Target Portland: The Whole Thing

I’ve had a lot of good motorcycle trips in my life, but this trip to Portland was one of the best. Obviously it’s not hard to do better than my attempted Death Valley Trip, but this trip trumps many of the other ones I’ve done too.

As a reader of this blog you most likely know everything about my Portland adventure already. If not this is the post where I try and tie all the other posts together for a final summary.

But sometimes the view just knocked you out and you had to stop.

Every trip starts with much planning, getting my routes and my packing lists were the first steps. I took two days to ride up. (day one, day two) Along they way I met and interesting guy in Fort Brag, and had to rely on the helpfulness of strangers to keep the trip going. After I took a day off to hang out with family I headed home, (day four , day five) which included some fantastic road on the way.
I took a lot of pictures (here, here and here)

Now that I’m back and finally done boring you all with writing about it all I want to do is plan another one.


About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
