Accident

RIP Rober Lee Castro. Sad - I don't know the road there but it sounds like it was a horrible landing below. I wonder what other kind of equipment he was wearing or if anything would have mattered. Sad.

Apparently, the reports spelled his name wrong. According to FB posts on KMTR's page from people who knew him, his name is Robert Casto. Sad.

Sure is sad to go so young, but....better he went blasting on a scooter than rotting away before his time due to an "incurable"(?) disease.

OAN....my 13yr old daughter and I hit the road yesterday with rain threatening and headed over to Newport on the Klr. I thought she'd wanna take a pass 'cuz of the rain but she was jazzed to make the ride. Got rained on twice on the way over and one time I thought I heard her griping....should'a known better. I lifted my visor and leaned back and....she was singing!

We had a quick poor-folks lunch and the golden arches then went to the tourist abuse shops down by the docks. Got my resupply of Dutch 'duble-zout' licorice and made a call to animal services on some d-bags who had left THREE dogs in a Prius with not so much as a window cracked. When we were leaving I got a look at them when they returned....typical Head-Up-Ass liberals thinking about no one but themselves. Hope they got a swell ticket, but....prolly just got a warning.

I'd post pics of our trip but.....

Sounds like a great ride! I drove up to Philomath this morning for the kiddo's eventing camp thing. Usually ride up but I wasn't riding through that pouring-ass rain at 0730 this morning

Posting pics: you just have to be smarter than your mouse...really not difficult. There's a whole thread dedicated to it even:

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=919

I even have a pic of the link you're supposed to copy/paste:

It was 65 w/ intermittent rain in Newport yesterday. Unless the dogs were three Newfies in the Prius, meh.

Just sayin'

The upcoming weekend looks good


We should probably plan on being responsible, and doing chores.

.......or not

nothing "random" about it....just wanting to even things up a little. You know as sure as shootin' if it'd been a pickup with a gun rack, and a dog locked up in the cab there'da been TEN Prius owners phoning in to complain about how that 'hillbilly redneck' is treating his dog.

On top of that....they'd all wait around for the Animal Services Deputy to show up and then loudly and incessantly demand that the dog's owner be arrested once he returned to his truck. Then they'd call their representative and urge yet another redundant law be written to prevent an already prohibited act.

Whatever happened to the "big government is bad" hippies of the 60's and 70's? Kinda looks like they've reversed course as of late....no?

(but I digress.....I just felt sorry for the dogs.......what with them having to sit in a Prius for cripe's sake!)

oh and, the "Towne Pump" station on the main drag in Newport has clear Premium. It's just before you get to McD's on the opposite side of the street. So does the one in Philomath.

No, that is a link to a file attached to an email it looks like. From your AOL mail program upload the file to imgur.com, photobucket.com, smugmug.com etc then copy/past the link that shows [IMG]... or use the little picture icon to paste in the http://blah.jpg link.
