    THIS is Oregon:)

    One of dozens of Volcanoes and a neat trail to the top of one. Don Burns and I share a rare picture, our bikes and he in this one. This is the Cascade Range just East of Salem, nearer to Redmond. A clear day here reveals maybe 3-4 volcanoes within sight. This trail happens to be GSA friendly, almost no pumice soft terrain that kills these bikes handling. Nice day and we reunite this year, as Don comes to Salem to ride again, meet up, his bike, "WARTHOG" out of Colorado Springs, 1150GSA. RandyGSA1200.

    Oregon:)

    I don't live in state but nearby in Cal.. I've never been disappointed riding Oregon. This is near Tillimook, coastal loop, West of Hwy101. Oregon Coast is Awesome. This little road byway is a narrow one laner in places and so worth discovering. You can see in this pic. Randy

    This that island seaward of Tillamook? I did 101 from Clatsop south a couple years back - rode the little narrow road and overnighted in Oceanside. The local eatery got a group of
    Buell Ulysses (made near me in WI) riders while we were there...

    ...I had a grand time on that coast and will be back...

    Yes:)

    This is the only byway West of Tillamook, easy to find. I keep spelling that town wrong, sorry. Tillamook is correct. Unless they improved that road, it gets slightly narrow in sections. A fun time. Randy

    The "Capes" are a must see.

    Get out of Tillamook on hwy 131 west and see Cape Lookout / Cape Kiwanda / Netarts Bay and Pacific City.
    If you're lucky you can catch the flat bottom Dory Boats sliding in on the surf and onto the beach right next to my FAVORITE pub... Pelican Pub Brewery. I spent a ton of time out there while my son was stationed at the USCG rescue station in Garibaldi, north of Tillamook.

    Holy cow! I didn't even realize the Pacific City Dory Festival is July 20 - 21.

    This is a great time of year in the Beaver State. Blue bird days, High temps yesterday in Portland in the low 80s but it cooled down in the evening into the mid 50s.
    See you next week

    Given the issues with temps in other parts of the country, maybe the rally should be permanently sited in the Northwest. Temp forecast for the end of next week in Bremerton is highs in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s. There's a nice county fairgrounds between there and Silverdale. Slightly cooler for the Bellingham area.
