Howdy guys and gals.
Just wanted to let you know that I've discovered this site and live in the PNW, although I live in a suburb of Portland called SPRINGFIELD. Sorry. Some folks think that Oregon is made up of Portland and the coast.

Anyway, I'm glad the sun is finally shining on a weekend and am looking forward to another great riding season.

I'm forty-something with a great wife who loves to pilot her own bike and we love riding in the GREAT Pacific Northwest.

Hope to meet some of you someday. If there's a way to find out about rides (organized or not) please let me know.

If you're ever in the Eugene / Springfield area and want to ride, or need some help (I have a trailer and tools) let me know.

Welcome Brian, good to see another Oregonian here.

Who you kidding Springfield is a suburb of Eugene not Portland, lol. :)

Have you ever attended any of the Rose City Motorcycle Clubs rides? It's a club made up mostly of touring bikes and the like but they don't discriminate. They have a ride next Sunday, the Rose City 250 there's a meet of sportriders the day before at Beaverton Honda. If your intrested in some of the RCMC rides check here: www.rose-city-mc.org

Thanks for turning me on to the website! I'll give it a thorough reading.
Sunday morning rides are usually a bummer for me 'cause of church, but Saturday rides rock.
How can I find out more about when the sportiders are heading out (not just next Saturday but whenever...)??

Ouch! you didn't go down did ya? Heal up, the suns breakin out :)

Btw Birdman as I stated above there's a local sportbike meeting at Beaverton Honda next Saturday between 5:00 and 7:00pm, I've never attended it, heard from another local on SBN. You might check over at Pro Caliber, I think someone said they would have flyers there.

Yeah I highsided in some gravel on an onramp to 205. Bike's not bad because it didn't tumble....except it broke a piece off of the lower crankcase under the alternator cover:finger: :mad:. I'm still waiting for the estimate. I'm going to be so pissed if that one little chunk totals it because the rest is just upper and mid fairing, barend weight, clutch lever, alternator cover, footpeg and bracket, and turnsignals. The big mystery is the mirror because it barely has a scratch on it. I'll put some pics in my gallery..... I should be back by mid may or so.

Welcome to our little corner of the world. :) As Jim mentioned you could join the ride this July. All of the details are in here... somewhere. My grandmother lives down in Milwaukie(sp). Of course I'll never show up on her doorstep with a sportbike unless I have a death wish. I will be cruising up and down I-5 often, once I do get my own street toy. :D :D I'll keep you in mind when I'm heading out to Bend. :)
