I get back from Germany late at night on Wednesday the 9th. I'm not sure we will make it all the way there on the Thursday the 10th, but we will for sure make it there by Friday the 11th at the latest.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

rgmr250 - I'll be bringing a propane stove (small one) and if you need to heat something up or even just heat water your welcome to come over and use it.

Both of the places we ate at last year in Richland and Cambridge gave you a lot of good food for not a lot of money. The roads to both are excellent motorcycle roads too. Cambridge is about 40 miles and Richland is about 30 miles.

We would love to have you join us!

Thanks for the info. I really hope I can make it. The dates are Sep 11-13 - does that normally mean travelling there on the days prior to the 11th, and travelling back home on the 14th? I'm thinking that I'll likely only be able to travel on the 11th, staying the night of the 11th and 12th, then travel back home on the 13th. Google says it's about a 9 hour ride for me (plus gas/food/bathroom stops.). I've only done short trips so far (longest was about 7 hours in one day including stops), but a 9 hour ride in one day sounds doable. My wife says she gets bored on the back of the bike on long trips (even though I really bought the bike for the sole purpose of her being able to ride with me, since she won't get on the back on my Ninja...) so I'll be coming solo - leaves more room for the tent etc. anyway.

Bikes I've owned since June, 2013:
Since sold:11 CBR250R, 89 ZG1000, 92 Ninja 500, 85 V45 Magna, 84 DT200, 82 Virago 750, 92 Virago 1100, 04 Kawasaki ZZR250, 07 Vstrom 650 ABS, 88 GL1500, 14 Ninja 300, 86 V65 Magna, 96 VLX600, 08 WR250X, 09 KLX250S, 87 FZR1000, 14 Ninja 650, plus some more...

Henry, I'm not a coffee or tea drinker, and it sounds like it's not far to go for food, so I probably won't need to take you up on that offer, but thanks anyway. I'm looking forward to the trip, as long as I'm able to get away on that Friday.

Everyone is free to come and leave when they want. Typically most come the day before and leave the last scheduled day. Personally Greg and I are planning on travelling down on Wednesday the 9th and leaving Sunday morning.


My wife doesn't ride with me either, except rarely on very short local rides. She also gets bored on long trips, so I can relate and will be coming without my wife also.

I don't travel without my two burner cook stove and sundies. I am always firm on cooking my own meals while motorcycle camping with an occasional exception of an occasional restaurant meal.

I will probably bring along my Campfire in a Can propane campfire if they are still prohibiting campfires.

I haven't been riding much this year, but I think I'm gonna try and stop in and say hello to a few of you guys. I fly by the seat of my pants, so I don't know when I'll be there or when I'll be leaving, but hope to see ya!

So, who is all going, when are you leaving and when do you expect to arrive?

I have not finalized my plans yet. I know I will be available for travel on Thursday morning, but other than that, no other plan.

I will be traveling solo. I hope to be riding back with Wine_r on Sunday.

I'm riding from the Vancouver, BC Canada area. I'll be leaving on the 10th, staying in Yakima, then arriving on the 11th. Coming back Sunday, staying in Yakima overnight, then home on Monday. I originally considered riding the full trip in one day, but 10+ hours of riding in one day... I'm not sure I'm into that - I haven't done any long trips on the Goldwing yet, so we'll see.

I'm curious if anybody is coming from my neck of the woods - might be nice to ride with somebody else, at least part of the way?

Had a death in the family and the funeral is that weekend so while I was hoping to make it, it is not to be.
