    Honestly, had I of seen this earlier I'd put together something to get out there. Unfortunately it's just not feasible this year. I realize that this is much closer than traveling to a foreign country, but it's just where life is at right now.

    I'll be watching the live feed though that's for sure.

    If your worried about the distance go over to pirate4x4 and post up. There are a bunch if Crawler guys coming from all over who might have room to transport a bike and I'm sure would like a little help with fuel.

    Hey man, totally off topic, but I'm riding buddies with your Cousin Andrew out in CO.

    I'm in the same boat :cry

    I'd love to do this race but just don't have the time/money this year to drive out there... excuses excuses I know. I hope the event sticks around for 2014 and I'm healthy when it comes about, I'll make time.

    The Bivouac will be a reality and open to any riders who ride in to Hammertown and need a place to camp! Dave Cole loved the idea and will have a tent in the MOTO area for this.

    There will be good spectator maps this year and as long as you can handle a little sand, there won't be any issues riding an ADV bike to some really good spots.

    Hope to see a lot of ADV guys out there. And if you want to help, let me know as we are putting work teams together now.

    Jimmy,

    Who among the euros is coming to the event? I assume Graham Jarvis will be there, I wonder who else.

    We are just 2 weeks away from the start of the King of the Motos. If anyone is in need of a Voyager GPS unit for the event, give us a call. We can get you setup before the event.

    We will have a team down in Johnson Valley to answer any questions, training and trouble shooting.

    There will be a tent set up (in the area that was the MOTO rider's tech inspection) for the rider's who are riding in. You have to pay the regular Hammertown entrance fee but you can camp here with other hard core riders who don't need a big stinking motorhome like I do. I will try to make it as much like a Dakar Bivouac as possible!?!

    I'm sure this spot will turn into an ADV hangout like no other.

    Remember King Of The Hammers/MOTOS is a Burning Man for the gear head. You have never seen anything like this before.

    Hope to see a lot of you out there.

    I know I am part of the "evil establishment" that is trying to suck up Johnson Valley but I live within 45 minutes of this race on base so if anyone is coming from out of town and forgot something or need something mailed let me know and you can have it sent here. I hope to be able to ride out the morning of the KOM and watch some of the race before my Ravens play that day.

    Semper Fi!

    Save the Hammers!

    If you ever have any aspirations of spectating or competing in KOM you need to sign this petition. Basically the Marines want to expand the 29 Palms base to include JV and thus shutting it down for OHV use. Even if you never plan on going to JV sign the petition, it'll take five minutes of your life tops and all you need to provide is an email addy and your zip code.
