Exact date depends on who else joins. I'm open to 18 or 19th departure. Would likely arrive at the St Helens turnoff around midday. Again, can't say that there will be time to play. We historically try to get into northern Oregon the first day. Typically 6 to 8 hours of saddle time per day.

I was waiting for more people to chime in before booking nights and confirming details, but at this rate i'll have to start doing that myself and hope that anyone who wants to join late can still fit in.

St. Helens is right by the border with Oregon so thats not a problem Freek. Figure a hour and a half to do the trip up St. Helens and back down, with sightseeing included (snap pictures, bathroom break and remount).

I do understand about wanting to blast out the miles on the first part of the trip so that you are assured of getting there on schedule, and if you guys want we can do the St. Helens run on your way back up.

If you do it on your way back up, I would recommend spending a day and night at Great Wolf Lodge and enjoying the largest indoor water park in the US. It just opened a few months ago, and I'm taking my family there sunday. Figure around $250 US dollars ($15 canadian or so ) for the hotel room that takes 6-8 people, with water park free. You can only get into the water park if you get a room, but for you guys I'm sure a nice room and recreation break would be more than welcome. They even have spa and massage services for PK.

Then when you leave I meet you at the hotel and take you guys on a trip to St. Helens, then slog it up I-5 to Marysville where we grap Highway 9 (the famous windy stretch following I-5) and I'll throw in some just off highway 9 roads to keep it interesting. By the time you hit Burlington you guys would only be an hour or so behind what a straight I-5 drive would have entailed, and will have a smile on your face and stories to tell. It's why you buy sport bikes, right?

h, that's not as long a trip as i thought. perhaps i'll be able to squeeze that in. will have to think about it some more.

Doubt I could do it on the way back tho (maybe others could). I have to get home by the 24th to get to this:

Because we start from so many different locations it would be nice if there were a bunch of planned stops so we could get there ahead of the group and join in. I would probably ride North and over to the coast and try to hook up.

I will certainly have a set plan with overnight arrangements booked ahead of time, so that is definitely a possibility. Based on previous years it will likely be something along the lines of:

Day 1: Thru Seattle ending in north Oregon
Day 2: Oregon coast or I5 to Grant's Pass and over to coast, night somewherr between Crescent City and Eureka
Day 3: Down the coast, maybe a little play back and forth to the 101, night anywhere from Fort Bragg to Petaluma
Day 4: thru SF and down the coast to Laguna

Will set exact route based on desired outcome and any other input from whoever signs up.

Well, fish & PK have left, and I'm heading out the door. Deathpulse, Ted, anyone else, if you figure out a plan, post up. I'll check the thread once a day to see if we can get a meeting point done. I'll be at Dino's south of Portland tomorrow night, then aiming for normal the next day. Last night, who knows. Hope to see some of you out there.
