Taking Over

I haven't been doing much riding lately, although I did ride to work once last week when Troubadour needed the car.

The only other riding I've done is to coffee and back Saturday morning.  Last Saturday motorcycles managed to take over the entire front parking lot of Coffee Culture (all three spots).  Usually there is at least one car or large SUV that squeezes in between but not so on Saturday.

Looks like a Triumph meeting doesn't it?  Our friendly neighborhood mechanic and all around good guy Donn was working on the vintage Triumph in the center and left early to ride to Salem to meet the owner of the bike.  The hole in the line up was then replaced by a Kawasaki Ninja 650 giving us a little more diversity.

The weather has finally cooled off so it is time to start thinking of a few day trips.  We seem to do most of our riding in the fall and spring when the temperatures aren't in the 90's.  Since going vegan 2 years ago we haven't been doing the 'ride to eat' rides we used to due to lack of vegan options (they seem to be in the Portland area).  Might be time to take another look at and see what we can find within a days ride.

Hope everyone else is out there riding and having fun.
