Agreed. I've heard some horror stories from a guy I use to ride with about this ride and how people can be. I think it may be harder for people to leave you for dead if they actually know you. Maybe I'm naive about that.

For those in the PDX area wanting to do this ride, we should get together for a few rides prior so we get a better feel for how we all ride. I'm not the fastest one reason being I'm new to such a big bike (DR650) and I'm not totally comfortable on it yet. I'm planning on doing the PSSOR BDR training tour so by the time the OBDR comes around I'll be MUCH more comfortable and have developed some better skilz.
