Hey, just making a more likely than not failed attempt at getting some riders together. I am currently in the Eugene area and head up to the portland area from time to time. Anyone from around here???

Been trying to get a pack going but its not working all that well. More so due to the winter. :thumbd: (please die winter) However, I figured a failed attempted is still an attempt. Let me know if anyone is in the area or will be and we can set something up!

I have been cursing blasphemies at the winter weather for about 3 months. I am in Corvallis but didnt see this til today. I actually rode to Salem and back to their cycle gear. Let me know when you want to arrange a ride and I might show up seeing as my weekends are free.

everyone sucks at first. I think I finished #2 in my class and only by a point or 2, still doesn't mean I was very good when I first started riding. just be patient and careful and the skills will come with practice and more miles.


$155, thats not bad. the class here was $275 5 years ago.

Holy Shnikes! lol I guess it really doesnt matter just so long as it teaches you the basics of keeping your wheeles down though right? I have every intentions of taking the class, my biggest tug right now is do I want to go for the 250 or 500... I have had dirt bike experience and riding quads before, so I have the basics on shifting down. People say if I have that down 250 will be WAY too boring.

They use mostly 250 cruisers for the team oregon class at LCC. Depends on your size. I was on a dual sport for mine. Great class. Well worth the money spent. The classes fill up fast so if you get scheduled out aways you may show up before a class 30-60 min you may get in if someone doesnt show.

I bet there are some really nice rides near Eugene. Its a bit far for a day trip from Portland for me though. Please go through all the riders training classes you can. They have beginner, intermediate and advanced. Its well worth the $ when your life is at stake. Its a whole different ballgame than dirt bikes.
