  1. Meet time: 9:30
    Leave: 10:00 sharp
    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.

    Just did that today. Did you say mellow? :nana
     
  6. im out.
    sorry.
    had a rough night with little sleep.
     
  7. 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]

    Tell us more Crippy lol
    R6jon said SpeedGeek was fast. That's all I need to know.
     
  11. 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:
     
  12. Busas are only fast if there is a Starbucks down the road (or the daughter on the back has to pee) :evil4:
     
  13. In pictures I recognize Busa's easily from the front, however out on the road I usually recognize them from the rear.

  20. 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 ?
