll need at least three groups with the tracks.

We are camping stealth, no showers, no frills, and no $, except for gas/food/booze.

We'll also be riding a portion of the NW famous original 1854 "Barlow Road" (google it, if you don't know)


The "IN" list........

1) Apple Jam
2) Grinns
3) CJRacer
4) mdfehrmann
5) Ladukebob
6) Cyclops Motorsports
7) Konflict Motorsports
8) hvman
9) cyborg
10) CharlieFox
11) Nut Clutch
12) moto-treks
13) idc22
14) jalal
15) Sapling
16) offworlder
17) Questor

I'll PM you all with directions/address a couple of weeks before.
(let me know if I got syntax wrong on your screen names, so PMs will be easy for me)

I think this large group (and more!) will be manageable enough, I know my route well,
and will have tried & true actual GPS (GPX/Garmin) tracks.
I think we'll likely split into at least two groups (maybe 3), with a leader for each,
...to keep the caravan (bikavan?) moving more efficiently.


We'll get to the KTM Rally Thursday Evening when Registration starts.
I'll have a VERY close-by forest dispersed campspot picked out,
...so we can get back there early-ish Friday morning


Oh yeah.....

WetFest is the weekend before, and several of us plan to leave from Wenatchee on Sunday.
We'll take portions of the WABDR down to Hood River,
then get to my place early Tuesday evening for a relaxing BBQ and a campfire.
...Then We'll leave Wednesday morning for the dirty two-day trip to Bend
I registered today, it's official. Apple Jam, Is there any more room in this bikivan from Hood River for a far eastern guy?

We'll let groups sort out speed/experience-wise

Sounds Great. As long as we have tracks I'm more than happy to help split into smaller groups to help things move smoother/easier.

I don't know the area, but I'm pretty good at following a GPS track and willing to help any riders that don't have a GPS or are uncomfortable following it on there own.

See you all soon.

(as in.... "muck, wanna go")

Ya lol AJ, an itty bitty 690.
Hopefully I'll have it repaired in time. :-/

The owner of Cascade Motorsports did offer me an invite. (where I bought the bike)

Ride from Scuderia

Hey all,

I'm going to be taking a group up leaving Wednesday morning from Scuderia West in SF. Donnie said he'd throw some coffee and donuts our way

Plan is to get as far as Burney, CA, on Wednesday. That's just north of Lassen NP. Head up through Napa, past Clearlake, east towards Chico, then into the mountains.
There is hotel and camping options in Burney.

Second day we'd head into OR, and hopefully find some good dirt roads to ride on our way to Bend.

Return trip is open, I'll probably leave in time to get to Yreaka, then finish the trip on Monday.

If you're interested, let me know, and I'll put a mailing list together.

Cheers,

Luca
