Re: Need more help - completely different subject
"Trips" is the plan. The 250 jumps right up to 55mph, but she doesn't like going over 70 (and it takes a bit to get there.) When I took her to the coast, I was ripping along the farm roads - that's where I came up with the idea.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I had considered getting a cheap Chinese bike, the SRS Snake Eyes, to be precise. There's a guy selling them on Craigslist, still in the crate, for $2000. The idea was "What's stupider than doing this on a 250? Doing it on a cheap Chinese 250, of course." Plus, the styling of that bike looks old school.
In the end, my innate cheapness won out. Plus, Rocinante is a trooper. She needs to become legend. Plus the Snake Eyes has a 1.98 gallon tank. Even if it gets Rocinante's 60+mpg, that's not enough.

"Trips". Good. A single marathon trip to all the counties in Oregon would be a stunt, not an enjoyable adventure. Andrew could get years of fun out of the idea if he savors the attractions of every county over lots of shorter rides.
