2015 RMAR Moab Rendezvous, April 16-19

2015 RMAR Moab Rendezvous, April 16-19

Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders

Registration: www.rmariders.org

To say THANK YOU to ADVRider & Baldy.
We are offering 10% off, Valid till 31 Oct 2014.
Code: ADV10pct709





The goal is to raise $10,000 minimum for Ride with Respect in Moab, UT. They are the ones that fight for your right to ride in Moab, UT and maintain the trails.


Come out and join us for the first organized Moab, UT Dual Sport event to take place. Rider's are limited to 100. You are welcome to bring whatever bike you want, from a GS1200 to your small 250cc 2-stroke. We do highly recommend plates as most rides will leave right from the campground but if you don't mind hauling to the trail-head then bring it out. Our guided rides will encompass all skill levels so don't worry if you are a new rider as you are among friends.

Although one would think Moab, UT as being the mecca for off-road use that pulling off an organized event would be easy especially given that just the week before there will be thousands of Jeeps out there using the trails. However that is not the case with motorcycles. We had to seek approval from FIVE Government agencies to hold this fundraiser for 'Ride with Respect' (RwR). Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 for RwR. We need to show Moab that riders do care about their trails and will give back. Sadly too many people come to Moab, use the trails and NEVER step up and give to RwR, maybe they don't know, maybe they don't care; this is something that needs to change. Trail maintenance is not FREE, fighting to keep a trail open is not FREE this all take money.

Even if you can not come we ask all riders to step up and donate something as it takes the riding community to keep these trail's around for future generations to enjoy.

Let's show 'Ride with Respect' we care. $100 will be tax deductible from RwR.

Enjoy sitting around the fire:




Enjoy GREAT views:














All kinds of riding terrain for all SKILL levels:














There are always people out there that will help you out:






Of course 5MoH is not all that far away ;-)

IN!

I will be there for sure. I will also happily register WITHOUT using the discount code in support of Ride with Respect.

I will most likely take the RV, so...........make my own site registration, or????? No worries either way!

Brian, I'll check with the campground tomorrow to see about RVs and let you know what they have (back here, for everyone's benefit).

Gang, I am happy to ramrod the food this year.

Hot coffee and Wonderful Breakfasts on Friday and Saturday morning, as well as the Ribeye Steak Dinner on Friday night.

Remember to bring a couple of important items....

1. Metal Fork and Knife. Of course we will have some plastic ones for the absent-minded, but a good fork and knife will make the Steak Dinner much better.

2. Camp Chair. While there might be some limited seating and tables, you really want to have your own chair, if for no other reason to have a nice seating around the camp fire.


Moab will initiate new dinner preparation from the past RMAR events. In the past we had four cooks surrounding the BBQ Trailer, doing their best to keep the steaks from burning, yet cooked enough....and keeping everyone happy. This year we will show up with three large grills: 2 feet by 6 feet....that are each rated to cook about 100 burger patties.

We will have three of them!!! They will be spread out, where you can gather around them.

Here's how it will work.....You will select your own steak from the large stash. You will season your steak how you want it and then you will throw it on the grill and cook it yourself. It is pretty easy for 15-20 folks to be cooking on a grill at the same time. We will have multiple pairs of tongs for each grill.

If you don't know how to grill a steak, there will always be a bunch of testosterone infested, BBQ experts who won't waste a second telling you how it should be done.

My group will prepare the "sides".....all you have to do is cook your steak.




By the way, if you are a Rabbit......rather than a carnivore, one of the sides for the steak dinner is a salad. You can load up on veggies and forego the beef. If you are "in" to grilled tofu.....bring your own and you can use the grill.

A HUGE thank you to Big John and crew for doing the steaks.

Heck I paid $$$$$ once in the ski town of Steamboat to cook my own steak.

THANK YOU

All the guys cooked their own steaks at the Big Dog Ride this year in Buena Vista.

It is always fun to hang around the grill, cook a steak and shoot the bull and tell lies about your riding!

Don't let your eyes fool you into thinking that the grill isn't all that big. The cook in the blue TShirt is 6'8" and 320lbs.
