Travel options when time is short.
Those that don't have the time to travel both ways via MC should consider fly and ride, rally train, or rental. In the past I've purchased two bikes close to rally sites and ridden them home, sell it when you get home or add it to your collection. Where there is a will there is a way.
Oregon has so many great roads and such geological diversity that you really should start your research now. Coast roads, lava beds, forest logging roads, scenic byways along rivers and streams, heck we even have covered bridges and Salem is close enough to Eugene that you can get some Tie Dyed hippy gear... Don't Bogart those Brownies.
