West Vendor / Vendor Event Thread
 
Copied from Neduro's post in Rockies, because I think it's a great idea and it will benefit both local vendors and forum members:

This thread is our attempt at a solution. WEST vendors are welcome to post their events, their test rides and demo days, whatever they can come up with in this thread without fear of breaking the vendor rules.

The guidelines:
Vendors: Show us value and respect and we'll return it. Waste our time with a seething pit of bottom-dwelling commercialism and no one will pay attention and we'll probably eventually tire of it and send you to vendors.

Inmates: This is not the place to put your gripe with the service department or etc. You, after all, are welcome to start a thread on the topic, while the dealers are not. In other words, this is not the place for your pet urinary olympiad, and if you put it here, we'll boot it.

If you own a business and want to invite advriders, please make use of the thread. General SPAM will not be tolerated, and repeated abuse will lead to a ban.

I will un-stick this thread in a week or so, after people notice it.

I'll give it a shot, I've got lots of rides scheduled for 2013
 
Hi guys, Bob here from Ironman Dual Sport. So right now on the Ride Schedule for 2013 I have 7 rides scheduled and soon to add more. I'll start this out easy and start with the month of June. First is the Crown Point Rally, Sunday June 2nd. We're making this ride with several route options, technical single track for the hardcore dirt rider, challenging 2 track for the average Dual Sport Rider who still wants to stay mostly in the dirt. and twisting pavement with a little dirt and great scenery for the Adventure Rider. Plus a great lunch and soon to be collectors items Crown Point Rally event tee shirts are included with the ride. There is also free camping Saturday night before the ride at the staging area, Sorry no room for large RVs.

Next on June 22nd and 23rd The Wildwood 400 is a great ride for all Dual Sport riders, from beginners to expert riders. The 400 mile route is a 50/50 dirt/pavement mix of graded dirt roads, 4X4 roads, and paved roads, some so tight and twisty they are like paved single track. There is also a separate 500 mile Lost Coast/Trinity Alps Adventure bike route with just enough dirt thrown in to add a challenge. Whether you ride the Dual Sport or the Adventure Bike route, or one route one day and the other the next. You'll ride through the most amazing scenery in Northern California. This ride begins and ends at our staging area in Wildwood CA. Where there is free camping Friday night before the ride. Saturday night we stay in Fortuna CA. Ironman Dual Sport will transport your small overnight gear bag to the Eel River Brewery in Fortuna and back to the staging area. All riders are responsible for their own overnight accommodations for info about where to stay in the Fortua area go to www.redwoods.info . Here's a video I made afew years back while pre-riding,

ok then, where is these events staging from!
being from so cal i dont know where these places are
BUT looks like some fun challenging stuff right up our alley:clap

Kali Trailrider 12-06-2012 06:58 PM

Looks like about a 10 hour drive from So Cal.
Northwest of Chico.

The Red Mountain 350 is the ride to look at.
Would be a great way to beat the heat of August in So Cal.
I think MX Bundy did it last year.
Paging Bundy... :ear

How was is it???

Rockgarden Bob 12-07-2012 08:47 AM

A Winner!!!
 
Kali Trailrider, Great to have you on the ride, I knew it wouldn't take long for someone to take that bait .If you'd rather ride the Red Mountain 350 instead of the

Wildwood 400, no problem, It's a much more dirt oriented ride. I'll be posting more info on that ride soon. Anyway email me your info, Name, Address, Phone, Etc
.
bob@ironmandualsport.com Below is just a litle of what you might find on this years rides. Look forward to hearing from you Kali Trailrider and Thanks Again, Bob

Now that could get interesting...

Rockgarden Bob 12-07-2012 11:38 AM

Scorpian, don't know much about mendo. But I do several rides that stage close to Reno. Particularly the Boomtown Rally, Setpember 28th and 29th. It has what I

can best describe as " Treacherous " single track for the "A" loop. Hope to see you there!
