I don't see anything other than Harleys out here. Not the type of people I would get along with. Not because they ride Harleys, but because they look down on people who DON'T ride Harleys.

Am I alone over here?!

I live in Portland but love riding down the coast when I have time. Did a loop from Tigard --> Lincoln City --> Astoria --> Vernonia back to Tigard that was a nice ride.

Really want to head south to the California boarder and do the entire Oregon coast highway. Some day...

I also would love to go to California. I bought the bike in Idaho so that is my experience so far. Through Bend and Eugene. Very fun ride at least, but I'd like more!

One of my favorite rides is between Carlton and Nestucca on Meadowlake road. Stop in and say hello to the ladies at screaming chicken restaurant in Carlton.

My wife and I will be riding up the coast on the 12th of July passing through Coos Bay.... riding from the V-Strom Rally in Fortuna. We're going as far as Newport for the night before turning east to Bend.
Somewhere around Coos Bay might be lunch.... Always great to meet fellow V-Strom riders

Sweet. Well if you are looking for food suggestions, City Subs and Coney Station are amazing food!

Camping options around Coos Bay

I'm traveling on the cheap nowadays, and want to get down to NorCal to ride the highway 36/3/299 loop. I've done that trip many times in the past, leaving home east of Portland and riding to Coos Bay where I'd stay the first night at the Best Western. Now, I want to find a campground somewhere in that area to save money.

What about Rooke-Higgens up the Millicoma toward Allegany? What's it like? Are there any other campgrounds that won't be filled with RVs and damn-near-motel-rates cost?

Steve, if I wasn't swamped for the next month or so I'd meet you up there. Hopefully you will find some takers. Some great riding there but probably pretty toasty inland now

Not sure when I'll be taking the trip. Probably won't be until mid-July at the soonest. Bummer you won't be able to meet me. Yeah, the interior gets pretty warm, especially around Weaverville. Ah, well. The price we pay for one of the best riding loops around.

Just a quick update, the Rooke & Higgens Coos County Park along highway 241, the Millicoma River route, appears to be abandoned and derelict. I visited the park the weekend of July 7/8, 2018 and it hasn't been maintained for perhaps a year or so, and is falling into disrepair.
