Damn! Folks are coming from all over!
Do you need to sign up before the rally for test rides? Or can we do this once we get there
I'll never miss a chance to go to 10 Barrel Brewery
Day 1 Fernley NV to Lakeview OR
Day 2 Lakeview OR to Bend OR
I want to Leave out Wed morning arriving Thursday afternoon.
I'm planning on doing this but can't leave Reno before Thursday afternoon.
Probably slab it to Medicine Lake or Kalamath Thursday night.
May camp or motel
I'll be leaving Saturday or Sunday arriving at Hood River by Tuesday for the Great Apple Trail to Bend
You cats riding up from the LA area? I'm planning on heading out Wednesday morning, possibly Tuesday night to get some slab covered. I've gotta be back by Monday night, I can haul it home solo if thats too fast. Lemme know.
There are several current and past fires in California, Oregon and Nevada that may get in the way of your route planning.
You can go to:
http://activefiremaps.fs.fed.us/index.php# click on incident
http://inciweb.org and search by incident name if you know it, or by state.
A partial list of closures, check the areas you want to ride through. These block some of th eroutes I was looking into.
The "Reading" fire has closures of all off road north of Lassen Nat Park to Old Station
The "Chips" Fire has closures from the Sierra crest to Lake Almanor north of hwy 70.
The "Rush" Fire is in north east CA, east of 395 and may block routes coming from NV.
The LIST is getting bigger....
The "IN" list........
1) Apple Jam
6) Cyclops Motorsports
7) Konflict Motorsports
11) Nut Clutch
23) Mud Bucket
24) MB's bud Claude
25) MB's bud Jack
26) MB's bud Mark
I'll PM you all with directions/address a couple of weeks before.
(let me know if I got syntax wrong on your screen names, so PMs will be easy for me)
I think this large group (and more!) will be manageable enough, I know my route well,
and will have tried & true actual GPS (GPX/Garmin) tracks.
I think we'll likely split into 5 or so groups, with a leader for each,
...to keep the caravan (bikavan?) moving more efficiently.
We'll get to the KTM Rally Thursday Evening when Registration starts.
I have a VERY close-by forest dispersed campspot picked out,
...so we can get back there early-ish Friday morning
WetFest is the weekend before, and several of us plan to leave from Wenatchee on Sunday.
We'll take portions of the WABDR down to Hood River,
then get to my place early Tuesday evening for a relaxing BBQ and a campfire.
...Then We'll leave Wednesday morning for the dirty two-day trip to Bend
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to this years rally .
Any one hitting the WABDR down from the canadian border down to hood river? My schedule is pretty open and I was thinking of riding that down the week prior. Maybe if I could join this pow wow in hood river too if that's ok?
Aw, too bad. I'm still looking for anyone riding from SLC. Planning on leaving the Tuesday before the rally to take an interesting route.
I might be down for that, but meeting you in the I 90 area?
I was thinking the same - meet up in Ellensburg? What day do you think you would be at this point?
Throwing on a new set of tires and final packing this weekend
Can't wait to hit the road
Soup bone and I are meeting Tuesday in Ontario, CA around 10:00-10:30. Our plan is to slab it up to San Francisco. Tentative route is 10 to 210 to 134 to 101 up to salinas cut over to hwy 1 to Santa Cruz. Spend the night there. Get up early and take hwy 1 up to San Francisco be at Suderia before they leave. If anyone wants to join up with us send me a pm.
I am probably riding down after wet fest from lake wenatchee. On a blue 990 so if you see me yell!
I can't make it but pre-registered a looong time ago. I wonder if there's a way for someone else to take my spot? I'm not worried about the $$ I wrote it off long ago, if someone can figure out if/how PM me. Pay it forward!
My spot is gone to Hootowl, enjoy it Richard.
Sorry, Charlie... & TN too,
We'll hoist one fo' yous !!
Why, SURE !!
On the list, and PM coming....
WetFest will be at the edge of Wenatchee (the town, not the lake),
Wenatchee is pretty much in the CENTER of Washington.
I'll be leaving there Sunday about noon, to head down South on the parts of the WABDR., camping Sunday and Monday nights on the trail.
Will be back at my place Tuesday afternoon.
