Did you get stuff from them for the gas gas?

No, but have heard good things from the GasGas guys. They say the cages are the best out there and you will never bend a radiator.

I have ridden with Pat and I can tell you she knows how to ride a bike. This will be a very cool opportunity to learn some stuff and network.
Sounds awesome! I'll check out the other thread and participate!! Thanks for posting here Ben--I would have missed it otherwise.


Sent from my device upon which I can access nearly all knowledge in the world, yet which I actually use to look at pictures of motorbikes and cute dogs.

I will be sending the registration list to Rocky Mountain ATV this week so we can participate in their Race Gas Program. They give every person registered a $10 gift certificate to use online.

So if you are planning on coming, get registered in the next day or two so you can get the free gift card and save some money

***Remember, we have the free shuttle running into town on Friday for specials at Deerhammer Distillery, and live music and the BBQ on Saturday Night!!

HUGE thanks to Dubinky!!!!!

$10 pledge per rider to COHVCO is appreciated!!!!


As the new President and Chairman of the Board of COHVCO (Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition), we need all the support we can get to keep our trails open.

I will do my best to attend the event on Friday or Saturday evening to represent COHVCO.

John thanks for the support and what you are doing at COHVCO, especially as the new president, congrats BTW! We would love to have you down for the BBQ!


I just want to be upfront with people and 100% honest. I have no problems donating proceeds to COHVCO and plan on doing just that. However as I stated on the registration page, I have to cover the expenses for Westfest first before we donate, and unfortunately that has not happened yet. I thought we would have a lot more people registered than we have so far......Just a lot going on during Colorado Summers

Rest assured as soon as the expenses for Westfest are covered money will go to COHVCO.

This event is not about making a profit, but about doing what many before me have done and making a fun weekend for ADV members to get together and be able to do it affordably. I know money is tight for folks and we tried to make this as cheap as possible so people can enjoy it.

We have worked really hard to bring in some cool stuff for the weekend and I hope people have a blast

Ben,

I think everyone understands that you have built a "dirt cheap" event. $45 is absurd...... Most events like this are upwards of $250 a rider.

I hope that everyone understand the hundreds of hours that Ben has put into the planning, work and logistics.

Additionally, I hope that everyone understands that "free federal land access" ......isn't free. Between the TPA and COHVCO and others.....upwards of $100,000 have been spent (this year) on legal fees to keep our trails open.

Guys on the front range that ride private tracks, pay $10-$20 a day for a couple of hours of riding.....yet they do not understand the need to invest in the trails that COHVCO works to keep open.

I will be at the event to answer questions relating to these issues. We all ride the Collegiate's and the Taylor Park area, thinking it is free....without understanding the heavy lifting it takes to make these trails available to all of us.

Thank you all for your passionate interest in the sport that you love and thank you for considering......"GIVING BACK"!

I just want to chime in that if any riders are holding out because of the well publicized fires around Colorado - they are not in areas close to the WF site. We have also been getting a lot of rain lately so that is helping supress the fires that are or were still burning. This is a great area to ride and I am really looking forward to this event.

I sure appreciate all you are doing Ben. Can't imagine the time you've spent. Part of my thanks will be an ear to ear grin at Taylor Park!

BTW....just signed up Michael (my 21 YO son). He's official. Arriving Wedn for a little Gunnison Spur action on Thurs (AKA Doctor Park). Anybody else interested? Not a noob trail, but not a real hard one either. Just plain ol fun....with a few climbs and a likely deep water crossing....that you can avoid if you bail out early.

Hi Y'all. I drove over Cottonwood pass last night(this morning) around 0100 the temp on the jeep showed a chilly 41 degrees. So you Dixie folks bring some warm gear :)
It has snowed measureable amounts every month of the year here in Colorado!
Ride safe
