    Everyone needs to go to this event at least once. You will NEVER see so many Rednecks and Bubbas from all over the country in one place at one time ever again. It is Freek'n HUGE.

    If only a giant asteroid could impact the earth at this precise location,
    during the event.

    The average IQ of the US would increase by 30 points in milliseconds.

    fucking tool! how much time have you spent out at the event? how many of the people have you met and spent time with? some of the most talented fabricators in the US are on the lakebed this week.
    You really think that the guys who can afford to build, race, maintain a 150K plus race car are not bright people?

    ignorant fuck!

    Very few Flat Biller "Bros" at KOH. "Good 'Ole Boys" abound. Thousands of Yeeps following each other around in conga lines from canyon to canyon at a blazing 10mph. Lots of garage built "crawlers" built by spectators. I think Burning Man is a pretty good comparison.

    The comment about the comet is pretty uncalled for. I can't go this year, but I've been for the last 2 years. Last year I went with my son who at the time was a fabricator for Gen-Right, one of the main sponsors. It is a VERY entertaining event on a number of levels.

    As far as 150k race cars and brilliance, the jury is still out on that one.:lol3

    KOH is pretty awesome. The Ultra 4 cars are amazingly over the top. I didn't meet a single unhappy person the whole time I was there.

    As much as the F1 thread and a lot of the Dakar threads do. Racing is pretty adventurous don't you think?

    Is that I've thought/wished ADV riding was/is a motorcycle forum!?
    There are plethora of sites devoted to 4wheels - not that there is anything
    Wrong with that...

    Perhaps you missed the entire King of the Motos tread??? If so then you missed that King of the Hammers is the birthplace of the King of the Motos. With both being run out of the same "Hammer Town" by the same org. back to back, in my not so humble opinion, I would say that there is a connection.

    Don't forget you are very welcome to not read threads that you feel may not match your tastes or interests.

    FYI - YA' ALL:
    "The toughest race in the country." The race was called King of the Moto's, and was a 160 mile extreme race through the desert of Lucerne Valley, Ca. I have been looking forward to this race for the last couple months and I've been spending a lot of time training with Destry Abbott who got third at last year's King of the Moto's. I didn't get a great start because it was dead engine and my bike didn't fire on the first kick. I knew it was going to be a long race so I didn't sweat it. I took off in about 15th and by the time I got to the first gas stop I was in 5th. I was able to get around Jacob Argubright soon after that for 4th. I was able to make my way into 3rd by about mile 115, and hold that all the way to the finish. This was definitely the toughest race I have ever done and it only made me want to do more Extreme Enduro type races. Cody Webb took the win and extreme enduro specialist Graham Jarvis got second. On a side note it was cool to see a bunch of my local Arizona buddies in the top ten. Destry Abbott in 4th, Bryan Roper in 5th, Eric Bailey in 6th, and Max Gerston in 10th. - TAYLOR ROBERT #33

    Congrats on the finish man! I was there doing some filming/photos for a website out of NC. Watching this race gave me a new respect for extreme enduro. Some of the climbs y'all had to do were insane.
