It's interesting. I could leave here about 4pm on the 9th. Ride to Kennewick Wa. From there it is 575 Miles to Weaverville. Do-able. But Have no idea if I can do that n the Triumph.  Headscratch
My guess is not. But I could arrive Sunday  Lol  


I did Richmond to Kettle Falls on my Triumph (practically the same as yours) in a day last year on the way to meet up with the boys in Neslon. It was a surprisingly comfortable ride.

Via Highway 20 that is about 750 km and an entertaining ride. My sits on a GT we're surprising to me as the seat to peg felt about identical to the ST. I am hoping I have tamed the ST for more distance. My knees are the issue for me. Right now the Triumph is close to the Guzzi's riding position. I have done 1100 km in a day on Guzzi coming home from Klamath Falls. The last 150 were not great.

So we shall see.

100KM on any bike is gonna have its issues, I would think. My  pain points are my upper back and left ankle. Most long rides I just suck it up, but after about 700 or so KM it does start to get unbearable.

Rates at Trinity are not too bad:

We do have nonsmoking rooms open and the rates are as follows:
A room with a queen bed is $65.00 plus tax per day
A room with a King bed is $75.00 plus tax per day
A room with two double or two queens beds is $80.00 plus tax per day.

However, he did not indicate how many rooms were available that weekend.i have sent a follow up to request that,as well as get an ide if they would block off some rooms for a short period while people here made their arrangements.

So,should we now go ahead and post a new thread with the dates June 9 to 11 for WCRM 2017?
