Nice Day in the Pacific NW

We had a merry chase through the foothills this weekend. The picture shows a turn for Fall City, a group of SLKs and even a surprised motorcyclist.

It was a great trip. I am hoping to get a few more SLK world members from the Portland Metro area to caravan up with us on a future event.

Wooly,

This summer my brother and three or four friends have a couple of fun mcycle rides in mind: Seattle, WA to Bella Coola, BC then on to Calgary, AB and down to Kalispell, Mt to visit Dad. For day trips we are doing the Dam Tour, riding to dams mostly in Washington and Oregon, taking our pics and publishing to the site. Most people don't understand the Dam Tour but, even without knowing you, I thought you would. http://www.damtour.com/dam_maps.html

Greetings Checkered Demon from Salem, Or! We were just up the hill a little bit from you in my White '99 SLK230, & yes that was a fun little run & a perfect day as well! We followed Dave54 up there from Portland, OR which that was a fun drive as well, We had the top down all the way back home to Oregon.
