As much as I really want to ride today, I'm going to bow out.

The roads don't look horrible, but they are still a little damp up in NoPo. With the temps still around freezing, I'm going to wait a few hours before venturing out.

Thanks for leading, Lee, great route, as always. The challenge for me this year was not so much the cold but the icy spots but we survived!

Yes, Lee. Excellent leading. You stopped just when I was going numb. And, you didn’t race through the potentially slippery areas (though I know you could have), so we all had an enjoyable, safe ride.

It was a great way to start the new year!

My respects to the brave ones.

I ended up staying home (though I did occasionally look out the window with a Hot Toddy).

Totally digging the KLR with the sidecar and solar panel! Very cool.

Dang, tried to find this thread before yesterday...headed out solo nonetheless.

Great weather and the heated gloves kept me smiling for the 120 mile Papa Bear Run. Started with a group of guys out of Gresham (had a gear logo on the back). We split at the Skyline stop... I then caught in with a group of BMW's on Spring Hill Road...this was the best part of the ride. Two lane back county with great sunshine, hills, sweepers, all the fun stuff.

Left them at Newburg and went on with one other BMW through Wilsonville, Ek Rd., and up to Oregon City.

Good times.

I parked my 2017 KLR next to him at the start. Lots of stuff on that ride.

That looked like a great day for a ride with some old faces I've not seen in a while. I'm usually out of town on New Year's, so have never had a chance. Thanks for sharing pictures.
