    Bye bye 2006 F650 GS for a 2011 F650 GS.

    Wow, Oregon must be a hit. 2001 and 2010 were in Redmond, Oregon and now, 2013 in Salem. It is a beautiful state. I made the 2001 National. I've got a year to think about Salem. Planning Missouri for now.

    Never been to Oregon, but I am planning to visit now in 2013! Should we start the weather discussion thread now?

    Everyone should ride Oregon before they depart.

    One of my favorite states.

    Salem: 650 km, yep. Sedalia: 4000km, nope. (btw, I'm planning 18,000 km trip this summer so it's not just the distance)

    Mid-July weather in Salem is typically warm and dry. Expect temps from the mid 60s to mid 80s. It's usually a bit cooler at the coast or in the Cascades at higher elevations. July is a comfortable month in the Willamette valley.

    Until I retire the west coast is a tad out of reach. Company policy is five weeks of vacation a year, but max of two weeks at a time. Hardly leaves any time for exploring the area unless I slab it there and back.

    So for now, west coast rallies are something to look forward to when I'm stuck at home and my wife tells me to go play in the street.
