New improved speed limit on 197

Starting today, the speed limit on 197 south out of The Dalles (to Bend and beyond) has been raised from 55 (boo!) to 65 (YEA!!!). Other areas are seeing higher speed limits, as well. Like I84 east bound out of The Dalles, now 70mph.

This will allow The Dalles riders to maintain their strict adherence to all vehicular rules and regulations, while covering more distance in less time.

Sometimes progress is beneficial.

They have really treated it like for a while haven't they? It's good that's official and legal now, but I travel to Bend a lot for work and on 26 east of the pass I've gone 70 past OHP and they haven't batted an eye. It's the sheriff close to Madras that is the pain.

The year I get hired outside Oregon they raise it. That stretch between Pendleton and Ukiah was hell. Eastbound out of Burns was pretty rough too.

No, they most certainly have not. At least not the northern part of Wasco County (specifically HWY 197).

Also, this was mentioned in another thread (should probably have been x-posted here as well.)
edit: OR speed limit increase

I don't understand. Did you get an award for your riding skills on 197?
