Im thinking of going on a day trip to Troy OR. on 9-6-10. Ill be leaving the Tri - Cities around 0700 and the trip is around 320 miles round trip. 90% grave roads and 10% black top. The lodge will be closed on monday, so no gas or food. If we fill up in Walla Walla its about 160 miles round trip to fill up with gas. So if you would like to go ,let me know. Dirt

Sounds like fun, wish I could go. Never mind it would just wear out a good dirt bike.

Ok, Ok, here are a few:

Some old farm equipment near a farm house. Look close, it's a Pacer!




Some pretty cool old stuff here.


Up on Skyline Drive.


Craig2211's awesome KTM 950 Super Enduro!


Somewhere above Troy. I think.




You can see the road we are about to take up on the right side of the picture.


Troy.


And of course, the F800GS.






We REALLY wanted to eat at the great burger place in Troy, but they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we had to wait till we got to Pomeroy to eat at this little place. Sure beats beef jerky and corn nuts though!


It was getting late, so we hit the pavement all the way back home. No problem for me and Craig2211, but I'm sure YamWow was wishing he had a bigger bike at that time. Of course when we were on the rough stuff I was wishing I had my Beta

The End.

WTF? You couldn't get a better picture of that Pacer??? Would have been an award winning pic for the "Abandoned Vehicle" thread. big

*Looks like a fun run.

Nice looking riding country there! How many miles did you get for the day ride?
