"recalibrate how safe it is to be riding into the more lawless parts of the state"

Wow. Does that mean "less populated parts of the state"? Or what? We have lots of law all over. Last year we had a bunch from out of state occupy a remote wildlife center at a time when it was not being staffed. They got swept up by lots of law when that could be done with a minimum of gunplay. Or are you thinking about our cities where crime rates can get pretty high? Cycle Oregon brings its own law enforcement team and is able to contact surrounding agencies faster than a cell phone call could manage. Aside from a couple of bars I never thought of myself as being in a lawless part of the state, and I had no problem drinking up and heading back to a safe camp.
