The wife and I just got back from a wonderful 3-day trip through parts of central Oregon. We flew up to Portland, rented bikes, and toured with our closest friends. Our travels included Mount Hood and Timberline Lodge, down to Redmond, over to the Lava Fields and McKenzie Pass, Batchelor Mountain, Santiam Pass, Bend, and Detroit Lake. Awesome scenery, and definitely cooler than the 105+ temps we've been having here in Texas. McKenzie Pass, it turns out, is not for the "faint of heart". Many blind curves, 180-degree curves, and gravel in many of the turns. What a rush! And, the Lava Fields were absolutely amazing. The Harley dealers in Oregon are apparently getting out of the rental business, but we found a small operation called Oregon Motorcycle Rentals just outside Oregon City that was excellent to work with. The owners were very helpful with tips on routes to take, provided bikes in great condition, and were very friendly. We would definitely rent from them in the future if the opportunity presents itself. If you're in the Redmond, OR area, I would recommend stopping in at "Three Creeks" for a bite to eat.
