Post Snowface rides to Eugene: Ducks vs. Bears (long)

the story

so my other tour this year was heading down south to corona with the in-laws for a wedding. It was a hot, dry, smoggy, traffic-y trip – but still a blast.

this ride was to be the opposite. my brother attended the University of Oregon, and planned a ride for me and a co-worker to head up to the Duck vs. Bears game this last saturday. the plan was to head up thursday and friday and return sunday and monday.

day one

song #1 – Runnin' Down A Dream

we had scheduled the ride around a co-worker’s schedule – leaving SF at noon and making our first stop in redding. he used to have a bike in college, and hadn’t owned one for a few years. just bought a new 1200GS with all the fixins. however, a family emergency forced him to drop out last minute so it was just to be dos hermanos for this one. we met up at the 505/128 at 10am. still stuck with the hotel we decided to just make an easy day of it to redding.

our first stop for gas was in willows.

saw a Prius with a flat…tee hee. We offered to help, but she replied, “that’s ok boys, I pay triple-A a lot of money, it’s about time they help me out.”

lots and lots of truckers. hit a snag for a few miles as they’re repaving a large section of the 5 just north of willows.

I did a ride a couple of weeks ago, up to Florence, OR and then back down through Crater lake, Klamouth falls and WEED!
When I got back to 5, it was 5 + hours of 102+ heat. That was the night it didn't even cool off in the South Bay. 87 degrees at 10:30 at night.
