Kings of the West: Riding and Camping Event
Here was my basic plan that I came up with on Dec 19th, 2009 while imbibing some pre-holiday cheer. Also known as what I do every day:
Get a bunch of crazy FF"S together and have our own mini Dakar-style rally right here in the U.S.
The general idea was to start "somewhere in California, sometime in late 2010" and ride to somewhere else and cover 1500 miles in four days.
This was not supposed to be your typical dual sport rally with no particular time to be in any particular place. This was afterall, a Riding And Camping Event, a modern day dirt version of Cannonball Run.
It took no time at all to get people interested. We allowed 35 people to sign up and had a waiting list of over 10 at one point. In the end, we had 25 starters on Sept 29th 2010.
For the full story from beginning to end, you can go here:
I and the riders will post up some images, stories and videos here. One thing that no one ON THIS EPIC ride will dispute: THIS WAS THE GREATEST AND LONGEST NON-RACE TO EVER NOT TAKE PLACE IN THE U.S.
Sept 29th, Day 1 Start somehwere in the mountians above Mojave, CA
Sept 30th, Day 2 about three miles off the start somwhere in Nevada.
After a full day of rest. Here's some great Day 3 C-1 video taken somewhere in Utah.
