Brian and Marissa, this NW group is lucky to have you! You put this on just to bring the people together and we all benefit from greatly.
I feel bad that I got there so late and wasn't able to help out more. It was great meeting some of the guys for the first time, and seeing all the other Bum's as well.
I think we need to do a sun dance because all this wet stuff is getting old!

Remember half the fun is getting there, and the other half is getting back!

Thanks Bryan for the being a great host. I may have been one of the whimps that chose to drive, but that doesn't mean the day wasn't expensive. After seeing all the Zumo 550's there, I had to come home and buy one. Been trying to figure out which one to get, but seeing all those made it easy. Can't wait for the darn weather to break and get some "spirited" riding in.



Now you see that....not only are we helping out our fellow FJR'ers, but we are also helping revive the economy for our fellow Washingtonians. We are damn good Americans...no, we are PATRIOTS.

I was considering the North Cascade Loop over...have not done it on the bike yet.


IMHO, you might consider returning from CFR via Loup Loup Summit. East to west gives you a nicer view.

Great day to be inside, the weather sucked and forced a few to cage it, wingshot traveled the hardest route over Snolqualmie pass. He was questioning the whole time why he was trailering his bike, until he hit the white out snow storm coming over at Snoqualmie. (Said he had to chain up going home). Smart move on his part. Ralph carpooled with the Portland group and trailered his bike up.

All told we had 20 show up with four or five wives in tow also. It was a great to see everyone and a few new faces. (Sorry I didn't get all the forum names for some of you...next time) It was good to see 2wheeltiger make it after all he has been through yahoo.gif , and Taff after his new surgery hobbling around...Now give it a rest and heal up so you can ride again soon! wink.gif

Bench race and stories were going on all over the garage. It was a great time! clapping.gif yahoo.gif

Duster19 had a Boy Scout jamboree that ran long and prevented him from being able to make it. But we'll get together in the next few weeks and get his fuzeblock installed.

Here are some pics.

BeamerReamer and Mrs. arriving (She is not sure about the driveway and how steep it is... they did just fine)






Niehart preparing another TBS with Taff and ? (sorry I din't get your name) looking on.



Hudson explaining to Makuna...(My daughters missed his boys, they were looking forward to having them over again...next time Hudson!)



2WheelTigwer's scoot, well farkeled




The famous 2wheeltiger bottle opener, tool holder and auxilary power outlets!



Ralph and escapefrtist cleaning the K&N




Niehart and escapefjrtist looking over someone's scoot



Ralph's ride came on a trailer, he gave the Portland contingent a ride, N2sox (& Mrs.) & BluFJR

Hey Dave, not a bad memory for such an old guy!!! Thanks Bryan for mounting my tires, the good bench racing stories and thanks to Marissa for putting up with everyone trudging through your home.
Hope to see everyone again soon,

We had a great time, and we really enjoyed seeing "old" friends and meeting new ones. Also, thinks for the ride Ralph. I was happy to lend a "hand" anywhere that was needed. And once again, Bryan and Marissa, you guys rock!

Confused enough. Still have not done my ignition recall, brake service, battery service or aircleaner. Forget the valve service. Need to get busy before CFR.
