    Inmates, I am looking for a route from Bend to the coast (Florence, Lincoln City). The more off road the better.

    We are riding from Denver to the Oregon Coast along the TAT. Then headed from Port Orford to Bend along this route or something similar. Not really sure how much is dirt or if all the roads are open, but we are going to try.

    I tried to attach a GPX file, but I do not see it here.

    Yes, that's easy. Just open the GPX file in Google Earth Pro. Be sure to uncheck the "Create KML Tracks" and check "Create KML LineStrings" checkboxes first:

    If I had GE Pro I could. When I click the link it opens google maps and shows your routes but I can't seem to do anything after that other than look at it. If I could access the gpx files I could use base camp. I guess I don't know what I'm doing. Sort of new stuff to me.

    Did 130 mile loop yesterday and found OBCDR 6 blocked off out past Soup Creek. Could not get my 1190 around it. Had to turn around and rode home via Loon Lake and then back 101. Not sure why but there must be a slide somewhere. They blocked the road off pretty good and it's clear that it was meant to block even motorcycles. Going to see if I can figure out an alternate route.
