"Adventure Rally" Anyone? - 09 ~ 12 AUG 2007, Menlo, WA

In addition to other motorcycle/sidecar-related activities I'm involved in, I'm one of the organizers for the Pacific Northwest GS Rally. This is a "GS" (not specific to the BMW breed, but open to any street legal dual-purpose/enduro/off-road capable bike or hack with an engine displacement of greater than 649ccs). By popular request, this year's PNWGS Rally has been extended to 4 days. We're super excited to have champion off-roader Jimmy Lewis with us this year. Jimmy will be offering paid-for enduro clinics, and has confirmed that he'd welcome sidecars to the classes.

If you're interested in attending (if nothing else, its an all-meals included, free presentations, and amazing door prizes, four-day campout in WA State!), details are on our website at:

And, if you're interested in learning a few tricks from Jimmy Lewis on two or three-wheels, you may also sign-up for his clinics, though we are limiting the clinics to 40 rider/pilots total over two full-day classes, so we expect these to sell out quickly!

Some pics of last year's Rally may be seen at (and there's at least one hack in there, yours truly, hauling ice for the masses):

Ural Motorcycles will also have their demo trailer there, and will have a number of rigs available for test rides (maybe even their cross-bike hack).

Sounds like fun. I hope to make it. Right now all I have is one or our Platform sidecars on a KLR with one of our leading link front ends but who knows what I will own by then.
