Pretty grim, isn't it? I had to put a cover on my bike so I couldn't see her disdainful looks as I go by!

Mike sitting on my porch might work, but I might just put him to work around here...

Mel is on to something. Rock Dodger, just amend the "To Do List":

1) Windy Ridge

2) Wallowas/Rattlesnake/Dooley Mountain Weekend

3) Oakridge to Steamboat, The Hard Way

4) Dayville Pie Run

See, isn't that better?

#1 sounds like a winner. I was just thinking about doing that one.

The rest of them I don't know/haven't ridden. I don't eat pie, do they have kale drinks?

Ok boys (and any gals that might be lurking out there)....

I'm headed up that way for coffee on the 23rd. You don't have to go, but this is where I'll be riding that day (bringing one of the locals from down here with me and showing her as many fantabulous roads I can squeeze into a day).

"...great minds think alike."

We were just talking about this at SMC today. Probably have SMC at Mugs Coffee in Bingen and head up to Windy Ridge behind a never-ending line of motor homes with Iowa license plates. Lunch in Randle and back down Wind River Highway.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Man, those...those..."moguls" on FSR 25 were brutal! I went airborne on one or two that were lurking in the shade. That road is falling apart!

You too?

We went camping last weekend and the lead rider hit a good dip and ended up sailing into the oncoming lane: almost "endoed".
