This year the Arizona Trail Riders "Howlin at the Moon" rally will be held in Payson, Arizona at the Payson Elks Lodge located at 1206 N. Beeline Highway, Southwest corner of Hwy 87 and Airport Road. We have changed things up this year for our Dual Sport participants with new A and B routes on Saturday that start out going South through the high deserts of the scenic Tonto Basin before climbing back up into the pine forests of the Matazal Mountains on the way to Young. We have also changed things up for our Adventure participants by offering two riding options. (1) Ride the Dual Sport C routes which take you from Payson to Young for lunch and back to Payson for the banquet Saturday night. (2) A point-to-point (GPS Only) ride leaving from Payson Saturday morning, going to Winslow for lunch, then onto Young for banquet and overnight , returning to Payson on Sunday. Thank You to the Arizona Adventure Riders Group for helping us with the Adventure routes this year. Also new this year is the American Motorcyclist Association membership requirement. The AMA is now requiring membership for all National Dual Sport and Adventure events and you must bring proof of current AMA membership when you check-in at the event. If you are not an AMA member there is a 1 Event pass available for $20.00. The AMA is a great organization which the Arizona Trail Riders support and we hope this requirement does not dissuade your participation.
