Bubba first mentioned this in the Borscht Burn thread, as someone else was wondering what might be happening for WCRM 2017.5.

Every years McRyder, who is also over on pnwmoto.com organizes a ride in September. This year it is in Baker City, Or. Post is here http://pnwmoto.com/tri-cities/baker-city-2017-a-3396/ Dates are September 8 through 10.

A deal has been made with the Oregon Trail Motel. Single room $40.25. A double $51.13. Taxes are included. Contact the motel at 541-523-5844 or 888-523-5882, and mention you are with Steve's Ride for the discount. Steve is cool with anyone from sport-touring.net West attending.

I went 2 years ago and had a blast. A good group of people, many of whom I have seen at past BBBBQ's and at the 2011 National Meet.

My bride and I do a big trip every September so I can't make this one. I'm sure everyone will enjoy it - Baker City is an interesting town, the Oregon Trail Motel is a trip and the roads nearby and to get there are great.

Been there a few times, the prime rib at the cafe on the weekends is to die for. Hwy 7 hells canyon Fr 39, and many others are good fun.

Alert!  I was at the Oregon Trail Motel this past weekend for the eclipse and they did not include breakfast with the meal as usual

I am headed south on the 4th. Not sure I will make Baker or not.

I don't think the free breakfast is a big deal since it is a very limited menu or just a dollar off a regular menu breakfast but it IS supposed to be included in our group rate price.  See you on September 8th.   Smile

How was the eclipse? Were the loons out in force yammering about the 5th moon of the dog star in ascension and aligned with earth during the eclipse and how that means that all the archangels are coming to earth?

Hope you can make the ride.

How was the ride?  I was not going to make it, but did spend time riding in Washington and Oregon, trying to navigate around fires, road closures and smoke. Ended up fleeing to the coast. My ride home included a failing rear bearing. Afraid I, despite a very slow ride home, pushed it too far and have a rear axle to add to the list of bearings, seals and parts   just pricing it all now. Ugh. Depending on availability, that may be it for the year.

So hope there was some fun in Baker.

It was a good ride with mostly clear skies and moderate temperatures.  Attendance was down this year with only 9 riders, at least partially due to smoke concerns that were not a problem, at least not while we were in Baker City.  Sorry you couldn't make it.

The ride was fun, and the company good as always. The 2 steves, Jim Cecil and I rode Dooley Mountain Road in the morning, with me needing to bail and head back to Baker City to get my rear tire replaced. Steve (mcrider) also headed back at the same time.

That Dooley road was FUN, and intimidating. Tight, tight turns, and often gravel right in the middle of them.

When Sunday came I took a nice route on OR 7, then OR 26, and finally US 20 to the coast at Waldport, and spent 2 nights camping at Beachside State Park. Then Up the coast and the I5 to Bellingham. Got there too late to make the freight forwarder in Blaine so stayed at Motel 6.

The riding was fun. As Steve mentioned, the smoke was negligible at best, and the temps very mild. Great weekend for riding, and what a choice of awesome roads.

It is a shame you could not make it, given what happened on your way to Bubba's ride in July. Hope the new bike treats you well.

Looking at the  tire in that light, the tire it replaced surely was cooked!

Lefty's was a cool spot for a drink or two ;-)
