Saturday Sunday rides

Saturday I wasnít really planning a ride just left LaCenter to go fill up at Woodland. Took old pacific highway to get there and passed a sign pointing to Yacolt/Amboy. After fill up I decided to go to Amboy then down 503 to 14 then back home. The way to Amboy goes through a lot of treed areas and pretty soon I had to stop and put on a heavy sweater. Through Amboy South on 503 headed toward SR14 I got to Brush Prairie look to the west at a huge array of black clouds heading toward me. Wasnít going to chance that especially since my 83 Suzuki Gs 1100 has NEVER been rained on. Looped through BP and headed back home. Up my driveway to the shop,I opened the door and rode in literally seconds before the deluge hit. Spent some time cleaning up the bike and waiting out the rain finished that days ride.Today I decided to go over to Ridgefield then south on various county roads to end up around the fairgrounds,then home.A shorter day.I was amazed at all the new developments all around.I used to be the only Qwest telephone installation tech there and the additional 500+ homes made quite a difference in what was a collection of single family farms.Continuing south on 51st I wound my way to 179th at the far west end. Heading east to I5 is an up and down hilly area,kind of reminded me of when I cruised the area in my phone service truck. I beat the hell out of that thing for 8 years and it took it. Got close to the fairgrounds and got stuck for a short time by the mass exodus from the fairs last day. Back home and tucked in the shop I did a little bit of cleaning. Weekend rides done,no problems. Good days.Next Iím heading for Backfire at Seattle in the sodo area. Should be fun.
