I broke my wrist riding the Lolo Motorway on my way to Rocky Mountain Roll. Watch the playlist below to see how I broke it and how I escaped the woods.

Motos in Moab
Got to see all my favorite people at the Torque Wenches Silent Auction, and even got to unload a pair of saddle bags that didn't fit any of my bikes. Win Win.
Met up with a couple of my moto heroes at Two Stroke Coffee Co.; Justin W. Coffey and Kyra Sacdalan, the founders of Westx1000. They just completed a trip across the Southern half of the US on Indian Scouts, dubbed Scout’s Honor, which you can read about on Motorcyclist Online. They are some pretty inspiring people, I got to talk to them a little bit about The Pilgrimage, and Rocky MTN Roll and their upcoming trip to Europe.
Last but not least, Torque Wenches: Motos in Valhalla! A handful of us ( three on bikes two in a car) ventured out to Gateway, OR and up a gravel road to camp on the Deschutes river. We spent some time hanging out at the Kah-Nee-Tah Hot Springs with on of the awesome ladies of the Bend chapter of the Litas. We also went for a little excursion on the bumpy road out to Ashwood, OR. Good times and sunburns were had.
Marrissa Rose and I decided to go scout a campsite in central Oregon, that went from being a quick detour, to an all day and half the night ordeal. You can read more about it here.
Last but not least this month, I made it back to Montana once again to check up on Lazarus's progress. The little bit that I did get to ride Lazarus again (after a year and a half apart) just reinforced my love for this bike, and reminded me of all the reasons why I want to take this bike on the Pilgrimage this Summer. As if I didn't have enough projects, I brought a 1972 Honda CB175 back with me that's more project than bike. I think I'll name it Paul Bunyan (ha ha ha bad jokes about really big projects.)
The One Moto Show! I didn't even get to make it inside the building, but I had a great time hanging out with Hinterland Empire, and Delna ( @motorbikesandrollerskates ). That Saturday, I had the pleasure of joining the Torque Wenches and a few of our buds who came all the way down from Vancouver with their bikes.
