    When you get 80+ degree weather in April in Oregon, you better get on your motorcycle!

    Five of us met up and headed out at 7pm. We did a pre-run route for a later 'Salem Alley Sweeper' event that I'll be organizing. No pics because we just kept on riding. One buddy caught a hard-to-see curb in a down-town alley and went down hard, I saw it in my mirror. THANKFULLY, all he got was a skinned up knee and slightly tweaked ankle... The bike recieved no damage. After running alley's all over town, we headed out to a pre-determined star-gazing spot in the East Hills. I had timed it right to catch the International Space Station Fly-by at 9:25pm (There's an App for that). It was awesome... plus we had some shooting stars, satellites, and lightning to see. We had up to four TW200's in the group at one point. Snapped some night shots...
