Jiggity Jig

Nothing too eventful this year, no shootings, no colors, nothing more than a broken shifter arm, lost glasses, and lots of great riding.

Luckily one of my friends was able to repair the shifter arm. No such luck with his glasses. Something to remember: when you're flying down the highway at 75 MPH, you should never open your windshield bag for anything because things, glasses, tend to fly out.

We had some great meetings with some builders and other general contractors that had good advice and great leads. We watched people, met people and looked at the menagerie of bikes and bikers.

Instead of taking two days back to Portland this year, we took three. We wanted to check out a new route and go by Crater Lake. It was incredible. Although I was a little pissed that the best motorcycle road I've ever been on had construction happening and we had to follow a pilot car for about twenty miles, still it was gorgeous. I'm ready to ride it again next season without the construction. For you Oregonian riders it's State Road 138 from Crater Lake to Roseburg and it's fantastic! It's full of great curves and beautiful scenery. It goes through the Umpqua National Forest, and that's one beautiful forest.

I can't even begin to tell you how many forests we went through, although I don't really understand how a desert can be classified as a National forest.

Now for a few pics of the trip!

We love Burney Falls and Crater Lake, so gorgeous! Looks like a great trip and coming home with no big stories can be a very good thing! Ha!

What a beautiful trip through nature. Simply gorgeous!
Gotta say though, that last picture threw me a bit.

MC; I gotta say I was thrown for a loop when I saw those things in the field!

RCL: I'd never seen Burney Falls before. The were beautiful!

Wow! Looks like a great trip! You are both smiling! That Crater Lake sure is beautiful!

Burney Falls looks beautiful, all of these photos are awesome Diva and I'm so glad to hear that you both had such a great vacation, here's hoping you get to enjoy it all again next year.

Glad to see you smiling! Both of you! Yes! And some great contacts and tips. That works, too! And a great trip in the fresh air, curves, parks, and lakes.

Sorry about the broken shifter arm. And the sun glasses. Those would be real bummers. Fortunately, you survived.

Loved all the pictures. Especially the psychedelic motorcycle. That must have taken a lot of work. And maybe it was done during a flashback or two. (Who knows?) That said, those colours wouldn't work for Isabella. So NOT her.

Yes, that motorcycle was something else. It was all cartoon characters. It definitely stood apart from the others! The glasses Jeff lost were his prescription glasses, not his sun glasses, so he was pretty much blind the rest of the trip, at least for reading anything. His new ones should be in soon I hope.

Most of the time to me you seem like the Mighty Diva, beyond my comprehension. But when I see your pink Harley it makes me smile, 'cause I know you're just a plain ol' girly girl!

haha Mark, I can be for sure! :)
