Unhappy

Well, I WON'T be heading over the North Cascades' Highway on 8/25.
Due to the forest fires and the rain that is supposed to hit next weekend I cancelled my reservations in Chelan.
I really am very bummed, my vacation plans are starting to suck now...
You wait ALL year long and nature throws in her wildcards and it all goes down the dumper!! I have two weeks vacation and I hope I can get in some great riding yet!!
I still have plans for going down to Oregon that week,let's hope the weather turns good so I can ride the Kat instead of taking the Camaro.
Stay tuned for further adventures.........

Sorry, Jim, it sucks that Mother Nature finds a way to rain on your parade.

I'm in the same boat: took off this coming week from work for the specific purpose of riding every day. Instead, the weather forecast calls for rain from Tuesday on.

Screw it, I'm still not going back to work!

Well, you should still take the Katana whether it's raining or not - anything is better than driving a camaro.

BTW, I'm heading over to Paradise (Mt. Ranier) tomorrow am. E-mail me if you can go.

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

Well,didn't check my emails till late in the day,sorry,but I am sure we can figure on something the next few weeks,(before the weather turns soggy again for the year)
BTW how are the leathers?? I just got a new First Gear "Speed" jacket. I ordered upgraded hard armour that should be in this week.

Later;

I sent the leathers back and ordered the next size up. Should be okay this time. Heck, they'll even arrive in time for next summer, since this one appears to be over. That means I can wear them around the house to break 'em in over the winter. Michelle really digs it. One time I tried to drive back from South Center Mall with her and Elise in the car and my helmet on, but she wouldn't even let me get out of the parking lot. She might have something against Doohan.

The forecast shows showers at least through Friday, but maybe the weekend will clear up a bit. I'll contact you before the end of the week if the weather looks decent.
