Ride report no pics

My buddy ace from Buxton and I met at Pebble Ford campground last weekend for some dualsport action. This little area on the east side of Mt. Hood must have been the only area in the NW with NO SMOKE (not much). We circumnavigated the Badger Wilderness and visitetd Tygh Valley. I had been around Badger before but ace was imrpressed with the views of the Mt.

Those 1 lane FS roads are fun on the WRR (downhill direction)!

I did not ride "around the Hood" yesterday. I rode right through the middle of that sucker. Coming back on the GS from a stellar campout at Mt. Adams with my Dad on his GS and our neighbor on his K bike. We crossed the big Cheese Grater and made a bee line for Bette's for a Crab Omelette Lunch. After that we waddled out, saddled up and headed for Lolo Pass. Cruising along I look Right and see Red Menace who is Outstanding in his Field (literally). I had to disrupt the class with a Honk and Wave Fly by. On down the road there (Fruit)stand the McCurdy's. Another Honk and Wave Fly By, sorry we couldn't stop but had miles to cover before night.

Man, if you wre there a week earlier, you woulda seen 17 big ass KTMs roaring right past on our way to Bend's KTM Rally.

So, I take it you found Cold Springs Road, leading up to Bennett Pass,....
Don't mind the "Road Closed" sign,...those refer to Washingtonians only.
Oh,......nevermind.......

Sport-Bike HEAVEN
...Heaven for Adventure bikes too,
but the 4220 bumpy side road to Olallie Lake will become IRRESISTABLE

Another slight detour to this puts you on FS58, a longer out-of-the-way single-lane paved sweetie that takes off of Skyline near "Little Crater Lake"

AppleJam, I made the run thru here Sept 28th. thanks for the advice check it out here:

HR Country OHV Trails - OPEN

Not surprisingly, the fire-danger ban on motorized use has been lifted, and all OHV trails are back open. I will be out there starting Thurs evening through the weekend. Any takers for OHV or DS riding?

Ya, How long is the projected lay off (leg off) AJ? Did you check insurance yet for your self mangled motorcycle? Or are you blaming it on the vehicle you decided to merge with?

Barlow road

Here is a little ride report on what I found on my ride today. The bridge just east of devils half acre that was caving in has been removed and is being replaced with a new one. Four logs that make up the main bridge supports are in place and about 2/3 of the new decking is on. This construction has the road totally closed to all traffic. No get around on this one the way it looked today. The road is also blocked about one mile east of NF43 by a blowdowm
that is lying right across the road with no easy get around. Bring your chain saw or shovel if you want to go east of NF43 unless you pick up your 300 pound bike two feet off the ground.

Good to know.

They need a hefty new bridge...to get all those cars & campervans we often encounter through there!

So where did you ride then?
