Thanks for the info. Hmm. Well, I'd have to keep the trip to 7 days max. At least I could see the start of the race. Are there decent off road opportunities between PDX and there that are safe-ish? Kinda vague I know....trying to get a feel for this.

Thanks everyone who was on the valley of the giants ride the other day. I'm sore, took 1/2 day off of work, and am still in awe of the scenery. Though, my giant R1200GS was starting to get a complex from that KTM 690

An awesome introduction to the Oregon backcountry!

I DID have a few "this is it, gonna die" moments, but overall stellar trip. Amazingly, I didn't put the bike down once! I guess Rawhyde instructors really know their stuff

Hey! Nice job yesterday. You looked like a champ on that R1200GS. That was a long day. Welcome to Oregon:)

"Though, having said that, I am in the market for longer day-trips to weekend excursions." :)

If anyone else can find this place -- and a non-gated way in -- kudos to you!

Hey "Sprocket",

How`s it going with the new 690 ?

If you`re up for a ride this week let me know. Earlier the better in order to beat the heat.

Higher res for crappy phone pics will just look crappier.

Here's a view of our track. The ride would have been so much better without all those freaking gates. I can also see where that last short cut would have worked.

Ah, yeah, sorry. Didn't realize they were phone pics. Shows you how bad my iPhone 4 is.

Thanks for the track, that's cool to see.

Sure, but who would have truly known the shortcut would have worked? I say stick with what you know in the face of uncertainty.

So far I love it! Left the dealer and hit the hills above the Colombia, then did a really long ride on Sunday.

My dog isn't so happy with the purchase though! She was wanting to go on Sunday morning.

It can be, I can bring a 690 too to even the odds. Mix of green and blue trails and some road.
