The Triumph Riders Association of Portland, or "TRAP" for short, is the Cascade Moto Classics, Inc. chapter of the Riders Association of Triumph (RAT), also known as Portland RAT. Our club began with Triumph's resurgence in the U.S. in l995. TRAP is North America's largest, most active RAT Pack. Currently, our RAT Pack has over 800 members and we have at least one club/dealership event each month besides our monthly breakfast meetings.
Our primary objective is to get together as a group for rides, social functions and to support and promote Triumph Motorcycles, and our local dealership, Cascade Moto Classics, Inc. in Beaverton Oregon. We meet the first Saturday of each month at 9AM at the Peppermill restaurant in Aloha Oregon for breakfast and socializing. We also have several overnight events, track days, and day rides throughout the year. Although our primary focus is Triumph, visitors are always welcome to our events on other brands of motorcycles.
Our group rides are not led or escorted. Instead, each rider is given a map and encouraged to "ride at your own pace". This promotes safety, allowing everyone to enjoy the route at whatever speed is comfortable for themselves, without the necessity of trying to keep up with others at a potentially dangerous and uncomfortable pace.
We hope you will consider coming to join us soon at one of our group events. We believe you will find that we are a fun loving group of individuals that will welcome you openly. If you are as obsessed about motorcycles as we are, come and join us for breakfast, or simply stop by and say hello at Cascade Moto Classics!
