Most Helpful Folks

I must offer a huge "Thank You" to all you good folks who helped me and my new rookie riding friend during this trip, especially the rider in silver below. He made sure we got back safely after getting a little disoriented (not lost!) and provided a most patient and appreciated book-end for many miles. Thanks Got2Moto!






He also had what was needed for flat repair and stuck around until it was rolling again. Hope that fix held for ya.

Thank you Steve Lavigne for pushing me up that road. A great riding experience!
My little beemer 650 (wink) scoots along.

Mid way break right before Steve toasts his clutch.
Many good miles after that. Sorry your clutch went Steve.
This was definitely a highlight for me. So much fun! You ride that 800, oops I mean f650gs well.

I guess the nut that holds the output side of the clutch hub got loose and opened up the gap. Tightening that nut in and of itself might have fixed that clutch on the spot. I guess I should have looked past the toasted clutch plate.

But you got to demonstrate the timeless utility of that old standby repair medium, bailing wire.

Steve, nobody should ever have to use their real name on the ADV forumn for lack of a well earned handle. From now on let it be known, the inmate formerly known as Steve Lavigne shall be known to his friends as .................

Well, I had a good time, a very good time.

I spent two days trying to keep up with Ernie The Swift (AKA Maxacceleration.) Two great rides.

Friday, I attended s1marks combination Fuel Range Test and Tire Repair Seminar. Not only a good ride, but educational as well.

I think Mark wanted to make sure I got to make use of the lessons, because the Sunday he and pigpen made me grind the tread off, and poke holes in, my formerly-decent-looking Scorp. Great fun.





I see other people have already posted pics of mostly everything I shot, with the possible exception of Steve Lavigne's trailside clutch repair. So, here is what I have, in case anyone hasn't seen enough dusty ADVers. http://kensan.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Trips/Hells-Canyon-2012/23640390_HPMqr9#!i=1913086969&k=Q6bfcZK

There is a long tradition of people getting new screen names at the Hells Canyon Rally. I can think of three people that got new names here.

You know, some days have more adventure than you'd really like. This is the view looking the other direction from Ernie's Friday shot


I really should have taken a picture of the snake we shared the shade with.

A sincere thank you to everyone who helped me out of a tough spot.

Of course, after replacing the battery Saturday morning at the Honda shop (great folks, BTW, and did you know they build custom snowmobiles?) I had to go for a test ride.


No surprise, but I did get passed


And no, I didn't need a pickup truck to get here


or here

See, that's really me out there on the way to Troy

Of course this part did cause some trepidation


but I did eventually get here


and here


but you know, I think these folks could have passed me too


and I'm not sure, but I think that old wagon did too


Never let it be said that ADV riders aren't up for learning new skills


All in all, it was a really great ride and had me in my happy place all day
