2012 Touratech USA/ RawHyde Adventures Ride

Pack your gear, gas up your motorcycle and join Touratech USA and RawHyde Adventures for the third Annual Pacific Northwest Adventure Rally June 21-24 just north of Leavenworth, Wash.

Spend a weekend of great camaraderie, gourmet food, and scenic camping in the heart of the Cascade Mountain Range, as you ride on some of the best adventure roads the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

An amazing experience, the 2012 Touratech Pacific NW Adventure Rally is scheduled at the optimum time for great road conditions with the recently melted snow.

Held near the beautiful Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth, Wash., the rally will be packed with the best pavement and off-road riding in Washington’s beautiful Wenatchee and Mt. Baker National Forests. Attendees will camp under the northern lights on 120 acres of private property on the southern flanks of the Entiat Mountains in the National Forest.

There will be rides for all different skill levels, as well as supplied GPS routes for navigation. You can choose between a day in the dirt and a day on the streets, or any combination that works for you. Ride to the top of Sugarloaf peak (5814 ft), or down Swakane Canyon to the Columbia River, visit a brewpub in Leavenworth or conquer the rocky Colockum Pass / Ellensburg loop returning on beautiful Highway 97. Spectacular scenery and loads of fun are guaranteed.

Adventure and dual-sport motorcycles of all makes and models are welcome. If you’re new to off-road riding, RawHyde’s instructors will be hosting morning riding clinics before the day’s rides.

Tickets are $325 per person for standard admission, and $1,395 with RawHyde Intro Training.

Click here to register for the rally, or call the RawHyde Adventures at 661-993-9942.

What Is Included in the price: 8 great meals (dinner on Thursday through breakfast Sunday), beverages, camp site, a gift bag including souvenir shirt, GPS tracks, adventure rider clinics, 2 full days of riding from mild to wild in the beautiful Cascade Mountains, and the opportunity to hang out with other adventure riders.
