It was a GREAT ride home.
We got to discover some new-for-us Forest North of Sisters and over to Lake Billy Chinook. AWESOME stuff

The next day we fallowed some of Jimmy lewis's tracks but finished up getting to Bend on the really good stuff Applejam supplied.....
....Special thanks to Applejam and K_N_Fodder, you guys are the best.
The Santiam Wagon Road is part of the OBDR Route 3, so I can't take credit for that,
...but it's just so good, it HAD to be included in tracks to Bend

The Santiam Wagon trail is a _must ride_ for everybody! That was one of the best sections I have ridden in a long time, with the power lines we rode in Bend pretty close... Thanks Apple Jam!

Backstory there is at Kingfisher campground I took a dunk in the ice cold stream with my expensive glasses on (I forgot them) and I came up without them, doh!



I froze looking for them with no luck, then Apple Jam fell in the water from the log looking for them.

Finally Jimmy Lewis said he had sharp eyes and went out on the log and spotted them 4ft down under some rocks, he was right! THANKS JIMMY!!!

Grinns/Mike then dove underwater and rescued the glasses, whew! THANKS MIKE!!

Here is a few pics from the weekend.

And after when I got home


Thanks to everyone for making it a great trip.

You forgot one of the pictures that added to the beard. Remember the shot-ski? How come the banquet room looks empty and you guys are still there drinking?!

Good to meet you guys this weekend!

A few of my pix from Apple Jams excellent Hood River meetup and ride.

A big crowd a AJ's place, this was before even more showed up.






The Wisconsin Wrecking Crew, CJracer/Craig and Zorchdog/Jeff
(AJ's better half on the left, putting up with all these ADV roughnecks)







Lots of service work being done in AJ's shop

CJracer rebuilding AJ's auto-clutch, and bent front rim and flat tire, and broken rear brake slave, and worn-out rear tire, and, and...








Mike/Grinns was changing tires for other bikes like a banshee, I lost count of how many he did!





Camping in AJ's backyard







Then off onto the fun tracks and trails





























Jimmy arrives alone at the Kingfisher Campground in OR and says "You must be Adventure riders!" to our big AJ group that was already settled in.






The partying starts, and ends late...






A cool log at the campground






That Zorchdog turned into his bed for the night






I chatted with Jimmy about his giant Redverz tent palace, as we packed up to leave next morning.






We crossed paths with Apple Jam a few times, but he was always going another direction!






Later in the day, while waiting in a HOT road construction stop we spot Suttle Lake next to us and make a detour.






















That's where this pic comes from






We dry off and get ready to ride the final run into Bend







Arrival, let the KTM Rally fun begin!

BillyD and I may have been the last Advriders to leave the Rally
I rode to Stonyford CA to visit Tmex and BillyD hopefully made it home.
I really hope to do the OBCDR 5 from Goose Lake to Silver Lake.
Tried to organize rides coming and going and no luck.
Reallly liked the Rally.
When is KTM going to figure out we want a single cylinder adventure bike?
Demoed the 690, no vibs, but what about an adventure?
Did you demo the 500 EXC? Perfect or what?
Best time was meeting Advriders.
Home tomorrow with discovery of a route from 16 to Barryessa Knocksville.
What an Adventure

A shameless plug.


My little bike was greatly outnumbered.


Jace from Vancouver. We rode around the east side of Newberry Crater and up Paulina Creek on Friday. Saw a bunch of other rally riders that day.



Sheridan Shelter.


I rode Saturday with Jim from Bend, also on a 450. We thought we had missed the regular road up to the shelter. When we came to a sign that pointed us uphill to the shelter, we thought we had found it. Jim led the way as we rode up the rocky, root-strewn, and sandy single track. I met my match on a steep and deep sand hill preceded by a sharp turn. Jim was in front and made it up one more hill than I did until digging himself into the deep silt. The “right” road? Uh... no. Turns out it was the "Most Difficult" OHV trail that the route map suggested as a way down only for the small bikes. The gravel road up was just ahead, and we finally made our way up to the shelter. We both agreed, however, that we liked the single track and I think we’ll both be back once the rains harden things up a bit.

Irish Lake. I’ve lived in Oregon for almost twenty years, and I can’t believe I hadn’t been here yet – beautiful place. The road in was a kick, too.


I had a terrific weekend. Everyone I met was having a good time, and I enjoyed hearing all the stories of rides, races, and wipeouts. I can’t think of a group of people I’d rather hang out with. You guys rock!

KTM Rallye Raiders...

Hooked up with Spencergt66 in Shasta at Alleycatdad's place ( who had last minute work commitment). Alleycatdad preloaded his GPS with routes to Bend offroad.



On route to the border ( Thanks for the great tracks, Steve!!!).



Secluded campground at the start of the OBDR #3, the crowned jewel of the OBDR's.



Shortcut to Crater Lake over Huckleberry Mountain.



Traveling the old wagon roads on the OBDR #3.



Late lunch at Crater Lake with Spencer.





We took an offshoot of the Windigo Paas, a nasty, rocky, rutted trail along Timpanogas, Summit and Crescent Lakes... getting to Manleys Tavern at 10:30pm. 14 hrs. on the seat and 90 more to Bend... in extreme cold. Thanks for trusting my route, Spencer!



Taking instruction in Jimmy Lewis's tech. seminar. Great info. from a greater person. Jimmy's the real deal. His training is invaluable.



Good company with other passionate 950 owners. Jeff and CJ are big men with big spirits and big hearts.



Brew pub stop with the Nevada crew, Kullen and Paul Q after a Jimmy L. clinic. Then it was off to Triangle Butte and the steep drop on the way to 3 Creeks Butte.



Two great Guys. Jimmy Lewis... because he cares about his students, his clinic work and the sport. And he's beyond gracious, beyond belief. And Spencer, for being a totally cool travel rider...always 100% prepared, a human Swiss army knife and 990 Adventure bike man handler. I didn't see you drop that loaded gun once!!



KTM BEND rally was awesome... a bit overwhelming with 200 plus riders all at once. Sorry for those I missed offering my personal hello. You are all my heros. Thanks for sharing in the Adventure Obsession.

I'd also like to dedicate this ride to my father, who three weeks previous to the Rally was ravaged by a severe stroke. Rather then delay the inevitable, he chose to move on quickly... I believe he merely wanted to travel along on the ride from above and insured all of our safety. I love you Dad.
