Long ride, epic twisties

Discussion in 'Eastside' started by Fighterama, Jul 19, 2005.

  1. Considering a 2 day jaunt from here to hood river the twisty way through goldendale, up hwy 30 around the east side of st helens, and back through the crackima area. Just lookin for interest, was thinkin 14/15 august (sun/mon) but am somewhat flexible. Just drove this road, its EPIC TWISTY GOODNESSSSSSSS.

    Both sides of the mountains are welcome, just wanna see who/what/where/get ideas and set it up.

    Sounds interesting, but it is hard for me to commit to such things. Also if I did it I would probably feel obligated to add a little more distance to the trip and go visit family in Portland.
     
  4. no worries there, Im from salem, know how ya feel. Could stay in pdx that night.

    What I want to do, is 1000 mile day. Head up into canada, around to edmonton or calgary, and loop around from there untill we get back in Spokane.
     
  6. do you have a map, or better yet, how close to troutdale would we be?

  12. I may be down, I'll know as the time comes.

    Eric - you ever hit the road from redmond or east to john day? : :headbang: That is a twisty - long sumanabitch :mrgreen: No traffic either the day we were coming back from laguna.
     
  13. yeah, sneaky back way, seen part of it. Fun poo after going up 97 from klamath isnt it!

  14. I did 1100 miles on my GSXR one day. I think you could do more, but I was ready to get off...and I spent a lot of time trying to track down a friend in Wyo.
     
  15. That goes without saying...I would totally be into it...but august is tight for me so I will have to wait to commit.

    I would like to ride to VIR and then Braselton on the next weekend and the weekend following that. before heading home.
