Just a short Ride....

It was time to unplug the battery tender, check the tire pressure, back the motorcycle out of the garage, then … top off the fuel tank. The weather service was calling for day time highs in the mid 50’s….. with skies clearing. Meredith and I decided to ride north on Hwy 97 and cruz over towards Prineville, then take Hwy 26 to a small road that cuts over to the Smith Rock State Park and walk around some. Lunch in Terrebonne at a wonderful cafe by the train tracks… then back home. Great to get the motorbike back on the road for even a few hours…. Spring is in the air and summer just around the corner!

Looks like it was an awfully nice day for a ride!

My luck has been striking out, now that my bike is all ready to ride, I've come down with some nasty bug forcing me to lay around my house and stare out the windows...Hopefully I can kick it soon and get out there!

Glad to see you two finally spent some time at Smith Rock. Did you make it to the top? Terrebonne Depot is a perfect place to have lunch after hiking at the rock! I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, climbing the trail up behind Monkey Face.

I ate at the cafe on the tracks last year during a ride. Well, we got ice cream. Looks like a great ride to start the season.
