I just cannot make it. I do not have enough time available to do a ride that long. Honestly, I have never ridden that far. It would be a serious challenge for me. It would probably take me two weeks to do that run.
I feel bad because I a dumping BC1100S on you. Kind of fell like I am leaving you in the cage with a rabid possum. Look at the bright side, you two get to do the Rs to S conversion seminar together.
Not sure if some of the other S characters like terham, k75s, festus and bikerfish are heading that way.
Rad...don't know what to make of him. Probably hexheading his way there.
I just remembered...
terhamI will be in Salem...but on my KRS.
Otherwise, wine tours, Columbia River gorge drive, Oregon coast drive, whatever we can fit in.
Hope to meet some of you out there.
Looked at renting from MotoQuest in Portland (http://www.motoquest.com), but think I will just use the money to buy some farkles or gear at the rally.
Then there is the possibility I may be riding home on my new K1300S Superstakes prize!
2014 R1200 GSA (Property taxes & registration: $309), 1992 K75s (Property taxes & registration: $37), 2014 Honda VFR800 (OMG this is a fun bike!)
Hey, Bluehole, how far are you from Duke? 150 or so miles? I may ride out for her graduation next May.
Flying to the rally. Why didn't I think of that? Not a bad idea. Might do that for the next west coast rally.
Rad, I am about 150-170 miles away from Durham. Let me know if you ride out and some time when you get a break in the graduation action I will buy you a Cheerwine.
But hey, I get it, totally. To get all the way to the East coast I'd probably have to hire someone haul my sorry old butt and bike!
Still, you will be missed...(sort of...)! OTOH, BC1100S and I can impugn your sterling reputation to our hearts content without interference. Assuming of course that you've not enlisted spies to continue your nefarious pursuits against we beleaguered S owners! We'll make up some good stories about the fabled RS to S conversion "process".
Sorry to say, I won't be there. Had planned to fly, but alas, events have conspired to keep me here this year. I'll have to catch you all at the next one.IMG_0347.jpgNot sure if some of the other S characters like terham, k75s, festus and bikerfish are heading that way.
Heading out in the morning for the "Oregon Trail". Will be on my not-yet-completed RS to S conversion project bike. :-) Should arrive in Salem Thursday afternoon...NEXT Thursday afternoon. :-)
terham, what is all that stuff on/near your windshield? Looks like a clipboard.
Enjoy the trip. Check in along the way. We will enjoy tagging along.
It all makes sense now. I see the bar and I can actually read camelback.
