    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?

    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.

    Loving Oregon:)

    BUT, I am surprised by the selection, second one in Oregon, such a short time from Redmond? I figured Colorado or North/South of there to be in order again. I like Oregon, always a fine choice. Many won't make it, however from the East, if they came to Redmond and Redmond was VERY fine a rally. Just too soon for many, I'm afraid to ride far west to see the same stuff. Hope not, because the state has sooooooo much to offer, all great. Randy

    Nope, was just there two years ago. It was a great rally but too soon for me. Hopefully the RA will be more central / South US
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Just an hour and a half to the Pacific. Great choice. Nothing beats riding on the Oregon Coast! Spent thirty five years in state of Washington. I will be there!
