For the 09/15 SMC, I'll be at Holstein's Coffee Co. @ East 3rd Street. Usual time, 8:30 - 9ish.

Rains are creeping into the forecast, might be our last sunny weekend

Sounds good.

Maybe a Fossil run after coffee.

Still time for a mad dash down the backbone of the Cascades to Medford for a quick burger....

Just sayin.....

Great little run to Fossil today with Quixote

Had the roads to ourselves, temps ran from mid 60's to 70's. Asphalt is still clean except in the usual (expected) places. Fun filled pace You guys missed out

Quixote ~ thanks for grabbing the lunch bill!

This might be the last chance at a dry SMC although it may be on the cool side. So for the 10/14 SMC let gather at:

Petite Provence
408 E 2nd St, The Dalles
09:00

for old times sake.

Who's in?

Well, it was sunny but only 38 degrees. Ouch!

The Senator and I were the only ones that showed. We decided to shelve the ride until the afternoon. Had a nice little ride around the local roads to kill a few hours, then we got desperate and pulled out the pocket bike. Hooliganism followed....

Ha! No doubt.

On the plus side, when you crash it doesn't hurt and nothing gets damaged

Looks like we just had the final SMC of the year. Just a couple of us having coffee at the noisy PP. Then a final ride for me through some of my favorite corners. Cold & 43 degrees ~ sure!, wet leaves & other debris scattered throughout ~ no problem! Still felt good leaning off the bike

...(sigh)....it's going to be a long winter

Hello again all you mid Columbia riders. I'm back, just in time for winter. Doh! Well it's been an eventful year. Another IronMan done and in the books. Now I'm ready for spring of 2018 to meet up and ride a motorcycle (instead of my stupid Tri-Bike).

I'll check back here from time to time to see what's happening. I see we moved from the Riverenza to Petite Provence. I'll be there (or where ever) in the Spring.

Hope winter is short and you're all doing well.

Yo Jeff ~ I picked up a red R6 over last winter and spend a little time & cash setting it up. Also took it to the track once or twice. The hope is that boy #2 will take it off my hands as his permanent ride but if he doesn't, I'll enjoy having it in the stable.

Over the winter, SMC still takes place from time to time but its very haphazard. Only a few up us crazies seem to want to talk about bikes while there's a foot of snow outside If you're interested in joining in, shoot me a PM with your phone number and I'll keep you posted (by txt).

Winter solstice in The Gorge.

When the "crazies" gather at winter SMC, the rides of summer are forged over cups of scalding coffee. You should be there.

Armed with dog-eared maps, curiosity and hubris, lonely mountain roads are strung together like pearls on a string to make those thousand mile "riders' rides".

From Happy Camp to Hayfork, from Sumpter to Rattlesnake, next year's twisties are lying in wait to test our mettle.

C'mon Jackal, time to start the "2018 Saturday Morning Coffee" thread, we have work to do....

Merry Christmas Riders,

Quixote
