Wow, just discovered this thread and I'm late in the game. Wish I could be there. I grew up in Pendleton, OR and though NE Oregon perhaps I'm allowed PNW affiliation even if it's part desert and inland.
I'd love to meet you, see all your cool bikes and go for a ride or two. Mountain man got me thinking of coastal rides with his therapy thread. Fun times and safe rides for all who make this gathering. Take your rain gear just in case.
Stopped by a shop on the way home and now I'm jazzed by those Felt Cruisers. Maybe I'll have one together for the next gathering. All you folks have a great time there.
You record breakers keep in touch and I'll see you here. If Softride forgives me I'm askin to let me light the jets. Funny thing is all my friends were afraid I was gonna buy one. I'll settle for being on the pit crew.
Seriously - I'll wrangle a couple of days off and come watch, help, cheer, etc.
