    I may have the opportunity to move down there. Looking for a bit of local flavor. Thanks. Denny

    4 of us so far in Salem OR area

    Hi there are 4 of us so far in the Salem OR area plus a few in Portland, lake O, Corvallis (2), Eugene, Woodburn and one in Roseburg. check out my page on this forum for more info. One of our guys started a facebook page as well. Ive seen posts from at least 6 in WA and they had a gathering there last summer near Longview. Look under the lets ride threads of this forum to find them.

    Well, alrighty then. Look like I won't be the lone stranger. I've heard that the Vancouver-Portland is very bike friendly. True????? Also curious as to your opinion of the local economy. Hope to meet you guys shortly.

    Currently riding a modified stretch with a Titan and Nuvinci, a pusher with a RS and SA hub, and am working on a kinda sorta chopper with a 49cc Lifan automatic. Also have a bunch of treasures that may not go with me. Moving is a pain. :icon_cry:

    Thanks for the reply.

    Portland is ok

    Vancouver is more economically depressed I think but it sounds like you have a job(cargomaster?) Portland is ok, the cops are way to busy with gangstas to mess with motorbikers and there are tons of bicyclists. In Salem our provincial constabularies are bored and would jack us for revenue. But I'm 100% street legal so f*#k em. There are lots of small farm roads for riding whenever it not all soggy it rains way to much but there are 3 or 4 dry months. Good luck and happy landings come see us if you get a chance.

    Heh heh.....Cargomaster is a good friend of mine. He has an excellent job. I will be seeking employment though. I do have some perks, but still need some cash. :annoyed: Why wasn't I born rich instead of.....well, I ain't rich either. :whistling:

    Looking forward to seeing you guys. And some real live gangstas instead of the wannabes around here. Pretty lame when a 60 yo guy can intimidate a gangsta. :devilish:
