I could make the 300 street legal, but don't really want to do all that work and pay taxes, for just one trip.

Y'all think I'll be much happier on a 300 cc then a 200 cc, in the mountains of Colorado?
KLX's do fine up in the mountains

Wow, looks like you were really hauling a load. Looks like yours is the S model. I think the S has a beefed up subframe for pillon passenger.

Mine is the R model. It's not rated for passenger. I would need to hire a metal fabricator to beef up the subframe.

depends on how much abuse the bike itself is subject to while loaded.



Pooooooooooor little KLX became pooooooor for a reason, but subframe held out way longer than the 3 cylinder liners did.

Thanks for the question, George.

Short answer - donations to RMAR are not tax deductable, not yet anyway.

Longer - We've only been incorporated as a non-profit for just over a year. We're working closely with COHVCO and TPA (and their lawyers) to determine whether the expense and hassle of 501c3 requirements are worth it. We would love to extend the tax benefits to you, but we have to balance that with how much we wouldn't be able to give back due to the extra costs. In due time, we hope to be able to offer tax deductable benefits against your donations.

Thanks for the explanation.

From:

http://cohvco.org/content.aspx?page_...dule_id=111686

"COHVCO is currently a 501(c)4 Corporation. Those donations are NOT tax-deductable."

IRS

http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-P...-Organizations

Looks like a path strewn with hurdles, considering that the Cincinnati office of the IRS targets Organizations applying for 501(c) status.

Itinerary for the 2013 RMAR Rendezvous

I"m having a hard time finding any itinerary for the 2013 RMAR Rendezvous Rally. This is my first rally so I dont really know the flow of things.
I guess one should plan to arrive on Wednesday July 23 expecting to do rally rides on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and then leave anytime on Sunday?
I will be riding the Trans-America Trail (TAT) just days ahead of the RMAR rally and will try to plan on being in Silverton on Wednesday.
I'm guessing that in the mornings and/or afternoons one would just try to hook up with other riders and hit a trail or is it a bit more structured as in sign up sheets for different trials for a curtain amount of riders ect.

Basicly just show up, suit up, bullshit with people and you'll find the ride you wanna go on. If not theres always just taking off solo like, chances are you'll meet up with a group out on the road/trails etc... rinse and repeat for a few days...

Of course there's always Johns "big bike easy ride"
