It is worrisome this once fabled event is barely breathing. Must resuscitate !!


Good summary!  Maybe we could resuscitate WCRM by moving it to another region.

I haven't made it to a WCRM since the first, or been on STN in several years. But... I'm looking at making motorcycling, if not a priority, at least a near to daily activity again. Truth be told I didn't even know my account was still active. Anyhow, hopefully there will be another WCRM in 2015.

Part of the tradition is the WCRM.5 in September/October and has a few locations over the years. Last year, a few of us piggy backed onto PNW Rider's event in Baker City, Oregon ( one of my favourite places btw) and stayed at the super motorcycle friendly and very reasonable Oregon Trail Motel. Hard to beat and great riding in the vicinity including Hell's Canyon.  Been to Baker/Oregon Trail Motel a number of times and the ride from here is always a treat.

I would have thought Ashland would be appealing, but it is lesser known that many places. Baker is an option for next WCRM but a long way for folks in Southern Cal. Hell, I would host a WCRM in Casltegar but that is even further though many have made the trip from afar.

Ashland is beautiful, I've been through there a couple of times.

As for BC, I had entirely too much fun in Nelson the last night of a ride up into your neck of the woods. Made for a very painful ride back to Seattle the following day. Baker would be nice as it's so close. Never been to Baker City.

If  you want to return to Baker City, PNWRiders is having its Fall ride to Baker City on Saturday, September 13, and the room rates at the Oregon Trail are going to be the same as last year ($38 single bed, $49 double beds.....including tax).  That rate is also good for Friday night, just tell them you are part of "Steve's Ride" when you make reservations.

Paul and I are back home safe and sound after 39 days and 12k miles.  

The only issue we had is that I got a rear tire puncture on the way back but we were able to plug it and it held.  

A ride report will follow but don't hold your breath, I haven't even started working on it yet.  

Cheers!

39 days?  It seems you need lessons in map reading.

I would love to be able to get away for that long. Looking forward to the report.
With that much time, too bad you couldn't have stayed a bit longer in Ashland.
