IBR Talk in Ridgefield, WA on Sunday, July 18th

I'm going to be up in the Portland/Vancouver area next weekend and since several folks have been bugging me to tell of my IBR experiences, I though I'd take this opportunity to oblige y'all.

Denny & Michele have kindly offered their place just north of Vancouver, which has lots of bike parking and seating for up to 24 of your closest friends.

We'll be holding this grand fête on Sunday, July 18th. The festivities will get started around 5:00 pm and should last about 2 hours, or until y'all run out of questions for me.

I know this is just after the MOA Rally, but I had a brief opportunity that I wanted to take advantage of. Besides, I figure that y'all can handle riding a few miles north to hear me talk about riding 11,047 miles in 11 days. Heck, you'd even have time to head home, shower, and get all gussied up.

We'll have some snacks on hand. Y'all can bring your favorite tasty beverages.

The location is:

3819 NE 188th Street
Ridgefield, WA
360-727-3410

Take exit 9 (just north of the intersection of I-5 and I-205); also says Clark County Events Center.

Head east, pass through a traffic light, past "Love Leathers" and to the 4-way stop (almost exactly 1 mile).

Turn north and go 1/2 mile to a right turn onto NE 188th Street.

Look for the last house on the right hand side.

Watch for the three speed bumps on 188th - the last ones the worst.
__________

Thanks to Denny for offering his place for this. It's gonna be a blast.

Add your name to the list so we can be sure to put out enough chairs.

Sorry I will miss the get together. I will be 1/2 way back to Phoenix by then. I will look forward to the "cliff notes" version on the IBA website! :-)

It was a great offering, Ken and we were glad to host. For some of us non-initiated IBR types it put the rally in a new perspective. Great program and GREAT finish in the IBR. Can't wait to watch you fly in 2011!

I second and third the earlier responses as to the talks content and you sharing your adventure. Thanks Ken for yet another cool trip across the country through your eyes (and that of the lens).

A huge thank you for Michele and Denney for going out of their way to open their home for friends (new and old). Kudos!
