In the long and storied tradition of BARF's Rydther Rally, after a one year break we are returning again to Hawthorne, NV. This rally offers the opportunity to sample the very best riding in the Sierra Nevada mountains both going to and coming home from Hawthorne. Hawthorne itself it a sleepy town in the desert that has welcomed BARF nearly every fall for the last 10 years of great riding, fun by the pool, and drool inducing BBQ.
In addition to the epic routes over Sierra passes, this rally offers sightseeing, dirt road exploring, ghost town visiting, and an excuse to have lunch at the Whoa Nellie Deli. Whether you've done lots of traveling on a motorcycle, or this will be your first overnight trip on a bike, the Hawthorne rally is for you!
Read through the rally info, and plan accordingly. For those that are new to the BARF rallies, please read through the below information and/or ask anyone in the Rally thread, when we release it for more info, riding groups, tips, etc...
See y'all on the road!
