Tell me guys - I've never ridden anything west of Missouri.......is this worth hauling the 990 ADV all the way in from Virginia to do the event? I'm considering it - but its a long ways away.

Small group of us 990-types were already plotting a dirty group ride from Hood River to Bend.
Campout and BBQ at my place, the night before we go

That's an OPEN invitation, for anyone biking it through Hood River area, on their way to this gig, BTW.

I would love to go on this adventure; pitty it's on the other side of the globe though. The entry fee is no problem but the gas money to get there and back is a bit daunting

This one is really tempting. I like the Bend area, no shortage of woods riding I bet. Good brewery up there, too!

I have been to two of them now and had a blast both times. I keep pushing my limits and realiseing they are way beyond what I though. I reccomend the rally's highly. Food has been excellent both times as well

Meet me in WI Early Sept, for a fun ride out.... Well at least once we get past the plains...... Don't forget the nobbies and tent.

WI to Canada / Washington boarder to start to the WABDR. Riding South.

Be great to meet the group from Hood River and ride south with them. When would you leave Hood River Apple Jam?

You owe it to yourself to ride it there. There is nothing more spiritual than a coast/coast tour aboard your motorcycle. The rally is just an excuse to do it.

I bought my Adventure in 2005. After a couple short trips to get used to her, I rode from Boston to Monterey to watch MotoGP. Nine days of spectacular riding and 3 days of MotoGP. Nicky Hayden won. Then I stored the bike for about six weeks while I flew home. In September of that year, I rode her back home.

The route west was through the Northern Plains: Badlands, Wounded Knee, Black Hills, Little Big Horn. From Sheridan, WY it was two lane all the way to the coast. Yellowstone, Tetons, Idaho, Nevada, Yosemite and finally Carmel, CA.

The trip home took 9 days and I spent half of them poking along Southern Utah, AZ and NM: Grand Canyon, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Mexican Hat, Mokee Dugway, Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, Shiprock, Taos Pueblo, Angel Fire, Cimarron, and a beeline east through St Louis to Boston. Basically the Old Santa Fe Trail.

Lots of amazing places to see between the coasts. Plenty of groomed dirt roads to connect as well.

You'll be riding about three weeks to make the trip and back. I've done that before a couple times. It's a good experience.
