Ready to Roll

Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally

The number of motorcycles might not be the only record set this weekend in Baker City.

How about tents?

The grassy fields around Baker High School resemble nothing so much the camp firefighters assemble when a big blaze is going.

Steve Folkestad, who with his brother, Eric, started the Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally, expects as many as 8,000 riders to converge on Baker City this weekend.

A goodly percentage of that number was already here this morning, based on the frequency of Harley V-Twin reverberations bouncing off downtown buildings.

Although motorcycles will be parked along Main Street (closed to other traffic) all weekend, the official show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday.
