    This is going to be a fun event...held in Portland, Oregon. I found the thread on advrider.com for last year's event and it looks like a blast. In fact, my buddies and I started (respectfully) exploring alleyways and such all around Salem and have found some fun places to go... plus some neat urban obstacles.

    We are hoping to get all four of us TW200 guys from Salem up to the event... It's about 50 miles north on the Interstate (I-5), so we haven't decided if we can safely go that far since the speed limit is 65 and most people are doing 70-80mph. We may just trailer up there...

    Anyway, it'd be great to see more T-dubs owners there... here's some info:

    That looks like a kick-in-the-ass! Definately have to trailer up from Eugene. T-Dubs are perfect for that.

    Here's one of our Alley Sweeping routes in Salem, up by the Governor's Mansion... Fun little urban trail at the end!

    I looked at their site and didn't see any Info on there to meet, am I just a dumb-ass? Can I join the T-Dub gang, and ride with you guys?

    Here's the organizer's info on their website / calendar:

    http://sang-froidrid...b.com/calendar/

    But it doesn't say location and time yet. I hope that's announced. Otherwise, we'll meet where they did last year. That info is on last year's ADVrider thread.



    EDIT: Meeting location and time from last year's event:





    "That Saturday, March 26, we hit the streets and muddy alleys of Portland, seeking adventure and avoiding territorial gardeners, on our Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro. Meet up at See See (611 N. Tillamook) at nine a.m. for free coffee – we’ll head out at ten. You don’t need knobbies to have fun on this ride, but if you got ‘em, spoon ‘em on! The ride is free."





    Here's a link to our local offroad website's planning thread:

    You can definitely ride up with us!!! However, if weather sucks, we're gonna try to trailer up there. We're still working out the details of that scenario as I don't think we can get all of us on one trailer.

    If we do ride, it will be up Hwy99E or Hwy99W. Definitely not going that far on I-5. Not on T-dubs.

    We could probably meet up in Salem too if you wanted. Sweet there is going to be some good t-dub representation!

    Looks like fun. You guys ever run into any legal issues?

    Ya, I'll either trailer up, or buy a hitch carrier I've had my eye on. Too long of a ride from eugene on the Tdub, if I have to be there at 9am. I'd have to leave at 5:30, not gonna happen. I'll definitely want to meet up with the salem contingent when I get there. Gonna be fun!
