    Once again, I was lucky enough to spend 2.5 days with some fantastic riders.

    This ride just seems to get better every year, and it is because of the people.
    Rich (BABUSA) rode all the way up from Cali, Skydivr came from clear across the country, and numerous friends came from the other side of Washington state.

    All in all, 21 of us traversed some of the best backroad twisties that Oregon has to offer.

    No crashes, no tickets, perfect weather.... it just doesn't get any better.
    Photo's to follow...

    Premium fuel was.... well..at a premium. Some of the guys had to use 87 octane once in awhile..

    Most of the time was spent with one knee out...

    They were followed closely by BABUSA. Rich's riding posture looks so stinkin' relaxed... but don't let it fool ya.. he flat rocks that gen2..

    If you EVER get the chance to ride with tufbusa.. do NOT pass it up. Steven is not only a great guy, but a hoot to ride with. We blasted one fantastic 45+ mile stretch on Sunday... I'll never forget it!

    Thanks for makin' me feel fast buddy!!

    If someone had a bike I could borrow, I would definitely be up for this trip next time. My family all lives in Portland so it would be an easy sell to the wife. "Honey, I need to spend some time with my folks...." :laugh:

    The entire trip was a REAL TREAT! The best hospitality in the country can be found at the Wilson Ranch. Rib Steaks that fill a dinner plate with home made desert every night, YUM! After five years the cow they carve the steaks off of is getting a little skinny (According to Phil) but she's still producing some delicious Rib Steaks! :cool:

    MJN takes pride in caressing his busa into artistically carving the corners. Makes it look so easy! Could have something to do with the morning coffee, I'm not sure?

    Looks pretty cool, eh? :whistle:

    Second photo, his arse is dragging just like mine after a spirited run back to the ranch! :beerchug:

    Dang it that looks like a good time! Nice pics and way to rock. I can't imagine you could beat Steve as a ridin' partner. Need to look him up when I get rolling again...:thumbsup: :beerchug:
