OBDR gps routes

Hello fellow Inmates
I know its last minute (couple days left! haha)
Me and buddy are leaving from Vancouver Can, this Friday (Sept 2nd) and plan on doing the WADBR trail from North down and then link up with the OBDR trail from Walla walla down. I am wondering if anyone has or can direct me to the GPS tracks for the OBDR trails . I am using the Zumo 550. I already have the tracks for Washington. Very excited as its my first real trip on my KTM 990R. I have done some short trips but not all kitted up. My friend is on a KTM 950s and was in the Get lost Oregon video. But since he has sent in his Zumo back to Garmin for a referb and has lost the trails.
(His Zumo looks great!)
Cheers

Well it look like I just had to do a little more digging. There are a few threads out there. Like I would be the only one,lol. Anyways answering my own questions.
I found a few that have been posted and for the most part look like enough to go by. I will try to link everything up and see what kind of route can be put together. If there is a place to buy that anyone knows, I am all ears!

i haven't found complete .gpx routes but the maps are cheap to buy and then you could create your own. http://www.oohva.org/Back%20Country/BCDRmain.html

The BDR collective has a OR BDR planned for the future but i don't have a timeframe.

A few deviations, but I rode virtually the entire north/south route about five years ago. Here is link to thread with tracks.

I just got home from running the OBDR rte 3 South to North and the WBCDR
I used Jerry's tracks for the OBDR and they were spot on.

On the OBDR there are some seasonal closures on the route South of Wickiup Lake to Cresent junction.
Big signs will let you know when you get there.The main roads are open just most of the secondary routes so it is simple to find your way if you choose to comply with the closures.

stormdog screwed with this post 09-01-2011 at 08:51 AM Reason: should read route 3 not route 2

I'll be running the Route 3, 4, and 5 (from Seneca up) using these tracks, modified to start at the orignial OBDR 3 just outside of Ashland. I'll try and report up after I'm done.

Thanks but to be clear, I only combined many other rider's tracks to document the system. It is still on my Bucket list. Thanks for confirmation and and corrections.

Also, someday I will get new PC so I can look at dualsportmaps.com without locking up and see all the other good stuff.

I found I had to use Google Chrome to look at dualsportmaps.com. It works satisfactorily.

I too had lockup problems with Windows Explorer on my 9 year old XP machine. In fact Google Maps never seems to work the way I would like on my desktop.

Thinking of doing same thing this summer. Looking at completing loop using Modoc SMTS in CA. Would like to compare plans if possible.

Yup, heading out the end of July. Here is the basic plan: http://www.dualsportmaps.com/?link=110681

Yea D-Stylz, that looks like a great route, I just did the northern section of route 5 from wallawalla to Seneca, we had a great time, but it took longer than we had planned, I donít know if youíve been on route 5 north of Seneca or not, but Crane crossing on the north fork of the Malheur river is pretty damn gnarly, especially the trail going down to the river, the river level should be down by the end of July, it was knee deep when we crossed, my water proof boots hold water really well ha,ha,. The first crossing coming your direction is the Malheur Ford, itís a piece of cake compared to Crane. The rest of the route is in good shape, one little section north of unity has very deep new gravel but itís only a couple miles long,, I think your rout is something I might have to do,,, have fun,,,
