1000mi Oregon Outback Loop From Bend

Actual unfiltered 7day track log from my 2010 wr250r 1000 mile loop starting/ending in Bend OR. Route is 50+% 2 track/cow trail, and 40% forest service type roads, and approx ~10% pavement connectors. Would not recommend a bigger (400lb+) GS type bike for much of this route unless your bike is really setup for technical riding (shocks,tires,etc). Warning due to the remote nature of much of this route, plan for camping and the need to carefully manage your water and gas for 220+ mile legs between stops.

Planned route was gleaned from various sources (eg, bend hookaguy(sp?), OBDT, TAT, Google Maps, Benchmark TOPOS, etc). Invested countless hours in route planning, although during actual ride we did a lot of dead reckoning so some route sections may vary from other known online sources. Tracks 5 and 6 were interupted with heavy rain and lightning, so planned camping stop for day 5 at hart mt hot springs was not made.

Awesome ride!!! Hopefully, time permitting a ride report will follow later this 2010 fall/winter.

- Blue are odd ride days (1,3,5,7) and red are even (2,4,6)
- Used Bigdogs patented service waypoint naming convention; G=Gas, F=Fuel, and L=Lodging
