 The whole idea of a WCRM is the central location for the region. Otherwise it would be the SWCRM.
So NorCal is central?

How do you define Inland NorCal?


Red Bluff. Or Corning. People go there for the restorative dust.

When considering the north coast of CA and beyond up into Oregon you're going to accept a litltle moisture, be it fog or even rain. If we're really fortunate with our timing we might get some snow. You southern types needn't worry, your bikes won't melt. The Hondas might mold up a bit, but otherwise it'll be OK.

The BC and Alberta (Canada, eh?) contingent is about equal to the SoCal and Mexican contingent.

 Last year in Weaverville we had a bike with a Hawaii plate parked next to the bikes with BC plates.

 Aloha, eh?

I rallied and pushed and prodded for Southern Oregon 8 or 9 years ago and am tempted to do it again and here is why:  Loops from 55 miles to 400 miles with a ton of twisites on them, accommodations in every budget range, 3 major motorcycle shops/dealers including the best dealer I've ever dealt with in my 40+ years of riding, world class food and world class micro breweries....just sayin' that sounds like a good weekend to me...oh yeah, one other plus, adv types, there are loops with decent stretches of dirt road as well...

Tempt us, please.  Where are the loops.  What shops do you speak of?  You forget excellent coffee.

I haven't ridden in southern OR since there was a COG national in Klamath over a decade ago. I have no idea what roads I rode then (except that one of them included Crater Lake in the loop), but I'd love to go back.

Officially changed my vote from "Don't care" to southern OR.

 I had initially planned on closing this poll by now, but perhaps I'll leave it open a bit longer. I am not at all opposed to riding beyond the CA/OR border.

Loops are: 24ish miles south on I 5, west on 96 to Happy Camp, North over the O'brian rd. to Cave Junction, and then either over Deer Creek Road to Williams ( a windy lane and a halfer that takes you up through the mountains out of Selma Oregon) or up to Wilderville and return via the Applegate Valley, 300+ miles, a full day ride.  A 55 mile quicky is up Highway 66 to the Greensprings Inn, over the Hyatt Lake Road and down Dead Indian (yes, really is the name of a road up here) to Ashland.  There are about 15 ways to turn that ride into 150+miles using various forest service roads like the Keno Access road (spetacular views off another lane and a halfer forest service road).  You can also extend by going out to Butte Falls (recommend the Butte Falls Cafe as well as the Greensprings Inn to eat at...)down to Shady Cove and out to Canyonville by going up the Tiller Highway or Highway 227, you then loop back down I-5 south from Canyonville to Wolf Creek and take the Graves Creek road the back way to Galice, then through a few hooks and turns brushing by Merlin you end up at Wilderville and come back through the Applegate again, another 275-300 mile day.  Another 100 mile road is out the back roads behind Talent Oregon to the Applegate Dam where you can eat at McKee Bridge (great food for a little spot on the map, another of our favorites) and then just return if you are pavement only, you gotta ADV bike you say...well at the T junction at the Applegate Dam take a left and it turns into 30 miles of dirt that leads you into Seiad Vally on 96, turn right at the junction and it's a 12 mile dirt road that leads back over to the little town of Applegate through some really pretty country, some of it very reminiscent of Europe, there's a lot more, that should do for a start though.  

Yes, of course there's good coffee it's the northwest...

And best of all, these roads are rarely patrolled by OSP or Sherriffs, a few Forest Service cops will pop up now and again but that's it really, if I keep it slow in town it seems to be all good...

Oh yes the shops, Hansen's BMW, Triumph, Ducati have been the best shop ever, they have stood behind thier services and products the way few others ever have.  For instance,  I had some kind of a slow discharge on my BMW GS that I had bought from them, when it came down to swapping out the main ECU unit BMW corporate balked, Mason (one of the owners) did it on the shops dime and wrangled with corporate later.  There is also a Harley dealer, kinda shady though, a Kawasaki Honda dealer, not exatcly shady, not as stand up as Hansen's though, and a KTM shop whose owner really knows the back roads here and has a new 1190 Adventure test bike in stock....

Wal… that looks pretty interesting.  Bigsmile

Hokay 'Deer Magnet', about those micro-breweries - are any of them near lodging that is under $100/night? What town would you recommend as a base of operations?
