PostSubject: New Guy from Elgin   1/27/2016, 9:45 am

Greetings, I just joined the forum after seeing the listing on Craigslist.  I am glad there is a group of fellow riders close by!  I have been riding most of my life, and I purchased my first Dual Sport back in 2012 after my return from Iraq.  Currently, I have a 2010 XR650L with a ton of mods, and I have been putting quite a few miles on my bike each year.  I haven't been able to find too many people on my side of the mountain that have bikes, or that want to ride on a regular basis, so I am hoping to find a regular group to do some riding with.  I live on top of the Minam Summit on my family's ranch, and there isn't too many roads or trails that I haven't ridden from Mt. Emily to Troy or from Elgin to Halfway and Anthony lakes.  My biggest goal/ dream is to get a group together to head to Moab for a week and explore this late spring or early fall.  At any rate, I hope to catch up with you guys soon!

Yes indeed... MOAB!  Dirt Either way, looking forward to riding!  I am still buried under 2-3 feet of snow at my place, but I am not opposed to hauling somewhere... just sayin!  Thanks for the welcome!

I accidentally use WA instead of OR when googling Elgin.  HAHAHAHA...comes up Australia.

*I still say we get a Naches trip together since it's centralized to almost everyone.

Gotcha, Let me know what I can do to help!  I am in the Oregon Army National Guard, so there are obviously weekends that I am going to be busy, but we can figure out a date and start making arrangements.

Count me in.  I just fired up the DRZ400 today... Most of the snow is going off here in Selah, but it will be a while for Naches... Which is my back yard.

Sweet, that's four... I've still got quite a bit of snow here too, but that just means I've got a bit of time to do some more mods to the Pig!

 J-Dub what can you tell me about the riding areas around you like MT Emily and Breshears.
I just bought a cabin down in Sumpter and theres a riding area called Blue Mountain OHV, have you rode there?
if you know these area's we need to hook up when the snow melts.
