Let's do it!!

How about this?  We meet for breakfast at Charlie's Cafe in Enumclaw, and then head up 410 to 123 over Cayuse Pass and down to U.S. 12, go over White Pass and down through Yakima, then down 97 to Goldendale where we'll go west on WA 142 and down the Klickitat canyon to Lyle where we can go west to White Salmon and then south on OR 35 to US 26, which will take us to Madras to pick up US 97.  The western diversion will get us up in elevation and hopefully cooler air.  It also avoids a big fire on US 197.

Charlie

There's a big fire just south of White Pass, so it looks like Chinook Pass and 410 down to Natches is the way to go.  See you guys Friday morning.
Later,

On the way down, TimR and I rode together.  Good road conditions and no traffic on our route.


TimR exited from eastern Oregon curve



and he can barely be seen on this road

Looks like fun.
Someday, I'll get to ride that area.

Ride safe, Ted

Outstanding ride even though I found a ditch on my way there and had to steal a shift lever and use duct tape and bungee cords to finish it,  it was well worth it.
That being said I am ok with those who have pictures of my carnage posting them. You were all great at lifting my spirits and I thank you all, there is truly no better group to be riding with :beerchug:
BTW the duct tape is already gone the repairs are still temporary but the damage the damage is a lot more conspicuous, I just wish I could have found the two mirror covers.  :great:
We stopped at the site of the accident and I walked it through. The bad thing is the point where my foot and peg touched down and I panicked I already had that corner locked, all I would have had to do is stay focused on the road I had already  made it through the Apex and believe I was already starting to roll back on the throttle when everything went wrong, if I had just kept my focus on the exit point and not looked at the edge of the road. :-[

I am ok Ted, when the bike high-sided in the ditch I tucked and roll then somehow landed on my feet facing the bike. I had dirt and leaves down my neck and pants as well as dirt all over my back and butt, however not a mark on my helmet. As for the bike the left bag was ripped off, left mirror was ripped off, the center fairing is broken, left mid fairing is broken, right lower fairing broken, left dash cover broken the aluminum stay that mounts both mirrors is broken and the right mirror is missing its cover. There are deep scratches in both bags, the luggage rack, the front fender and headlights. Oh and my new Copper Dawg windscreen was wasted.
The good side I am ok and there is nothing on the bike i can't fix, all the parts have been ordered with exception of the broken left bag the headlight assembly, a new Copper Dawg and paint. It will be about 2 grand when all is said and done but it is what it is. :-[
With the help of Charlie and Andy a borrowed shifter from Darrell Anderson and the moral support of everyone at the rally I was able to complete the ride and have a great time doing it.

Sorry to hear the news but glad you're ok Grant!!! As always at least you're walking and in one piece. Bike and parts can be replaced but not the body.

Wow, the pics and reports sounds like a fun awesome time! I love the Bend/Sister area and was hoping to make it but we had scheduled another event way before this LavaRun event came out. Hopefully I'll be in attendance next year!!

 Grant,

 Sorry to hear about the bike damage. Good to hear you mention what you 'should have done' to complete the turn and corner.
  A tough learning experience but most important you walked away.
 Give yourself some credit.

Think of it this way Grant, one door closes and another opens, only question to ask now is what color should you paint it!
