Back on the oregon coast...had forgotten

long slog from florida and back on the Oregon coast for sig others career. Versys out of storage. New house South of Newport about a block east of the PCH. observation: Florida roads are flat straight and warm. Oregon roads curvy, windy and cold. Analysis: Versys seems much more spirited and fun in Oregon, despite chilly hands and feet. Carry on.

I'd like to add that I'm observing a lot of late season Adventure riders on the Pacific coast highway. Numerous aerostich clad riders on KLR's, GS's etc. with requisite sticker adorned aluminum panniers with mounds of camping gear bungee'd on. Some headed north and just as many headed south. Have yet to see a Versys in similar livery thus far. I am however getting the impression that the KLR 650 is in fact the official motorcycle of the Oregon coast.

Keep your eyes open. You may see me riding by someday. (But my panniers are plastic and have no stickers on them.)

I took a spin to the coast yesterday, didn't see any bikes, though. Versys is put to bed for the winter and I'm breaking in the WR250R. Was a mighty chilly ride home over the coast range with the nano fairing on the R

NICE! brothers in Versys nearby! As I look out my window at the rain and rough surf this place feels a little warmer.....not like Florida...but warmer nonetheless
Thanks

I'm on the south coast quite a bit, Coos Bay area. A bit warmer and not as many tourists.
