Short Notice Ride, Saturday, July 25, 2020

I'm meeting up with some friends for a ride to Seaside, Oregon for lunch. We're meeting up in Longview. At 1030. KSU at ~1045.
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ch....9358604?hl=en

Feel free to tie in with us there. The route takes us on some of the nicest, most twisty roads between Longview and the Northern Oregon coast. This is a long run; 10 hours round trip ride time, back to Federal Way, by the route I plan on taking. Should one get tired, one can knock off an hour or more by slabbing it on the return trip.

If you'd like to ride down with me, meet here. KSU at 0745. I will likely be only 15 minutes early.

The pace will be polite in the neighborhoods (read, houses everywhere), relaxed in the straights (enjoy the scenery), and fast in the twistys.

Not enough dirt for me I'll be heading to Walker Valley at the break of day. Where the mood will be stop, or wide open...wait, somewhere in there is braking and sliding, just not sure where.

Tempting.... If I’m not riding dirt tomorrow, I very well may aim for Longview to chase curves with y’all.

Compared to Dave, I got to sleep in. If anyone wants to meet us in Longview, post up and we'll be sure to wait up.

My bad, I was 10 mins late. No worries on everyone KSU. I think I saw y'all at a Seaside brew pub, outdoor seating, perfect view of the 2 mph bumper to bumper traffic. I rode thru Mist and took 202 to Astoria, met a couple riders at the 202/47 interchange, rode with them to Astoria, had lunch under the bridge at a little Mexican restaurant. Made the mistake of heading south on 101 to Tillamook, then Hwy 6. Nasty traffic. Made good time from about the 15 mile mark on, till the bumpy section of 6 by Gales creek. That 4 mile stretch of road is brutal. I won't be using that road anytime soon...but 47 from Clatskinie to 202 is THE SHIT. Great stuff, hope y'all had a good run and no bad things happened.

By the way, anyone/everyone know about Caslaw? I heard from one of the dudes I rode with today, he's Fucked Up. Chris..if you're reading this, my sympathies and glad you're still breathing. I'd say "get well soon", but that's a cliche' and I won't go there. But dude, hang in there, we're all thinking about you. Stay up dawg...

Craiger I'm so sorry. I should have checked the website when I arrived at the Chevron. We ended up leaving a little later than planned anyway, so we could have waited a few extra.

My sincere apologies for not double checking.

We had four. TJRace, Oldmanriver, Curveaddict and myself. A good size group, but definitely had room for more.

It was a pleasure meeting TJRace, and always a good time riding with Curveaddict.

Overall we had a fun, yet safe and sane ride.

Nice to meet you guys and thanks for letting me tag along! Good route and good times! Sorry for my hasty departure but the clock was ticking. I hope my tapping at my imaginary wrist watch successfully communicated my thought process.

^ Yes. Good to meet you as well.

Been home a while. Round trip, 515 miles. I'm pooped.

Edit: We ran Mist--Clatskanie each way. Happy!
