Input on oregon

Well since a thing or two has come to bite me in the ass in the last few days. I was thinking once I am unemployed why not take a LONG trip. I actually have a friend that lives in oregon and it looks like a nice quiet place.

Anyone ever been there. lived there what ever in that state. If I plan on going i will be riding the bike up there and yes I know is going to be long and boring but who cares should make for a interesting run along the way and add something to my life.


Inputs thoughts anything

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

66 mile long on route 732 and 46 from Bend to Crescent and Odell lakes
or Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway

go!!!!

i love oregon (portland specifically) and would live there in a heartbeat. i've been there a few times to visit a friend and did some snowboarding at mt. hood, too. gorgeous country up there. there are lots of cool roads (that i saw at least) and the entire state has a super-friendly and chill vibe.

the rain really isn't *that* bad either, although wet-weather gear would certainly be a must. it doesn't pour buckets like it does in the midwest. rather, it will drizzle for a little while, then stop and the sun will come out. the locals don't even carry umbrellas...they just put on a hat and deal with it.

My friends and I rode the coast from coos bay to astoria, taking 101 northward for the vast majority. was a fun ride but the sea spray and sometimes cooler temps in the wooded areas got to me after a while. heading south into cali would have been a more interesting path but we were headed to portland so...

i guess 101 gets twisty when it gets into cali, i wanna go back

I've done alot of long distance motorcycle touring...Get the most detailed maps you can, and map out a route off of the interestates, and just explore as you go on your way. For instance Rt 12 west will take you through South Dakota, off the beaten path and you'll get to see S.D...not just the tourist traps. On the way west or on the way back you could visit The Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, The Custer battlefield at the Little Bighorn, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone Park, Rocky Mountain National Park etc. There is so much you can route yourself through as you make your way to Oregon. I have always considered watching the Rocky Mountains grow into the horizon from the seat of a motorcycle one of the 3 biggest thrills in motorcycling!
Only 2 bits of advice: Get the best motorcycle specific rain gear you can afford with rubber boots like totes to put over your riding boots AND...when you pack your clothes...roll them tightly instead of folding them, you'll fit more, and pack them in a thick garbage bag used to line the saddlebags or tank bag no matter how waterproof the maker tells you they are!
Ride Safe!

Not to worried about the rain gear since my fieldsheer gear is water proof. tested those to the limits and as far as the boots i use sealskins which are completely water proof proven by walking in the lake with them. Oldtimer yeah If i go ill set a general path but i have a bad habit of not following directions (stubborn like that) I dont like set paths since i like to explore.

Ask stas took a road and found out my bike was not the best thing in mud hehe and its sinks also (lol)

SD is one i trying to convince fracker to go on since i have never seen the mountains in person only from a distance or a airplane. and I love places like that no one for miles no sirens no nothing you and nature

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

There is a big trail that runs through it. It's called Oregon Trail, you can shoot food and stuff.





I heard it rains a lot. I also heard the snowmobiling is fun in the right parts.

Just got back from that area. Last week there was still plenty of snow in the upper elevations around Crater Lake (by the main roads, not up by the actual lake). Anything above about 6000' was about 50ish degrees. it got a little old after a while. We were about to head west to Yellowstone when we saw they were about to get 4-6" of snow with highs in the lower 30's. We detoured to Utah. We ran into a couple that said they barely got out of the Yellowstone area before they closed the interstate. So pack warm, it can get nasty in June in the mountains.

GO!!

One of my best friends moved out to Washington state, and while i was there visiting we took a run through Oregon to Cannon Beach. It's absolutely beautiful out there.

Definately ride up and down the coast, see Haystack Rock and all the other rock formations on the coast. Astoria isn't too far from Cannon Beach, and it made me think back to my younger days of watching The Goonies
