took a little 1300 mile cruise this weekend...

I had a meeting this lastThurday morning in Medford Oregon. So that basically means I had a four-day weekend!

So with rain travelling east...I switched my first plan of going to Montana to visit a friend, to a more weather friendly Crater Lake/Coos bay/Hwy 1-back home Kind of trek.

Pics!

pics from my 1300 mile weekend!

I had to go to Oregon this last thurs, so I basically had a 4-day weekend!

So I took a trip to Crater Lake...And then to the coast...and to teh 'Avenue of the Giants'...and then back to the coast for some hwy 1 action back to home.

let me explain these pics...



the camera battery is basically dead at this point.
So, the darker photo was steady enough to see that I'm taking a pic of the setting moon. But the color is jacked!
The second pic has truer colors, but I moved.
Use your imagination to combine the two pics...
and you get an awesome moon fall within the glowing embers of the setting sun.

Man I want to give you props, but tinyurl is a drag. Upload some pics here, even though they might steal them. I'm kidding, but some pro photogs have had issues with barf's free use of their photos. nevermind. /me steps out of this one.

Damn, I did a similar trip a year ago on Memorial day weekend. I thought it was cold then! YIKES! Great photos.

It looked colder than it was...then again, this was my first trip with a gerbings heated jacket. I HIGHLY recommend them! Glad you enjoyed the pics. I very rarely photograph my own vehicles, so this is probably the only time you'll ever see my bike in a pic again.

Is there actually an issue with tinyurl? I'd never used it before, but I've seen it on one of the site I frequent.

AFAIK, tinyurl is fine, although you don't need to use it here since the board upgrade. You can just paste in the full url inside the tags.

What a difference a month makes. How'd your test go?

Yah, maybe I'm just a little anal. I don't like clicking URL's I don't know where they're going. i.e. tinyurl. That's all.


I went ahead and clicked since no one else is reporting pr0n or other undesireables, and you do have some nice pics. I still think you should upload some here, and link the full gallery if it is more than you want to upload.

ah, got it. The concours.org site needed a shorter URL, and it just happened to still be "on my clipboard" when I made these posts.
I'll post 'clipboard' sized photos. I like leaving pics full sized so people get to see the details (like the trees growing from the sheer rock faces) so those may be a bit large.

I LOVE THIS BIKE!!!

The stock seat was horrible for me. (to the point of causing nerve issues.) But the Corbin seat, while needing a little more fine tuning, is just what I needed. The only issue I had the whole time was a bit of a sore right shoulder. As long as I stopped fairly often, (less than 2 hour stints) there was no problem. But I started my weekend with a 7 hour interslab ride to Medford from here in San Jose, so that got it a little fatigued right off the bat.

On another note, I also put on new tires in Medford. Michelin Pilot Power CT2's. I really like these. I didn't drag any pegs, but I wasn't going that slowly either. Since a storm system has just cleared the region, a lot of the roads I was on were damp, and save for one gravel-ly/slushy/sloppy hairpin near the lake, the tires had great grip. (I later realized I had wanted the Pilot ROAD2's, but these are pretty nice ;P )

Did anyone notice my bike IS in this pic too? O.O
