Regarding the Rendezvous moniker, they're right, the original Rendezvous we tried to fashion our event after is Jim Bridger's Rendezvous in southwest Wyoming.

That is the original. All others are in respect to Bridger.

Yes, it's sad when someone trolls...

It's a word...in fact I assumed they were making a joke that went over poorly *shrug*

No trolling here.

The Eastern Rendezvous is the epitome of what an ADV rally should be. "A loosely organized gathering of like minded riders". Not a full on corporate sponsored event with a political agenda.


The best thing any rider can do to keep trails open is to ride responsibly. It amazes me the rudeness of some off road riders towards other outdoor users (loud pipes, burn-outs, constant "goosing" of the throttle) does nothing to promote open trails.


Just sayin

That is an incorrect statement.

Whether you ride responsibly or not, there are groups out there, including National Forests, that are working to shutdown your riding area.

The best thing you can do to keep your trails open is to get involved and donate your time and money to organizations, such as COHVCO or NMOHVA, who are actively working with lawyers to fight anti-access organizations.

Doing nothing at all to help, and just riding is a sure sign of ignorance towards what is actually happening to our riding areas.

I strongly disagree. This is more than a party, it also brings awareness of the area to a broader public, so when the wilderness and hunting groups keep trying to close areas, people understand what they are fighting to protect, our right to also use these areas! And there is way more than just riding responsibly..carry a chainsaw a day or two volunteering to give back to your trails, join a trail group, stop and check on any hiker or mtn biker on the side of the trail to see if they need anything. Be the best fucking steward of our sport so your positive interactions may overshadow the jackass antics shown by others in our sport. You call it a political agenda, but I don't think anyone attending disagrees with the ideas they are working toward....I for one am looking forward to a bunch of riding, seeing old friends and making new, eating well and drinking beer!

I'll only add, don't you want the manufactures to get involved, they have deep pockets and can toss money to help keep trails open. Too bad they don't toss money at trails like REI, Camel Back and a whole host of OTHER organizations that oppose OHV use. To me its nice to see companies get involved with the sport, they should their livelihoods depend on it and its about time they take notice of that. If they don't and more and more trails close that means the sport will probably shrink in time which impacts a LOT of people in many ways.

This is a group of friends, with some new to be friends. People don't come back year after year for nothing.

If by Political you mean we were able to get Silverton to change their laws and open some streets to OHV use because they saw what an event like the Rendezvous could do for them...then I'm okay with being political. 12 guys getting together although it might be FUN, will not make a town change to embrace OHV's coming into town and thus having a voice toward the USFS in that they want more trails to attract more people into town. They saw the light, and realized that they need OHV's that just means mor emoney for the town, and for the local businesses.

So getting companies involved and getting town's involved is very important. If that is political then so be it.

Yeah it looks like fun


Oh and by the way ADV Rally, we are not really an ADV event and that implies we are somehow stuck to this forum. We are not, most people that are coming are not even members here. Although we are down from what we expected we are still looking at 200 riders. In fact as you can see we don't sport the ADV logo anymore, and RMAR stickers outsold ADV ones so we are not even bothering this year with ADV.

T minus 24 hours

XR Carb re-jeted, Beer purchased, Tequilla packed ..., rain gear added, fueled up, almost ready

Load trailer tonight, and departing at O-dark thirty. Should make it to Camp by 3:00 local time.

Looking forward to some awesome riding, seeing old friends, eating like kings,cold beverages, and more awesome riding !!

PS. My riding buddy took the tip of his middle finger off sunday while lubing his chain. Clutch hand , ouch .Finger rolled through the chain/sprocket and took it right off. He is a tough old SOB, but may need to do some easier rides less aggresive rides.
Anyone riding Thursday ? Dont really want to do 7 passes solo...

Ouch, yep never lube the chain while in gear although easier. My best friends father same deal, took a whole finger off when he was in High School from lubing a chain on a motorcycle. Very common accident.
