It was nice of you not to taunt the Beemers for being... unfortunate looking.     That's some gorgeous country. My SO is from Oregon, I've been hinting about us riding cross country to visit her folks. She has been resistant, but of course as we all know, resistance is futile. :)     AMA# 1019197  COG# 8229  CDA# 0267

What a great trip!!    I'm sure you did a lot of preparation, and it looks like it really paid off. That was a great route that you put together... I would like to hit parts of it in a tour from Seattle some day.    Great pics and info... that shot of you riding, with Mt. Hood in the background is calendar material.    Well done !!

Hey Brent, great photos!  That one of your bike in front of Crater Lake is fantastic.  Glad you had such a good trip. I'm beginning to contemplate longer trips and write-ups like this one are great inspiration.

Greg, I would love to ride up to Seattle and then ride down together some year. That would be a fantastic ride!     Thanks for the responses everyone.   -----------------------  Brent Johnson  AMA# 1046574  COG# unknown but joined :)  SF Bay Area California  1988 Red Concours "Ruby"  connie-dot-mrpepsi-dot-com  Why Mr Pepsi?

Hey Brent,    Great shots! I think you may have miscaptioned the pictures which you name "a view of one of the Three Sisters." I think what you're looking at is Oregon's Mt. Washington. If I'm guessing correctly, you shot it on Hwy 22 just over the top of Santiam Pass coming from Detroit.     Next month, I'm leading four NorCal buddies on a big loop from my home near Salem, out to the coast, then to Mt.St.Helens NP and then up the Hood River Valley to the mountain and on over to Central Oregon to the John Day area.     Should be a blast. Your pix show off the Northwest at its finest.  Bob "Flylooper" Burns  COG #5887  E Clampus Vitus, YB#1  '04 FJR 1300

Flylooper, I think you are correct. I wasn't sure. Sad part is there was a sign talking about the fire when I pulled over to take this picture too. I bet it correctly identified the mountain. :)   -----------------------  Brent Johnson  AMA# 1046574  COG# unknown but joined :)  SF Bay Area California  1988 Red Concours "Ruby"  connie-dot-mrpepsi-dot-com
