OBDR - Non Street Legal/Off Road Only Bikes

How much of the Oregon BDR can be done on non-plated bikes? What sections offer the most non-plated miles/scenery?

I did 1200 miles of it last summer and wouldn't attempt any of it without being street legal, but you may get lucky.

I was hoping my son could run a portion of it with me. He'd be riding a KLX110. He would get a kick out of camping off the bike.

Let's see...get dropped off at the dunes at Christmas Valley. Stash the little bike near the highway close to Riley, ride two up on your bike to Riley for fuel, come back and cross the highway to re-join the trail to Seneca...have him ride the shoulder into Seneca for fuel, will have to sneak through town, not much bothers them there until some crazy guy starts chopping up a KTM990 with an axe...nice camping spot at the Malheur Crossing. Might be a little harder/further to sneak into Unity, might be a good place to end the trip and get picked up. That's a pretty serious ride on a 110.

Thanks.

I figure we can ride at his pace and if we do any significant length of the route at all he'll be pretty excited about having done it.

Seems like I had read (maybe on OOHVA site?) that much of Route 2 is OHV friendly....but much of it seemed like normal-ish roads to me.

Route 5 from where the dirt starts at the OHV park North of Christmas Valley, North through the Great Sandy Desert to Hwy 20 near Riley should be no problem for no plates. Ain't nuthin' out there 'cept cows, sage, and a few crazy motorcyclists

Somewhere around 100-ish miles of nothing. Bring LOTS of water.

PM me. I'll help you out. I did this with my 12 year old years ago (but seems like yesterday).

See an old RR:

That's exactly the kind of ride I was thinking of.

I grew up in Seneca, people ride dirtbikes, quads, and snowmobiles on public roads all the time. It's even "legal" in John Day, Canyon City, and Prairie City. I have only heard of one ticket, involving a resident too intoxicated to handle a 25cc scooter. The axe guy doesn't live there anymore, bankrupt.
