viewtopic.php?f=67&t=12143




oh It's been a while.
I'm trying to remember what happened.
yes. Binh and I moved his BIG HEAVY refrigerator.
That was on Monday.
and we went to Battlescooter to meet Jason.
He gave me a brand new Micherine tire!
new variator(?) and belt also!!
Image
Image
Jason and Binh helped me a lot! even though Jason broke his arm.
Thanks Jason. You are my savior!

Image
Yeah~ Battlescooter!

Image
That's super thank you in Korean.

Image
then we went to my aunt's restaurant in SF.
had a good dinner and said good bye! Thanks Jason and Binh!!

- Tuesday -
I headed to North.

Image
Golden Gate Bridge

Image
Image

I took a North Coast Highway 1.
Image
Image
Image
Image

It was kinda same as Pacific Coast Hwy.
but more tree, camp grounds and less car, people.
NCH is better. especially North Coast freeway 101 was nice.
few car, nice and wide shoulder.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Yeah~ my new favorite pic!!

I stayed at campground and found a lot of fire woods someone left. Bingo!
Image
Image

- Wednesday -
I heard some noise while I was sleeping last night.
In the morning, I found that my bike cover bag was tore.
some animal stole my Ramen. Maybe Racoon?
That was my last Ramen!
Image

anyway I need to change mt menu.
I'm getting sick of Spam and Ramen.

Image
I stop by beautiful beach to take a pic.

Image
Bingo! Lucky!

Image
I made crab soup! I was super delicious!!

Image
Image
toll redwoods came out.

Image

Image
Image
That water color was so beautiful. Is that color called 'AquaMarine'?
It was dark blue with green color. Huuuuu

Image

I was riding on freeway 101. I met some big motorcycle guy.
he told me about small back scenic road.
so I went out of the freeway and took the scenic road.

Image
Image

It was nice. but...
Image
shit! I had to ride all the way back to take the freeway again.

Image
Happy camping with beer!

- Tursday -

Image
I arrived at Redwoods NP. I took a hiking trail for a hour.
It was nice to walk between the tollest tree in the world.

Image
Image
Image
Image

I took another trail to see Elks.
Image
Image
It looked just muscle deer.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
End of Califonia. It was beautiful.
hmmm I've stayed in Cali for a long time. Goodbye Cali!

Image

I was planning to get Portland on Saturday.
Binh said from San Jose to Portland is just 500miles.
but I realized that is over 800miles. Oh BinH!!
I needed to ride over 200miles each day.
But I heard some horrible sound again.

Image
shit! shit! shit! shit! shit! shit!
It's brand new tire! I've just changed 2days ago!
It was big hole. I had to use 2patches.
Image

It was getting dark and I was in mountain.
I just passed some small town named 'Cave Junction'
I had to push til the town for a hour.

Image
Yeah. I was super tired and hungry.
I filled the air and stayed at a campground.

Image
No more spam. I bought bunch of Tuna. Tuna and wine.
sounds heath. more than spam and beer.

Image
one shot!

- Friday -
Image
It was rainy and foggy day.

Image
Image
Image
Tuna rice

Image
Image
Image

getting close to Crater Lake NP.
Image
Image
Yeah!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
It was super foggy on the top. after 10minuets it was totally foggy.
I wanted to stay little longer but I couldn't see anything.
and started snowing. I went out of the park.

Image
Sunny - Snow - Hail - Rain. weird weather.

6:30 pm

Image
shit! shit! shit! shit! shit! shit!
The patches were came out.
Flat tire again. I should've bought a air pump.
I was in mountain again.
I just passed 10miles from some small town and next town is over 40miles.
I waited for someone's help for 30minuets.

Image

It was getting dark. I pushed it to the small town.
shit. 10mile is so far!
I was taking a break after I pushed it for 30minuets.
I saw a pick up truck opposite side.
I waved my hand and wished 'stop stop stop stop'
The brake light was on! and the truck stopped on shoulder!

Image
This angel is Valelie.
She was on the way to Springfield which is the same direction I was heading to.
How Lucky!!!
She took me all the way to Springfield and her brother Rob helped to fill the air.
Thank you very very much Valelie. You saved my day!

Now I'm in Eugene which is 120miles south from Portland.
I can get there few hours later.
I'm ready for Famous Portland Beer!

Wow :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Great update Wan. I should be heading up there to Oregon to visit family in about a month. Everything looks so beautiful. I think from now on you should just carry spare tires. BTW that pic with TR written in the snow was badass....

Awesome shot.

Wow, 10k miles. I guess that says something about the durability of that tiny little engine.
