Hosted by Saddle Sore Ranch
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.
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".
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.
