Yamaha Super Tenere, DR650 SE, and a Hotrod Kawasaki KX450. They all have more power than I have talent! Lots of USFS campgrounds up here also. I have been promoting and sponsuring a lot of snowmobile events and am looking to get into the bike venues next summer. Check us out at If you a guys have any suggestions as what we could offer I am all ears. Thanks, Mark
Yes, it is a great area. We actually rode right through the area on the 2012 route, running some of the double track over to Vega Reservoir. I doubt it will be a part of the 2013 route, but will probably come back to it in 2014.

Anyway, I'm interested if there's room.

So here is the deal. The first of December, RMAR will send out invites to the Members that participated in the 2012 Ride. Once we receive those commitments back, then we will start to send out invites for 2013, probably the first of January. There will be slots, as we are growing the ride from one group of 15 riders to two groups, totaling 30 riders.

The first of January, I will ask anyone interested to PM me their email address. It is through you email that you will receive all the information.

Thanks for your interest.
