Coast ride 4/28/19

Ducati Pacifica is meeting at SeeSee's on Sunday at 9 am and heading out towards Astoria. Can't find the info, going from memory, consider yourself warned.

It's a forum. If you don't know, then you're not in the 'in' crowd.
Lena, I'm tempted but don't have current tags on the Duc yet. I saw this on the forum, but thanks for posting anyway.

Hmmm...does one have to be on a Duc to join in the fun? I feel so offended My feeling is hurt. Guess I should just show up and ride. SeeSee's is cool tho.. thanx for posting an actual ride, Lena. Not very often these days that anyone posts a ride, let alone Lena. I feel blessed, in a way. Like i was picked first for dodgeball on the playground (of course i was always picked first; for football, and baseball, and dodgeball, and stickball, and basketball), by the kool kids. Yay.

I ended up in Astoria the other day after aiming for Clatskanie for Westport and the Cathlamet ferry, and enjoying the ride so much I missed the turn -- think I ignored the sign because I mistook it for the the one for Apiary and Rainier, which was actually quite a few miles back -- and found myself on 202. The older road surface and wrong landscape finally tipped me off a few miles later but I decided Astoria was a good place to hang on my first sunny day off this year.

Didn't see many bikes along the way but the ones i did see that weren't the inevitable Harleys tended to be yellow Duc Scramblers for some reason.

The ideal lunch/snack stop is Bowpicker if you want to eat next to your bikes, watch the ships and feel the breeze in your helmet-hair, but if it's insanely mobbed and you're looking at an eternal wait, as tends to be the case these days on weekends in good weather, consider the Custard King; there's room for a number of bikes right there next to the outdoor tables so you can still admire all your fresh springtime bugsplats while you eat. Food's good and there's a very 1970s road movie feel to it.

I don't know if one does need to be on a Duc these days or not, it's been a long while since I have ridden with that group and that kind of exclusivity is not what I would be after.
