my new to me '06
« on: March 29, 2013, 05:26:11 am »
Greetings.  Brian here from the western greater Portland OR area (Washington County).  started later in life riding motorcycles (mid 40s).  KLR250.  then picked up a 2002 ZR7S which i still have and ride.  nice poor mans' sport tourer (especially after being modded to suit).  chain mess still bothersome.  had an opportunity a couple weeks ago to pick up an '06 C10 with just 3671 on the ODO.  joined the COG last week.  got a bit of work to get the C10 up to snuff.  sounds like overflow tubes are a must.  compared to my zr7s, the C10 is a tourer.  as far as agility the zr7s will turn rings around the C10 I think, based on just a couple short C10 rides.  i can definitely tell the C10 is over 200lbs heavier, longer wheel base, more raked out, etc.  but for touring, less mess (no chain) and hopefully longer range.  begining to think about mods already.  look forward to riding with you all.  alias is dbu.

Hi Brian,
  Welcome to COG.  We have quite a few members in the Portland area, and Dan Stombaugh, our Oregon AAD, lives over in the southwest corner of town.  He's always looking for someone to ride with, so keep an eye on the calendar 
  We've got too many events going on for me to list them all here, but a couple I will mention are the Regional Rally in Stevenson, WA July 12-14 and the National Rally happening in Idaho Falls, ID the last week of August.  Come on out and ride with us.  :motonoises:  I look forward to meeting you out on the road somewhere.
