At the tech day...with the MT. Airheads Flag in its' rightful place.
The ride to Missoula was very windy and a struggle at some points. When the wind hits from the left, along with a sloping road it takes a certain amount of effort to keep the rig going in a straight course.

Some great river road riding between Lincoln and Missoula
Pulling into Missoula....the driver with a stupid look on his face.

Leaving Missoula Saturday morning we headed north towards Kalispell, then west towards Paradise.
Traveling along the Flathead River
We arrived at the "Tech Day" location at about 11:00am. Quite a few attendees. Numerous small repair / maintenance projects were in progress. Below is MT. Air Marshal John Werre's BMW and Jupiter sidecar. John's rig is pretty much original condition. My old rig has had the frame modified and was missing original lighting, badges and wind screen hardware.
A lot of observers during repair sessions
I had a couple of "Airheads" Stickers with me so offered one to Terry from Washington. He was riding a very nice Plum colored BMW GS.
The weather forecast was for rain on Sat. night and Sunday so we planned on heading towards home Saturday. Upon starting my bike preparing to depart some serious back firing issues were apparant. I decided to take a few minutes and perform a quick valve adjustment...elapsed time about 15 minutes plus or minus...
The sidecar makes right side engine work a bit more of a challange.
We pulled out at 2:30 pm and were in the rain immediately...didn't last long.
Just outside Bonner MT. sign read ; "watch for Big Horn Sheep"...sure enough there were three watching for us....the third one was closer and out of the photo.
