    Finally getting a chance to take a trip on the Rocket. Leaving for Oregon in the morning. I have been fast now is the time to see how she feels going far. Bike looks like the Beverly Hillbillies truck with my gear pack on it. See you down the road

    I have been North many times. We will be going up the east side of the Cascades through Bend and South on the 101.

    Depending on how far north you are riding on motor, you might consider McKenzie Pass west out of Bend & Sisters.

    400 miles today. The lack of cruise or a set screw makes for a shakey hand. Comfort is good and the eagle tires are handling well.

    Check out Go Cruise.
    Simple, functional & innexpensive!

    Good day from Susanville to Bend. First tree lined two lane State road. No sign of and the rain cleaned the smoke away. Love the torque of the Rocket climbing the hills.
