Anyone know who the 5-6 riders were on the LNF Santiam Rd 9/28 ?

Just curious, I passed 5-6 off-road riders heading up the Little North Fork of the Santiam last Sunday. Looks like they may have come in past Rhody Lake.
Wondering who they were.............

Close, but not us.



Three of us went up there Saturday. We came in from Scotts Mills and went out to Detroit.

Do you have any good rides in the area?

I'll do that next time. Can you get into that area from Gates? Maybe to make a loop from Gates and come out near Shady Cove camp Ground?

I've seen some roads heading that way, but I've never tried it.

Those are some cool Kayaks:)

PS. I picked up a 2006 200 XC-W yesterday. It didn't come with a plate though.

You sure can, just head up Hwy 22 and turn left just before the bridge into Detroit. That will take you to Tumble Lake, or, over the top and down to the LNF Santiam and out to Mehama.
Glad you like the kayaks, photos range from 1968 to 1987.....
Congrats on the 200EXC - it's a great little bike, mine was plated in WA state, then re-licensed here in Oregon, before I purchased it :)

~200 mile loop with options

After several years of trial and error I've got a loop that's around 200 miles that leaves and returns to Canby. I'll see if I can figure out how to post the track on.

And I was on a 450 EXC at the Apple Valley Rally.





My 690 was at home.

I have to figure out to open it, but I saved it for now thanks! Always looking for fun options from Portland to Bend.

Sorry I missed you and Poopie at AVR. There was a lot of riders there this year!

If you have Map Source or Basecamp it should open right up, I think.

That route to Detroit looks like fun, me and a couple other ADVriders are going to give it a try on Sunday, well at least to those towers and Detroit for lunch. From there...who knows. See the PDX Offroad thread.
