Part 2


Just before Fort Bragg. Waiting for Air Bender, who drove off a cliff after clipping the back end of a camper trailer that off tracked oncoming in a hairpin turn. Thankfully he was alright. His bike survived after being towed out with a rope. One broken mirror, a new fender eliminator, and all the farings scuffed. Thankfully also the motorcycle shop in Fort Bragg was open to pull the debris out of his front tire and rebalance it. $30 US later, not bad.




JoWii and I continued on while Air Bender, ArmchairGM, DorguyR6 waited for Air Bender's tire to be repaired.



We Stayed in Garberville, CA for the Second Night. No photos. No Need! Hahaha...
From Garberville to Gilroy's Motel 6.

Parking Lot Green 4 at MotoGP.

Fancy Lexus to greet you on the entrance...

After staying again at a Motel 6 in North Medford, OR, JoWii and I decided to be tourists... We went to the Oregon Vortex, followed by Crater Lake National Park.

Crater Lake National Park...We are finally here. BUT wait, we are here and JoWii is out of fuel!!!! Thankfully they have fuel pumps at the entrance...BUT wait, they only have low grade fuel, and JoWii's 1000 says right on the tank not to use low grade fuel...Again, to the rescue, Octane Booster sold in the store...Made a power house out of his tank when he used half a bottle meant to treat 15 gallons!

And what do you know, as he is fueling, more BCSportbike members fueling up (Sweetjubbee)....Weird place to meet.

Part 10

Got lost coming out of Crater Lake, ended up in this Hill Billy little town called Glide. Made me feel like a millionaire sitting at that gas station. Guy came up to me and was like "Hey boy, I bet that fancy machine of yours goes really fast na don't it"...Needless to say, creepy.


Finally Ended up at the Motel 6 in Portland, OR. Decided to head out for a late night snack and we found Voodoo Doughnut. Stab the doughnut with it's pretzel pin, and raspberry jelly squirts out...oh what fun!



After finishing our doughnut, we met a couple from Portland who said they love Vancouver but hate our narrow highways but love the people who showed them around. They insisted on taking JoWii and I out for a drink. How could we refuse?

Anyways, ended up at a Club called the Tube. Interesting place, Good Crowd.

Part 11

After clubbing, finally made it back to our hotel around 2am....


Drove off on Wednesday from Portland Back to Good ole Canadian Soil:

Oh ya, Stopped of at Starbucks in Tulalip on the way back. Too damn hot in the leathers, so a Frappachino was in call!


At the end of the trip, I came back with a horrible sun burn. JoWii came back with a signed helmet. We all came back with Throttle locks for $20 at MotoGP. Air Bender came back with one less mirror and a taped on license plate. Three of us came back with $247 speeding tickets. We all got pulled over a total of 4 times. Too fast, Too fast, Too slow, and why are you on the shoulder? Let me escort you out. The too slow part....62 in a 65 mph zone is impeding traffic! Why can't BC be like this?

5,000 KM's later when I estimated 1700 each way....Close!

JoWii and I decided to leave the group when the others had family who were worried about the accident.

Overall amazing experience. Would do it again! :cool
Next time if Air Bender goes, we'll give him an enduro instead! :p

Wouldn't keep people from bitching if they got a ticket. And they would find a way to "overprice" them anyway..........

That was the officer who wanted to let us know that we couldn't stop on the shoulder, and gave us the escort out of Seaside, CA! Which we later followed some lane splitters and left the cop behind. I love Cali! :D
