It’s cold but it is not raining

This is it. It is Sunday and it is not raining, so it should be good enough for a ride. Let’s take the Tiger out for a stretch.

Tiger ready for the action. November 20, 2011

The idea is just to ride in the area, a couple of hours or so, going north on the Willamette valley.  I stopped on the same vineyard I stopped last week when I took the Dakar on a similar ride. Notice the difference on one week – less color, less leafs.

One weel later, less color and less leafs on the vinyard. Benton County, OR. November 20, 2011

I continue the ride, went past Monroe and looped back south via Alpine.  It was getting cold. This bike has no heated grips.

A quick stop for a photo, it was wet everywhere out of the main roads.

Quick stop on the way back home. Territorial Hwy. November 20, 2011

And that was it, about 70-80 miles later I was back home. It was nice to walk back inside the house and find it warm!

Back home! November 20, 2011

That was all folks!
