The plan for this thread will be one a little different than others. Itís a compilation of excursions into Owyhee country from past and future, solo and group, good and bad (if a bad ride is even possible).
Owyhee country includes Owyhee County, Idahoís second largest county with a total population of a little more than 10,000; Malheur County in southeast Oregon; and some of northern Nevada. Itís desolate country. There are places here that are reportedly further from pavement than anywhere else in the lower 48. Itís largely public land rich in ranching and mining history. Much of the region was declared Wilderness Area
in 2009 and can no longer be explored on motorcycles or even bicycles.
