Frequently Asked Questions
My partner isn't riding, do they need a ticket?
Yes. Every attendee needs a ticket, riding or not. Like going to a concert of your partners favorite band. You might not like the music, but you still need a ticket.
If there are more then one person on a bike do we both have to pay?
We have a 2-Up rate.
What kind of bikes are allowed?
Any street-legal motorcycle can be ridden to the Touratech Rally. It will be up to the rider to determine which riding opportunities will work for them and their bike.
Where do we sleep?
Space will be provided for all registered attendees to camp. There is some lodging nearby. There are a few motels around Plain, WA and in Leavenworth, WA. Book it early!
What is volunteering like?
It's fun! We require that all volunteers work two 4/hr shifts during the weekend. In exchange you get free admission and a sweet t-shirt. We'll definitely put you to work on your shifts.
I'm a beginning rider. Will there be rides that I'll be able to participate in?
We were all beginner riders at some point and have lots of fun routes and rides suggested for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders and a few group rides for newer riders too. There are also multiple motorcycle training schools on site providing classes that riders and especially beginner riders could benefit from before heading to the off-road routes. (please check for training costs associated for the different classes)
Are the classes and workshops free?
All of the classes and workshops are included in your admission EXCEPT on-hands ADV riding courses provided by an outside source. Those are paid for seperately.
What do we eat?
Bring food like any camping trip. There also will be food vendors onsite . There is a small store across the street from the venue and we're not far from restaurants. NO wood or charcoal burning stoves are allowed.
If I don't register early can I do it on the day I arrive?
It depends on whether the event is sold out. If not, than yes.
When is Rally East?
That will be August 14 - 18, 2024.
Are there day passes?
Day passes are not pre-sold. There will be day passes at the gate on Friday and Saturday. Availability is not guaranteed.
Why is RV and Car/Truck parking so expensive?
We want you to ride your motorcycle to the rally!!!!!
Is there water available?
Yes. We will have free water for rally participants. We encourage you to bring water too. You can't have enough
What if Parking is Sold Out?
We recommend finding a campsite in a nearby camp ground. We limit the 4-wheeled vehicles onsite. Why? It's an ADV Motorcycle rally... Also, if you check eventbrite regularly, parking will open up when there are cancellations.
If my motorcycle breaks, what do I do?
You'll be surrounded on all sides by riders experienced in "on the fly" repairs, so hopefully you can get it back to camp on two wheels and not 4... Bike recovery is your responsibility and we work with a local recovery service. If there is a cost incurred, it's yours to pay.
How many people will be there?
We expect around 1500 including vendors. Ticket sales will be capped this year to prevent overcrowding.
What type of tires do I need?
It's possible to do the rides on a 50/50 tire, but it may be more enjoyable if your riding on something geared towards off road use... Contintental TKC-80's or other knobbies are most popular.
If I crash who is responsible if I'm injured?
No crashing allowed, but if you do, you're responsible for any costs incurred. All participants are required to sign a waiver to enter the grounds. We'll have onsite medics.
Where do I get gas?
There are fuel stations within ten miles of the rally and a small fuel station in Plain, WA.
Is there stuff to buy?
Yes. Most vendors sell products. Touratech sells event souvenirs but no accessories.
Where do I park my trailer?
Trailer and RV parking is onsite and you need to purchase a pass. Trailers and RV's are parked seperately from the motorcycle/tent camping area. There are no RV utilities to plug into. It's a field.
Are there showers?
Yes. Cold water showers will be onsite and they feel awesome after a day in the saddle!
What if I show up to the rally early?
Early entry will be allowed to some vendors, volunteers and people attending the Jimmy Lewis class. If you show up on Wednesday and have not pre-arranged it, you won't be allowed entry.
Is there onsite security.
There will be onsite security 24/7.
When can I see the event schedule?
June 1, 2024
What about kids?
Kids 15 and under can enter FREE. They cannot ride motorcycles onsite. Only licensed riders can operate a motorcycle onsite. All motorcycles must have a valid plate. NO PIT BIKES!
