Pilots and Passengers:

As you no doubt have noticed, the calendar is about to roll into June. Hmmm, you might be pondering, what might David have up his sleeve for Saturday? The answer is that David and others will be enjoying the last Western States 1000, a first-weekend-of-June mainstay for the last 30 years. Alas, this is the final year of the event, which means next year, we may have no choice but to ride on the first Saturday of June.

Instead, mark your calendars for Sunday, 10 June. On that fine day, we will gather for a sprint to Kahneeta, south and east of Mt. Hood, smack dab in the middle of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. Think we're just going to turn around and head back? Wrong! After lunch, we head south, exploring Pelton Dam and Lake Simtustus. After a stop at Round Butte Overlook, we'll continue on toward Sisters, then Detroit, where we'll take the Breitenbush Road toward Estacada and home. If you behave, we may even stop for ice cream along the way!

If you're planning on getting home in time to mow the lawn, you're probably out of luck. It's going to be a full day, about 360 miles, with lots of new roads and stunning vistas to distract us along the way. If that sounds better than mowing the lawn, then join us at Tigard BMW. Clutches out promptly at 9:45am. First gas is 70 miles out, so plan accordingly. RSVPs are appreciated. Questions? Don't hesitate to reach out.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday the 10th.

Ride safely,
