Just have the wheel in the shop, getting a new tire (I guess there is no good time for that.)

Thanks for the invitation. I'll try to make it for at least one ride. If some other PDXers will go, maybe I won't be odd-man-out this time.

I just had lunch with Marty Hill from Georgia. He's going to chill at our place and I hope to get off somewhere around 4pm and get over to Produce Row.

He has a 2007 BMW GSA. Very nice!

Well, here I am sitting on my butt with no ride....



Hey! wait a minute! Right Turn Clyde showed up in a van, and nobody ran him off. Maybe I'll just cage it down there and park around the corner... sneak inside while nobody is looking. Nobody needs to find out.

You would have gotten away with it if it was for the shoes. ATGATT

it's not just for riding

Another good Meet-Up, and two new (to me) faces. In the center, AlinBeaverton, and on the right, the-ever-traveling-not-really-from-Georgia, Marty Hill.



Tales of Marty's travels make an Advrider want to hit the road and not come back. Here is his ride:



We showed Marty a small sample of Oregon Rain, then moved indoors.

AlinBeaverton and drrags exchange gestures of Advrider camaraderie:



Later, we managed to leave on our own, without being thrown out- surprise! Even the rain stopped. Are lucky? or what?

Hey Marty, is this the straight road you were talking about?

Just take some budweiser and stir in some instant coffee. All the bitter ickiness you could ever want.

I haven't heard that nickname, but it is near Lewiston- sort of. It is Washington 129 where it drops down to the Grand Ronde River. From Lewiston/Clarkston it goes through to Enterprise, changing to Hwy 3 in Oregon.

Marty Hill was surprised to find it, because the road looked straight on his GPS.

And yes, it is at least as much fun as it looks.

That's what you get for deserting us.

Are you ever going to come back for a ride through the green, or you spending all your time in Moab?

Like Patton, I shall return.

I'm just trying to work out how to bring back a truckload of beer with me - Maybe I'll ride Mrs_GS up with me and make her drive a full U-Haul back...

It's a good excuse to ride to Wyoming, though- they have real beer there in the stores....



Some time in the near future I might have work excuses to be in the PDX area, which means one thing: Bike trip w/ company paid mileage!

Be sure to check in while you are here. We will have to plan a ride...


... but, nobody is going want to hear about you getting paid for it.

Yes, Rattlesnake Grade going into the Grand Ronde river. One of my favorite NW roads:




The OR part is good too, but last year was in need of repairs:
