Flat track school

During Snowmageddon, Travis, Andrew, and Patrick headed down to Salem for local go-faster Andy DiBrino’s first-ever flat track school.  The icy roads on the way down set the tone for the day, and we had fun turning laps around the indoor track.

Andy did a great job with the school and is already looking forward to the next one.  Champ Brad Baker and Sammy Halbert alternated on-track sessions with us, we did our best to pick up some pro tips (and share a few of our own, of course).

Movie Premier – Mondo Sahara – Thursday!

The intrepid Austin Vince of Mondo Enduro returns to Portland, this time documenting a 5000-mile DIY motorcycle adventure through the largest desert in the world, just six guys on XR400s into an al Qaida heavy desert. Joining Austin will be local riders and fellow Mondo Saharans  Eric Sowle and Pablo Gustafson.As usual, Austin’s goal is to show beyond a doubt that “in only 4 weeks door to door, a bunch of regular guys, with hardly any specialist gear, can have an affordable world-class travel adventure!” — and that maybe the locals aren’t really all that bad. Plus Giant Loop will be there with goodies to raffle! We’ve brought Austin to town before and it’s always a good time. Don’t miss it!
Austin Vince: Mondo Sahara
Tickets $5 at the door (cash only)
Doors open at 8:30
Movie starts at 9pm
Clinton Street Theater
2522 SE Clinton St, Portland OR

Back Forty Enduro – Sunday, 15 December

The SFRC’s “Back Forty Enduro” is less than two weeks away!  On Sunday, 15 December, meet in Scappoose, Oregon, bright and early.  We’ve contracted with a local ferry company, they will get us across the river to get the adventure started!  The event is FREE, and it’ll take you through some fine scenic roads in the wonderland that is the Pacific Northwest.
DETAILS:

Where:  Meet at Scappoose Veteran’s Park; just west of Highway 30 on J.P. West road.*  This is just a short 20 miles from Portland, out Highway 30.  We’ll have hot coffee waiting for you.  See red arrow in map below.

When8:30 a.m., Sunday, 15 December.

What:  This ride is mostly off-road, so bring your dual sport bike, plated dirt bike, etc. (we’ll leave the “etc.” up to you, and encourage you to be creative.)  You are also strongly encouraged to bring a compass (a real one, not an “app” on your smartphone), a bite to eat, and a water bottle.

Who:  You and your friends.

Why:  Because riding around the woods with your buddies is better than staying home and waiting for spring.

China Hat, flat track racing

We made a trip out to China Hat recently with a couple friends, had a good time.  Looks like Chopper scored himself a brand-new riding jersey (apparently trading his pants for it):

Here’s Travis doing his best Malcolm Smith impression:

Travis raced the same outfit last weekend at the indoor flat track races in Salem, bagged a 2nd place finish.

Way to go Travis!

The winter begins

Winter’s creeping up on us here in the Pacific Northwest.  That means more time in the shop, and more time in the dirt.  What’ve we been up to recently?  Travis headed out to China Hat and discovered a lake:

Patrick headed up into the woods with a couple of friends:

and the workshops full of industry.  Out with the old, and in with the new.
