Cougar-Carson Sun 8/8 Jantzen Beach Chevron 1030/11

I'll be doing a break-in ride on Sunday 8/8 on my new BMW R1250GS ADV so the pace will be more friendly than the Wednesday Ride, although I would still not call this ride "beginner friendly." Pace will be moderate (faster in the corners). We will wait at all junctions so nobody is left behind. I would not call the ride "cruiser friendly" but I have seen some exceptions over the years so if you like grinding hard parts and putting on a fireworks show come in out!

We will meet at the Jantzen Beach Chevron at 1030 a.m. and kick stands go up at 11.

We should be in Carson around 3 and riders will have the option of lunch and continuing east for Cook Underwood and the Rowena Loop or you can bail back to Portland if they want to get back early. I plan to be back in Portland before dusk.

Let's ride!

Mind the potholes on NF-90, they can be hard to spot on a sunny day with the high contrasting shadows of the overhead leaves. I nailed one so hard on my rear wheel on a curve that my factory topcase popped off and went bouncing down the road ahead of me ended up in a ravine. Got a small flat spot on my one edge of my rim, which fortunately doesn't seem to affect it.
