These images are from the 2015 Hell's Canyon Motorcycle Rally held July 9-13th in Baker City, Oregon. I stayed at the Baker City Blue Door Inn B&B and would highly recommend this to anyone who is going to Baker City. This year I was on my own the entire trip and all the rides. I left on Thursday riding through Emmett, Cambridge, Hell's Canyon, Joseph, Enterprise, Elgin, LaGrande and then into Baker City. On Friday I did the poker run extending the route quite a bit. The route was on 203 through Medical Springs, Union, then 237 to North Powder and Anthony Lakes. From there I veered off and went north on 52 to Ukiah, then over 244 to 51 and down to Granite and Sumpter where I picked up 7 back to Baker City. On Saturday I decided to go to a whole new place. I started out going down Highway 7 and taking 245 (the famed Little Dragon - 188 corners in 14 miles) ) to 26 just above Unity. From there I went to John Day and on to the Fossil Beds where I took 19 to Kimberly, then 402 to Long Creek catching 395 to Mt. Vernon. This got me back on 26 through John Day, but before I got to Unity I turned off on 7 and took it back to Baker City. On Sunday I rode back home taking the freeway so I could get back to my wife Peggy. You see, Friday the 10th was our 38th anniversary and she gave me this trip as a present! This was my first big trip with the new 2014 Road King and it did great, even with all the rain, and sections of gravel on Road Rash Pass. I put a total of 1077.4 miles on it and it is now ready for its 5000 mile service. The images can be viewed in 2D or a variety of 3D formats.
