Everything is happening on Main Street in Historic Baker City, Oregon. Main Street will be closed to traffic during the rally and will be MOTORCYCLE PARKING ONLY. Visit the official Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally booth for registration, shirts, maps, and information. Also on Main Street is the Vendor Village and High Desert Harley-Davidson with a complete showroom, motorclothes, service, and of course, the Harley Girls! We’re pleased to announce that both High Desert Harley-Davidson and Sawtooth Indian Motorcycle are the exclusive sponsors of the 2018 rally. Check out the HCMR Schedule below for a schedule of all the fun to be had at this year’s rally.

Remember, open containers are not allowed outside on the street. What does this mean? Don’t bring your beer or drink outside the establishment in which it was purchased. Keep your drinks in the bar! If you’ve been drinking, don’t ride your bike, take our shuttle bus! The shuttle has been a BIG hit every year and really makes the cops happy! Shuttle bus service for registered HCMR riders starts at 3:00 p.m. on Friday until late into the night, with similar hours for Saturday.
