Way out West
Recently visited at the Hospital in Port Angeles and they mentioned that the subs can sometimes be seen transiting the Straight of Juan de Fuca just outside the hospital,presumably to or from their Pacific patrols.
Interesting little side benefit,if I decide to work there in future.

Another Oregon road that I always enjoy is the run up along the Umpqua River Hwy 138 from Roseburg to Diamond Lake. From there it is a short run to Crater Lake and you can then go down along the upper Rogue River, Hwy 62 (Crater Lake Hwy).

Bud:

I know we have PM'd about this, but it may be of some use to other individuals.

There used to be a sticky in the FAQ section that I can't find any more, but I frequently use the America's Byways, Butler Maps or Motorcycle Roads Northwest resources to decide what I want to include. Then I ask for advice about suggestions to get from one "must ride" road to another.

But I have the advantage of living close by and I can go in September after the traffic has fallen off.

I wish I could be 1/4 the rider this bike deserves.
