Wanting To Ride

Hello. My name is Michael and I have an R6. I am wanting to ride, but I only have a learners permit. I forfeited my Motorcycle license about 6 years ago moving from California thinking I would never ride up here. Things have changed
Anyway I’m in Oregon city and would love to tag along if anyone is interested.

Welcome! I'm not close by any means, but good on you for wanting to get out and ride! I can't believe how many I know like your roomie who have a nice bike but prefer to sit on there ass and play video games rather than enjoy something far more enriching...real life!

Welcome, I did the same thing, didn't transfer my mc endorsement back in 92, then wished I had a year later.

So I did the learners permit thing.

I was worried, when I went down for the full test, that I'd get asked where my other rider was. (I never had one)

But I took the test in december when it was 40 degrees and the tester just wanted back inside, so I had an very abbreviated test.

I'm in Milwaukie, so when Lee650 starts the Thursday rides, I can swing by OC and ride with you to the ride, and ride with you back back to OC.

You'll be fine anywhere in the pack during the ride, as you can point to anyone as your 'escort'.

Hey thanks guys!
Basically ready when you are. I hope to have my license in a few weeks and look forward to these Thursday meets.

I attempted ripplebrook on Tuesday afternoon, but it turned into a gravel road just about the time it started getting good, up closer to the station. The road has not been swept yet.

Here’s my number if you want to contact me directly.

News like this really upsets me. Street Triples were born to wheelie! Their soul stirring sound meant to echo off of river canyon walls. To leave one trapped in a garage on a sunny day is nothing short of abuse!

Tell me about it.... It’s been sitting for the last couple days during all this awesome weather weve been having. Will probably sit all day today too. And what gets me the most is he just got it a few months back so it’s still new to him.

I would sleep with my bike if I could, I just don’t understand this type. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll meet some like minded folks here.

Hey Michael!

My roommate and I ride (I've got a Street Triple 765 and he's got a 600 ninja). We're not too far from you in SE Portland. Shoot me a PM and I'll send you my contact info!

I'm chomping at the bit to ride too! But I have yet to move my moto up here, as I've been having to move up here in chunks. It's a situation I'm fixing next weekend. Then it's game on!
