Not saying you're wrong or that I expect otherwise Jeff but none of the road cams show snow today, not even Ochoco Pass.

Going to try it out. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...8&postcount=81
If someone else wants to go that'd be great. Doing just Saturday, have family stuff on Sunday.

So I went over and picked up Route 3 & 4 the other night. Real nice couple, I'd guess 70-75yrs old. We discussed some points about the laws on ohv and such, pretty much were mirroring each others thoughts there. Need to put a bunch of time aside to dive into the map sets now.

Interested in where you're going with this....

Wanted to get some others input on this who's familiar with Central/Eastern Oregon and the weather at the end of August. I'm having issues deciding on what to wear on this OBDR ride. Dual sport jacket (AXO Stone) that works pretty well for hot weather. It's vented pretty well. Or use a pressure suit (Fox Titan) and a jersey (Klim Dakar). I think the later will be cooler, but not sure. It may be overkill as far as protection while riding dirt roads though.

Any ideas?

No, I was mainly interested in what you were talking about in regards to laws and such... Don't want to do any trespassing.

In emails prior to the visit I first asked them about the ohv cert card and they responded that they are available at basically any bike shop for cheap, evidently we were talking about different things.
In person I made a point that the rider cert card is what I was asking about, and that I was so clueless I didn't know any facts about the vehicle sticker. They didn't know that Jan.1 this year EVERYONE that rides off road needs a cert card per the new laws, so I kinda of backed off asking more about it.
But the basis of my issue with it is at what point does a "road" become such that one is needed. They and I agree that isn't a well known definition, as there are gravel roads that any street legal vehicle can travel on and be completely ok, yet the ohv rules state any off hiway use, or some such. If anyone has a clearer definition of this situation I'd be interested in knowing it. Either the state is trying to encompass all "road" and "trail" situations into their rules solely for income purposes or they haven't defined what that actually means. Hell, there are plenty of unpaved sections of city street within lots of towns and county roads, all drivers need an ohv cert card to drive to work and such??? wth?

Everything I've read about the route can be ridden by any licensed vehicle. So we should be good without any OHV sticker or card. I believe the only time you'd need the OHV sticker is in an OHV designated area. Like if I'm going to ride the powerline trails near my house, they aren't named road, but they aren't OHV areas either. You don't need an OHV sticker to travel these trails. We should be good on the OBDR, but the card is free and can be done online and the sticker is very cheap. I think $20 for 3 years...

That's what the info I've seen and heard suggests too, but they were both saying the sticker is needed, and the cert card prob is too since they changed the rules.
I don't have any desire to get hassled by an officer due to and bad day or the lackanookie he's having, and I sure as hell don't like taking tests, especially when most all of it doesn't pertain to me, AND when it seems like it's just a requirement because a state employed red tape specialist says so.

I guess this is just a whining rant with way too much typing going on.

I remember one of you saying you have a gps60st(Jim, right?) but don't remember the other one? Anyone running a rhino? Do they talk with cobra frs raijoes? Wondering if we should consider talking a radio?

End of August? Hot and dry. I would expect temps in the 90's, but be ready for a full range of possible weather conditions.

I read a few sites where people were talking about taking radios and they all ended up not using them at all. We're not going to have a lot of people on this ride so we should all stay pretty close together.

90's isn't bad as long as you're moving. Trail riding I'd sweat my balls off, but this ride we're going to be moving along pretty good so that shouldn't be a problem.

So would you suggest using a dual sport type ventilated jacket (even has removable arms) or a pressure suit with a jersey?
