Got a Pm from a gentleman I met at the Avery's Aircooled show in May 2017. He suggested a friendly cruise this Saturday morning. With nothing to do except mow the grass or reassemble an SP engine that is scattered all over the garage. I accepted the invitation Very Happy
This is our first cruise and hopefully there will be others as this was just plain fun cruising down Hwy 30 in Or. Of course there were the usual folks waving and truckers honking their horns and thumbs up from other drivers in appreciation of our 6 car group headed down the Hwy.

Yeah, real great. Unless you're the only one with whom nobody agrees! Cool

I agree with that...... Laughing


There's never enough time to do it right the first time. But there's always enough time to do it twice.

it was a pleasure "BLOWING" the doors off you 65. Shocked

You should post the pic on Clatskinie hill. You know. The one where I blew by you at 80+ Very Happy

Had a great time and thanks to you and Don for being good sports and continuing despite it being just the three of us.

Oh and Thank you for lunch Don. It was great.

We'll definitely do this again. Hopefully many times. Cool

Pleasure was all mine! Nice to hang with fellow enthusiasts. It was a nice drive, a great lunch, and next time I won't let Avenger pass me on the hills, the throttle was only halfway Very Happy
