I’m planning to go to the Touratech Rally EAST  in Huntington Pennsylvania this year because I couldn’t make the Touratech Rally in Plain Wa a couple weeks ago. I’m seeing a few of the videos on YouTube and it looks like a great time even though the mountains aren’t has high 😉

It’s a lot more than the a Mototcycle rally as it’s also an “Overland” rally for the 4×4, Jeep and Landrover crowd. I think it’s the best of both worlds.

There is always training on site so if you don’t have any off-road experience on your Tenere, here is the place to learn. It’s also a great time to refresh and sharpen the skills you already may have.  The training ground is normally the site for the challenge competition which looks like a blast to watch with the slow race.

All throughout the weekend are seminars on a vast array of topics. Packing, tire changing, cooking on the road and first aid. I’m sure I’ll be sitting in on a few over the course of the weekend.

The event is $100 for the weekend and that includes camping, guided rides and meals. You’ll need to bring fuel. The training is normally extra. I am in contact with Touratech USA and will pass on any updates as I get them.

Please come out and join me for a great weekend. There were only about a dozen Teneres in Washington a couple weeks ago so let’s try for more!

It's all about going for a ride with friends on the Yamaha Super Tenere, on road or off in the Pacific Northwest
