About Us
We at Eyes On Wheels believe in the power of good people doing good things together. Good people doing good things makes our communities safer, more energetic, and encourages people to give back. Most community organizations see a wide variety of backgrounds in their volunteers. It just so happens that Eyes On Wheels is a collection from various motorcycle communities, encompassing dirt, street, casual, Iron Butt, and numerous brand-related riders..

We have all joined forces to provide mobile observation during several of Oregon's most beloved and well-known events.
