    Location: 76 station on HWY 213. & Clackamas River Dr in Oregon City
    Pace will be moderate, but this isn't a "newby friendly" ride due to the route and roads. By moderate, I mean we will be riding brisk in the corners and cruising the straights not track day pace, but still fun. We won't leave anyone behind.
    This is a 320 mile ride so plan for all day.

    I rode to Detroit - Breakfast - Home on Sunday. Left at 7:15 Am, but no matter how hard I rode i could not catch you guys. There was little traffic, I think because of the clouds people stayed home. It was nice once you got past Estacada. How was the added run over to Sweet Home?[​IMG][/IMG]

    We had a mellow ride. M-E-L-L-O-W 8)
    We only went to Detroit, had lunch, then turned and rode back. None of felt up to the extra miles of continuing to Sweet Home and back.

    It was a beautiful day, great ride, and no incidents. Didn't find any video this trip, but I hear there was a video found on Saturday's ride to Windy Ridge :ninja:

    Busas are only fast if there is a Starbucks down the road (or the daughter on the back has to pee) :evil4:

    In pictures I recognize Busa's easily from the front, however out on the road I usually recognize them from the rear.

    Can anyone share the "planned, but unridden" route from Detroit to Sweet Home ?, that looks like it could be an interesting addition to a ride sometime (presuming its not 22 and 20) Also is there a sport bike worthy road further south connecting to the Aufderheide ?
