2009 Texas Adventure Ride - April 2 - 5, 2009

The 3rd annual Texas Adventure Ride is being held April 2 - 5, 2009 in Junction, TX (the Texas Hill Country). The Texas Hill Country contains some of the finest paved and dual sport roads in all of Texas. This organized rally offers the dual sport adventure community an annual opportunity to explore those great roads.

Registration is now open. You can download the registration form here.

The cost of early registration is $50. All riders who early register will receive a 52 page, spiral bound, 2009 Ride Guide, a 2009 TAR commemorative t-shirt, and entry into the Saturday night banquet. Ride guides will be mailed to registered riders. T-shirts and banquet tickets will be given out at the event. (Note that the banquet is now included with early registration.)

Early registration ends March 19, 2009 so I have sufficient time to mail the ride guide to you and for you to receive it before the event.

On-site registration is $25 and will be done on Thursday evening, the first day of the event, and includes the banquet only. T-shirts and ride guides may be purchased separately, depending on availability. I will bring a few extra t-shirts and ride guides but make no guarantee that if you wait to register on-site that you will receive one.

TAR is the largest ds rally in Texas. Over 200 riders from all over the southern US (TX, LA, OK, AR, FL, GA, NM, KS, etc) attended last year, so make your reservations early.

More information about TAR can be found here.

I had a great time last year but this year I'm taking off in March in the Motorhome pulling the Ural Gear-Up and the XT 250 I had at Junction last year and touring the North West until late August. I'm starting on in Moab and going from there.

Thanks Richard. I looked at the web site but your reply added the elements I was looking for.

You're welcome. Hope you can make it to Junction. I'm certainly biased, but I think TAR is a really fun event. I know I always enjoy it.

I might very well try to make it. I hope my GSA will be suitable for this type of thing. But I'm new to this and I don't have my gear yet nor is my bike set up the way I want it. But I do need to get my feet wet and this looks like a good opportunity.

A GSA will be fine on all but one of the 15 routes.

Being a for-profit event, this should be posted in the Vendors Forum.

Really? I was going by this rule for this forum "If you make your living by hosting these events, please place it in the Vendor forum.". I do not even come close to making a living from hosting events, nor am I trying to. But if the mods think it should be moved, by all means please do so.

Yes, really, Richard...

Here's a secret, but please keep as such:
If somebody other than the person actually making the bucks off of the event had posted the info, and the person making those bucks didn't spam the thread that was started by that somebody too badly, that thread would probably ride free.

Kinda like somebody posting about the coolness of the Boeing Dreamliner, and then the CEO of Boeing who is trading under the table with his stock options to become a kazillionaire, can post in that thread, but the CEO should never start the thread.

Or like 'Ol Coot, the guy running Coot's Rock Shop near Bandera who wants to sell his quartz, uranium, and other stuff he's found...and traded for on eBay. He gets a neighbor, student, or paid hacker outta Austin to make the first post. Then he goes in with the pick...so to speak.

I have more examples, if wanted...

Yeah, Richard, as much as I would love to read some more of Lone Rider speak, I'd have say he's right although it would be better for him to notify someone who makes those decisions before posting it in public, but that's the way he works. So off this goes to vendors.

I realize that you can't make an income from doing this kind of thing once in awhile, but others who make far less than it takes to live, but collect $$ for stuff they make or organize have to do it, too.

Sounds like a great Weekend!

This is probably one that needs to be checked out! I also have the same concearn as J911brick; How suitable are big GS's and how agressive do tires need to be?? is it mostly fire roads or does it get into deep single track??
