Ashland? So you really don't want anyone from up north to come? There are practically no other way to get there other then I5, and once there, there isn't any roads to ride. I don't get it. Shrug

I really need more info before I vote. I have been through John Day on my way to Baker City and there are some fun roads in that general area.
I spent time in Hood River during my windsurfing days and there seem to be some neat roads N. Of the Columbia.
Other than that I don't know much about Oregon roads, except that the main ones seem to have a large population of speed tax collectors and low speed limits. What is good about the other areas on the list?

 Don't know anything about Oregon roads myself. Just picking places out of a little research on old threads here.

 Suggestions are welcomed, and encouraged.

From RC30boy ...

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...

There are lot's of alternative routes to nor cal (inland), but yeah the coast is basically I5 to Grants Pass then west down the coast. Oregon coast is plagued with RV's and construction. Ashland is tough because there is basically one route other then I5 from north to and from. No loops, so you have to cover your tracks coming home. Once there there is basically one loop to ride and depending one which way you came, it's the same roads as you came in or out of. Lot's of forest service roads, and I'm not sure of their condition. Hit or miss on those.
Eastern Oregon, Baker City, John Day. or further south in the Lake Tahoe area would be fun!

You could come down the coast and then loop home back up east side of the Cascades.  There are a lot of alternates that parallel 97 and are waaaay more scenic.  You also don't have to come in via Grants Pass, you can come into the Roseburg area and come along the Rogue River past Galice out of Wolf Creek, , you can come past Roseburg to Canyonville and through Tiller to Shady Cove, then up past Butte Falls and in, you can go just a bit south on 101 and come back up 96 past Happy Camp and in, just some thoughts....

Not sure what you mean by come down the coast. Oregon coast is out due to heavy RV traffic and construction all along the length that time of year. Those roads are good suggestion but only if I come down the coast.
It's pretty much all for not anyway. If it's the first weekend of June like it looks like it will be I have another commitment anyway.  Sad
