Your Next Event

I run the site Usdualsports which is a site I built as a hobby to help grow the sport and make it easy for riders to find events to attend. I always like hearing which events are the best and ones that riders won't miss that way I can cherry pick the good events.

So lets hear which events this year you won't miss and which events you wish you could do.

Nice site and service.

https://www.usdualsports.com/

I like the idea of reading reviews of dual sport events....but.... Early last year I lugged my KLR and camping gear about 600 miles (one way) to a three day dual sport rally. On the first day, no one showed. Fortunately, I had a general idea of the area and rode, but only it's paved side. On the second day, my ride-group and I were treated to an 8 hour ride through heavy tourist traffic, that included about 2 total miles of dirt roads the entire day, and the lead guy just disappeared at some point toward the end leaving me to get everyone back to base camp since I had a GPS. On the third day, me and three other guys got some maps and had a nice day dual sportin' on our own. Even though that was a bad experience, I'm not inclined throw out the names of the group and group organizer along with a bad review on your or other websites. I am sure that the displeasure that the participants had got back to them and they seemed respectable enough to fix the problems...not that I'll ever return.

As for groups like the AMA and the dual sport series, you can trust those are going to be first class events. But they're pricey too. Devils Creek was $175 a rider (excluding camping).

Man that doesn't sound like a fun experience. Did you find that event on my site? I try to keep the events I post on my site ones that clubs put on that way they are good events that are well ran.

Actually, this is the first I'm seeing your site. Looks good. It is in my saved file now. I'll definitely be referring to it and looking at the reviews.

Next rallys for me are the Southern Discovery Rally in Tennessee (inaugural event) and the Hooch in North Georgia, both are on your site. If I come across something that looks good I'll let you know.

No I moved it to wordpress a few months ago and have had nothing but issues with the most recent being someone hacked into it and erased all the files. I'm not moving it and pretty much starting from square 1 but making progress.

If you go to www.usdualsports.com it is live and the dates should be update by the end of the weekend.
