I'm gonna have to back out of this ride, it is the same weekend as the Vernonia Jamboree and we can't miss that.

I was just lookin' around for maybe something to entertain myself with and meet some local folks while out in the Northwet and came across this.

Not 100% sure yet, but I think I'm in. Nothing like meeting up with the locals to find good riding.

We will be trailering the Versys behind the Roadtrek and camping somewhere(yet to be determined) in the area at that time.

 Expect the heat to minimize the attendance but the ride is still on.
 Castle Rock forecast is for 89 F Sat. Not that hot. I will use the std mesh gear and hydro pack back pack with ice. May be break out the evap cooling vest.

 After hosting the ride for 18 yrs of the 20 I am giving it up to new blood, already have a new host for next year and will leave it to that person to announce.

If Photobucket hadn't gone full on extortion I would post a picture of the broken blister I created on the palm of my hand last night.  I did it with a floor scraper, for those who's minds went straight to the gutter.  :nananana:  It's bigger than a quarter, and it's going to keep me from riding for at least a few days. >:(  Enjoy the curves for me, because I won't be able to make it tomorrow.  I'll be there next year, though.  At least I better be.  Dan can fill you in on those details.

Just my luck on doing a check before leaving the ride, discovered a nail in the rear tire!  >:( >:(

Finished patching, was so close to attending! One of these years...   :motonoises:

Anyway, here's the culprit

And a six fiddy Versys.

Had a good time, hope all y'all met up again. I wound up with just short of 400 miles for the day, up to Randle and dropping down the east side of St Helens.

Departing for John Day today.

 Had a great ride with 6 riders on 6 bikes. The Food at the Little Crane restaurant in Vader was as good as ever.
 The traffic up the west side to Johnston Ridge view point of Mt St Helens was light as we left Vader just after 9 AM.
 The BC smoke in the air was hazy but still a decent volcano view.
 Steve J and I had the 'old man' senior pass so we had no admittance fee for the group.
 We stayed to view the short 15 min film of the pre and post views of the volcano.
 The parking lot went from partial to nearly full ( multi model DODGE group arrived)  as we exited so our timing was good as far as the crowd size.
 Traffic was light going down too. and as it is a tourist road the loud handle was restricted with limited passing of cages.
 Steve J split off before Castle Rock.
 Rest of us stopped off  for fuel and delicious burgers in Castle Rock. Yumm I had the Elk Burger and fries.
 Continued the afternoon ride with 4 riders and the pace quickened. Riding the back twisty roads west of I-5. Traffic was light.
 At 4:30 and after adding a few extra roads ( addicting, hard to stop, many more to ride that day) we came out at Grand Mound on old hwy 99 where two split off for Orygun and Steve and I heading north. I did not slab but took old 99 over I-5 and thru Yelm etc back home to Graham.
 Thanks to all for riding and I enjoyed the ride group very much. The heat was not too bad. Me using the heat shields below the tank the lone C10. One Versys and 4 C14's.
 I forgot my camera but Steve will post pics and utube links.
