Well lets stay in touch and see if it works out to travel down together.

Western Canada Roll Call!

Not confirmed yet but I'm also keen on joining in this ride. Depending if I can get time off work.
My plan was to hit the TCT and the KVR to Osoyoos and shoot down from there, hopefully meet up with Apple Jam and his group.

Will keep an eye on what plans the Islanders and Loopers are up to, and go from there.
I wonder how many DSBCers will be heading down there.

Turns out I'm not gonna have a whole bunch of time before the rally, it looks like I have to work right up until the 11th, I'll have to do my playing around in the 2 weeks after.

There is camping at Devil's Lake which is a few minutes closer; here is the link.

http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c5/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gDfxMDT8MwRydLA1cj72 BTSw8jAwgAykeaxcN4jhYG_h4eYX5hPgYwefy6w0H24dcPNgEH cDTQ9_PIz03VL8iNMMgycVQEAIzTHkw!/dl3/d3/L2dJQSEvUUt3QS9ZQnZ3LzZfME80MEkxVkFCOTB

It's primitive but beautiful (like a lot of you guys I know!).

P.S. There is also camping at Sparks Lake. There are more spaces here than at Devils Lake. For dispersed camping you might check out the area around Benham and Dillon Falls. It's a lot closer to Bend than these camping areas. We don't camp out there so I don't know what's "legal", but it's a great area for riding, too.

Ditto on that! Really sucks that they don't do one closer to the east coast.
I would really like to go to Oregon and attend the Rally but its over 2500 miles away.
Just don't think I can pull that off this year.

There are literally thousands of campsites within an hour of Bend. There are some great dispersed (read free) campsites within a few minutes of the Mt Bachelor Village location of the event as the border of the Deschutes National Forest is maybe 5 minutes from the resort. The resort is kind of on the west edge of town but it's easy to drop down the hill across the Deschutes River into the Old Mill District (lots of restaurants, bars, shopping for the Mrs, etc) or into town. There's about 7 brew pubs within 10 minutes.

I've lived in Bend since 1993. If anybody needs advice or info just shoot me a message and I'll be glad to help out.

Looking forward to the event!

I've been looking forward to this since I first heard it was being hosted in Bend. Short ride for me, but I guess that will save me money.

I've been to a couple KTM events. You can test ride most of their street legal machines, go on 'organized' rides in the area or just take a route map and explore on your own. Dinner every night is a gathering of like-minded KTM enthusiasts sharing the days' experiences and bs'ing. It's fun - there are a ton of sights to see around here - just going to Crater Lake for a day is worth the trip!
