My Weekend Daytrip

I don't get away from the house often enough I guess. It wasn't a big trip, approximately 230 mile round trip. But I did it on my old Honda C102 with the pit-bike engine.

Not sure if this belonged in Day Trips subforum, but since I'm a bit of a fixture here in Battle Scooters, I posted it here.

I rode Saturday morning to a old friend's house, someone I haven't seen in years. The route was up the coast, North from our place in North Bend, OR to Florence, then east on 128 to Mapleton, and then onto hiway 36 to Triangle Lake and his place near Blachly. I added an additional run to Monroe and back. It was possibly the nicest mid April day I've experienced in a while. Temperatures up in the low 70's for most of the day.

Railroad bridge at Cushman east of Florence. It's a nice name for a town on a scooter trip, don't you think?


The old orchards and trees on the way up were all just busting out with blossoms..

my departure..

I rode the rest of the way home in the gathering dusk till it got fully dark about half way. Funny temperature swings with altitude, it would be warmer on the hills and tops of big climbs. All in all a great day and a lot of fun visiting with an old friend.
