Mark - Still curious of your route from Diamond Mill over to the Kilches. Same goes for Nehalem. Maybe make a loop outta it with an afternoon break at the coast (Nehalem)? We could meet up at Manning DQ or someplace warmer like the "Log Cabin" in Gales Creek.

Hey Scott and Mark--S1

Are you gonna meet and do a cheap ride in the coast range ?


I got this 250R I would like to ------wring it`s neck so to speak.

What time and where ?

I would haul it to the area for the ride------then enjoy the ride home.

Sunday Ride

Were still on. Weather not great, but PM showers sounds pretty good to me. Let's meet up at Colemans*, that little restaurant next to the Gales Creek Shell in at 9:00ish. Plan to have kickstands up at 9:30. I may get there a little bit early and grab a warm breakfast.

General plan is to head up out of Diamond Mill and check out the roads up and over to some of the coastal drainages (Nehalem/Kilches), maybe a warming stop at the coast in the early afternoon (or not). Mostly looking for forest roads/jeep tracks, not planning on single track, but are planning on running public roads so a plate will be required. Open to anybody that wants to show up.

Dan/others, if you wanna drive you could leave a rig at Diamond Mill after breakfast and we can pick you up on the way. Hmmm....warm freeway drive...not a bad idea!

Hope to see someone in the morning.

Sunday Dec 9th

S1Marks and Blz-Bob met up at Colemans for a nice winter ride on Sunday. Although it was misty at times, about half the time it was dry. Not bad. Mark led up into the clouds past Kening Campground and we ended up over near the Nehalem river.

On thing I'm realizing that's extra nice on cold winter dual-sport days, is a nice warm lunch. So we hit the Big Wave Care in Nehalem. Where Mark ordered one of the biggest burgers I've ever seen!

We busted up some more roads along a different fork on the Nehalem and managed to time it just right to make it home before dark (barely). Another nice adventure in the dark woods.

I'm sure there is a view in there somewhere


Mark, survey'ng his kingdom


Blz-Bob fighting the for eyesight. Did great considering the mist was messin with his vision half the day.


I really need to stop at more places other than clear cuts, but the climbs up to them are so much fun!




Gonna check out the Bike show next weekend, then I have a 10 days off over Christmas and no significant plans...so might as well ride a few days. Hope to see some of you guys over the holidays.

PS - Missed LoudAl, our unofficial official PDX-Offroad Photographer! Hope that last ride didn't have any "lasting effects"!

It's nice to see a few of you are still out riding and having fun in the foggy misty damp winter.

If you don't get any takers for off-road, I'd be up for a street ride on Saturday...
