  1. This is why I no longer enjoy riding the Oregon coast on the moto, due to high tourist traffic and the red and blue everywhere.

  2. Just roll astoria to florence sometime, I dare ya not to get a ticket...

    Oh, and make it in 2 days.


  3. Crap! I was going to do that ride this summer. I may have to reconsider and head up into Canada instead... bummer
  4. We'll be on it next Wednesday. Shouldn't be bad in the middle of the week and on a pair of sport bikes. I did it last year on a pair of cruisers in August. Wasn't bad for us. Now we'll have plenty of passing power as well.
  5. Keep me posted on how it goes. I'm also curious about the police/speed trap situations that may be present... although I've got my V1 all set so that should help (A little bit). I was going to head down in late august... but WILL change my plans if it's just too congested/littered with Five-0.

    I just came back from the coast and let me tell you unless you are waaaaay south dont take your bike cause it will be worse then rolling down the 5 for hours upon hours
  7. Yep. Passing power didn't help. Actually one of the few times we had a chance to pass at a decent speed, we got caught by radar. First time either of us had ever been pulled over. He let us go with a warning and told us to look out for the deer and elk.
    Far too many towns, trucks and RVs. Just when you have made it around everyone and start getting into a grove another stop light marking the start of another three mile long town starts.
    Just checked my calendar. My cruising trip last year was actually on Labor Day week. Not much traffic with school back in session. If you want to check out these roads try September.
