Had no problems at all and got back to the hotel in downtown Portland around 10'ish last night...never even saw a spun out vehicle anywhere.
We left the show around 4pm on Saturday and roads were OK, as long as you used some common sense (which most people did). I-205 south back to OC was fine, even bare in a lot of areas. I didn't have any problems until about 2 miles from my house up on the hill in OC where the roads went from dry packed snow (in the morning) to glazed over with ice in the afternoon.




A few more pics

I don't know why, but I kinda liked the Mad Max type bikes.





Earwigs bike with one of knary's paintings



More of knary's paintings.........about time he started painting some cool stuff http://www.oilandpiston.com/art/




Would love to take this badass TZ750 for a spin

What every drum brake needs: a water scoop.


Was I the only one who wondered why the Rokon had a tach and then found out it didn't?

Not a bad show. For free that is:) People actually rode there (Saturday). My fav is that Triumph with the 67 on the tank.

Thumb Great photos!

Thanks for sharing the photos! Wish we could have made it...

Moved snow most of the day instead, but that beats sharpening my defensive driving skills with the non-driving imported badasses in Portlandia.

Thanks for the pics.

Roosting red cinder and chocolate butter

Don't really need 10" of suspension travel for that, I suppose
