My last  store of the year.  Grand opening in Lebanon Oregon.  Number 264.  Word on the street is I get to go to Loveland,  Denver and Colorado Springs next year.  All have to do it on a new bike.  I think Moose has taken his last ride.

Lincoln city

It was difficult to get this photo.  Selling coffee like nobody's business.  Lincoln City.  #dutchtreatride #dutchbroscoffee #dutchbros 

We're getting close!

Finally!  A store with slow traffic and I could talk with the crew.  Silverton is #262.  #dutchtreatride #dutchbroscoffee #dutchbros 


As has been the case this whole trip, Dutch Bros. is selling a boat load of coffee.  Barely had time to take this picture.  107 Molalla Abe in Oregon City.  #dutchtreatride #dutchbroscoffee #dutchbros 


My 260th store.  The Lloyd Blvd  coffee house is sweet!


Kyle was my barista in Monmouth.  DB259 in E. Vancouver.

My first Big Ride

15 years ago today I completed my first Bun Burner Gold.   A BBG requires you to ride 1500 miles in under 24 hours.  Mass Gold walls and organized ride hosted by a group of Raleigh masters known for their unorthodox rally formats in Nevada.   I know I get thanks to the Cognoscenti Group for introducing me endurance motorcycle riding.

W. State St. Boise.

I love the indoor outdoor seating of the store.  Last of the night.  If I had more time I'd enjoy a Basque dinner.

Things I thought I'd never see


Hwy 299.  One of California's great roads.  It runs East- West in the north for the length of the state.  Twisty-turnies West of I-5.  Long, sweeping turns and fast straights on the East.  Happy is happy.  Of course he usually is.

Anderson California

Nine cars in line and two at the walk up window I got here.  There's money in coffee.

Dixon California

Number 250.  Got here just in time for the morning rush.

Fresbros, CA

#249.  I was late and didnt get here for swing shift.  Kelli and Allicin were okay with that.
