Hawk, honest question here. Why wasn't this a big deal last year, when it was the same name at the same place? What has really changed in anything this year that brings such heat?

No tattle tale'ing needed. I have thousands of riders that will defend the positive and professional work of RMAR.

Hope you can come to Colorado one day, Hawk, and enjoy the trails we all.....have fought and donated to keep open.

Honor those who came before us...

IMHO, we should Honor those who lead and came before us, and use them as an example to be better men, and better riders and supporters of the sport.

I started my riding in the late 60's, and had the pleasure of knowing many of the original Checkers members. They were role models, and as many have now passed I remember them with respect.

Off-roaders are a unique breed of people, who go out of their way to help others, at all times, no matter what.

I can say this for certain, Big John and the leaders of RMAR are an OUTSTANDING group of people who continue the legacy ....I applaud them for their efforts.

Lets all Honor those we remember, by enjoying good company and the riding that brings us all together.

The "popular" trails are in the worst shape I've seen them in the 3 years I've been coming out here. More loose rock and spinning wheels in the switchbacks. Took my Jeep down some that I did on a KLR 3 years ago and wouldn't want to do them again on 2 wheels. Erosion or atvs or both?

Still love the place...

She is a most excellent lady, funny, intelligent, and I will feed her, shelter her, and send her safely on her way.

.........
I'll be in CO next week John, care to join me for a beer?

I'll reiterate I was born and raised in CO and I appreciate the effort you guys put into keeping the trails open. I just don't think you do it in an above board method... Now that is my opinion and my opinion only. Requiring minimum "donations" is a bit extreme in my opinion (and it would seems others also) but it is their choice and the rally organizers also.

The use of "Rendezvous" was not put into place until after Rick was killed, please offer me evidence of my ignorance in this and I'll never mention it again. Failing that, I will continue to protest the usage.

Again, I hope everyone at the rally has a wonderful time and many "required donations" are raised so trails can be saved for the "thousands" to enjoy.

Be safe and enjoy being smug and pious
