I rode to Salem from Wisconsin by way of Helena, MT and Walla Walla, WA, then on old US 30 from The Dalles to Portland as Ken Hall suggested in [I]Owners News[/I]. Great rides! My return trip went via the Oregon Coast and Redwood Highways to Shasta-Trinity National Forest - where temps were 112 degrees F - to Redding, CA. I cooled down through Lassen National Forest. Rode to Reno, then to Hailey, ID, then to Helena MT, then to Medora ND, then home to WI on Sunday 7/28. All told, 5,800 miles.
