Friday Coastal run from Tigard

Hey all,

So since all the planets have aligned properly, my bike's back from her 36k and I'm salty I've got to get out. Haven't been on a ride since watching Northern California literally catch on fire behind me as I rode down to Highway 1 late last year.

As I don't like too much traffic I'm leaving really early Friday morning and seeing how much frost is on 219 from here to Newberg at about 6:30 or 7:00. From there I dunno, maybe take a run down to Champoeg first to check out the speedo, make sure its' still accurate if you get my meaning, wouldn't want to disturb any LE on a fine Friday morning. Afterwards I'll head to the coast with the idea of lunch in Pacific City or somewhere thereabouts with Northerly or Southerly coastal route home to follow as needed/desired and/or weather permitting. Current forecast is for temps in the 50s and overcast, but I wouldn't be surprised to see rain OR Sun especially on the beach.

I'm an old guy on a bagged up Tiger 800 so pace will NOT be a problem, but on the other hand I don't stop a lot so as to cover a lot of miles. I generally take a good bit of kit with me so as to remain comfortable and such and among that lot is an air pump and a thermos of hot coffee as well as a Rotopax full of gas. Won't probably get much off-roading done due to snow but I "might" pop up a forestry road or two for giggles.

No takers, huh?

Ah well see lots of 101 tomorrow. Looks great for dawn at Champoeg, then South to 34 and over to the beach. Alsea summit not projected to freeze overnight bodes well and I’ll be about midway by lunch time, right where I need to be. Plenty of trouble to get into on a Tiger anywhere near the Tillamook basin, just gotta watch the altitude when solo on gravel.

Would love to join you, but this work thing - to pay for bikes that sit in the garage - gets in the way.

Post up again and if you alright with weekend work, I'll try and join ya.
