Good excuse to visit the grand daughter

Might have to ride my newly restored R100S to Oregon in July and visit with the grandchild in Corvallis.

My wife and I are taking in the Rally on the way back from a trip to San Fran. There is about 9 or 10 of us coming from the same area, but not all on BMW's although most of us have Airheads and belong to the Airheads organization. Too far 2up for my R75.

YO, if you are coming through Spokane, let me know and we can meet up for the ride down and back. Get yourselves a reservation at Riverside State Park on line. Great close in camping on the river and not too spendy. Just an alternative for anyone coming from the north.

Camping on-site is included with the registration costs AFAIK

Be advised, it's not a sylvan paradise but at least it generally cools off here at night so even if you are out in the open it ain't that bad. Temps seldom go over 100 here and no humidity in summer as a rule.

Will the mountain passes between Aurora and Salem be open by then?

McMinnville is about 25 miles from the rally in the heart of Oregon's wine country and lots of pretty roads, good eats, and fine beer around here.

Looking forward to meeting folks!
Your town also has one of the best aviation museums anywhere - Spruce Goose and fine example of a B-17. Don't miss it!

I'm 98% there. I made it out for the Redmond and Spokane on my 81 RT. This time, it'll be on my new 89 GS. I love a chance to ride out West. It's that hot, humid middle part of the country I wish I could avoid. Last time I angled up to Duluth to cross over which put me on course for Beartooth Pass and Lolo. I thought I'd beaten the heat until I hit Idaho during an unseasonable heat wave. It should be fun.

I should be there. It'll be my first rally. Since I got introduced to all things via my uncle and he's a member of the Black Sheep group, I'll probably be around that area. Keep an eye out for a bike and guy that look like this.
