That's just a small group that's posting lately.
I think the majority of the crew will be more dirt oriented
Mine's a big bike, but Punkin prefers dirt.
She likes it when I treat her rough.

Yep that was me. Could not take living in Lakeview any longer. Lot of dirt roads to ride but nothing else to do.

I don't remember if there's reception down in that Crooked River hole we're gonna call home this weekend, but if anybody's reading this.....we're running quite late. We're rolling through Warm Springs now, so we're still an hour + away.

Sorry, OrExPat, you'll have to fend for yourself for dinner.
I'll do my best to make it up to you with some ice cold whiskey, tho. We'll still cook dinner for ya, if'n ya wanna wait.

CU FFs soon

Glad some are reserving campsites... especial MortimerSickle. I'll be along to play before lunch tomorrow.

AJ, thanks for reminding me about the cold whiskey. Can't forget to pack that!. Got a big wheelbarrow of pitchy fir loaded in the truck for the fire circle. Hope there's room left in the back for the bike.

I went out to Millican today. I got to 4 corners at around 1 PM. Rode 45 miles of trails on the Husi. I might have spotted a couple of ADV guys at around 3:00 PM at the north end - I was on Trail 81, ADV guys were on Bear Creek Road. Anyway, I wanted to connect, but we were bikes passing in the dirt. It was also hard to leave the trails for the roads - too much fun!

Crooked River Riding

Had a great time riding, talking and riding more. Even got some photos.


interesting ways to carry a bike



smaller bikes



larger bikes. This one now has a "high fender".



medium bikes



Does this bike fit me?



Were to ride next?



Brought more wood.



Making firewood.


Most of the fingers remain.


Checking out the photos.


Rules



Getting ready for more riding.


Left Saturday afternoon to meet and greet out of town family members arriving for Easter. Even had time to stow the gear and mow the lawn.
