Kings of the West 1500!
2010

Riding And Camping Event

The Kings of the West (KotW) Riding And Camping Event is for those motorcycle adventurers who've always wanted to participate in a Paris To Dakar Rally-like event here in the United States. The KotW is a five day off-road event, covering between 240 and 330 miles of the Western United States daily for four days of riding with rest/relaxation and party on the third day. It covers some of the most unforgiving, technical and high speed terrain in the Western states. 100% of the KotW course is ridden on approved riding and driving land designated as off-road use areas by the BLM and other state and local authorities. Transit areas are paved sections of the course utilized only for the purpose of retrieving fuel and all rules of the road are to be followed.

The KotW is conceived for like-minded individuals who like to cover many miles of dirt riding in a single day, day after day, relying only on one's own ability to prepare for the inevitable and survive the unforseen. This event also requires that the riders are very familiar with GPS navigation and sourcing their own gasoline along the routes using the various "transits" along the way. This is not an event for lolly-gaggers, slackers, noobs or those wanting to stop and smell the roses.

Being that the primary goal of this event is to pit rider overall navigational skills against rider, not team against team and therefore dollars against dollars, no individual chase teams or rider sponsors are allowed, leaving each rider to wrench one's own bike, change one's own tires and fill one's own gas tank at gas stations along the way. This is not a race!

All rider support comes from volunteers who are friends, family, or off-road devotees who put up their own time and vehicles to help this event occur. Although all support personnel are volunteers, all of their expenses, including gasoline, hotels, food, and race schwag is covered by rider entry donations and dollars from the sell of schwag in the "buy stuff" section of the website www.kingsofthewestrally.com. So be sure to stop in there and buy something. All funds received go to supporting this event and will be exhausted on expenses.

In order to keep the KotW course and date confidential, only approved riders will be allowed to ride this event, and only they will have access to the dates and course information through the password protected forum accessed via www.kingsofthewestrally.com. The 2010 roster is currently full and in order to be allowed on the waiting list, you must contact the KotW organizers through thewebsite, or at
kingsofthewestrally@gmail.com
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___________


Mandatory donation to ride: On a need to know basis.

What this gets you:
  • Entry
  • Route notes and GPS coordinates/routes for checkpoints
  • Space to have your personal items hauled on support vehicles (Tires, Clothing, Spare parts, etc)
  • Fuel for the support vehicles (Not the motorcycles)
  • SPOT tracking using mobile satellite internet assisted laptops monitored until each rider has finished.
  • Lodging in Brianhead, Utah
  • Racing Jersey or hooded sweatshirt.
  • Your entry fee also covers the cost of a racing jersey or hooded sweatshirt for each person on the support team.
  • Stickers
  • Dinner and drinks each night
  • Breakfast each morning
  • Midway party in Brianhead, Utah with BBQ and open bar.
  • Any and all support required for breakdowns or injury.
  • Yet to be determined, some sort of trophies or awards. This is last on the list, because I think it’s the least important.
Rules:
  • The first rule of K.O.T.W. is don’t talk about K.O.T.W. to anyone that you wouldn’t trust with your life.
  • Second rule of K.O.T.W. is don’t talk about K.O.T.W.
  • All motorcycles must be legally street licensed.
  • All Riders must ride the whole event.
  • All riders must carry an operable SPOT locator and be subscribed to the “tracking” service.
  • All riders must carry a cell phone.
  • Proper riding apparel must be worn throughout the event. No jeans and work boots!
  • All riders must carry liability insurance during the event.
  • All riders, if married or have children, must carry minimum of $250,000 in life insurance during the event.
  • Each rider must carry all of their own fuel, purchase it from a gas station along the “transit” sections of the route, or beg, borrow or steel along the route.
(A” transit” is a portion of the course which for one reason or another, or by design utilizes a highway, road or some other pavement coated surface. All posted speeds “should” be followed, but that’s up to you……..)
  • No personal support or chase vehicles. This will be unfair to those who do not have that ability. Let’s keep it FUN, level, fair and most of all, affordable for everyone.
  • No engine swaps.
  • Each rider must carry enough food and water to sustain themselves for at least 48 hours.
  • Each checkpoint must be gone through and each rider must receive a “mark” to receive the points for that leg of the event.
  • When coming upon any rider who is injured or broken down, every rider is required to stop and render aid unless dismissed by the other rider. Each successive rider who comes upon this incident will be required to stop and take the position of the first rider who stopped. The first aid-rendering rider is then free to depart if he chooses. Once the rider has said he’s “OK”, or the repair is complete, he must give the last rider on scene a 5-minute headstart.
Suggestions:
    • Get your leg muscles in shape.
    • Get your drinking muscles in shape
    • Not mandatory, but you should use a GPS on this ride. The route notes will get you there, but you will have to stop and read them intermittently.
    • Take one set of spare tires
    • Take no less than 4 front and rear tubes, plus a repair kit.
MORE TO COME.....................................
