RawHyde's Adventure Days Nov. 8th-11th

Jim Hyde sent out an email to his many newsletter followers so I figured, I'd post it here to ensure we reach anyone who isn't already a subscriber.



Hi Folks, Don’t forget that Adventure Days is coming the weekend of November 9th What is Adventure Days? Its partly a rally… partly an “Expo”… and it’s all about adventure on two wheels.
Nothing like Adventure Days has ever been attempted before and we’d really love your support of the event. There are two ways you can participate – You can join us for all three days as part of our Rally Package in which case you’ll get all the classes, all the rides, 8 meals, evening entertainment, and access to the “Dakar Bar” and a whole lot more (for only $249) or… you can come for a single day between the hours of 9 and 5 to visit the vendors and participate in a few classes or clinics for no charge.
Sign up here for the whole program: http://www.advlife.us/advdays/advdays-signup.pdf
If you are a local rider and would like to attend using a “Day Pass” you can pick one up at your local area BMW Dealership or you can get a pass electronically by going to the Adventure Days website and downloading the “day pass voucher” at the bottom of the home page.
Please note that once you’ve downloaded the day pass, you’ll need to confirm your attendance by RSVP. Directions for the RSVP are printed on the ticket. The RSVP will generate an auto response indicating we’ve gotten your request and we’ll send additional information to your email box as it becomes available.
** Note if you request a day pass electronically we need you to RSVP after


Please take a look at the class and clinic list below – every topic under the sun is being covered plus several travel presentations and more.
