Checking in from Oregon

Hey fellas,
Just checking in. Trip is going great and as planned so far. We have ridden approx 1,600 miles through the Cascades starting in Black Hawk Washington on the BC border. In southern Oregon now about 35 miles from the California border were we will work our way to the Loast Coast and finally Reno in 1 week to fly back home. Weather so far has been a perfect 10. We been pretty lucky as this is commonly referred to as "The Pacific North-Wet"
A few pics

Good stuff, Frank.
I think the 'Pacific North-Wet' was transplanted here the past week.
Enjoy the rest of the trip and come home safe.

All is good with the Jersey crew out west. We are in Hoopa Ca tonight.

May be hard to see Mt Shasta in the background.

Gotta agree with MoBill - nice choice of bike for the trip! OTOH, mine hasn't left the tri-state area......yet.

Project ugliest bike ever

I need another bike like I need well another stupid bike....

Anyway it is so damn ugly that no one wanted the poor thing & I got it for cheep. (I think & hope) Owner said it would not turn over & so let it sit. So I go to look at it put in a battery & hit the starter button & nothing just a slight tick. So I jumped the starter solenoid with a screwtriver & she cranks (owner now mad that was able to make it crank& feels dumb) A little starter fluid & she fires off but will only run with full choke (no biggle clean the pilot jet) no real smoke & sounds good so I strike a deal for $700 & now I own the ugliest bike ever.

Figure will be a good winter bike

Welcome the ugliest bike ever

quick stop for some cofee

rear rack is a good place for said cofee cup



home in the garage



needs lots of love & parts needs
Right side shroud
handlebars(bent)
battery
gas cap (owner pried it off when lock froze up)
Stater solenoid
back of the blinker switch housing
rear fender is cracked but who cares


anyway
