When Ashland was picked for this year I could not really figure out why - didn't look like much on the map. Boy was I wrong! After a day of riding  with rc30boy on wonderful twisty nearly no traffic roads that are beautifully engineered and well maintained, I am a convert. The only problems are that I only have one bike (endless dual sport opportunitys) and not enough time. Ashland is the real deal.

Same here, we decided to ride Cal 96 to Happy Camp and then head north and had a great day ride.  There seemed to be an endless supply of back roads that were curvy with some serious elevation changes.  Sorry we have to bail early Sunday morning but its a long ride home and one of us has to be at work tomorrow morning.

Paul and I followed Explorer yesterday down Rte 96 to Eureka.  He then led us around the lost coast and back to Eureka where we stayed for the night.  

Today, Paul and I are continuing our journey.  We are now two weeks in our 5-6 week trip.  

Thanks to Wade for hosting the BBQ Friday night.

So friday night there were 8 STN'ers, about 15 MotorPsychos (my local riding crew) and Dave Moss at my house for a bbq that I would like to think went quite well.  On Saturday Spectre, Knobnose and I did a 275 mile wander whilst others found there own routes.  The majority packed up and went home today, Knobnose stayed on though and joined in with the 'psychos for our standard Sunday run.  I hope everyone who showed up had a good time, would like to think that maybe as time goes on we will start getting back to the days of 30 and 40 bikes at WCRM's.  Oh yeah Viffer, no deer, did have a bear cub run across in front of me though.

Hey that sounds really cool! Thanks so much for hosting. Maybe when Ashland comes around in the rotation people will be more willing to take a chance.

Now we need pictures.

And Explorer do check in - did you get rescued?

I'm not sure how Wade got to 8 STN'ers Friday night unless he was counting himself but I only counted 5 travelers from the West Coast....and only 1 from California.  Quite a change from my first WCRM in 2006 when 60 attended in Fortuna.  I have only missed one WCRM (2011) since 2006 and the attendance has been pretty low since 2009.   Why?  I don't think the endless polls have helped the attendance, every year the votes cast are at least double the attendance.  Are riders boycotting the event if their location and time are not selected?

Wade put a lot of time and effort into organizing a very nice event and Ashland is the real deal for some great riding, its a shame that the attendance was so dismal.....even lower than WCRM 13.5 held in Baker City last September.  What is it going to take to get STN'ers to actually ride their bikes to a WCRM?

Thanks again Wade, it was a fun BBQ and great Saturday ride.  Sorry we missed you at dinner Saturday night but life got in the way.

Yeah, counted myself and Paul who was along with Acadian and not strictly an STN'er.  Thanks for the thumbs up, there is a lot of really good riding here and it would be fun to host something more lively.

Got back late Monday, to much exploring........all in all, one of the best day rides and weekend get together STN event I've been to.  Weather, perfect (no rain)roads, fabulous, scenery, breathtaking, friends, a plenty, host, excellent well organized generous.

The Ride, is the defining part of weekend STN event.  Tho we had a goodtime , rc30boy, knobnose, and myself,  MORE IS FUNNER.
If you were not familiar with the area, this was a chance to get an outfitted tour of Ashland, the surrounding communities, and things to see and do. Once you see the whole picture, you get a appreciation of Ashland and what it has to offer the motorcycle community. Being centrally located, so to speak, in the West Coast region of the STN group, provides access to all, even for Hawaii, eh knobnose?

Thanks to all our Canadian friends for your participation.  Paul, Leon, hope your travels are everything you planned and more!   Leon 9 yrs was along time ago since the last time we met, so maybe sooner this time around......Banff Run?
Hope the Human GPS, Explorer Jim is back home for work and everything is OK.

Last, but surely not least, our host Wade.  Thanks for everything and the memories. You have great organizational skills.  As an honorary member of the Motopsychos of the Rouge River Valley, Boise charter(I have the hat to prove it!), I  promise to drag kicking and screaming any and all motopsychos needing a twisty fix to, Ashland Oregon for reeducation.  It's been a pleasure attending the 1st Annual Ashland "Turning Fuel into Adrenaline"( Did I quote that right?)Weekend.  Hopefully the word will spread this into annual must do event for STN'rs around the world!


See ya on the road,
Jeff

I'm sure there is a lot of great riding, especially for my S10, and now that I know where you live....who needs a WCRM to ride Ashland?  I bet you don't even bother to lock your doors when you leave the house.  Bigsmile

Actually you are correct, I don't lock up if I'm only gone for the day...and I am so glad you all enjoyed the riding, and yes Spectre, you got the quote right.
