Rally HO!!!! Pendleton, Oregon was the gateway for western travelers as they sought the riches and opportunities of the Oregon Territory back in the 1800’s. So what an appropriate place for HOG riders to assemble with their steel steeds to set aside a few days to regain sanity with some western hospitality served up by the Oregon HOG Rally.
We’ll treat you to some western culture you may have only seen in TV ‘westerns’. We will gather together at the Wildhorse Resort & Casino - this year’s base camp for our festivities. We are deep into the planning stages so stay tuned for more good news to follow. While we camp at the Resort there will be plenty of riding in the back country as well as some awesome adventures in and around Pendleton. So check back often as we assemble a fun packed western experience for the 2013 Rally.
