Riding off-road means that you have to do your part – it’s something that every responsible outdoorsman (or woman) accepts. Whether that’s donating to your favorite group or taking a shovel out along for the ride in order to keep trails happy and healthy, every little bit helps.But now, you can make your support for trails do just a bit more with an opportunity presented by the Blue Ribbon Coalition. How about donating for the chance to win a brand new BETA 300RR Race Edition.
To enter for your chance to win a BETA 300RR Race Edition, all you need to do is make a $10 donation to the Blue Ribbon Coalition. Two donations ($20) will get you a basic BRC membership, and three ($30) will allow you a premium individual membership. There is no limit to the amount of donations you can make towards the event, so enter as many times as you like, in $10 increments.The winner will be selected live at KLIM’s second-annual Cow Tag off-road ride, held in Idaho on June 25. And you don’t need to make a trip out to the great potato state in order to collect your price; the raffle is open to anyone nationwide that want to support trail advocacy.You can donate for your chance at the BETA 300RR Race Edition at the KLIM Cow Tag off-road event in person, or do it from the comfort of your home, here: www.sharetrails.org/cowtagThe Cow Tag event has already established itself as a good bit of fun. It’s a single day event, held in KLIM’s proving grounds of the Big Hole Mountain trail system. The Cow Tag is the culmination of strategy and fun, open to all riders that are up for a great challenge. With a wide range of prizes set aside for participants, riders will make their way through the trail system using maps and GPS tracks, searching for Cow Tags along the way.Individual riders will need to collect as many or perhaps the most challenging Cow Tags in exchange for raffle tickets. But that’s where the strategy comes into play: Do you go for the low hanging fruit and collect as many tickets as possible or go for the challenging, high value Cow Tags? When it’s all said and done, riders will turn in their Cow Tags for tickets, which in turn will be turned in for a chance to win some great prizes.The event will get the ball rolling on Friday evening with an Open House at KLIM’s headquarters in Rigby, Idaho. Riders will pick up their welcome packets and get to see the operation facilities first hand. If you can’t stop by Friday night, then you’ll have to check-in bright and early the next morning between the hours of 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. at Kelly Canyon Ski Resort. Make sure you aren’t late because the ride begins at 9:00 am.The KLIM Cow Tag event has a 250 rider limit and spots are already filling up fast. If you’d like to participate, head on over to www.klim.com/cow-tag-registration.But as we mentioned before, you don’t have to be a part of the KLIM Cow Tag event to get a shot at the BETA 300RR Race Edition. Just visit www.sharetrails.org/cowtag and make your ten dollar donation to be entered into the drawing.The Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC) is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.
For the entertaining story behind Arch Motorcycle from Gard Hollinger himself, you must listen to his podcast episode on Motos & Friends HERE
The guest segment of Motos and Friends is brought to you by the faster and most technologically advanced, 2023 Suzuki Hayabusa—visit your local dealer or suzukicycles.com to learn more.
In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
