A Rare Saturday Post: My Bike!   7 comments

Thought I’d post a few pictures on a Saturday for once!  This is my motorcycle, which I’ve had since late 2008.  It’s the first and only bike I’ve owned, so I’m pretty darn proud of it.  It gets me around town in a hurry and since it gets great mileage (it’s a single cylinder), it’s pretty cheap to run.  I haven’t had it off-road much, but with the right tires it could easily live up to its dual-sport designation.  I’ve taken a few road trips on it, but not enough really.  I’m thinking of one right now!

One of the best places for riding in Oregon is the northern Coast Range.

When necessary I can even take my best friend along, reason #9 why small dogs are better.

The sun is out and so is Mount Hood on a ride through the Clackamas River Valley near Portland.

  1. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.

    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted
    to say excellent blog!

  2. A beautiful ride!

  3. Looks great. There are some magic moments to be found riding a bike. Interestingly I got my first bike long after I was young as well.

    • There are quite a few of us I believe. Always thought they were too dangerous to bother with, sort of like a hang-glider vs. a plane. We’re supposed to be getting wiser as we get older.

  4. I can imagine the smile you must have riding that, through that 🙂

  5. A very handsome bike! Your travel company is really cute 🙂

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
