    The archery season is pretty low key around here. Never has been any closures due to hunting seasons. 2nd season rifle is when you don't want to be in the woods around here. Lots of crazies with alcohol to go with the guns!!

    This is a low key hunting season. I've never seen any roads closed. Good plan time-wise to explore the state prior to the rally as those 1st 2 weeks in Sept. are just awesome in Colo :clap

    Time is running out to book your camp site close to the Tech Area. (campsites 112-112A - overflow to 115-116)
    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20397519&postcount=145

    At this time they have saved the space for us to keep all the motorcycles together, in hopes that the entire Island would be booked by rally attendees. We want to make sure no small children are scared off by us beastly bikers..... :lol3

    We have about a month left, before they will open the rest of the island up to campers. They have about 20 spots reserved so far with mixed tent and cabin users. If you would like a cabin, there are some riders willing to share. Contact the campground or post your request up here to find someone willing to split a cabin or site.

    If you are interested in camping near the Tech Area, please contact Amber asap. http://www.steamboatcampground.com/maps.html

    We've got some great people in the industry willing to help out with this Mini Rally and answer your bike touring/setup related questions. This is OPEN to ALL riders. If you are new to moto camping/ just picked up a bike this season/ or have been camping for years, I have a good feeling that this event will be worth coming to. I'll have more info in May as I work though the growing details. (We are moving our home and shop now, so I've had to set this on the back burner for a little bit.)

    This will be a fun time for all those that love 2 wheels! :freaky

    Bump. Exactly 180 days until I hit the road for the rally, and the KTM is just about ready to go. :rofl

    Anyone trailering bikes back (towards the SoCal area) from the rally and have room for another bike?

    I just secured my cabin reservation. I'm planning to ride in/camp for a number of days and then spend a couple of days enjoying the cabin, fishing, and slounging around town before the rally and possibly some more riding/camping on the return trip home. I'm looking forward to this. :D

    Just a quick update: 3-23-13 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20397519&postcount=145

    Spring is almost here in WI and I'm super busy getting everything taken care around home. We may be moving in a few weeks so if you don't hear anything from me through April 15th - that's why. :eek1 It will be great once it's done though.

    The CJD CAMP TECH RALLY 2013 in Steamboat is still a "GO" and we are working on stuff behind the scenes to make this as useful to the MOTO camper as we can.

    We have some great local companies willing to help and I'll be updating the info as I put it all together. There should be great stuff for all. :clap

    In order to be a close part of this event, you will want to get your campsite booked now. We have even worked out a Promo price discount for this event for Tent spots. How can you go wrong??? :freaky

    My buddies in "The Springs" have been pestering me to get a proper bike and attend....and with a 950 ADV-S in the garage this week, I now have the right of passage. (Fly, buy and ride from Sierra Vista, AZ)

    We have several rides and events this year and I am also attending the C600, but I will do my best to attend.

    Congrats, Big John!!
    I'd sure love to attend this, ESPECIALLY the CJ Sessions...
    But, like last years Colorado plans, it's just not on the financial horizon....:cry

    So now I have to buy an orange bike?


    Maybe I can just offer a discount to the rally attendees at The Bakery....

    How's that work?

    There is nothing wrong with your GSA, buddy.

    The GS just ain't as nimble as a 950/990 would be....

    I have a bakery in Steamboat.


    It's called The Bakery.


    And I ride different bikes, but don't have any orange ones.


    Sometimes my GS gets lost and goes places it shouldn't probably go.
