Page 2 Event Information Mount St Helens National Volcanic Monument Ride – Russ Darr: Russ Darr, a retired geologist and club member is leading this ride. Itll be via paved roads on one of the highest rated motorcycle roads in the state, SR504 to Loowitt Viewpoint at an elevation of 4000 feet and only 5.5 miles from the volcanic dome. Here you will hear about the changes that have taken place since the 1980 eruption. Some of the riders may wish to proceed 1 mile to the Johnston Ridge Visitors Center. This requires a pass or $8.00 per person. There is food available in the parking lot or you may wish to bring food with you. A box lunch can be purchased at the fairgrounds. For those not wishing to go to the Visitors Center, you will take a 1 mile hike and see a beaver dam and lodge on the Hummocks Trail. The ride will return to Menlo in time for dinner. Please wait at all intersections for the person behind you!!!!!! Don't spoil the ride for everyone behind you. Russ Darr: I am a retired geologist and a docent with the Mount St Helens Institute. I have spent two weeks studying under the various lead scientists working in the Monument each year for the last 5 years. This is the same training the US Forest Service Interpretive Rangers take except when I am the trainer. During the last 5 summers, I have enjoyed over 500 hours on the Mountain, sharing information with thousands of visitors. Packing and Preparing your Adventure for the Ride of a Lifetime - Wayne Elston of South Sound BMW: Ive had the pleasure of putting more than a quarter million miles on Big-Bore Boxer Beemers, and have loved every minute of it. Ive also been blessed with opportunities to go far and wide both riding, and being trained to ride these big bikes more effectively. The Adventure Touring lifestyle is one I participate in, and highly endorse. Going fly-fishing on my motorcycle is also a great pleasure of mine, and I attempt it as often as possible. I have the greatest job in the world– selling motorcycles at South Sound Motorcycles and instructing local riders. Always remember – Ride Fast, Take Chances. All You Ever Wanted To Know About Sidecars-Doug (Sidecar Doug) Soderlund: I first rode as a passenger in a sidecar at age 14 when one of my brothers bought a /2 with a Jupiter car. Five years later, I got my first motorcycle and have not been without one since that time. I did not own a car until I was 25 and married. I bought my first sidecar rig in '98, a Russian Ural Tourist. In '02, I upgrade to my current rig, putting my Ural sidecar on a 92 R100R. Over the years, my rig has picked up a leading link front end, a second set of wheels for dual sport tires, and reinforcement to the frame. (It turned out BMW was right that the current frames are not up to sidecar use.) I use the rig for solo travel as well as with my family and the dog. I spend as much time as I can on the Forest Service roads, getting the bike dusty or muddy depending on the time of the year. A Gal on the Salt – Barbara Brooks: Barbara established a new Land Speed Record in the Vintage Production Pushrod 500cc class last year at Bonneville. First we watched Anthony Hopkins roar down the beach on his Indian. Then the guys couldnt stop talking about Bonneville, and breaking a few records with the Beemers. So they went, and they did. And I thought, What the Heck? Where are the gals in all of this? So I began a serious whine campaign
Page 3 Event Information India Butt Busters-Steve and RuthAnn Reynen, Depere, Wisconsin: We were introduced to motorcycles in Kenya, East Africa, when we were serving in the US Peace Corps. We first rented a moped while on holiday in Mombasa and then rented a Triumph Tiger Cub before buying our first bike--a bright orange Honda 175 Scrambler. In 1971, after our Peace Corps service was completed, we opted to ride the bike across Africa and fly home from Dakar, Senegal. We were without a bike for a few years until we bought a Honda CB350 in Algeria in That bike ferried us around North Africa and Europe before we shipped it back to the States. Our first BMW was a 1985 K100RS (now semi-retired with 251K+ miles). Two seasons of two-up camping brought an R65LS into the fold for RuthAnn to ride and we both have been riding solo since then. We now have about 750,000 BMW miles between the two of us and a garage full of BMWs. In the fall of 2008 we spent nine weeks in India and Nepal, five of them on Royal Enfield 500cc Bullets. Our riding partners there were Iron Butt veterans Jean and Ross Copas. Our latest overseas foray was Down Under in Australia and New Zealand this past winter. We did a one week bike trip in Australia, then spent four weeks exploring New Zealand on BMW F650GSs. We are currently prepping two new G650GSs for a trip through Mexico and Central America to the tip of South America beginning in October. Someone asked us why we do these long trips; we can because we are retired and love to travel--especially on two wheels. Preventing Further Injury at a Crash Scene – Rick Wallace: In this seminar Rick will present what to do at the scene of a motorcycle crash so that more injuries do not occur! How to secure the scene, make yourself visible, protect evidence, and most of all keeping yourself from becoming a victim too. Ricks first presentation will be held Thursday evening and for those of you that missed that one, he will do an encore on Saturday morning. Or attend both sessions. Rick Wallace: I have worked as a Fire Fighter/Paramedic for 35 years and have taught and coordinated courses for EMTs and Paramedics. I have also taught CPR, First Aid, and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) courses for the public. I am a certified Lead Instructor for Accident Scene Management, Inc. (ASMI). I enjoy teaching people skills that will allow them to protect themselves, and to be confident and comfortable while assisting others with traumatic injuries. Mug & Muffin with Peggy Zaring: Peggy will be hosting an informal gathering Friday and Saturday morning at 9am to give the ladies some time to visit and get to know each other. A few of the topics Peggy will be covering is; riding attire, and packing for campouts and trips. Bring your favorite morning beverage and enjoy.
