A Quick Trip to Cape Meares on the Ducati and VFR

I had tried earlier this year to sell my Ducati 750SS, but admittedly it’s a slow market and I was asking a premium. Fast-forward to June and the weather has finally turned to summer. Time to take the bike off the market and ride! Paul suggested the following route for this Sunday:

As you can tell, it’s a good day trip. But especially long if it’s your second ride of the year! My body is tired after this trip, but so worth it. Here are the pics (click for hi-res):

Great day, nice ride, and fantastic weather. Thanks for organizing Brad!

1997 Honda VFR750 at the Oregon Coast

My buddy Paul got his Honda VFR750 out to the coast today. I took the liberty of touching up this image and it ended up as the featured forum post over at VFRDiscussion 😀 Considering I’m a decent amateur at best with Photoshop, I thought that was pretty cool for a 20 minute effort.
