    Heck, no!! I'm much mo' better lookin' than that yahoo!

    knybanjo is a buddy of mine. We've ridden and camped together quite a bit.

    This is his Wee-Strom and my 1150GS at a ghost town in western Montana last summer. We did a day ride together from WestFest.


    This is Kevin (in all black) and me at a chance meeting at Deals Gap last fall.

    Willville is a great place. That was my first stop there, but it definitely won't be my last. I stopped at the Poor Farmer's Market five years ago today on a fly-n-ride when I bought my 1150GS and almost camped at some spot that a guy recommended near there. It was probably Willville, but it was earlier in the day than I wanted to stop riding my new-to-me motorcycle.

    I'm not sure if I've met Gaston Gagne or not. I know his username from ADV, and the name Phil rings a bell, but I'm not positive that he and I have met. He was probably one of the people I hung around the fire with Saturday night.

    He and Kevin (knybanjo) have met,though, and I think that they rode to Burke's Garden together Saturday.

    My username on ADV is the same as mine on here, BTW.

    That was me. My tow was just under 200 miles, though.

    The 1150GS parts bike is a long story, but I was glad to have it.

    The bike in this trip report is, essentially, my car.

    I'll let that twins comment slide -- this time. Remind me to tell you sometime when we meet up about how I met banjo -- twice.

    Consider this fair warning, then: I'm on spring break as of today.
