Saturday Morning Coffee (SMC) 2017

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.

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 March): During bad weather, few will show (if at all). Usually we’ll get despite and want to chat up motorcycle issues.

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

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

We'll be here keeping the roads in proper shape (or wearing them out). Hit me up if you need some routing ideas. This riding season is going to be busy, already developing plans

just chiming in to keep up to date.

Lena, I'll probably put something together for out in the gorge again, but likely won't be till next year, as this summer has a couple extra trips involving planes added already. But ya never know, haha. If I get anything put together for up there this year, it would have to be in July. JoBeth and I had a great time last summer - wish some of the other gals could have made it as well.

Since you quit the book of faces I haven't seen the drama happening in your Paddock.

"Well, SMC is off to its usual start. At least we're consistent."

Thanks to all who chose to brave the sand and the wind to make the "official" SMC opening. Local roads are a little dirty, particularly around the intersections, but all in all, pretty good. Made it as far as Grass Valley on the back roads.

I see a Fossil run in the near future.

Made it to Grass Valley today myself on 216. I was surprised to see how good the roads were today.

Good turnout for a windy/sunny morning, only one cager showed [Quixote] ~ yeah, I ratted you out!!

One of us was so desperate to ride, the inner MacGyver was summoned to make their ride functional

During SMC, future riding plans were hatched and well as the dilemma of the Triumph parts pipeline Coffee was good as always.

Afterwards, the rest of us enjoyed a short run around the hills, was good to ride as a group again. Cornering was clean and spirited. Most of us are building trust with new suspension(s) and tires.

If anybody is interested, or knows somebody who might be, in getting some good used gear for cheap, I am unloading a couple of leather jackets (one really cool Kobe (wish I could find another) and a couple years old but never worn Bilt), some good gloves and a couple of helmets (one Arai and one KBC). All going cheap.

Figured I'd post for locals first before I broadcast on the usual web pages.

PM w any questions. Will gladly text pics if requested.

Am sure I'll see you all again this spring.

Thanks.

Thanks Bugaboo, hopefully if any of the locals need some gear that they are in contact with you. Don't be a stranger, ride in to SMC when you get a chance.

Speaking of....... has anybody noticed the good weather for Saturday?!

ladies and gentlemen, start your engines
