I'll be back in pdx picking up a bike or two, maybe 3. Don't forget the part where we jumped that washed out road and charted a course thru the Opel creek wilds
... have the salmon with veg on rice; good and good for ya.

Went out with Nopo and LoudAl on a merry dirty bike ride from Yamhill to Pacific City yesterday; mixed usfs/blm/private gravel rds, some single track and some sand... ok, parking lot at the Pelican...
Surpisingly little traffic on the way home considering the holliday.

DR continues to impress- needs a seat improvement though.

Well, as imperfect as it is/was, the balance on the front Beemer tire is good enough that I noticed no vibration or other oddities at speed....

I however had a shitty vibe- but I chalked that up to the spoked wheel's untrue nature- looking over the windscreen at low speed it zigs and zags noticeably per rev. Maybe my "free" balance is to blame, I'll try adding the amount of weight your balancer indicated before I pull the wheel off and put it in a jig for adjustment: what I build will serve both purposes- balance and truing.

stupid motorcycles. The DR has better balanced and truer wheels...

Almost to food in Silverton, a little low on blood sugar, 30mph corner with a little gravel on it and my concentration lapsed just enough for me to end up sliding into the ditch. I went blank for the split-second I needed to correct. Cracked rib, hip banged up, some arm road rash etc. Was a good ride up to that point though.
