    John Day Riding:


    1. From a local rider: 'you must get gas at every opportunity in this country. I don't care if you just need a gallon. I've seen many a friend run out because they thought that they had enough. Sometimes stations are closed because uncle bob died, or some other emergency.'

    2. From a local rider: 'the road from Sumpter to Ukiah used to be epic, but they tore it up last year ---- DO NOT TRAVEL ON THIS ROAD [Emphasis added]'


    Routes/loops provided disclaimer:

    Although I have confidence in the the information, it is not mine. I grabbed it from the Internet, so be prepared for surprises if you use them, or do some personal investigation of on your own beforehand.

    Must Ride Roads - From a local rider:

    395 from Mt. Vernon, to Pendelton

    245 from Unity to Hwy 7 - 'what we call Dooley Mountain Raceway'

    19 from just west of Dayville heading west to Fossil - 'is a road created for motorcycle riders, mostly deep canyon along the John Day River'

    In Fossil, head west on 218 to Shaniko - 'my personal favorite/personal racetrack as the corners are high banked and fast'

     Baker Truck Corral and Restaurant, just across the highway from Motel 6 in Baker City, has good grub and friendly service.

     +1 to keeping your tank topped up.
