Hi. I just got back into riding after a long hiatus and I'm looking for some people to ride with in, or around Portland, OR. I'm free most weekends and can play hooky if there's something really good going on.

I know this thread might be a tad old, but I'm looking to ride around the Portland, OR area and perhaps on the vancouver, WA side.

Let me know if anyone is available!

I'm in Hillsboro, went against advice from this forum (and my best judgement), and went out to Roger's Camp OHV area today by myself. Did a loop from the staging area along the firebreak 1 road, then went up the firebreak road again but took a right at the top on an ATV trail. Had a lot of fun, it was enough that my hands were sore after the first loop. I love that I was able to whip right back onto the highway and crank down the mountain curves at 70+. It would be nice to find some other riders.

PNW you live in the Mecca of motorcyledom for our poor little state! No doubt we can find you locals!

I lived in PDX for most of my years.....until Columbia County educated me about what "rain" really was! As a weather refugee, I then located someplace where my webbing could dry out for a while. Now, it's all cracked and gone!

I've had dual sports of various ills for a while.....this is just my first KLR. By FAR and away, the very coolest part is toolin down a backroad and following the USFS or BLM road you've never seen. I will tolerate a mediocre amount of power, bouncy suspension, and high-wear knobbies for the outcome-anytime! It's just a bad idea to go the risk solo.

Let's see what we can do to prop this thread up in the results and lure some like-minded fools out to muddy our steeds!
