Guess the Route

A report quite a ways back shows the distance from Burns to Klamath Falls as 230 miles. If that is true - they can not go through Bend. They will have to ride straight south to Lakeview and then follow Hwy. 140 towards Bly Mtn. They then have the possible route of follow Hwy. 140 all the way to K-Falls or head west to Sprague River . Then south on Bliss Road to Hwy 140. This possible route saves a little hill climbing. We will see tomorrow.

I really don't see how any of this Jackie Gleason talk is germane to this ride report!

Is it Smokey over on that side from the Sisters fire?
I'm heading out in the morning from Salem.
Maybe I can get some picts of them commingle into town. I'm figuring they'll come down hey 97 ?
If not them I'll just have to find them in town. My understanding is Day's Inn?

I know, I just thought someone would get it (from the movie) :

Buford Justice: The goddamn Germans got nothin' to do with it!

Route

Can anyone confirm the route from Burns to Klamath Falls? I don't want to ride 100 miles in the wrong direction. Hwy 20 to Bend/ 97 to K-Falls or the Hwy 140 Route?

They're being quiet about the route for a reason but going through Bend would add more miles than the schedule. I guess there's been a few near misses from folks riding along and not thinking that their new bike might stop and handle a little better.

I'll be riding down from Estacada. I'll be milling about since I don't know the area. If you see a lost looking guy on a red 1965 Ducati 250 with an ADV sticker, stop and holler at me.

No one knows the route until they receive instructions the morning.

Here's the quote from the Facebook page why they don't publish. It makes complete sense to me:

There is no malice intended in not publishing our route. We do not publish the route of the Motorcycle Cannonball out of concerns for the safety of our riders. It is our number one priority. It's a wonderful experience for everyone when they meet people long the way, are assisted by enthusiasts, and get to talk about their bikes. We encourage people to come to our stops and meet the riders. Riders love the interaction when it's conducted in a safe environment.

Unfortunately, we have people show up to ride along, sometimes trying to join the group and this puts EVERYONE at risk. Modern day riders rarely realize the nuances involved in jockeying these old machines. It takes space, stopping is slower, and manuvering on a narrow, rough road is dangerous enough without having to avoid some body who zooms up to get a closer look. I have had several riders come to me on both runs and ask if something can be done about this since it scares the hell out of them. The fact that someone cannot understand this, tell me how little they know about riding a vintage bike. We simply ask that everyone please respect our riders.

The riders on them new fangled OHV engines don't realize that just to decclerate with their high compression engines is much more than both the brakes on a vintage bike can do. If a guy in front just lets off the gas, I have to stand on both my brakes to avoid a collision and still I pass him like a paycheck. And my brakes are as good as they come! Not fun to ride behind!

Makes sense to me. Good to get that info out there. Kinda like riding a fixed gear bicycle and getting mixed up a modern multispeed group ride. Done that a few times.
