    If you can't go fast with 100hp, you can't go fast with 200hp.

    SHip the bike at least one way and FLY. Save you 3-4 days on the road each way.

    Shipping a hack is prohibitively expensive, and flying with a dog is an ordeal. Every pee break means we have to go back thru security screening. Besides, the journey is at least half the fun. I can't imagine shipping a rig or trailering it would be even a tenth as much fun!

    On the other hand, my contribution at work in the past year has been so great my boss is thinking I might deserve three consecutive weeks off. It might come together afterall.

    I'm hoping to work this one into my schedule. Salem is just a hop and a skip from my new home in Southern Oregon.

    Way back roads

This route is all paved and mostly (way) back roads.

    Another ride report in the coast range will highlight a convoluted route of paved forest roads in the Siuslaw National Forest. (I wasn't lost, I took the long way)

    Oregon around the Rally location has some great riding.


    My response...
    There are more way back roads than anything else here in Oregon. Really there are just too many to report. GPS works well here, just point your bike in one direction and ride. Just watch out for the microbrews, localvore food oddities and espressos everywhere.
    Just don't forget to take some time on the coast, and southern Oregon.

    Not sure I'd like to do the coast in the summer. Too many RVs but beautiful if you can get there.
