I just returned from a trip down along the Coast from Port Angeles to LA on #1, and back up through the interior. I very much enjoyed my travels through Oregon. The Coast highway, #1, was still a bit busy with tourists, also drizzling and cool, however, my return ride up through the Interior of Oregon was terrific. Cool in the morning but nice afternoon temperatures, the highways were mostly deserted, particularily when 10 miles away from the city's. The Oregon highways were excellant as well, ..great scenery and awesome roads. I travelled through on #97 from California to Biggs, mostly new asphalt, lots of curves.
I enjoyed everything about Oregon and will spend more time exploring there in the future.
Flying Frisian, ..like yourself, I have been lurking too long and will do a ride report of my trip when I get caught up. Thanks for the inspiration.
