    That's a 450 but a 690 would work.

    I'm in Bend and would love some routes within 2-3 hours drive/ride. Just started riding motos again after 10+yr hiatus and ready to start exploring. Main ride is a 501 so any mix of dirt roads and trails. Scenic riding mixed with some tech!!

    Maybe not desert, but I'll be riding out of Walton Lake next Friday 6/20. I'm camping there Thurs. night. Walton Lake is East of Prineville about 25 miles in the Ochoccos. I'll be riding the 701.
