2016 Touratech Rally EAST, Huntingdon Pa

It was a great turnout for the 2nd annual Touratech Rally EAST in Huntingdon Pa.  Touratech is a huge international company that make parts for Adventure bikes. Their only shop in the US is in Seattle and when they told me they were hosting an eastern rally in central Pennsylvania about the time I would be passing through, I couldn’t miss it. The Touratech western rally outside Leavenworth Wa is in it’s 5th or 6th year and had 600-700 attendees this year, since this is only the 2nd year in the east, about 250-300 made it out.( up from last year)

It’s a big camp out with special guests and vendors plus great riding for everyone weather you are a novis that sticks to the pavement or the hard core single track rider. This year Jimmy and Heather Lewis from  the Jimmy Lewis off road riding school and GS Giant woman rider Kim Krause  were presenting and doing riding demos.

I also ran into a few Teneres out and about 😉

In camp one night a GS rider got a little too intoxicated and belligerent, after he passed out, his buddies did the only thing they could think of to get him back…. I think it worked! LOL

The majority of my time in camp was spent as a Mosko Moto nomad, It’s a program Pete Day and his team set up at the events they can’t personally make it to. A few loyal customers with Mosko Moto luggage gather at these types of events to show off the excellent luggage they make. It was a great time!

It was a great weekend, I was glad to meet up with old friends and make new ones.
