It’s All Part of the Adventure – 3 days in the Oregon Backcountry!

A few fellas gather in sunny (now dusty and sometimes on fire) Central Oregon for a three day off-road motorcycle trek into the vast Oregon backcountry.

Night before meet and greet gathering at Dillon’s Grill in Prineville. Notice how clean everyone is. That will change for sure!



Friday morning comes and we begin to assemble. Here’s Todd (left) and Chris, both from Salem. Have shared ride shenanigans with these guys in the past. All eager for more!



Doesn’t Todd look like Bill Paxton? We had problems with groupies along the way. Geesh!



Prineville Paul on the left in the neon (not KTM) orange pants and Kawi Keith chatting with a Harley dude who was somewhat puzzled at what we were doing.



Mark from Silverton. Last time we rode together (a few years ago) he was living in No. Cal. Last year I was parked on the side of the road in Silverton checking a map (it was the only time I had been through Silverton, ever) and, lo and behold, Mark walks up to the truck. Turns out, he had moved there only two weeks prior and just happened to be driving home and noticed my truck at the intersection. Small world.



Tim from San Diego in his ultra cool camp rig!



Baja Ace ready to roll!



Special thanks to our neighbors Harold and the crew at Giant Loop for the medic bag!



And me with that “not sure how to work the GoPro” look.



Let’s Ride!

Day 1 plan is to head south out of Prineville through Millican and East Fort Rock to East Lake, which sits in the Newberry Crater, and then continue south to Silver Lake by way of Hole in the Ground and Fort Rock. About 170 miles of great riding and sight seeing!

About 13 miles of slab out of PV and we are on power line dirt.



Tim doing a nice job negotiating the hill.



PV Paul.



Need to work on my video skills. Just missed Ace’s hill climb wheelie.



Continuing south toward the cinder cone, here’s Bill Paxton Todd exiting the dirt twisties.



And Mark.



Chris and Ace.



Mountain view shot from a trail ridge.



Todd



Paul



So Cal Tim.



DRZ Mark.



Chris on the Husky.



Ace



A favorite spot is to ride is the top of the cinder cone. Loosey goosey red cinder rock on the way up but spectacular 180 degree views of the Cascades from Bachelor all the way to Hood and Smith Rock.

BP Todd waltzing to the top.



Mark having a little challenge in the loose stuff.



Tim doing a little disco move half way up.



Ace talking an alternative path and trying to ride it all the way on his rear tire.



Views at the top.
