2014 V-Strom Gathering West

Hello all,

The 2014 western US V-Strom Rally will be held July 18, 19, and 20th this year in Silverton Colorado. Silverton is very bike friendly and very used to hosting gatherings like ours. The whole town in only about a mile long. The population swells from about 450 to a 900 people in the summer. All town amenities are within walking distance of each other.

Aside from the motorcycle friendly nature, Silverton was chosen due to it's location right smack in the middle of some of the best motorcycle roads in all of Colorado and the country. Good riding, both paved and forest road, is to be had in every direction out of town.

Here is the Motorcycle roads map of the area and link to the Colorado page of the motorcycle roads website http://www.motorcycleroads.com/Routes/Colorado_81.html



Sign up, ride planning, motel info, etc., can be found here http://vsari.com/index.php?board=100.0

I received and posted the discount information from the "Red Mountain Motel, Cabins & RV Park" folks. http://vsari.com/index.php?board=100.0

This is a busy time of year for Silverton. It truly is one of those events where it will be important to get your reservations made early.

Also, be sure to add your names to the list of people committing to attend. Lodging, Camping, and People Committed to Attending
