Leaving Friday and heading south. Not sure where yet but this may be the last good weekend and the weather down there is supposed to be pretty good.

Man I wish!

Soccer season is in full swing and my last trip used up all my passes for the year. It's all day rides the remainder of the season.

Have fun down there, reports have that area in prime riding conditions the next few days. Please take lots of pics and post here for all of us to enjoy :cool2:

It's looking like a great weekend for a late seaon 3 day ride. Unfortunately, I have a full work day tomorrow, or I would join you.

I think I am headed for NW Oregon on Saturday morning, then headed for home on Sunday morning.

Leaving for a month in SE Asia next friday... :jumping41

No, that is true, but my wife and my boss both do!

Have a great trip!

Work always gets in the way. I have been trying to figure out how to get paid to just ride around for ever, but I can't figure it out.

Nathan

So I got back around 1:00, now I am trying to figure out how to post pics. Any one help me out?

I disagree with you Mitch.

:cool: = cool (according to the icon)

I was out of town over the weekend, and read the whole thread at once. The :cool: was my brief comment on a nice weekend ride.

I guess you thought I was in favor of the vigilante justice references? (which, for the record, I'm not)

I have his plate number but I am not sure what to do since I gave him the finger first.

Oh and by the way. Hwy 126 out of Eugene kicks ass. It starts out along the McKensie river and by the top of the pass it's 100 mph sweepers. Total blast and almost no traffic!!!

I came across those on the Umpqua river just outside Reedsport on hwy 38. It was some sort of Elk viewing place. The funny thing is that I saw them as I was coming down the road so I pulled over and took a few pics, get back on the bike a ride about 300 yards and there is a herd of 50+ on the side of road but I had already stoped so I just kept going. Thats also a nice hwy to ride!

Sounds like the same place we pulled over to view the elk, it was day 4 of our ride and I was starting to get a little delirious I think? :rolleyes:

The viewing are is just behind and to the left - with the elk out of site behind.

Exact same place. They must get a lot of people there because the elk didn't even bat an eye.
