Ride to Hood River Oregon

Last Saturday I rode down to Oregon via Cayuse and White Passes



at a road construction site the flagger waved me to the front. Good thing, I would have passed all those cars and this saved me time.



down in the Columbia gorge the wind turbines were at work



the wind was from the east on this day blowing me down the Washington side of the Columbia. A much nicer two lane twisty than Interstate 84 on the Oregon side



over in the Hood River valley I rode on for a view of Mt Hood. There are a lot of apple orchards and various fruit in this area



later I went out again with a relative and his new Harley



the Versys worked for me very well on this trip





I headed back Monday and it was Hot. On the Washington side I headed up Hwy 142 from Lyle to Goldendale a real fun twisty by way

this section was signed "No Center Stripe"





back on Hwy 97 headed north more road construction. I rode to the front of the line and the flagger said she didn't care.



I covered 761 miles on this ride and really enjoyed the Versys

Ride while you can

Looks like a fun ride! I've been meaning to get up the Gorge and come back down on the Washington side I know it's much more exciting than 84.

Been loving the weather around here latley!
