Some Pictures from my Ride home from Portland. You can go here for everything about the trip.
After a ok ride to the Oregon Coast I took a breakfast break at a Vista point.
It was an overall ok day for riding as I left Portland and headed West to the Coast.
Just checking out the bike. I noticed that I have a chipped headlight… not sure when that happened.
Sadly I did not see much of the Coast on my trip. This was the second best view of the day… and it wasn’t that great.
After the Coast I turned inland and made a race to Bend… not sure why the rush, but I had lots of miles to cover. Not much else for the day until I was headed to my campsite.
I stopped to take this even though I was worried about setting up my tent in the dark. I like how it turned out… so it was worth it.
I knew it was going to get cold, I just wasn’t quite ready for how cold.
It was very very cold in the morning as I packed up for the ride home.
I was freezing for the first part of the ride. I thought I’d never get feeling back in my toes and worried a little about losing fingers. I stopped for a bit to defrost… at a crossroads in the middle of no where.
At least the sun was shining as I decided to risk running out of gas going the right way or go 40 minutes out of my way to be safe. I took the risk.
Lots of this. Roads like lines.
But sometimes the view just knocked you out and you had to stop.
I wish the road here had a point where I could capture all the color. It was glorious going though this canyon so pretty.
Hwy 36 starts like this and it just so amazing.
I am smiling like an idiot behind that tinted visor.
I already shared some pictures from Hwy 36. It was glorious… such a great finale to what was a motorcycle trip of a lifetime.
