That sounds awesome! I'm really looking forward to it. My little DRZ tops out at 75 but I'll try to keep up.

75 mph, is plenty fast. AJ is special on his 990, we don't all chase him.

Good Adventure.

I will make every effort to make this event. I will bring my Gulf Stream small motorhome and I ride a Yamaha TW200 and my favorite adventures are back country and single track trails. I am looking forward to an early Spring adventure.

Awesome pavement twisties,
high speed 100mph smooth gravel,
chocolate butter two-track,
open desert wide trails,
and tight OHV single track.

All within 10 miles from camp !!!!

Excellent, Welcome !! That's a big haul from Boise, but this is a good destination. You can come earlier if you wanna/can to make the most of your trip, the campsites are very nice, no nicer than nice, because they're FREE through the end of March!! I'll show Thursday sometime, maybe earlier, if the bug gets me.

Yaknow? I hope he is, well except the Buick part. I wouldn't wish that on anybody, except maybe that new Turbo car. Heck, he mighta even retired to China for all I know. I wish I knew....I'll even call him asrvivor if he shows!!!!

Anutha Idahoan? Excellent!!
The trip is worth the effort, I believe. The Crooked River canyon is a beautiful place. My first time here was when Oremike suggested it 4 years ago, now. I was both blown away and mad at myself for never seeing it before.

I still have yet to make it into that lower section of the Ochoco NF, SE of the Prineville Res, it's always been snowy at the elevation in March still. Now I gotta go back later in the Summer.

If anyone is interested in doing a little desert riding let me know!
Conditions will determine the route, but lunch for sure in either Brothers or Hampton Station.
I'll follow ya, Mr DS!! I wanted to go that direction with the big bike group last year, but I really wasn't in the mood for all the miles they ran, as it was my first ride on Punkin since my accident. Never been South of Bear Creek yet....

Highway 27?

Is highway 27 paved down to highway 20? Does anyone know how far it is to the camping area from Highway 20.

Even though it is 7 1/2 weeks to this adventure, I am getting excited for it.

My latest shop project is a Moto-jack bike hauler I am modifying to fit on the front or back of my motor home as well as the rear of my Suzuki Grand Vitara.

I am looking to track down a Kendon motorcycle standup lift so if any of you hear of a used on for sale, let me know.

I just traced it out on Google Earth and I came up with 28 miles from HWY20. Looks like gravel for quite a bit of it.

Hwy 27, from just South of Prineville Reservoir to Hwy 20 is Oregon's only non-paved state highway. 4 years ago it was awesome hardpack dirt, now smooth high speed gravel. Should be good for motorhome travel, but I have not been on the whole route down to Hwy 20, so......good luck!!!
