Damn it Jeff, I keep trying to keep theses voices in check for a few more months, or might find myself in Baja with Hell's..... and that might not go so well...

On the other hand I think I have resolve the conflict on the Hell's Canyon weekend!

Race to Dug Bar is on, this time I'll have a new rear tire on versus the dead ones I keep showing up with....Now, how do I keep S1 from passing me on the inside on a bike that's as wide as the trail?

So my current debate is "which bike"? I think the Ninja 250 would be more fun to get there and back, but the Super Sherpa would be more fun once there?

I'd be camping, and have figured out a small compact setup that has proven itself on the Ninja, and should be fine on the Sherpa.

Experienced folk want to offer recommendations?
Well you have plenty of time to change your mind back and forth and then see which bike the gear ends up on when you leave that morning.

See you there.

A newer tire on that pig would be a good idea. I've got one waiting in the garage for my piggy. Race on!

I still have the same tire on from WABDR/Hells' Canyon, Apple Jam's Cascade Discovery Route, Gifford Pinchot with ScottPDX, and The Apple Valley Rally, and it still has some life in it, not much but it has lasted almost 5000 miles this year!
The 908RR rocks!

I decided to eloquently bow out of any racing shenanigans especially on Dug Bar!
Zoomwalt road is my track! You guys can ply in the baby head rocks and the cliff's if you chose.....

Max, you were thinking the same thing as I was typing! It's fun going fast sometimes, but it's nice to smell the rose's sometimes....
Get off the fence brother, last year was a hoot!

See, toldja!


I figure 3 inside and a 4th out back, seating for 4 and room for all the kit.

Bet it gets 20 mpg that way too....

Maxacceleration has ridden with me which gave him plenty of time to smell the flowers.....





When he could see them through the fog.


Ok maybe that's a bit too slow for your taste but there is a happy medium.

Max, you don't have to by pass this event to keep the speed down. All you have to do is pay attention to what your right hand is doing and don't let the boys egg you into racing unless of course you are at the race track.

I hate to think of anyone not showing up for this because of the race talk. Going fast isn't what this event is about although there are a few people that enjoy a spirited pace. There are plenty of folks that enjoy mellow riding and seeing what the area has to offer.

Mrs1911fan and I are hitting Dug Bar this year. Slowly. I'm a GPS tard so we'll have to trail along other slowpokes who have a GPS.
Max, come ride with us turtles! We stop, admire the view, take flower pics, and ride slow enough to rubberneck. We can drag race FS roads around Wenatchee anytime.

Totally agree. I'd rather hear what the bluebirds out at Hat Point have to say then pass any of you FF's on a dirt road.

Besides, passed all 'ya all before anyways.
