Just an afternoon ride. I was so taken by the view and the riding on the nakid bike i forgot to push the button. I remembered to twist the throttle though. Got to wait for a 12gs at the bottom. Good times.

May be out of touch for a day or two. No service for about 30 miles, perfect.
Camped at Powell cg for a couple days. Will explore and report when i can.

Dam , I didn't think you would actually post that video.

Yes , you got to "wait " for a GS, I am a very considerate host. Mostly I kept thinking about the deputy who lives in Waha Glen and what he would say if he found me doing 110 , really officer I was just trying to catch up to my friend on a 250 dirt bike. I'm 19 and 0 since 1990 , just had a lot of nice visits with a lot of nice officers and 110 ( what I would have had to do to catch the 250) on a 50 mph would ruin my record. 90 I think I could talk my way out of .

Having you there was a great break from having the whole basement torn apart in the plumbing remodel. Worst is over now!

I have been telling everyone about your hot bike in a different thread.

Yeehaw!

Thrilled to give you a hug at HC, will be checking in regularly in between packing in Oregon and unpacking in Idaho.

Don't forget if your in town for gas, public libraries have computers you may be able to access computers there, we have in the past!

Looks like your enjoying your long awaited adventure!

There I was several years ago living in Minnesota and dreaming of big adventures. I found your site and really got excited. Now here I am living in the Pacific Northwest loving the adventures. Now I dream of enough time to explore all the places that are nearby and not so near. Congrats on your retirement. Look forward to reading about your adventures.

I'm lovin' how you have set up your bike and trailer to work for you.

I'm sure I don't have to tell you how nice this trip is going to be for you since you can
be out for so long and not have to worry about making time---or destinations.

You've got a real good head on your shoulders and I can feel your excitement.

Me and Dingweeds will be up that way I bet later this year----we've been talking what we'll do next and
The PNW (Pacific Northwest) gets the nod again.
We'll be on itty bitty girls bikes.
Me and Dingweeds both have right at 35,000 miles on our WR's-----and they run like new.

I envy all you guys living up there.

I'll be hanging on every word of where you go----I have lot's of options already---but would be nice to
have some more.

BigDog

Bike maintenance day. Battery was weak so i replaced it while i can. Changed the oil and filter and Lubed the chain and verified tension. Safety wired the hitchpin on the trailer and did laundry.
staying at my brothers in Hamilton watching the storm roll in over the mountains. Life is good.

Don't forget to grease those muffler bearings and adjust the Fetzer valve



Happy travels!
