we headed for Hells Canyon the next day but took the long way around
so we would end in Enterprise OR we also took a side trip up to the damn(opps... wrong turn that turned out to be another perfect road)

Josh makes the 12R look small.

the second night was spent in a Tee-Pee nobody got any sleep

map from the day- the road through the park was broken up concrete and black top but the tires where so hot you couldn't even touch them; they were sticking to everything

the next day we went up through Rattle snake ridge/canyon and it some of the most pictured motorcycle highway and by this time we were all pretty much doubling what ever the corner signs warned.

then it all ended up in Lewiston/Clarkston for lunch and we hit the Old Spiral HWY just north of where the Snake & Clearwater rivers join

I would hate to live up here, there were a few houses right on the corners & and there are some Utube vid's that are a little embarrassing to the producers .......lots of noise but no speed and everyone cutting corners-
WE did make a little noise but flew down and stayed in our own lanes.
