'Jacks Journeys' Continues
« on: December 22, 2013, 03:50:00 AM »
Hello fellow travelers.
I've been traveling with a buddy for the past few years. I thought I had lost him when I traded the Super Ten in on the Trophy, but imagine my joy when I found Jack laying in the garage this evening waiting for his next trip.
Here he is sitting the Trophy. He has a lot of miles on him, so he's looking kind of battle scarred..

Jacks been to the Redwoods with me, the San Juan Islands, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, California. He's on his third or fourth bike, he never bitches about the food, never has to go to the bathroom, and he has actually got me a free drink at one of his fine dining establishments once.
Her he is on the Versys along the Oregon coast, and lost up on some goat path in Northern Cali.

So anyway, Jack and I will be hitting the road again here soon, so I thought I'd give him an introduction to the new bike.

Well, it was a beautiful sunny day today so I decided to see just how far up the Clackamas river I could make it before I hit snow. Hwy224 actually ends at a place called Ripplebrook ranger station, but the road continues on as a forest service road which isn't maintained in the winter. So as it makes it way into the Cascade range it becomes more and more dicey. Notice all the moss along the road, it was snotty slick in places, felt the rear end twitch more then once. So heres a few cell phone pics for today.
Bright sun on the old Clack






A little bridge crossing




Snow melt loosens things up a bit, they weren't kidding about rocks. Obligatory bullet holes in the sign. Those rocks make the locals mad!




And heres about as high as I made it





And thats about it for today
Next trip I'll throw the Canon on board.
Happy days

Nice Video..

Takes a long time to put together doesn't it..

I might try using the helmet mount for the gopro.. A lot clearer and no distortion caused by the windscreen.
