7th Annual!  FB event page here and registration link here.

Description:

(Limit 80 riders) In the heat of summer, experience the cooler temps (6800' elevation) and epic big bike riding in the High Sierra. Gourmet catered meals (2 dinners, 2 breakfasts), professional photography, firewood, adult beverages, hot showers, bathrooms, nearby hot springs, general store. Vendor-sponsored raffle prizes! All to benefit Motorrad Angels(motorradangels.org), a charity that provides clean water filtration kits around the world.

Trails for all abilities from scenic pavement to easy, intermediate and expert dirt.

Highlight is riding to the 12,400' summit to see the White Mountain Research Station whose gate is open this one day per year.

Beat the traffic and be home Monday for Labor Day with your family.

New this year: T-shirts, Silipint cups & two breakfasts!

You are an adult paying for a good time at a campout and are free to explore the area on self-guided gps tracks on public roads and public trails at your own risk. XLADV, Motorrad Angels and Brown's Owens River Campground accept no liability for your safety. By signing up and paying for this event you are in acknowledgement of these terms and waive any right hold hold aforementioned parties liable.


Only registered riders can attend. No exceptions. Do NOT invite your friends to come free. Do NOT "rogue" the ride by camping nearby and shadowing us; it's in poor taste given this is a charity event and a lot of work goes into it.

Refund Policy: This year it's one month out, or by end of day, July 31st, 2018. Absolutely no refunds after that date. It's extremely hard to organize an event this size with countless last minute cancellations and then a scramble to add in last minute additions to fill the gaps. This is a volunteer deal and it benefits Motorrad Angels so consider that if you have to cancel within two weeks of the event.

$199 this year but I'm adding in tshirts, silipint cups and two breakfasts!

Sponsors (so far):

BMW MOA

I'd say you can do all the easy tracks two up and some of the intermediate depending on your ability.  We'd love to have you both!

That's a great question but one perhaps for your accountant.  The raffle tickets are most certainly tax deductible but the actual event I'm not sure since XLADV is not a 501 C 3 organization.

A couple of years ago my wife and I rode it two up. Yeah we did do some intermediate routes! Lots of Sand in some areas. I found out later myvrear Shock was shot when I got home... either than that if you are up for the Adventure it is definitely there! My wife is coming again this year, but driving in and kicking and taking pics!

I am headed to Sturgis end of July so I put 80/20 tires on for the 3,500 mile trip.  With these tire we will stick to the easy dirt roads :) Sounds like a good time and a good chance to meet other adv riders.

If we bring the wife i would pay the registration for her but would not want to take a spot of a rider.  Do you count passengers in total count?

Yeah sorry but I do.  The costs are for food, camp spot, firewood, raffle, etc...   Thanks

Sorry I think I was not clear on my post.  If I brought met wife I would pay for two riders because I understand that costs are per person.  I did not want to take a spot for her as a rider and prevent someone who wanted to come who had a motorcycle since this is really for us riders.

So I suppose a better question is are you limiting the number of people or the number of motorcycles?  Maybe I should not bring the wife but hard to get away on a long weekend like this. ;)

If this fills up maybe I could give up her spot for a rider?

@Tr182md I see now.  I appreciate your thoughtfulness but we have just 35 signed up now with room for 80.  Not sure we're going to hit 80; probably 65.  I'd say there's plenty of room and your wife is number 1 so definitely bring her.
