IMG_3406The World’s Fair came to Spokane in 1974.  Forty years later the first tri-state Pacific Northwest HOG rally came to town and is now in the books!

Several of us rode up and took part in the event along with over 1600 other attendees plus a mix of locals and volunteers.

Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson hosted the PNW HOG Rally at its 11-acre complex. The rally had good music, food, refreshments and local vendors from the biking community.  At one point there were over a 1,000 motorcycles parked on the grass in front of Lone Wolf H-D to enjoy the festivities.

A job well done!

A few of us stopped in at Cruisers on the state line where many roads lead there and one that goes right through the joint.  I’m not sure if my hearing will recover from either the band or the deafening loud pipes as folks motored through.

What: Oregon State H.O.G. Rally

When:  Thur.  July 10 – Sat. July 12th.

Where: Pendleton to Mt. Hood to Seaside

Pendleton, OR is where the annual Rodeo and Round-up happen.  It’s a cowboy town and on Thursday, July 10th the Harley rally, shall we say “gallops” into town?  There’s a lot to see, from the Underground Tours to brothels of yesteryear – a lot of history.

Then on Friday it’s head-out West toward the Cascades and over Mt. Hood to The Resort at The Mountain.   At this destination you can throw down a bedroll and do the camping gig or wander over to the Resort for premium resort activity.   This location also serves as a secondary registration for the riders who couldn’t get extra days off work and want to start the rally at Mt. Hood.

On Saturday it’s looking for Ocean spray along the coast to Seaside. Riders can bask in all that the beach has to offer from boardwalk and Bike Fest vendors to Crab Cakes. On Saturday night there is a concert and closing ceremonies.  Sunday morning is open and you can stay and enjoy Bike Fest or take a ride down the Oregon coast. Whatever – you chose.

The overall schedule is HERE.  To register call 503.640.2369 or email at ORStateRally@Sunsethog.com  Registration is open until May 22, 2008.
