Cool Ride in and around Salem, Maybe Weekend Coastal Goodness??

Hello to all!

I'm Jay and I'm an experienced rider looking for company to join me on rides in and around the Salem area. I moved to Oregon a couple of years ago from Colorado and I'm used to canyon carving and mountain gazing.

I don't know about you, but to me, there's just nothing better than going on a ride and grabbing good food and a cold beer at a roadside dive along the way.

I know I'm new here, but I just wanted to get the feelers out there and see if anyone in my area is interested in getting together in the near future. If not, that's cool, I get it.

Thanks for reading! Cheers!!

P.S.- I'm also happy to swing on up to Portland and down as far Corvallis, as well as over to the coast between Coos Bay and Astoria.

Thumbs down

43 Views and no replies at all...weird. Ok then. Guess I'm not welcome here.

I was wrong. I had irresponsible expectations. Thank you to those who put me in my place, as I need that from time to time.

Easy there Pard. Lots of people reading and writing. Don't take offense. Welcome to the forum. Post up about rides you're taking or watch for others nearby. Lot of great rides out of Oregon City as the weather improves. Not too far for you to travel.

I'm in Oregon City.

I was going to reply, but thought I might be too far. Im also on a permit too so I need an escort. And Im not the most experienced rider. But I love bikes and riding. I just started a you tube channel too, showing what Im doing and where Im riding.

Im ready to ride and meet others who like to ride too.

Keep in mind posts are visible to public, hence lurkers (human) and crawlers (not human) can read them but can't respond. Salem section is a bit slow these days, that's all.

Salem is always a bit slow. Try heading over to Cycle Gear and asking if they know of any local rides. I haven't had a bike for a couple of years, otherwise I'd ride with you (hopefully another one before summer is over, but not sure yet).

Re; Lena and TimberMoto

Thanks guys, I was feeling a bit like a side show.

I'm going to Cycle Gear tomorrow to get some new pants anyways, so I'll make sure to ask about local rides while I'm there.

I'm one of the lurkers, and I'd ride with you, but I'm up on the peninsula in WA. You're more than welcome to come up to our first Sunday of each month bike night (That's the Kitsap section)

I do get down to northern part of OR for some good roads to ride once or twice a year. Actually, last year I didn't get down that way at all......

A fun short ride for you might be to head west to Dallas and then take Hwy 223 south. The last time I did this route I went all the way down to Hwy 20, then east to Corvallis for lunch and back up Hwy 99. Years ago, but the roads are the same.

Nice, yea, I can make it up there some time soon. I'll let you know when I can. Maybe 1st Sunday of May...or June. Thanks for the invite! I've been up in that area several times with my band, performing in Olympia and Port Townsend. Beautiful area.

I've driven those roads a couple of times, it's about time I rode them! There are so many awesome "backroads" here in Oregon. I've never been a fan of interstate riding.

Still waiting on somebody from the Salem area to respond and ride with. This thread is an open invitation to ride whenever you're available. I've already gone on rides with folks from Portland, McMinnville and soon Tri-Cities WA area. But really, I'm looking to make local friends more than anything.

I want to have a group of buds that want to ride somewhat regularly. Please get in touch if you live near Salem, have a motorcycle, and want to ride through the beautiful terrain this magnificent state has to offer. Don't be shy, I'm a good guy.

I'll head over to Blue Diamond on Tuesday, that is, if the shop can get my bike running right. Maybe I can check out Half Penny too. Thanks for the tips! Maybe I'll see you there...?
