Sounds good, Matt.

Mike, pretty sure the Hwy 20 he's referring to is WA's SR20/North Cascades Hwy.

Hey guys. I hope your trip is going well. Sorry it didn't work out for me this year, but if you want to try another weekend ride in late August, or early September, I should be on.

I haven't worked out a weekend yet, but I want to get my brother from Nelson out on his B6 and meet up with my brother in law and his FZ1 in Merritt for a weekend ride, so maybe the BC or US Okanagon. Both my brother Phil and I should have some extra time, but in-law will likley only have the weekend.

Anyway, hope the trip went well. Post up some pics!!

Once again, I did a terrible job doing any sort of photo essay of this year's trip, but I did manage to snap a few pics from Rowena Loops/Rowena Crest, the River Retreat in Spray (the house rented out by the same lady that rented us the trailer last year), where we spent two nights, and a grainy pic of MobileMike working on his bike on the patio of the retreat on Friday night (you can barely see Mike though).

Mike has located the source of the problem. "What the hell?! This bike has...carbs!"

Mike almost dropped his bike 3 times getting it to this point:



As usual, a ton of awesome roads in NE Oregon. Great trip--thanks guys.
