Went for a little ride in Oregon last week...

It felt like time to go for an annual motorcycle ride in OR with my good buddy and his fam so I managed to ditch work and get some miles on my bike. Unlike the BigCham, who covered much of the western states, I simply trailered my bike to Oregon and tried to cover every road in that state with twisty pavement!

Day 1 was South and Central mountains up to Hood on backroads and back to Salem. Day 2 was on the west coast up to Tillamook and back to Salem. Then we headed East for the rest of the week, covering roads across the state. Notable stops included Clarkston, Palouse Falls, Fossil, and about a hundred more places and little towns along the way.

The smoke was bad is some places, awful in others, and clear and beautiful for one day east of Walla Walla on Friday. Much of the state has been burned in the last couple years and it was a little disappointing to see. Whole valleys and mountains scorched everywhere. It's not the green Oregon I remember riding just a few years ago.

Needless to say, besides the unhealthy and unavoidable smoke hazard present this year, it is simply a beautiful state to ride in and enjoy the roads off the beaten path.

Back to work.

Hope y'all get a chance to enjoy some time on your bikes this summer and the thrill of riding and living in such a beautiful area of this country!
