    New rear tires, oil changes and clean air filters on both.
    Tomorrow I'll get all the gear ready and tomorrow evening we'll load 'em up for an early departure on Friday morning.
    I love our motorcycle vacations!
    Going to Oregon for most of next week. Gonna eat some fish and try to find some dirt roads to explore.

    Very cool. What part of Oregon are you going to? If you make it to the Portland area there are a couple of us GT'ers from SW Washington, maybe we could get together.

    Well, our AO will be the Lincoln City area. I was saddened to find out that the café in Otis was nearly burned down and out of business. I love their food and the black bread especially.
    We'll hit Dory's for their steamer clams and get some smoked Salmon from the adjoined meat shop too.
    Other than that, we'll just wander around. We've found that kind of itinerary to work best for our vacations.
    We'll be dead heading it to Lincoln City, on the windiest route of course but on our way back I'll post the day before in this thread and maybe we can meet up for lunch or a drink or whatever.

    Just be sure to be on the lookout for roving bands of wild Covids. I heard they will actually jump you while you're moving along, so be careful!

    Starting location?
    Days traveling?
    Approximate mileage?
    Who is your traveling partner?

    have fun
    Be safe

    I didn't know that the cafe at Otis had burned down. Sad. That black bread was awesome. I was there once with, what turned out to be, a disaster of a woman I was dating. She was very attractive and had bright blue eyes like mine. This little old lady at the next table commented on what a cute couple we were and specifically mentioned our eyes. My date responded with something like, "We're not dating, we're siblings." Little old lady was quite flustered. Thinking back on it now I guess I should have taken that as a clue. She was quick with the lies and very comfortable telling them.
    If you make it up to the Portland area let me know. Unfortunately we can't ride together as I wrecked my motorcycle last summer.
