2018 Calendar

Post by westendguzzi » Thu Nov 01, 2018 9:31 am

Claus took the October picture but due to the forum crash was not able to tell us about it.
I took the November page at Stoneleigh Kit Car Show in, I think, 2017.

The December 2018 photo was taken in August 2017 - I'd "finished" (I later discovered you're never finished) my Triking build, but hadn't got it licensed/registered yet, so since I couldn't drive on the road, I drove it to the top of my driveway and took the photo. That's the Columbia river in the background.
I have a fairly steep driveway, with a sharp turn at the top, and always have to slip the clutch to get out - wondering how long it will last- seems OK so far (2000 miles) :-)

Actually there is a hill climb every year about 30 miles away

I didn't do it this year, but maybe next year. My local "test drive" is also very curvy, but popular with bicyclists, so you have to be careful - this is the one in my YouTube videos.

Fantastic.
The Maryhill Loop Road must have been built especially for 'drivers'.
You are blessed with some brilliant country and roads.
Thanks for sharing.

The Maryhill Loop road has an interesting history - built in 1913, the first Macadam -surfaced road in the NW united States - an example of what could be done. Can you imagine those 1913 bangers going around those corners ?

As an aside, also in Maryhill is the world's worst Stonehenge replica, built by the same (rich) guy who built the "loops" as a monument to WW1 (?)
