I've been to two of the rallye's and they were co-located with a hotel so the staff had a place to base out of. The others I have seen advertized but not attended were set up the same way. They haul in demo's in a big rig and there are vendors that also show up. They need a big parking area to accomadate all the biker riff-raff that show up too.

As usual Sean, you're on the cutting edge. Rally Car ................... def: a 4 wheeled vehicle that delivers alcoholic beverages to riders at a motorcycle rally.


I like it! Brilliant!





What you know about LT Environmental in Rifle?

Cptn Rick, you can have 1st dibs on the guest room!!!
Oh, I might be in for this. I wasn't interested in going to a 'hotel' rally but now this is becoming much more inticing. And if The Capt is coming, hell yes

the location is still being worked on.

up in hahns peak with these 2 places as a base is ideal imo
http://hahnspeakroadhouse.com/
http://www.hahnspeakinn.net/

tons of amazing riding (single track, jeep & FS roads plus amazing paved - WY70 - not far away), hotel & cabins there plus grass areas for camping, 2 local restaurants plus a gas station, supply & liquor store.
what else do you need? that's why it's one of the epic ridding areas in the state.
