I have a couple guys I'll ride with up here but I like to keep it small or go it alone myself.Twohulabears said:Looks like we got a few Oregon riders here! COOL! I have a question for you though. I know at this time of year, it is hard to plan rides to much and if it is the least bit nice outside, you have to just hop on and go. But I was wondering if any of you have a hard time finding others to ride with? I live right off HWY 26 so I hear bikes going by all the time. But I don't know anyone who rides. Do you belong to any local clubs or groups? How do you find riding buddys?
Twohulabears said:We joined the local ABATE chapter last year, and while a couple of them rode their bikes to the meetings, it seemed like no one wanted to get out and ride much. It seemed like it was just some older folks who wanted to go there to smoke and drink.
We did do a couple PokerRuns last year and that was a lot of fun! We also went on Sunday last year to the Fossil Campout and Rally and that was a blast!!!
Not that way these days just to bring you up to date. I have gone 2001 thru 2005 and it's been really low key (as far as any law harassment.) Just want the record to be straight.Y2K said:Sounds like Abate of Or. alright:whisper:
I haven't been to the Fossil campout since the '80s....cops were always overbearing every time I wen't there.
Last time I went four of us got pulled over before we made it to the campground and hassled about everything they could think of.
My buddy riding lead got a ticket for a burned out lowbeam on his headlight that happened on the way there.
I have heard it's been better in recent years but I still don't trust the OSP,buncha p&i(k$ IMO.Fire4Effect said:Not that way these days just to bring you up to date. I have gone 2001 thru 2005 and it's been really low key (as far as any law harassment.) Just want the record to be straight.
