They both look like the sun is coming and warm weather is on it's way for next week. Just save some of the puddles we need something to ride thru like holligans. Water crossing may the the theme this year Eh?

Wait, next week? I thought y'all were coming this week. In that case I CAN make it for some rides.

I missed reading the date at the start of this thread and thought spring break was this week for some reason.
Honestly, even though I've been riding a lot lately, I've been super busy trying to get my business off the ground.
I forget what day of the week it is sometimes. No such thing as weekends anymore! But I grab a break whenever I can.

"Chance of Rain" in the middle of Oregon means an awesome, but cloudy day


Quote:
11 Miles S Prineville OR

Thursday: A chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 52.
Friday: A chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 51.
Saturday: A chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 46.

And above freezing forecasts for every night !!

Loooooking Perti Goot, Mon....

Spring brake

Gentlemen,
oops, that's a stretch!
Weather looks good ! Last time Feb. I rode 4-corners the was an 80% chance of snow and rain for both days! It snowed for about an hour, the other 47hrs were perfect, just enough to knock thee dust down for a few minutes! It can be really good on the other side of the Cascades, WHY do we live here, on this side!
Just finished the trailer to haul asrvivor and I over there!
F*&% w/ one of us you F*&% with the whole trailer park!
Uploading to smugmug pic's later!
Can't wait to ride!

Yes, can't wait to ride. I'll be riding over Santiam Pass Thursday.
If it snows lots Sunday, I may bum a ride in your new trailer to get me back over to the wet side... to avoid the crashed highway blues.

Frank isn't going to have his truck/camper done by then... he may opt to stay home? What say you Frank?

I just rode about 400 miles around here between Christmas Valley and Mitchell this weekend and the dirt is great. Snow hadn't been a problem and you can ride around most of the mud.

Elephant Ears

Saw the elephant ears in post 91 that Mr Dual Sport had on his bike. Have been thinking about something home made, and had tried before. These were OK, but were zip-tied on and didn't stay in place too well.


Then came up with these yesterday. Just used the brush hand guard screws to attach the plastic. This is the inside view.


This is a close up on the front side.


and another front side view.

Took the bike for a quick trip to Franks house for a cup or two of coffee. They worked pretty well, but the heavy cross winds wanted to help counter-steer the bike on the back farm roads. The ears did keep my gloves mostly dry, so my hands stayed warm and dry inside the Gore-tex.

On the way home, it was pouring rain so decided to take I-5 to shorten the ride time. They worked fine at interstate highway speeds and kept the hands dry. They look homebuilt/KLR but will work great to keep my hands warm next weekend for the four day Crooked River ride in the winter high desert.

OK
Im in. Spent the weekend flushing the anti freeze out of the camp trailer. I thought about tenting it but memories of being caught out in the desert, after dark, with below freezing temps kept flashing thru my mind. I don't ever want to be that cold again...
Since I'll be trucking my bike over, let me know if you need something hauled. I might leave Thursday afternoon but more likely early Friday morning.

Petrolburner,

Im wondering if the firewood areas around china hat are snowed in or should I bring the chain saws? Last time I rode around the east side of pine Mt I saw the BLM had dropped copious amounts of juniper trees. Are any of these still accessible?

Of course I could just raid my brothers pile in Tumalo on my way thru

This ^^^^^^ is what I'm talkin' about !!

I pre-packed all my gear today.
It looks like I'm gonna have to do without the 2-burner Coleman stove to get the rest of the creature-comforts in my setup.

Somebody better bring a full-size skillet for the "chef"
