OBDR Suggestions...

Hey all,

So a Triumph Scrambler, V-Strom, 990 Adventure and an XT225 want to get some OBDR action. What route do you guys suggest for say a Sat-Tues ride starting in Portland?? I purchased all the way points and we are trying to plan a route. We may change it up to lighter bikes and a Ural rig but still deciding. Thanks for your input.

Terry

Sat-Tue? Only Four days? From Portland? Counting transit time?
That leaves you with NO time to do Route 3 or 5, and 2 is too far away for the start.

Consider just doing Route 4, starting just NW of Sisters, and ending in Seneca.
It's prettier and more forested,
...especially in the second half in the Ochocos, and much closer to home.

...and/or...I just happen to know all about an off-road 3 day long CDR Route to get you the looong way from Hood River to Sisters
One more day'll get you back home in time for dinner on Tuesday.

"Trek Now", I'm guessing

Crown Jewels

I really like Route 3 which OOHVA calls the "Crown Jewels" and travels along the Cascades. You could start or end at Big Lake near Hoodoo ski area. However, I like to start East of Ashland down Hwy 66 at Hyatt Lake. Have fun and happy trails!

Good Route, especially the Southern end,
but they'll burn a whole long day on pavement just getting to/from Ashland,
and/or half a long day to/from Big Lake.

Short vacations suck. Take a month. Do ALL of Oregon

You can do any of them if you're up for riding for five hours the first day. You can get to Ashland from Portland in five hours (more or less). Stay near Greensprings or Hyatt Lake that first night and you're golden. If you do Section 3, you're half-way home at the end and close to going over to I-5 and getting home in several hours. You've got three days to do the section and get home. There are plenty of services if you need something for your bikes, food, a shower, whatever. The only crap part would be slabbing for five hours that first day down to Ashland. The rider of the XT225 will hate riding to Ashland, I'm guessing.

Thanks Aces,

Yeah the XT guy would hate it. But he is 16 and young enough to forget the pain.
