Moab RALLY Madness, Moab, Utah, April 6 - 14, 2018 Next Spring, April 6th to April 14th, 2018, we are going to be having a gathering of Honda RALLY riders in Moab, Utah. (reality) ANYONE can attend, any bikes, any brands, blah blah blah. We are planning this almost 10 months in advance, so that riders from all over North America and beyond can plan, make arrangements, and attend this FUN riding event. It would not be inconceivable to have riders from as far away as New York, Florida, California, British Columbia, etc attend this riding event. While we are focusing on riders of the new 2017 Honda CRF250-RALLY, we are very welcoming of ALL riders of ALL makes & models. The premise of this gathering is to get as many riders with the new 2017 Honda CRF250-RALLY riders as we can to SEE - FEEL - RIDE - and Enjoy all the wonders that Moab, Utah has to offer. The location for riders that have an RV, a Trailer, a Camper, or even a Tent, and you want facilities to go along with that rig, is that we will be meeting at the Archview RV Campgrounds, which is 9 miles north of Moab, Utah, on the East side of Hwy 191. If anyone wants to DRY camp, there is very good BLM land easily accessible within 2 miles of the Archview RV Campgrounds, just off Willow Springs Rd, also on the East side of Hwy 191, just north of the Archview RV Campgrounds location. The Archview RV Campgrounds also have different CABINS for rent, from basic Cabins, to Deluxe Cabins, to Luxury Cabins. They have a gas station on site, and a mini-convenience store too. Excellent bathrooms, large, clean, and lots of hot water for showers. The adjoining BLM land is excellent for large groups to gather, set up a roaring bon-fire, and circle the wagons (RVs) The vast majority of all riding can be done directly from these camping/RV locations. It is easy to spend a week to 10 days riding all the trails outside of Moab, Utah, and never have to ht the same trails twice. THIS is the spot to discuss all things about this gathering. Let's fill these pages with questions and answers, suggestions and tips, so we can get as many RALLY riders (and their friends that have other bikes) to attend this fun event. This event is hosted by all of YOU that attend, for the benefit of all of YOU that attend. There is NO entry FEE at all. Each rider here will pay for their own expenses, such as food and lodging, gas and NP entry fees. That is up to the individual. This thread is simply here to facilitate the gathering of information, the organization of information, so that riders can show up and know they will be meeting other riders, and not be alone. We will arrange well in advance that anyone that chooses to stay at the Archview RV Campgrounds receives a discount on their rates, for the time frame we will be there, which is April 6th - April 14th, 2018. Coordinating with all the DRY campers that will be on the BLM land within 2 miles of the groups at the Archview RV Campground, we will have groups of riders going out on daily trail rides, and all the riders will need to voluntarily be honest about their riding skill level, as we will have 3 to 4 different skill level groups, riding different skill level trails each day. Anyone that is remotely familiar with the trails system surrounding Moab, Utah, knows that there are several dozen different trails, and each one has a different level of difficulty, from the extremely easy/peasy cow-trailing rides to the radically difficult extreme hard-core rides. This is the beginning of this organization for this event. Over the next several months we hope to be hearing from riders that can offer personal medical response while ON the trails, if that situation arises, as well as riders that may be willing to set up a evening BBQ or chow table. It will all come together. We have almost 10 months to hear from anyone interested in attending this FUN riding event. We do need to say, if you are not a daily rider, not interested in the trails, and just want to sit around camp and read, while others are out riding each day, this may not be the event for you. The scenery around Moab is beautiful, but we each have our own opinions as to what makes up something beautiful to look at. We expect that the vast majority of riders will actually be out there, riding the trails every day. But as we know, riding for several days can take its' toll, and there are times that a rider wants to take a day off, and rest their bones. Moab, the town, is 9 miles down the road, and has every service available that any of us could need. For those that want to bring family along, this WILL be a family friendly event. We welcome ALL members of the family, but ask that if you "just have" to bring a dog along, please abide by the rules of common sense and logic. Not all people are into dogs, and we ask that you respect that. There are several National Parks immediately within this area, including the Archlands National Park that we will be adjacent to, and can access via back trails. ASK your questions. We are here to help, be open and honest, and hope to see a LOT of riders attend this event.
