I liked the location of the last KTM rally in Bend. It was an outdoor setting. You could walk around the entire weekend in your motorcycle gear and boots and think nothing of it. In fact I would have been happy in a campsite after recouping in a resort bed for a night, but the campsites were too far removed from the event.
That Steamboat Grand Hotel looks HUGE. It looks like a great location to bring the family. But it's not exactly a place I want to lumber around in riding gear all weekend, clomping down long hallways in the morning while pissing off the sleeping non KTM participants.
I know the KTM organizers have a tough job and want to look forward to a nice relaxing resort.
I myself prefer something that straddles the line between rustic and resort.
I'm curious what the local riders think of this set up.
