Our only experience is how to fall down looking like we meant to do that.

Crashing is what tells you that you are riding, and not just sightseeing.

It was great to meet everyone whose names I've promptly forgotten. Can't wait for the next ride.

That was a great ride and a great turnout. Lets see if we can maintain this momentum throughout the year. Thanks Mat...
Good to meet some new riders, will have to catch up on names again next time.
I,m sure there will be lots of incriminating pics and video to follow.

+1 to that, thanks for being patient hope to do a few more of these after some more practice.

I think we had 10 bikes. Not too shabby. Thanks for another good 'Scappoose' ride.


Of course John has to strike a pose for this (above) pic.

Biped shows us that all it takes is throttle:


But s1 goes for style points:

Killer ride! I'll try and figure out my helmet cam; the videos I took are pointing down most of the time, and my attempt to post one failed.

I had a great time... was good company, and some really good routes were planned. I'll be sure to join up again on future rides. Turns out I'm actually glad I bent my OEM handle bars, now I can upgrade and install the new grip heaters I have coming from eBay... must have been an omen. Thanks again everyone
