This may turn out to be a highly attended event Thumbsup....we currently have another 15 riders from PNWRiders.com planning to be at Baker City.


Cool, sounds like it should be a blast.

  Forest road 39 ... I think.  It's been awhile and I've always been going the other way.

I asked a friend about #39 this month and he says it hasn't yet been repaved from the past washout, so there are 'many' miles of gravel.
My heavy bike doesn't do gravel without a good cause.

Hmm, I've only ridden a few miles of dirt somewhere in Utah I recall and the Busa did fine.  But 'many' miles?  Too bad.  I remember that road being pretty good!

It'll be August, the motel has a pool, you'll have been riding, so you might want to pack a swim suit.


The motel has an on-site cafe, photo, which is very convenient for b'fast,

but I've eaten there so often, that I'd be up to walking
to the nearest other b'fast spot that opens at 8 AM - for a change.

Less than 3 wks at this point.

I am booked on the 21st and 22nd. In fact I am off that week  Bigok Chili Beerchug so not sure where I will ride prior.  Headscratch

Maybe Florence - Eugene - 242 to Sisters, Antelope - Spray - John Day  ...  decisions ... decisions. Oh the pain.  Lol rofl Lmao

Hopefully it cools down some. I have been on some hot rides of late. Last Friday in Omak, Wa it was 108F and not fun and the heat seems to be following me around like a stray dog.

Well, it is starting too cool off somewhat down this way, let's hope it extends to Baker City! This morning it was so cool when I got up I turned on a heater to warm up the boat! I have not done that since early may.

Recall that the re-paving of the motel parking lot must have been done by a Monday work crew,
suggest bringing a side-stand puck (squished aluminum can works) so your stand doesn't poke deep overnight.

Will be there Friday.

Hell's Canyon dam, Sumpter, Lower middle fork road, hwy 244, NF 052, etc.  Lots of great roads west of Baker City heading to Ukiah OR.
Also anything along 395 or US 26 in the John Day area.  Just get out your map and start looking for squiggly lines.

If you don't ride up towards Enterprise were the road is under construction and dirt, where do you ride?


The motel (and many restaurants) will have a small stack of "Motorcycle Rds of E. Oregon" maps - free.  
Done by local rider from John Day Oregon; I'll bring mine down on Friday.

Like Greench says: many good routes.

***************
On the Forest Service Rd 39 that you want to ride, I think there's 13 miles of gravel that is being paved now:
"Update July 13, 2015

Officials at the Wallowa Whitman National Forest announced this morning that paving will begin today, July 13, in the construction area on the FS 39 road. Visitors can expect full one hour delays, Monday Friday: 8 am -5 pm, until the paving is finished in late August or early September.

The detour route [all gravel] past Fish Lake is open and an option for most vehicles."

I know I've been asking about the ride details but never said I was going.  Seeing all these cancellations I looked at the original post to see how many (are) going and saw my name listed.  Sorry.

I'm (C14) riding down with 4 others to arrive Friday:
Jim, Steve (VFR1200), Micheal (VFR800), Thad (VStrom1000).

None of these 4 others are in the original post's list of attendies.
So 4 more.
