So what number have you guys called to talk to Ashley, or anyone? I have tried all day the number for front desk on the website, as well as the 877 number, and I get no answer or a useless business account person. Sounds like I may drag a few family with me.


I called 1-800-452-4899 and spoke to Frankie. He told me Ashley wasn't there at the moment. He looked up her previous recent bookings for COG to find out how she entered the discount in their system. He said he did the same rate for me as she did for the others. The booking receipt they emailed me shows (541) 575-1462 as a phone number. I suppose you could try that number too.
August 30th is $97.75 + $9.58 tax
August 31st is $106.25 + $10.41 tax
Extra day - Sept 1st is $97.75 + $9.58 tax. The average daily rate is quoted as $100.58 (not including taxes).


Cheers


Jes

I booked a room with two double beds at the John Day Motel (good reviews) hoping my son would be able to attend, it looks like he may have to work that weekend, I'll know for sure tomorrow. If he works I'll look for a roomie, the room rate is $84 per night, so roomie rate $42 a night. I'll update tomorrow eve.
The Ribbon ride is some of the best riding in Oregon, and as others have said pretty light traffic for a holiday weekend, and the Sumpter swap meet is a fun stopover too.
Sadly won't be the same without fainting Charlie along, but we'll suffer through  :'(. This ride has always been a blast, even the year I got heatstroke!

UPDATE Turns out My son Raymond will be able to make the run again this year (he loved it last year) so the extra bed won't be available. Sorry.

Not a problem.  It does help to have a head count, so now we know there is another person.  The more the merrier. :beerchug:

So with the one week countdown in place I did the commitment shakedown on my potential sidekicks. +1 for sure is my nephew Josh on his brand new Gixxer 1K.

Another guest is still at a strong maybe, needs to get his BMW roadworthy and find accommodations for a dog. I give him a 50/50 chance of showing.

Finally my son who just started a new job in Bend and needs to get his neglected ZX-10 sorted, is a weak maybe. Could show for a night or two, but only a 30% chance of that. (Adulating is hard and inconvenient at times.)

If I need to formally register 1 as a guest just tell me, or put me down for +1.75.

All is good.  I, myself, have one guest not registered.   We will have a final head count when every one shows up.  We do have one dog coming. Not sure if we should count his head or not.

I hear you count dog tails to be official. I wish I could bring my Ginger along but I don't think she would enjoy 4 days of being tossed side to side in the heat.

Yep, makes it toasty for the ATT GATTers, or they just start early, pick a route that gets them back to pool-side by say 1 or 2 PM and the consumption of cooling adult beverages commences. Repeat.

That was a great ride, really nice folks and the roads and scenery were outstanding. 865 twisty miles in 3 days, I need a new set of tires now.

I would have loved to have joined you all. And I really appreciate the phone call more than you guys and gals will ever know. For those than may not know Dale called me to find out if I was still kicking or what. Yeah still here but staying close to home. I went to the Bun Cooler against the advice of my Doc but I'm hard headed any ways. I've been poked, stabbed, jabbed and bruised about everyway known to man kind for a little blood. It seems my veins see a needle and run the other way. My fun meter is pegged and they still can't tell me what's wrong. 

As I talked with Dale, we agreed he would tell Bob Rainey he made me mad and I wasn't coming back. I thought it would be fun for a little while but it got ruined when Bob had to say hi. This is sorts stuff is what makes this group what it is. A big family.


Speaking of if you remember John Ailtser who was with the guy on the Bergman and rode the Burgundy C10. John goes under the knife tomorrow for prostrate cancer. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Tim

Missed you Tim, and will keep John in our thoughts. Heavy Rotacion', it was great getting to ride with you and Dak the Magnificent Breaker (sp), a good day and even my ride home a day early was well spent. Keep healing up.

Some pics.

I didn't know what "Ride the Ribbon" meant till I got there.  From what I understand, the "ribbon" isn't just riding in the mountains there, but to ride the roads along the John Day "River".  There's a North fork, a Middle fork and a South fork.  I said "river" because it looks like more of a creek to me, but it did make for some interesting and fun rivers.








I'm always fascinated by the old barns and houses.  In one ride, I saw what at one time was a nice house with the other buildings...derelict.  Windows gone.  But still, I wonder....what stories those old abandoned buildings would tell if they could?  The dreams of the people who built them.  The laughter of the children.  The hopes of the families as they poured their sweat out in making a life out there.



This is a church from the town of Fox.  It stands next to a junkyard.  Almost all the stores are abandoned. 




The area fascinates me with the rock formations.









The roads in this area are full of twists, turns...and surprises.  Yes, that is a Conestoga wagon.



Even if there isn't a "river" to follow, the road has twists and turns to delight any motorcyclists.




As Nancy and I rode out on Monday morning, the sun was coming up and made for some interesting effects.















All the while I was taking this beautiful scenery in and enjoying the curves, I was thinking of how this is available to anyone coming to the National rally next year.
