Another Sat, Another ride?

It seems that the weather is improving and a ride 10/7 or 10/8 might be in order.

Got some place in mind?

We've got Jeff, Ernie & Pauline, and Dayle & I so far. We're meeting at the McMenamins' Cornelius Pass Roadhouse parking lot at 9:30 a.m. That's at 4045 N.W. Cornelius Pass Rd, just south of Highway 26 in Hillsboro.

The plan is to head down 6 to the Tillamook Cheese Factory for lunch, then wander down the coast. Dayle and I will be staying in Newport Saturday night, but others will wander back across according to their own time and preferences.

Should be in the high 60s, with a 20% chance of rain. Perfect riding weather.

Anyone is welcome, just meet us in the morning, or in Tillamook around 11:30-12:00. My cell is 805-302-9122.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That's what I figured. Wish we could head north to meet you guys, but we've got to be in Newport tonight. Another time, Brian.

Maybe you can hook up with Darrel?

Red face Gonna miss this one!

Sorry gang, but I just don't think I'll make it back up there in time for this Coastal ride. I'm down in Santa Clarita visiting my relatives this weekend. About 975 miles away! But we should make the one next weekend in Vancouver. I found out yesterday that I am too old to play Iron Butt. 800 miles about whupped this butt, so I had to park it for the night last night about 8:30 PM at a Hotel & finish the ride this morning. Boy did that rest feel good! These old joints are just too stiff after that many miles in the saddle. Kudos to those of you still doing the IB thing, but it ain't me no more!

Enjoy the ride!

John,

We missed you today! Along with Brian, Art, Dan, Denny and the host of all other NW riders that missed a beautiful day at the coast.

We met at 09:30 (or there abouts) at the Old Road House just off 26. Jeff started out by letting Ken and Dayle ride his GT to Tillamook where we had lunch at the creamery. Ken toyed with the GT and kept the traffic behind him whenever and wherever there was barely enough room to pass. Good boy Ken. We then rode to Newport where Ken and Dayle pealed off for their stay, and Jeff and I traded bikes for about 60 miles or so. Gawd that sure is fun! Thanks Jeff. We blasted over to Eugene to register for our 100k BMW award at Western BMW and then tripped home. We did stop at John Barleycorns for dinner with Jeff. A great day and a short 398 miles to add to the 2006 total. I guess I'll have to stay home and stain the deck tomorrow.

Dang!!! I finally got around to fixing a broken heated grip yesterday. If I only would have had the mental fortitude to continue my procrastination.

Glad you had a great time! Wish I had been there!

I've been really bad about checking the site to see what is going on. I spent Saturday doing lots of misc. stuff including partially servicing Marcia's 94 750 Vulcan. Sunday we spent a couple of hours putting around the hills south of us. That was the first time on the open road for her and it is a great place for turns without much traffic. She did very good even in the rain. I think I was more nervous than she was. In fact, I headed home and she turned into a parking lot. When I went back to find out what was wrong she said that she was having way to much fun to go home yet.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for dinner next weekend.

Conservative? I thought you were way to Lib to even utter the word I think you were doing a great job waiting up for us slow-pokes. Pauline and I had a great time on Jeff's GT too. The acceleration is a lot of fun. I wanted to ride it harder, but there was a guy on a Green LT breathing down my neck out there, so I thought I'd better cool it down a bit.

See you all Saturday night. I should have another thou on the odom by then.
