Saturday Morning Coffee (SMC) 2016

Saturday Morning Coffee (SMC) 2016

Calling all riding enthusiast that are interested in meeting fellow riders in the Columbia Gorge, join us for Saturday Morning Coffee. Everyone is welcome, no matter how long you’ve been riding, if you’re experienced, just learning or want to learn. Whether you ride a sportbike, a cruiser, a standard, touring, trike, scooter, moped, or dual-sport ~ even a cage…

SMC is an opportunity to meet some of the other riders you wave to everyday on your way to work, you pass on a weekend ride and you nod to at the gas station. A chance to share stories, experiences, ask questions...offer advice or just chat. We always discuss, plan and setup weekend rides, trips and group events. If you want to ride with a group this is your chance, come meet the faces from the forum and friends ready to help.


Typical meeting schedule:

During the winter months (November thru April): During bad weather, few will show (if at all). Usually we’ll get despite and want to chat up motorcycle issues.

Riding season (May thru October): Every Saturday morning.

Meeting at:
Riverenza
401 E 10th St, The Dalles
09:00 to 10:30+/-

Speaking of......

Sound off. Who's showing for the 03/05 SMC? I'm in, plus we may have two new riders showing. If the weather is bad I'll be caging it

Centerville Hwy.

Hi Guys,
Wont' be making it to SMC this week as I'm heading back to the other side. Wanted to give you all a heads-up that Centerville Hwy. has had several speed traps. I found out the hard way on the 35mph section coming out of Lyle.. Stay safe!

Hey buffalo375, I hear that they put up speed traps every now and then up there, I hear that it's because of the road's proximity to the school in Lyle. Thanks for the heads up!

As for SMC, probably won't make it. Rain in the forecast and I'm just starting to feel a little better after a bout with some kind of cold bug. Wife is sick; and when momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!

By the way, they've salted the crap out of 142 between Lyle and Klickitat. I've got some corrosion/rust issues on the SV because of it. I'd stay off of 142 until the weather dries out.

Good turn out today plus the weather was (surprising) sunny & mild

Meet a new local rider and welcomed him to our little group, yeah!

Afterwards, I ran a little scoot on some local roads to blow the dust out of the exhaust

Great SMC! Good looking group of bikes. Such diversity, it must be a very welcoming and open group of riders.

Be safe out there this spring.

Hey!

Hi Mel,
Great to hear from you! Yes, guilty... I won't even mention the bike I was on when tagged, although for a hint, it grinds floorboards when turning.. Very much hoping to ride with you soon!
