My first tour in the US. 270 miles
« on: August 10, 2015, 01:00:55 PM »
Shortly after purchasing a used 2008 SYM, I joined Oregon Scooter Club. I joined the first tour posted which was Seafood Run.



Here is the ride map https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?usp=sharing&mid=z5fBjp80Dk-4.kGwqk-BSiodo


The map shows the starting point as Wilsonville. But I started from Salem and returned from the Forest Grove end point back to Salem.

My favorites were the sunlit straight roads because I haven't been riding for 6 years  :( and the twisties in the shadows made for some scary :o moments.

Some highlights include lunching at the top of Mt. Hebo and learning that it was a military site (missile silos) during the 70s.

Seeing the ocean and learning that some of our tax dollars go towards maintaining floating toilets. The popular fishing spot in this photo is so popular that human waste became a problem needing a solution.

A SYM 250 can keep up with the Burgs   8) . I rode with two Burg 400s and one 650.
