Ladies and Gentlemen:
As you may have noticed, first Saturday has come and gone, with nary a peep from your intrepid ride leaders. That's because another event dared to take our hallowed date, forcing us to compromise. But we're going to make it up to you.
Join us this Saturday (June 10th) for a lively jaunt to the coast for lunch.
We'll zip along some of our favorite backroads to Gales Creek and the Wilson River Highway. We'll bypass Tillamook as we stretch our ride all the way to Netarts, where we'll lunch on the beach at The Schooner
, one of our favorite palate pleasers.
Our plan has been to summit Mt. Hebo, terminus of another roller-coaster climb just begging to be ridden. At 3,157 feet, Mt. Hebo is known as one of the best 360° views on the coast. Except...Saturday's weather, which has hints of October in its forecast (those of you who joined for our brief but memorable ascent of Marys Peak will know what I'm talking about). But fear not! Should the weather betray us, we've arranged for a tour of the Tillamook Air Museum, housed in the enormous dirigible hangar we've all noticed as we've zipped down 101, muttering, I must check that place out one day...
Well, this Saturday, that day may have arrived. If the weather is not view-worthy, we will descend upon the museum. If the sun shines we will ride to the top of the hill. Either way, you'll also have the famous Nestucca River Byway to look forward to on the ride home. While we can't guarantee the weather, we can guarantee that a good time will be had by all.
The rest of this announcement you should know by heart: Meet at BMW Motorcycles of Western Oregon in Tigard; doors open at 8:30AM. Make sure you are gassed up and ready to go; clutches out promptly at 9:45. A map is attached. Questions? Don't hesitate to ping me. Early RSVPs are always welcome, but last minute arrivals are too.
Don't let the weather scare you; it's June...how bad can it be? Now I've done it...
See you Saturday,
David W. Peterson
