    Default The Official 2017 NW Overland Rally Thread

    OK, it's that time of the year again, time to start up an official thread for the upcoming NWOR!

    The location is the same, in Plain WA, although we are looking at modifying the field layout a bit (and renting more field) to give everyone (including the vendors) more space.

    The weekend will be a week earlier than last year, it will be Fathers Day weekend, June 15-18, so make sure to tell your kids that they can skip the paisley tie and the gift certificate to Red Robin this year, say you want to go to the NWOR for Fathers Day instead. And if you are looking for a gift or your dad, well here you go. ;-)

    Seriously though, the rally finishes on Sunday morning, so unless you need to drive 8 hours to get home, you should have plenty of time to get home for dinner with dad if needed.


    FYI, we have now completely separated the NWOR and the Touratech rallies. They will be in the same location, but on separate weekends. So you are of course welcome on your bike at NWOR, or to bring bikes with you, but we will no longer be having the dedicated bike trips and bike classes.

    As always, we are looking for ideas and suggestions for improvement, or just ideas that would be fun to do.

    And if you see a cool rig and want to invite them to the NWOR, print this little oval out and stick it under their wiper-blade.

    Cheers

    Ray
