I didn't see were AJ was complaining about the free rides and events, I think it was the "graffiti" in his "hood" that he had the problem with.

I mean think about it, no one from Sang Froid would DARE do anything like that in North or NE Portland for the Alley Sweeper would they?

The bicycle racers do that on some of the roads around here. Shit stays there for a long time...

This past July, I hosted a ladies ride out here. We rode from Hood River, to Tygh Valley and back over to Timothy Lake. During the pre-rides and during the event, I was, let's say, highly disappointed to see that a motorcycle group had spray painted on the roads. We have a hard enough time being accepted as it is. Your free rides are not part of the equation at all. In fact, I've been wanting to make it to the alley sweeper, but haven't yet. Hope I'm still welcome.

Exactly! Can you imagine spray painting one of the alley ways, or better yet, one of the fences that borders one of the alleys The disclaimer would go something like this, "Just watch out for the guy wielding the scythe at the corner of 1st & A."

Yes, the bike racers spray paint on the roads up here, but it is apparently a less permanent type of spray paint. It is gone after the motor vehicles have peeled out on them a few times.

Next time try following those routes if you have time. I used to ride a lot and when I'd come upon those I'd follow them - it often took me to some nice areas/routes that I wouldn't have normally gone. Bicycle events (Not necessarily races) have been spraying route info on pavement for years, but I noticed it normally washes away in a couple of weeks. Maybe there is a special paint? Couldn't be any worse than all the utilties paint I see everywhere lately. The corner outside my office looks like some flourescent Jackson Pollock painting.

Regardless, I appreciate the events the Sang Froid guys are putting on, and hope there are more in the future. We need more local MC Events. Other than the Alley Sweeper, this will be my first ride organized from them. Will be interesting, hopefully the weather will hold. Rode into work for the first time in a week!

Thanks for the kind words about our events everyone.

I guess y'all really just caught me off guard about the road arrows. I/we really never could have imagined how a few arrows painted on the road could cause some of you so much grief.

Didn't cause me any grief at all....................and thinking about it, a little (not to much) paint for the alley sweeper would be pretty cool. I'll even supply the paint (water based marking paint, not striping paint).
Unless ya'all don't wanna mark up your own hood

Oh and BTW, I've enjoyed every alley sweeper the SFRC has put on, especially when it goes through my old hood

I'm thinking I'll be there, just not sure which ride to take-the Ninja 250 or the Husqvarna TE610? The reason I ask is that the Alley Sweeper- I think it's much easier to use my Ninja 250 and more fun since it's generally slow speeds but I did it last year on the Husky. Waaaaay too much bike for the alleys. So, is it really a good idea with the route to take my Husky or would I have just as much or more fun on my Ninja 250?
