It took a blown pickup motor in the supply vehicle, a loner pickup from an awesome Dad in Idaho, but we made it up to the mountains. We fished, hiked, sat in the ice cold river and managed to dodge the wolves despite tracks, and crap all around us. Over 1100 miles on bikes not meant for a full day of riding or mountain sand roads for that matter. Passed a million Harley’s all on their way to Sturgis and one lone dude on a cafe bike all packed up like he had been riding across country. Pretty awesome. We took some video footage that we will work into a quick edit as well. Here are some pics from the trip.
One of our good buddies Jason Miranda heads up a soft goods company here in Portland called Trusty Switchblade. He and his wife Erica have been killing it lately with some awesome handmade goods. Made for TS Cyclecross crew this tool kit looked to perfect to use with motorcycles. I bought one and put it to the test and it’s perfect. For a handmade toolkit you won’t beat the price either.

Not sure how we missed a motorcycle museum just blocks from the garage, but we did. Every 1st tuesday Rose City Motorcycle Museum has a get together to drink beer, check out the bikes and BBQ. Tons of old brits, a stunning Ariel, trials bikes and probably the best little collection of Ducati’s we’ve seen. We met Tom Young the owner who is as nice as they come. We will probably become regulars now that we are in the know. Literally, 4 blocks away….what the hell?!
