West Coast Rendezvous Motorcycle Rally

Friday, March 29, 2019 - Sunday, March 31, 2019

Hosted by Saddle Sore Ranch


West Coast Rendezvous is an annual, old school weekend party for 21 and older only. At WCR, we have on-site camping (tent and RV sites), cookouts, old school biker games, biker rodeo, swap meet, great area rides, our notorious nightly campfire parties and more... WCR is also the final destination for the Blue Collar Build Off, a nationwide, low budget bike building competition, as featured in The Horse - Backstreet Choppers Magazine, Quick Throttle Magazine and more.. We have a mixture of music. Some live, some Memorex. WCR2019 will also be featured in several major industry magazines, websites and media outlets.


The West Coast Rendezvous is held at the Saddle Sore Ranch just off of Route 66 on western edge of Arizona, where California, Nevada and Arizona all meet. It is on private property, on an unpaved road, that is almost entirely graded and maintained by the county. Motorcycles, cars, pickup trucks, SUV's, RV's, campers, etc can access the Ranch without issue, as long as you follow OUR MAP. Only follow OUR MAP. Do NOT follow GPS, or attempt any alternate route. 



Are "early arrival days". Longer distance travelers rolling in, setting up camp, maybe a few vendors setting up, etc. Go for some day rides, etc. Based on how many early arrivals we have, we may do some games, contests, etc. Music and campfire parties each night. 


During the day, most people go explore some of the AMAZING area rides, including the Grand Canyon West Rim with the famous glass "Skywalk", or ride up to the Hoover Dam, Hualapai Mountain, and more. You can also ride just over the hill to the town of Laughlin, NV for casinos, gambling, fishing, boating, jet skis etc right on the Colorado River. Don't forget to "Get Your Kicks on Route 66"... The area surrounding the Saddle Sore Ranch is home to the longest uninterrupted stretch of Route 66 that is still in existence today. Along the way, you can visit historic "Wild West" towns on the Route like Seligman, AZ., Hackberry, AZ., Oatman, AZ., Needles, CA., and more. Tour the Route 66 Museum in Kingman, AZ. Just down the road from the Saddle Sore Ranch, you can ride the world famous "Mohave Rattlesnake", with 222 curves in under 10 miles. Blue Collar Build Off teams will roll in around lunchtime. Wherever your adventures take you during the day, head back to the Ranch for the evening festivities that go deep into the night. Bands kick off at 6pm, Free Beer (while it lasts), Biker games, activities, campfire parties and contests including Ride-In Chopper Show, Best Body Paint, Best Tattoo, Best Beard, Best Beer Belly, Miss SSR contest, Blue Collar Build Off final judging and more. Our flat track is open for the "Run What Ya Brung" races. Choppers, mini bikes, pit bikes, go carts, bar stools, motorized coolers... Whatever... Run What Ya Brung... We also have the "SSR SCRAMBLE" which is a race down to the end of our (unpaved) road and back. Only about a mile round trip. This race is not just about being the fastest. Riders get extra points for funny and creative protective gear. How crazy can YOU get??? 


We pick a spot, and have a group ride in the morning, usually back around lunchtime. Those that stay behind at the ranch will have games and activities on-site. Then we will start packing up, saying our "Good Bye's", and start planning to come back next year. 

Our event is open to everyone that can show mutual respect. All bikes, riders, guests and colors. We will show you, your friends and your club the same level of respect that you show to us, our property and our guests. SSR is a neutral zone, unaffiliated with any club.


EVERYONE is welcome at the event, but mainly, the West Coast Rendezvous is a gathering (aka "rendezvous") of people from the west coast, and surrounding states. Including California, Oregon, Utah, Nevada and Arizona. We do get people in from as far away as Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, but we didn't feel right calling it the "East Coast Rendezvous". 


Expect unpaved roads, expect your bike to get dusty, expect bon fires, expect partial (or full) female nudity, and most of all, expect to have a kick ass time!!! For 2019, the WCR will host the final judging, awards ceremony and afterparty for the Blue Collar Build Off.


Samson Exhaust, Red Rock Harley-Davidson, Steve Soffa, Ricky Bongos, Viking Bags,  Biker Atlas, and more. The WCR promises to be one hell of a good time for all who attend. NO GLASS ALLOWED AT THE SADDLE SORE RANCH AND NO DISCHARGING OF FIREARMS. 


Vendor spots are limited and on a first come, first serve basis. Vendors must bring their own lighting and power supply. We MAY be able to provide electricity to vendor booths, but cannot guarantee it. Contact Rob if you would like to set up a vendor booth.

Don't want to camp? The Saddle Sore Ranch is located between the cities of Kingman, AZ and Laughlin, NV which are only about 15 to 20 miles away. Both cities offer all of the services you may want. Including hotels, shopping, dining, WalMart and more... Laughlin is on the Colorado River, and also offers Las Vegas style casinos and gambling.

Facebook Event

A down and dirty, old school biker rodeo camping event. Held at the Saddle Sore Ranch. An unaffiliatted, neutral venue. Free beer (while it lasts), ride-in chopper and rat rod show, biker games, onsite camping, maps and tips for daily area riding, nightly campfire parties, music, games, activities, free swap meet space, select vendors and so much more. Also featuring the judging and awards for the "Blue Collar Build Off", a nationwide low-budget bike building competition. As featured in The Horse Backstreet Choppers Magazine, Quick Throttle Magazine and more..


The West Coast Rendezvous is a very basic, old school event. It is held at the Saddle Sore, on the westernmost border of Arizona, approximately 20 miles from the California state line. It is called the "West Coast Rendezvous", because traditionally, it is a gathering (aka "Rendezvous") of people who mainly come from the West Coast. Although the majority of attendees are usually from California, Nevada and Arizona, we welcome everyone, and have had visitors from all over the world. It's nothing like Sturgis or any other big commercialized biker “rally". We may hire a band or two, a couple of select vendors, and buy some limited libations to give away for free (while they last).Tips are greatly appreciated. BYOB is also allowed and encouraged. We can’t buy everything that everyone will want, so if there is something you want, bring it.. There are no big name vendors selling junk you don't need and no shitty $20 corn dogs. We usually have some burgers and dogs to throw on the grill (while they last), and there is also a very basic selection of non-perishable food items available in the “General Store” onsite. Camping is first come, first served and everyone is encouraged to share the same space. “Town Square” is easy walking distance from any campsite so there's no need to drink and ride.

Admission covers your camping for two nights. If you just want to camp one night, it's the same cost. (We gotta pay for the supplies, porta potties, etc for the whole weekend no matter how many nights you show up.) We are limiting the number of tickets. This means your check in process will be faster and the campground won't get overcrowded. Tickets will go on sale about six months before the event.


When you arrive, head to the bar to get registered. Please have your id and a printout of your ticket with you to present for your registration. You will receive a wristband. Wristbands must be worn at all times.


We welcome everyone to our event, however it caters mainly to motorcycle riders. You are more than welcome to show up in a car, truck, motorhome, etc. and park in our RV section or down in the overflow parking, area by the Flat Track, but it won’t be allowed into the main area (aka “Town Square”) with the bikes or in the tent camping area.

Is your event all ages?

West Coast Rendezvous is geared towards those 21 and up! If you must bring children, we ask that you have them tucked away at dark. “Town Square” can get quite rowdy, and inappropriate for children. We can’t even guarantee that everything will be “G” rated even during the day. Remember, nudity is not an invitation, and total respect is required. Zero tolerance.

Can I reserve a specific spot?

All spots are first come, first serve. This applies to tent camping, rv spots, trailer spots and car parking.

Are tickets refundable or transferable?

Refunds are issued thru our ticket sales venue, Eventbrite, as per their guidelines. We are sorry but we are unable to transfer tickets.

Can I buy multiple tickets?

You can buy multiple tickets for your group. However, please realize you will be the ONLY person in control of collecting and distributing the tickets. Be prepared if you open this can of worms as we don't want to be the ones telling your buddies they can't get in until you show up. If you want to do this, make sure you get to camp first, we'll give you all the tickets you purchased and then you can hand them to your friends.

What does a ticket cover?

A ticket gets you 2 nights and 3 days camping at our campground, participation in the games, contests and activities, informal bike show, entertainment, music (live and/or Memorex), and any adult beverages while supplies last.

Motorcycle Only Event?

Primarily motorcycles, yes…. But not ONLY motorcycles. To make room for everyone who rides in, cars and trucks will have to park in the RV/Trailer area. Inside “Town Square”, and the tent camping area will be strictly motorcycles only.

I am arriving late, what do I do?

We will help you get in no matter what time you arrive. We do recommend getting in for the night by 6:00PM as that is when most of the festivities will kick off.

Are services close by?

The towns of Kingman, AZ and Laughlin, NV are each within 15 miles or so of the Saddle Sore Ranch. Each is well-stocked with everything you could need. Gas stations, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, WalMarts, convenience stores, rafting outfitters, breweries, etc.

What type of motorcycles are allowed?

All motorcycles and trikes are welcome. Due to our location, we don’t get any “Trailer Queens”, and that is just fine by us. It’s the rider that makes the bike, not the other way around, so show up with a good attitude and any motorcycle and you’ll be good to go.

I don't ride, can I still attend?

Absolutely! Depending on who all hangs back at the Ranch during the day, and doesn’t go out riding and exploring the area, we can throw together some games and activities, or you can do your own thing.. You might get bored during the day while everyone is out riding the local roads but we'd be happy to have you. We hope this event acts as a catalyst to get you on a motorcycle if you decide to come in your car the first time around.

Can I swim in the Colorado River?

Of course. Be careful and use common sense. There are many places up and down the river with good swimming holes and great fishing spots. You can also find rafting trips, and jet ski rentals very easily.

How do I become a vendor?

We are very selective as to the vendors we allow. If you would like to inquire, email
