The night before I had decided to simply take 395 North and then I-90 West as the quickest route. Friday morning the bike had other ideas. Left John Day stuffed with one fantastic breakfast by 7:30am and the ride was on.

Arrived in Hood River at 11:00 via Fossil, Spray, Kimberly, Condon, Wasco and Biggs and proceeded to chat up this gal with the Labadoodle.

My wife wants one so a little fact gathering was to be had. The dog’s name in Whiskey, I don’t remember the woman’s name.

After a little ice-cream, yummy, that was inhaled prior to pictures..


I was off to Mt. St. Helens on WA14..


I met these two interesting gents, Mike and Ron, from Boise Idaho who were in the area for a Motorcycle Trike Rally. Mike on the left was a real character, can you tell?


After taking a pic of the Mt. Ron offered to “spice it up a bit” by including one with me, and yes my camera still functions.



I arrived safely home to hugs and kisses and PIZZA! Pizza goes fast around here when my 13 year old vacuum, uhm son, is in the house.

Hopz and Mrs Hopz back in the barn at 1800 hours on Friday night.

Safely; no awards, no near misses, 12+ on a 10 point scale of scenery, 15+ on the same scale for meeting people and seeing friends.

Condensed version of ride report is: Ride, traffic, solitude, wind, hot, aromas, friends, eat, ride, tired, exhilarated, twisty roads, construction, cold, desert, crowded, ride, home.

Details to follow.

Done, just closed the door 15 minutes ago, odometer shows 3988 km for the complete trip.

went out via vale then up the lola pass, missoula, great falls, overnight in fort benton, neat little town and, then over to malta turn left and headed for the north pole.

it sure was no fun having to leave, but the roads were good and the weather stayed fine, and the awarder of performances didn't see me, man i love haulin @$$ in Montana...

Next year?

PT Steve and MS PT are home via a route composed of what Kitsap did and what he planned to do. We went up 19 through Fossil and Condon. Then we got on 206. It starts out like it's going to run through wheat fields. However, the whole thing is really a series of canyons. Anyway, from Biggs, we went on good ole 97 to Yakima then slabbed back on I-90 for a while.

Very enjoyable trip and now there are some faces to go with the names. Now if we in the north could get something going like the guys from Cal. (Torrey twice a year, DVD a couple of times a year).

Hello to all ...
Becca and I rolled into Susanville about 3:00 pm today. Total trip mileage was 1750 door to door. Not bad considering we played around over at the Rogue River for a couple of days before heading over to John Day.
Had a great time, enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting some new friends.Outside of getting Becca's boots ripped off the first night out things went well. Hope everyone gets home event free.
