    Final comments

    Some of these roads are located in remote areas. Please ensure that you and your motorcycle are ready and equipped for all types of road conditons and unforeseen situations. The route has not been pre-ridden, therefore rerouting may be required.

    Sounds like a great ride, but can't sneak away from the family for that long....yet.

    If the weather goes as planned, this will be a fantastic mini tour...jealous!

    Come to think of it, this is something I'd like to do w/my gal when she has some time off. Do you have your route already mapped out on Google maps,etc?

    Shizen!! If I a couple of days notice I might have been able to pull this one off.

    Oh well, next time.

    Have to spend some quality time with the spouse, to earn brownie points for summer.

    Sorry for the short notice fellas. I got an early parole from the war department. She says as long as I am back early in the week to build the new fence, I'm good to go!!

    Ryan , The Devil already has me on his short list!!

    Another ride is already planned for a seven day, late June adventure sport tour. More of Oregon State. The northeast part of the state has some of the best. John Day will be the hub for day rides from there.

    just curious, does 1700km of riding over three days at the pace on windy roads really equal 10-12 hour days?

    I am thinking of a tour myself and am curious about budgeting riding time..

    A lot of factors to consider with this type ride and road. The most important is not to set your time or distance in stone. Ride at your own pace and expect the unexpected.

    If you have not done any type of endurance riding in the past, then I would suggest cutting distance and time way down until you find what fits for you

    Have you invented a new class of motorcycling. Adventure sport touring. What take the sport bikes on dirt roads. Always makes for an interesting tour.

    DJ, I use to have trips planned out to the T. After having my wheel bearings fail around Hells Canyon, I have learned to not be constrained by an iterary. Plan the trip and judge your time lines and distances. Then let it unfold on the excursion.

    After having bike problems I rode an unplanned route of Hwy 74 Scenic Byway from Hells Canyon up through Ukiah. Not a bad route.

    I have not yet ridden the roads south of John Day.

    These are rated high.

    All good advise for the long haul ride. I stole the 'AdventureTag' from this months CYCLE CANADA magazine. The question they posed was can you still have an adventure without getting your trousers dirty?
    Apparently Honda Canada thinks so with their CBF 1000. That's what they call it!!

    My ride will not include any intentional gravel bits, but you never know what is around the next corner.

    June 23 to th 27th is the John day ride.

    Oregon Motorcyclist is an excellent source as well as the Benchmark Atlases for this type of remote paved backroads
