Canadian Rockies – day 1

Portland OR to Lopez Island WA

  • All meet in Portland. Stay with bens buddy Justin. Slept in his backyard
  • Portland is nicer than I remember. Hung with Ryan for the day.
  • Wake in morning and take highway to Dr Andrew island to meet Andrew there
  • 10 mins on highway outside Portland Adams XR650 shits it’s DG silencer out and almost decapitates me at 70mph
  • We pull over and notice his bike is running hot at 280deg oil temp
  • Stuff a sock over his k&n air filter to restrict it
  • Get back on highway and my clutch cable snaps
  • Ride all way 6 hr to the island with no clutch and go through 15 traffic jams near Seattle. That was fun
  • Ben looks like a 70s porn star with creeper hair cut
  • Quinn’s shit box Guzzi is running the best surprisingly
  • I’m shooting 5 rolls of film
  • Andrew island is rad. Took ferry to get here. More to come tmrw…
