    More riding

    Saturday 4-18-07

    Spring is springing, motorcycles are coming out of the woodwork and thereís riding to be done and this is the bike I was riding.


    Met some of my ADV friends for breakfast and a ride. ADV friends were eating while I was taking pictures of their bikes.


    We rode through the Eastern Washington Palouse farmland.

    Then we rode to Steptoe Butte, a few of you have been up there with me

    This was our group


    This was a Triumph group that came up. They were a lot more precise in the way they parked. The top of the butte was filled with bike it was sooooooo cool.


    At the end of the 1800s there was a grand hotel built on top of this butte however with the nasty dirty windy road to get to it not many people made the journey. The hotel burned in the early 1900s and wasnít rebuilt. Later the butte was donated to the state to remain open to the public as a park for all to enjoy.

    spring riding

    Ahh yes, Steptoe Butte, I remember it well..I have been really missing my Goldwing while here in Branson, I got to ride my sisters sissy bike harley sportster a couple of times, i guess when presented with few alternatives a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. anyhow right now I'm in Littlerock Arkansas waiting for my wife to arrive at the airport, Tomorrow we're driving down to Murfreesboro to mine for diamonds..(maybe if we get lucky there may be a new bike in my future) in 2 weeks i'll be driving back west to Prescott, Arizona for a visit with my older brother for a few weeks, then back to Kentucky the 20th of June. I' thinking about flying back to Portland and retrieving the 'wing while I'm in Arizona, unless I find someone who would be willing to trade thier bike for my 97 Buick Century. I should be back for good by mid July if all goes well..Bear

    Bear and Elmo, there are so many places that bring back good memories of the the rides we've done. Great times!

    Bear it sure sounds like you're staying busy. Good luck on your diamond mining, I hope you find some good ones.
