2018 Touratech Rally West, June 21-24, Plain, WA


Any Strommers planning to attend? Not inexpensive, but they are anticipating selling out prior to event date. I'll be attending this, tent camping off a bike for my first time. Spent a small fortune on camping gear, justifying to the wife with massive savings from typical annual hotel charges: "This gear will pay for itself by the end of the season, by next season, we'll actually be making money!"

I'll be riding my now overloaded R1200GSA, along with a buddy on his 1090R. He's planning on taking some on-site ADV skillz training (extra fee) while I'll be enjoying the easier planned paved/gravel road ride, along with several tech sessions (field tire change, braking, suspension, border crossing, first aid, etc.) and multiple onsite vendors. KTM and Honda factory demo rides available!

Not a huge fan of group rides, so I may even get lost on my own one of the days. Plenty of social time with nightly camp fires, whisky and dancing girls. Well, two outta three ain't all bad...

I'll be sure to say hi to any Strommers stumbling about!

Current: '17 R1200GS Adventure, '16 DR650SE, '15 DR200S
Past: '14 DL1000A ADV, '07 DL1000, '01 K1200LTC, '89 ZX10, '81 KZ650, '75 DT400B

Dang! Same weekend as the Superbike races at Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA which we're attending. Maybe next year. I do appreciate your bringing this up, however. Probably a lot of us wouldn't have known it was going on if you hadn't.

I'd go if I was retired. Or maybe we will go out of business in a few weeks.
