Driveth thee to Newberg, OR! Then head west to Carlton on a nice, twisty road. Continue thru Carlton, heading west on NW Meadowlake Rd, which turns into Nestucca River Rd, which is an even nicer twisty road. Somewhere before Blaine, the pavement will end for a few miles. On my '96 Shadow 1100 A.C.E. it was sketchy and super slow going; on a Vstrom it'll be almost like pavement. :-) After the dirt ends, be prepared for several miles of one of the finest, smoothest, most hidden and amazing roads in all of Oregon! Keep going west on that till you get to Beaver (the pavement will have gotten pretty bad by then), then turn North and head to: Tillamook! I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Tillamook!
Visit the Tillamook Air Museum
; one of a handfull of remaining Blimp Hangers in the USA.
Visit the Tillamook Ice Cream Factory
From there, head west to the 101 and go either north to Astoria (already mentioned) or south to...San Diego. :-)
I'm also a fan of the Hood River Highway, Silver Creek Falls (amazing twisty road and beautiful scenery), and of course Multnomah Falls
I lived in Newberg for 27 years. I absolutely hated the weather, but I always said: It doesn't matter which way you go from Newberg; every road is an amazing motorcycle road!
