  2. When you say t-shirts are back do you mean we get a free shirt for signing up for they just have shirts to buy :mrgreen:
     
  3. Wish I could, had a great time a couple years ago... Just can't justify being gone another 3 days after the moto GP trip.

    Dunno. When I find out I'll post it.
    Tom said, 'tell everyone T-shirts are back with the Wick-a-way material'.
    I'll see him at the Seattle bike show.
    The event dates are August 1-5, 2012

    For those that haven't done this, it's a good time. After doing 3 in a row, I stopped going since it's the same location and same rides. I wish they'd rotate the show to different parts of the Northwest so we can get the same level of "discovery" of new roads/routes in our relatively local area (ie, olympic peninsula, north cascades, bc, panhandle, eastern oregon, etc).
     
  7. I went for the first six years and had a great time! Then Tom turned into a complete dick! I wont give that guy anymore of my money.

    Wazzu's right, the roads are getting real old and the cops are thick at rally time. Its ok, my buddies and I have started FTM (F&^K Tom Mehren). 30-40 of us go out towards Hells Canyon for a week long trip late august. We ride much better roads and maybe see one to two cops all week long!

    NEW RIDES
    The beauty of the Columbia River Gorge is enhanced by the fact that it boasts hundreds of miles of twisties. Because of this, our suggested rides change from year to year. It's not possible to ride all the great roads here in a single rally, so we mix it up year-to-year. All attendees get free ride maps complete with turn-by-turn directions and riding skills tips. Optional MapSource GPS files are available for download once you arrive.

    ALL NEW FUN RUN
    We've never repeated the same fun run route twice, so it's always new year after year. This year's fun run wraps itself 200 miles around Skamania county along a massive series of serpentine roads.

    Whatchoo talkin bout? In the morning I walkEd over to the bike barn, and in the evening I walked back from it. And of course, around midnight I had to walk all the way around the truck to get to my tent.

    Next year though, I'm planning on mounting a major expedition one evening. Imma round up anybody with the physical endurance and strength required to make it all the way to the walking man brewpub, just to see what's there.
     
  17. Looks like fun!! Looks like I need to get a sport bike TOO:mfclap:

    You're on. If we can carry frickin ice back from the gas station, we should be able to handle a little walk into town, no? :mrgreen:

    Agreed! Especially since we're also capable (or stupid) enough to toss a full tank of propane in with the ice, all while managing to eat chicken strips at the same time we walk down the street loaded down like frickin pack mules.
