    8/22: Portland-area Hawk ride

    The plan: eat a bagel, ride from Portland to Astoria, eat some good food, ride home.
    The route: OR Hwy 30 to Scappoose, Scappoose-Vernonia Hwy to Hwy 47 to Hwy 202 to Astoria. Hwy 30 all the way back home.
    As of this writing, 4 Hawks set to ride.

    Bagel rendezvous at 0930; PM for location if you're around and want to join!
    My pronouns are she/hers.

    To ride is to live.

    There, and back again. (photos from the epic journey)

    Sorry I have a full schedule for Sunday. Have fun! The Highway 47 run from Mist to Clatskanie (or vice versa) is also great fun, all nicely paved in timberland. No log trucks on Sunday.

            ...from the department of You Can't Make This Shit Up:

            As DrDylan was strategizing commercial hauling options, he got rescued with transport by a 1-legged Elvis impersonator with a huge personality who volunteered his truck to haul ProblemBike back to our garage for non-roadside attention.
            We didn't make it to Astoria today; maybe next week...

              Don't have too many excuses this time for 8/29. I might hook up in Linnton, Oregon.

                A cast of Hawks, along with the Africa Twin, successfully executed the Astoria ride today.

                Sadly, ProblemBike, now and henceforth known as Calamity, was not yet ready for a redux although DrDylan has begun learning the joys of carbs...

                  Thanks, Teresa and Bob, for putting this together. Although my loop was partial, it was a fun ride of about 110 miles. Yetta the Hawk is running well, although sprung more for the track than for bumpy backroads. She is also jetted a little rich, a winter project. But with the fresh engine and 16/41 gearing, she has much longer legs than before. Time for the break-in oil change, and a full synthetic oil.

                      2 two-piece suits.
                      1 extra leather pants, with a + perimeter zipper.
                      1 two piece armored textile (with only the 10" zipper on the back.)
                      1 Aerostich Roadcrafter.
                      2 snell rated helmets.
