A long hiatus

Wow, it’s been a while since I was last on here. My bike is mostly put away for the season. If I can get a jacket and pants that are better for ‘winter weather’ in Oregon, I will probably extend my season, but for now, it at least has to be relatively dry for me to ride And this time of year, that isn’t likely.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take advantage of all of the nice days in September, October and November, but I managed to get about 4,000 miles on my bike this year, pretty good I think. There are some improvements that I would like to make, starting with replacing the rear turn signals; they are having some issues. Then I think stainless-braid brake lines, then who knows. I like the performance of the motor, and don’t really want to mess with tuning too much, cause I don’t want to hurt the economy.
Anyways, I think that’s all I got right now….later ya’llDecember 2, 2010 at 4:25 am #28869eonParticipant
Glad to hear from you again. Yeah, though we can ride all winter in this part of the country the real fun days are over for a while. Roads are too cold, wet, sandy to have too much fun. Still, beats having to hibernate for 4 months like a lot of folks do.
You need to get out more and enjoy those great Oregon roads. I plan on getting down there more often next year. I still haven’t ridden around the Gorge yet. I did briefly hit the NW portion as I headed down to Cannon Beach one weekend. That Highway 47 was a lot of fun as was the road into Astoria. Very very bumpy but was still a lot of fun.
Oregon and BC, that’s my plan for next year!December 2, 2010 at 4:32 am #28870madjak30Participant
I just checked the odometer on my bike…9100kms (5685 miles)…and that was with a very rainy summer, so if it is nice next year…look out…I’m already planning on taking an extra week of holidays (I have the option to buy time off at work) so that I can do a few long weekend trips that aren’t really long weekends for everyone…next year is gonna be a great one…provided the weather plays along…

Funny that you talk about riding more down here, cause I was wanting to ride more up there in Washington, but there are a lot of fun roads left in Oregon that I haven’t even gotten near.
