I can guarantee there will be updates. Just look at the WeSTOC 20 thread. Wink  It's going to be hard to match the banquet food we had this year in Spokane Valley, but I'll try! The riding should be good too. Good people too. Would be great to meet you there....

OK. Our WeSTOC 21 room block has been cleared up, finally! Smile We have dbl queen rooms and single king rooms available. There are far more (2) queen rooms at this property, so if your preference is a king room you should book now.

We have a limited number of rooms available at the reduced rate for the Sunday night before WeSTOC and for the Friday night after WeSTOC. These are based on hotel availability and not part of our formal block. We be able to add additional rooms later, but only if they are available. If you typically like to arrive early or stay late be sure and book early.

I was also giving a URL which takes you directly to our Personalized Group Page, (POG), if you prefer to book on-line. You can access the extra days on-line by extending your arrival/departure date(s). Just browse to the "hotel" page on http://WeSTOC.org and click the DoubleTree icon to access the POG.

I've got the first, high-res base-map graphic created for the ‪#‎WeSTOC21‬ route boards. Next step is to start annotating it with the routes, major cities and highway designations. We're also working on this year's graphic for the shirts and swag. Check us out at http://WeSTOC.org and make your plans to join us in Grand Junction, CO in late August!

I can't reserve a room - my attendance will be a game-time decision.   I'd give it 20/80 against, at this point.   New baby coming in April...   Thumbsup

BTW, you can reserve a room and cancel it anytime within 24 hours of the event. Standard hotel cancellation rules apply. Even if you think you be coming you can lock in the reduced room rate, but still cancel within 24 hours if you can't attend. we've closed out the room block you'd have to pay the going rate for your room id you get it last minute.

As for the $80 rally fee, that is also refundable, less PayPal fees, within 30 days of the event. The fee goes up to $90 30 days out and we stop accepting registrations a week before the event. We need to dial in the banquet numbers by that time, thus the deadline. So you can wait until 30 days before the event to register at $80, but it'll cost you an extra $10 to register in the few weeks before the event.

We try to make things as fair as possible, but we still need to try and get final numbers and protect ourselves from getting stuck will costs of no-shows within a reasonable time. Smile All this being said, anyone can show up and hang out, shoot the breeze and ride. You just miss out on the meals, door prizes, any presentations and swag if you don't pay the rally fee.

Happy New Year everyone!

Plans are well underway to make this year’s WeSTOC in Grand Junction, Colorado another memorable one!  

WeSTOC 21 will be held at the Grand Junction DoubleTree Hotel. You can learn more about this property at http://westoc.org/doubletree-hotel.

You can reserve your room at our custom reservations page via the following link; http://doubletree.hilton.com/en/dt/groups/personalized/G/GJTDTDT-WR6-20160829/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG

We’ve made many changes on the rides section of the WeSTOC 21 site. If you haven’t
visited recently, you’ll want to take a look at http://WeSTOC.org/rides.  

Design of this year’s shirt graphic and logo has started. Keep your eye on the WeSTOC 21 ‘Gear’ page
for announcement of the design and for shirt sales; http://westoc.org/gear.

To date we have 36 riders signed up for WeSTOC 21. Make your plans to join us at the end of August by registering at http://westoc.org/register-now!

Hope to see you in Colorado later this year!!

Your WeSTOC 21 disorganization team

I just realized this event should be in Zone 3! Whoops!! It's close to being in the middle of the Nation....  Smile

I've been posting here for the last couple of years to see if we can get some of you guys to join us. Because we've had so many people move on to other Sport Touring platforms we're also trying to become more manufacturer/model agnostic. Kind of fits in with Sport-Touring.net. Has/does ST.net ever have a National event?

In the end it all boils down to the people and the common passion for riding rather than what bike you're on. Heck, I meet up and hang out with people I've met at WeSTOC at non-motorcycle gatherings. There are great people on all of these forums. I visited an FJR event up here in WA years ago to check out a possible WeSTOC venue. It felt the same as a WeSTOC, just a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts I hadn't had the pleasure to met yet....

We nominate you to take over this site and bring all your friends with you.  WeSToc can be the ST.n National from now on.  After all - the ST in SToc just stands for Sport Touring anyway.

The original Honda ST list, which was the birthplace of WeSTOC in '96, is still going strong. It's the home of the committee which determines the location for WeSTOC each year. We also help organize, or actually organize the event if required. http://www.st-riders.net.

A few of our listers frequent this site too and that's how I was introduced to this forum. That and when I met Bubba up in Castlegar during a ride through his home town a few years back.

Personally I'm taking a hard look at the new '16 Yamaha FJR as my ST1300 is approaching 100k miles and I'm considering replacing it. Not that it needs replacing, but it feels like it might be time to try something new. Who knows, I might not be at WeSTOC on a Honda this year.  Wink

It would be great to have some of you Sport-Touring.net folks join us in Grand Junction this August. As of today we have 40 registered to attend. Based on recent history we're expecting/planning for 150 or more. The more the merrier!!

My friend Jim Henke found this GREAT video about the Unaweep Tabeguache Scenic Byway. Check it out!

https://youtu.be/axMtDyHHQN0

The State of Colorado has 25 scenic & historic byways, the most of any State. SW Colorado has the largest number of scenic drives. This scenic byway starts a mere 15 miles from the WeSTOC hotel.

Join us this August at WeSTOC 21!

We’re pleased to announce that Richard Battles, owner of RKA Luggage, will be joining us at WeSTOC this year! He will be conducting two seminars during our rally.

The first presentation will be Monday night at the riders’ meeting and is entitled “The R.I.D.E.,” a seminar on communications systems. On Tuesday morning Richard will conduct his second seminar entitled “So, I gotta video camera, now whattaidowithit?”

Richard has also generously agreed to donate some door prizes for the drawing at Thursday’s closing banquet.

Join us at WeSTOC 21 and hear what Richard has to say about these two technologies.

We are now taking orders for WeSTOC 21 shirts!!

This year’s design features a 4 color STOC logo on the front incorporating a stylized version of the Colorado State flag. The 3 color graphic on the back depicts Grand Mesa, the largest mesa in the world, located just east of Grand Junction.

The WeSTOC 21 team would like to thank Annette Wichmann & John Warga for their work on this year’s shirt design!!

Nice design. Too bad your ride is not at a different time. I go over there a couple of times a year. One of my riding buddies lives in Grand Junction!





On another note, I don't think there are more than a couple here in Region 1 that know where Colorado is.

Thank you!

Ya, I spaced and posted it to the same region as last year's event in Spokane Valley. Didn't want to post it multiple locations and risk upsetting the moderators. WeSTOC is actually a Western US event so it technically could be posted in a few regions. We have people coming from all over the US. We even have a couple coming from Australia! Smile

I'm heading to Grand Junction on the 19th to do a WeSTOC recon run, meet with the hotel staff and shoot some video along the recommended rides. Smile

Maybe I'll post a link in the CO region back to this thread. Thanks for the heads up!
