    Why: To honor foreign moto travellers and show them that there is more to the USA than guns and roses. We will show them some of the real America. Hear what these foreign travellers have learned about moto travel. This rally will be of special interest to those who intend to travel outside the borders of North America.

    Where: 40 miles east of Eugene, Oregon, at the foothills of the Cascades, on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. Located on 15 acres of a former plant nursery near the end of the famous motorcycle road, the Aufderheide. Now the property is being developed as an ecological preserve for wildlife and plants.

    Who: All moto riders are invited. Free but primitive camping. Toilet but no showers. Learn to survive on your own. There are motels and other facilities within 6 miles.

    Schedule:Speakers are expected from Brazil and Germany as well as other countries plus local world travellers such as Tom Hunter who will speak on one of his recent travels. From Brazil will be Flavio Kenup whose web site is www.aventuraemduasrodas.com.br. Note: we are looking for a few 15-20 minute speakers on their moto trips. Volunteer please.

    Friday: Gather and a potluck bonfire. We eat what you bring. BYOD.

    Saturday: A side road trip to Eugene (40 miles) for Howling Coyote BBQ lunch (no host $7 to $15; reservations requested) and a visit to two semi-classic car museums. Along the way visit 5 covered bridges. Later, in the afternoon we gather back at the rally for short presentations by travellers. Wine and cheese by the River. In the evening, before the evening bonfire, we will cook the pizza you bring in our new wood fired outdoors pizza oven.

    Sunday: Leave or stay as you desire.

    RSVP. Please e-mail us if you are interested. It would be appreciated if we had a rough count of those who intend to attend and we will place you on a special e-mail list for last minute updates.
