Hey, bike nights have been visited by folks in cages. Get a chauffeur if you need one and come anyway. Hope for a speedy recovery.

Talking Beautiful ride
I'm a little late in letting everyone know that i made it to Spokane safe but i couldnt get to the internet. The ride through eastern oregon was beautiful and the weather couldnt be better. Other than a small cramp in my butt i handled my first long ride pretty well. The best part was heading through Diamond Lake with snow on both sides of the road four feet high. It got a little cold through there. Riding through the sunset in bend on friday night made for some awesome scenery. I stayed over in Prinville friday night and headed the second half of the trip to Spokane on Saturday. In all it took 13 hours to get here going through the beautiful eastern Oregon. I head back in the morning and it looks like the weather will hold up long enough for me to get home. Im going to head back the shorter way (only 8 hours) as i would like to get home in time to relax a little. This has been the perfect weekend to take a long adventure.

It's about time you checked in. Glad you made it and had a good ride. We'll be wanting details both hear (maybe a new thread) and at work. Congrats on your adventure.

Hello a pnw member told a friend of mine about this group so i checked it out...awesome to find a group in Roseburg. I ride a '73 CB500, been riding for about 9 years. My wife just finally got her endorsement after 3 years of riding on learners permits. She is riding an '08 260cc chinese import scooter that we got her new a few years ago. Looking forward to getting together for some rides.

I live in Roseburg and have been riding for only 1 year. I had my first (and hopefully last) wreck a week ago, Sunday. I got some road rash and the helmet did it's job. The fairing took a beating, so I'm looking for a replacement or the stock headlight/blinker assembly.

Welcome to the group! glad to hear your still kickin after your unscheduled stop. Kirkcdl would probably be the best person to talk to as he is a wizard when it comes to finding that kind of stuff. Most people would take the fairing off and make it a naked bike, which is a very viable option and probably much cheaper than replacing the fairing. If your not doing many highway miles you probably wouldn't miss the windscreen much...



I thought this was a joke as soon as I saw it, but apparently its not....http://thekneeslider.com

Hey,

My name is Daniel and I got my first motorcycle (07 Ninja 500r).
I just got my motorcycle permit and really need to spend time learning to ride my bike.
Are there any group rides I can join?
Any help is appreciated.

As the weather gets better, people will post up group rides, but honestly, group rides are no place to learn to ride (at least not in my oppinion), learn to ride at your own pace where you are not pressured to keep up, or riding close to others.

Best thing to do is take the Team Oregon safety course and go get your endorsement... Its worth every bit of the money even if you just take the intermediate course. Good job getting a smaller bike instead of jumping right to a 100+ hp monster!!

Team Oregon class is now mandatory for anyone under the age of 40 getting their endorsment for the first time. Next year it will be mandatory for anyone under 50 and for everyone the year after that.

I Ride: some Chinese plastic shit.
greetings ,
my hubby got me to register here, (fastidiots) so guess i should introduce my self. My name is bear. I have purple hair and i'm the eccentric aunt. I ride the Chinese thing in my picture... no i do not remember what its called it's that generic XD but it goes 80 and i don;t look like a hippo humping a beach ball while riding it. which is an important factor for me. I think it's call a zing-yu or some such... /shrug

i currently am a student at UCC studying music, and i'm a member of the SCA. i have more crafts and hobbies than any one person should, and the hubby and i are newly into the business of raising and breeding alpacas. We live in roseburg in the green district and are mostly just looking for others to go on lovely long rides with, others looking to train for the iron butt club ride challenge and other bike oriented fun stuff.

oh i'm also very dyslexic and hooked on phonics did NOT work for me so i apologize now.
so if your a grammer natzi " their, there, they're" everything will be ok, i promise.

so feel free to message me talk to me all that other fun stuff, i usualy am always up for a ride .... when not in school XD hee hee hee

Sorry for the late reply. The bike is in good shape; it was as well protected as me. The axle sliders and hand guard took 90% of the impact.

It happened on Clark's Branch, right after you get off Robert's creek.

I'm 2 weeks post surgery now and it was much worse than originally expected. I broke all 5 metatarsals, shattering the 5th. Shattered the cuboid and broke both sides of my ankle. About 12 bones busted, over 2 dozen total breaks; we lost count.

Exposed rod threading the 5th from toe to heel, pins in a few places and 2 screws per each side of the ankle.

Here's a few pictures (slightly graphic NSFW)

It would have been nice to ride with you all. I think I need to work on walking first, I'm partial weight bearing sometime mid July.
