My mastery of Latin is terrible. Does your quote mean that the gods want to destroy all Priuses or that the Gods Put those into priuses that they want to destroy?

600 Mile Service
Made it to Portland and back today on the new Beemer. It was time for the 600-mile service. I'll be at my first SMC (in a while) tomorrow.

An "interesting" ride today, but certainly worthwhile.
Dawg showed up on his new Beemer, and after a quick SMC we headed east. OR 206 was uneventful through Condon, and it just got better heading through Rock Creek Canyon. One of us lost their shift linkage in the canyon, but we backtracked and found it.
OR 74 over Franklin Summit was clean and fast, and US 395 was very nice through Battle Mountain. Lunch at The Thicket in Ukiah was good, and Dan is still pumping gas at his Ukiah station (Hang in there Dan, we need you to stay open).
The minor mechanical issues plus a 5,000 calorie burger tempered our enthusiasm, and we opted to chance FSR 53 from Ukiah back to Heppner. Wow. The road was clean, snow free (just a little in the ditches) and deserted. Never saw a LEO or a bad driver all day.
The ride home was uneventful, and I clocked 338 miles from The Dalles and back; just right for a summery day. Thank you guys for your patience and persistence, and Good Riding to You All.
P.S. The party's over. The next rides will start earlier in the day; we'll meet for quick coffee six-thirty...ish and head even father south and east. We may be in Post or Paulina before too long.

Hood River, OR
2012 Kawasaki Concours
Unfortunately, I'm going to miss my 2nd and 3rd consecutive SMC & ride.
However I won't be missing any riding. I'm headed to Sioux Falls South Dakota to visit a motorcycle buddy and I'll be on the road for about 10-12 days. I hope to get in 5K over that time. Weather will dictate how much road time I get to enjoy.
Keep the PNW roads warmed up for me guys. I'll be back in the area by the end of the month. I'll post some pictures along the way to torment you all

I think that destroying the Priuses would be a better idea.

For 05/14 SMC, we had a small group make the Mount Hood run up NF-48 & NF-44. Clean roads and some cooler fresh air, just what the doctor ordered to help with the allergies.
