Missed out completely

Got called for a job in Hawaii a couple of months ago and didn't know how long it would last. Expected to be back in time for WF but that didn't happen. Looking at the pic's, not sure taking the job was the best thing to do........ I mean, paying your bills is great, but look at those pic's........

Used to live just north of Salida and rode with the "high rocky riders" group there. Mostly atv's.
Looking forward to going back to my old stomping grounds next summer.

How is it decided which state WestFest is in? I see it has been in Montana before.

I think whoever steps up to be the host, gets to name the place and date.

Not yet,

Lets throw some dates and places out. My vote is to keep it simple (like just show up and be fairly self sufficient) and bring extra beer. Buena Vista works well, so did Lake George. but it does not have to be in Colorado either.

Simple and self sufficient are good

Something simple and self sufficient would be good. Both places in Colorado were nice. There are some spots in Wyoming that might be a lot of fun but would require a higher level of self sufficiency(sp). The southern end of the Big Horn Mountains or the area of Union Pass down past the Green River lakes and the southern end of the Winds. I know a few years ago the Rainbow people took over part of the Big Sandy area, southern end of the Winds and it seemed to work for the BLM and Forest Service. I'm not sure what type of organizational skills that bunch has. The late July early August are good times in Wyoming.

As most of you know, the RMAR Rendezvous use to be an annual ADVRider event, until the powers that be on ADVRider decided we needed to be moved to the 'Upcoming Thread'. We agreed, as RMAR has become an organization unto its own.

Anyway, I just wanted to point out to everyone that West Fest is an event that has always been near and dear to my heart. West Fest was the very first Adventure Riding Event I ever attended and I caught the bug, hook....line and sinker. I will always be thankful for those leaders who stepped up and ran off the West Fest events in the past.

Anyway, I suppose there is a possibility that West Fest might not materialize this year and I wanted you all to know that RMAR now has two events that might be of interest to you all.

We now have two Rendezvous Events in Colorado. http://www.rmariders.org/


Silverton Colorado
July 24-27 is our Rendezvous in Silverton, Colorado. We recently adjusted the dates of this event, moving a week earlier so as not to conflict with the Mile High Jeep Club event in Silverton the week after. Nearly everyone knows how awesome the riding is in the Silverton area.

Meeker Colorado
July 31 - Aug 3 is our Rendezvous in Meeker, Colorado. We are keeping our original RDV date, but moving to Meeker, CO to avoid the congestion issues around Silverton at this time. Meeker is a sleeping giant for Adventure riding. The Wagon Wheel trail system offers 250 miles of dirt that is outstanding for mid-sized and large adventure bikes. The BLM out to the west will give any single track rider all they want in 100's of thousands of acres.


The Meeker event is $55 and the Silverton event is $60, but if you want to attend both, it is $95. You get a TShirt, sticker and meal vouchers to use at restaurants and bars in town.

Both of these events are fundraisers for the Colorado Off-High Vehicle Coalition, which fights legally and legislatively to keep our trails open.

I'm honestly not trying to derail this West Fest thread, but if the event doesn't materialize, I just want you all to know that there are dual/sport and adventure event options for you in Colorado and we would love for you to be our welcomed guest.

If you don't know about RMAR, we are a non-profit, American Motorcycle Association Charter, based out of Colorado Springs, CO. We run off rides as fund-raisers for the likes of COHVCO, the TPA and various trail clubs across the state of Colorado. Our QSR ride this year is in Utah and will fund Ride with Respect out of Moab. We are 100% volunteer and we believe we should be giving back.....because we highly value the trails and dirt roads we get to experience.

Hit me with any questions.....PM please.

I'll probably be at both RMAR events, and WestFest, too, if that happens.

Appreciate it Marty.


Both of these communities need our support and there is great riding in both geographies.

Just a thought, why not have a Westfest that's actually in the West??
1200+ miles from the west coast is not the West! The Midwest maybe. From my, West Coast perspective, it's the Mid East.
Would you have the Eastern rally in Kansas City, Kansas? It's about 1200 miles from the East coast.

Just a thought
