    First ride Emmett 1.jpg

    Last January, Just above the city of Emmett Idaho, at a pull out on Highway 16. I bought this bike a few months earlier and it was in real bad shape. Tore it all down and went through most of the systems. I have a couple more nits to take care of before riding begins again this spring. Thanks for looking.
  2. Wow! Bodywork is looking great!
  3. Dittos to Tony. I was not there but can only imagine half of the effort it took to put this shin-dig on. Despite not attending - we all benefit from the generosity of Tony and others on this forum. Thank you.
  4. Thanks for posting up pics. Wish I was there. Ride safe. Cheers!
  5. All packed up and Bluebird is ready to fly. Leaving Sunday am. First night West Yellowstone. Then will meet some of you in Sheridan on Monday in time for dinner. Cheers!
  6. I know what you mean. I'm just making a point to get riding multiple long day trips as a way to tune up the body.... Cheers!
  7. Still planning to make this trip on the RWB that I refurbished over winter. Still working out a few bugs and trying to get some miles on it to make all the critters are shaken off. I have a room at the Rocket. Also working on my own stamina. I'm not in bad shape but also have not done multiple days on a VFR for about 10 years. (My FJR is much more comfy). My wife is encouraging me to trailer over there. Me? NAH! Just muscle through the backpain. Makes a cold beer at the end of the day better anyway. Axel I indicated that I'd meet you guys on the west end of the Lolo Pass. At the moment I'm thinking about a more direct route to reduce the number of days on the road (I know - missing the whole point). I'll PM you a week prior with a go/no-go. Looking forward to meeting everyone. Cheers Ernie
  8. Axel, thanks for all the planning. It looks like a great route. As noted Kooskia is a great spot for me to link up with you guys. I'll go ahead and book rooms as suggested. Looking forward to this. Didit, I'll look for the registration and get that taken care of. Thanks to you both! Cheers!

    Pics of my RWB on first ride after full mechanical refresh.
  10. Hmmm... Orofino.. I may ride up from Boise and meet up for the ride across Hwy 12. I'll stay tuned.

  12. Rum is for the tropics. Whiskey for the mountains.... OK - I'm good either way....Not too picky....
  13. Hope some of you folks from BC bring some whiskey with you..... Just sayin'..... :-)
  14. Booked #32 this morning. Dates look good so far and looking forward to meeting folks.

  18. Choco (and friends).... isn't meant to be for me... I was hoping to escape at dawn on Friday and join all of you for a ride on Saturday and return Sunday. But I can't get off work. I was able to make a tour up in that area in early June and had a great time. Would have been nice to meet, drink, eat, and ride with you and I'm a bit disappointed. Stating the obvious "have a great ride"! Maybe next time. Ernie
  19. Choco, I am now a "possible maybe" to meet you guys in Bend. I am trying to get Friday the 25th off work. If that works, then I'd meet you guys in Bend on Friday night in time for a beer and dinner in that order. Then ride the loop with all of the gang on Saturday. Head home Sunday and back to work Monday. I have your cell phone number. I'll know for sure by Tuesday evening. I'll post up here and text you one way or the other. I know you guys are staying at Red Lion. I'll sort out lodging on Tuesday even if its a campground. For reference my mobile# is 916-412-4828. Coming north from Sacramento - if it works out. I'm crossing my fingers. Cheers, Ernie
  20. Choco, I'm out. I had to move my vacation time UP. I took a few days off last week and was able to take a long ride up the Oregon coast and back down through the mtns, Crater Lake and home. So I just can't get back up your way this year. Safe and pleasurable ride to all of you who go! Ernie
  21. Hi Choco - my work schedule is now a bit iffy. I'm still planning to join but now a maybe. Plan b for me would be to meet the group in Bend for your last two days. Come up Thursday and be there for rides on Friday and Saturday. Will keep you posted. Ernie
  22. Choco - count me in. I have the dates on my calendar. I have not made lodging arrangements. But I'll look through the thread and get that taken care of. Ernie
  23. Well - I marked it on the calendar. It looks like a great trip and through an area most of which I've never seen. Thanks for planning ahead! Ernie
