Okay, no comments about my gf's age! Just because she looks 19 and I look 40! (we're 24 and 21 btw you fockers)
Our ride started in Vancouver, but the smell of all you dirty bastards made us head south.
First night was spent in Olympia at a shit hotel but it was a means to an end.
then we flew west on the #8, where a harley davidson saved my ass from getting my license pulled. Thanks to the guy's signal we slowed down to speed limit and all the unfortunate bastards that I had just passed got nailed by a considerably sized radar trap.
After the close call we headed down to astoria. (larger pics in gallery)
After stopping in Astoria we headed south down to Seaside, which is BEAUTIFUL and has a tonne of bikers. Non of you sportbike types, but cruisers.
Then we moved on through Cannon beach and down to Newport. I didn't take many pics of newport since the town was cold and we basically stayed there and left asap. However, the ride from Cannon to Newport has some really nice twisties and a couple open spots with no traffic.
Little town past Manzanita called Nehalem
Cannon beach was the real highlight.
Some pics from the Hotel
And finally, leaving Cannon Beach... and about to scare the shit out of some cyclists with the arrows!
Big thanks to Tinman (steve) for pointers on what routes to take. and Janet for telling me to stay at Cannon Beach... we found the only place with Vacancy and it was the nicest room and hotel in the town!
Also, I highly recommend highway #53 in Oregon, #401 in Washington and #4 in Washington... the Blacktop was amazing!
