These images are from the 2016 Hell's Canyon Motorcycle Rally held July 7-10th 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 getting to the rally, but was then joined by Randy and Jodie Harrison and Chip and Shari Keyes (all of us friends from the Intermountain Chapter of the Harley Owner's Group). I left on Thursday riding through Emmett, Cambridge, Hell's Canyon, Joseph, Enterprise, Elgin, LaGrande and then into Baker City. On Friday we all rode to Hells Canyon Dam taking the same route down and back. On Saturday we took my favorite route up through Sumpter (with a stop to tour the dredge), then on to Granite and Ukiah (where we ate lunch and waited for a thundershower to pass over). After that it was on to my favorite stretch of road in this area - FS-51 ending at Anthony Lake before heading back into Baker City. On Sunday we woke to quite a bit of rain so we decided to ride back home taking the freeway. This was also the quickest way to get back to my wife Peggy that day was our 39th anniversary and she gave me this trip as a present! My 2014 Road King did great the whole trip. I put a total of 909.2 miles on it. The images can be viewed in 2D or a variety of 3D formats. Just click on any image and it will open in an HTML5 viewer. The default is set to open in single image 2D format. Click on the help button to see instructions on how to use the viewer. These images were taken with my new Panasonic Lumix GX7 twin rig. The first few images were taken with the cameras on a custom made bracket that staggers the cameras and gives a n 89mm lens spacing. The rest of the images were taken with the cameras side by side on a dual slide bar with lens spacing from 134mm to 380mm. The cameras are synced by a special circuit made for me by Max Pow from New Zeland. You can see more info on the camera here.
