Portland Area Labor Day Ride

Quick survey on how many people would be interested in a one day ride at the Brown's Camp OHV area. Ride will probably be on Sunday and meet around 9:00 AM in the Roger's Camp parking lot for a 50-60 mile ride. This is not meant to be a major function, just an area get together to put names to faces. If interested, please PM me, do not reply to this message. If support is great enough, I will iron out the details. Include how many people you plan on bringing.

Any possibility on a Monday ride/Labor day?

I won't be able to do a Monday ride as we will be having football practice for our kids. I might camp and pre-ride Saturday and mark the trail if my buddy wants to help out.

ThumperTalk Labor Day Ride for the PNW

When: Sunday September 1: Meet at 9:00AM,

leave for ride 9:30-10:00.

Where: Roger’s Camp Staging area approximately

35 miles west of Portland, OR on

Highway 6.

Directions: From Portland: I-5 to the I-405 S exit towards Beaverton. After crossing the 405 bridge, take the Highway 26 exit west towards Beaverton. Proceed on highway 26 until you reach the exit for highway 6 (approx. 20 miles) towards Tillamook. Take highway six to the coast range summit (20 miles?) where you will see the Brown’s Camp/Roger’s Camp sign. Turn left at covered gravel pit, then immediately turn left into the Roger’s Camp staging area.

What to expect: 50-60 miles of intermediate to difficult terrain, which could take up to 6

hours to complete in a large group. Trails will not be suitable for novice riders or quads, terrain can be steep and is very rocky. Trails are open (yes I have checked), though spark arrestors are strictly enforced. Sound level is 99dB max and helmets are required. You must have current ORV tags from your state. This is not an “organized” event, there will be no sweep crew, no support crew, and no gas truck.

What to bring: Pack water and lunch, we will eat on the trail. You may wish to pick up a free map at one of the small stores (such as Glenwood) on the way.

Questions: PM r4sbergxr600 with any



Just got the 400 back from the shop, new clutch and top end gaskets, was scared and thought I would have to ride my xr600.

I hope to make sunday, although there is still the chance of a monkey wrench goofing things up

Damn it, you just hurt my 93 XR600's feelings. Almost like you are saying he is inferior to your 400 :) So what if he is fat and slow! Hope to see you there. Ryan

I am in. See you there
