Lets do a ride on Saturday

A couple of guys/gals are coming up from Oregon and we are going to meet up at Ridewest in Seattle around 10am. They have a little business to attend to. After that It would be nice to go over the North cascades hwy and head south in Eastern Washington and make a loop back somewhere applicable to where you live. Any one interested in coming along?

While you are at Ride West you can go downstairs and *slap* Ali into shape for me.
You could also buy that GT!

Sorry to say that I will be outta town this weekend. Y'all have a wonderful ride.
Wish that I could join you.

Best,

Sorry you all can't make it, I think Ken has his eyes on that GT! I will check on Ali for you though. Small change to original plan.... A few things came about for some of the Oregon tribe, So it looks like Ken coming up solo so far and meeting at 11am at Ridewest. Then heading for a shorter undetermined ride from there. Most likely the coast or Mount Rainier.

Things Got Complicated

Sorry to make a fun day-long ride a "shorter" one. I forgot that Pauline has an appointment Saturday morning. We will be heading to Western BMW after that appointment to pick up some parts that I ordered . I'm hoping that Pauline will approve, afterall they were for her birthday last week.

We will be heading back north in the early afternoon and perhaps we can meet up on your southern loop. Look for a voicemail now-and-again.

Brian,

I'm not gonna make it today after all, sorry. Work exploded yesterday and I stayed straight through until about 6:30 this morning. I'm gonna sleep for a bit then head out in the afternoon. Maybe down toward Corvallis for da Vinci Days.

__________
Ernie,

Give me a call in the afternoon and maybe we can hook up.

Coni,

What's the name of your buddy at Ride West that helped us get Ali's swingarm sorted out? I need to talk clutches.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I guess I don't need to be tempted by that GT now. I think I shall go to Mount Saint Helens.

Enjoy the ride, Brian, and I'll take a rain check. Uh, maybe I'd better rephrase that?

Sorry for the weekend ride plans going into the dumpster. The good part is my present for Pauline came in and we installed it on the bike; we got a new windshield. We got a Vstream by Ztechnik. Being that the bike is really Pauline's ( ) I thought it was appropriate to buy her the Vstream for her birthday. She loves it! and I like it a lot too.

The day was long and we got in a checkpoint in Mehamma, OR. Not a bad lunch for the $$$.

We found some roads down the valley that are fun and twisty. I thought I had been on all those roads, but we found 6 new roads with a total of 160 miles that our LT has never been on before. We will visit them again.

Next time we make a plan it will stick.

I'm in.

And Brian, sorry for bailing also. I did get a short ride in this afternoon, but would've enjoyed your company.

OUtlaws in the way...

Brian,
Keep the invites coming. I really need another ride West very soon. The outlaws (inlaws) were in town and I was strapped to the house helping the wife entertain. Would love to come out your way and meet more folks from that side of the mountains.
