The wife and I do most of our riding in the USA find the people more friendly than up our way.
We all like Canucks :)

I have a couple of suggestions:

Dubois, Wyoming
It's a small town East of the Jackson Hole area but has several motels and campgrounds and it's not as pricey as staying in the Jackson Valley.  From Dubois you  can ride West over the Togwotee Pass to Teton National Park and Jackson, WY or Yellowstone.   For dirt, there is the Union Pass Road, a pretty tame route from Dubois to Cora (near Pinedale, WY).  Other dirt routes that are not difficult in the area include   the Grays River Road, and the Ashton Flag Ranch Road.     You can also ride up to Cody, Wy and see the Buffalo Bill Center and Cody Firearms Museum.

A little more West:

McCall, Idaho
A small resort town near the IDBDR  with plenty of motels and a State Park (with showers) for camping.   

Or we can look at  the NW Colorado area with Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge, Browns Hole, Steamboat Springs

I ate breakfast in Red Lodge last August and rode the Beartooth 8)
I wonder what kind of dirt is around there? Riding around Yellowstone is no fun in the summer. Too many people. We used to rent snow machines in West Yellowstone and ride around there in the winter until they closed us out.

Limey has been riding in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana to much to enjoy northern Ontario any more.

Back in my V-Strom days I did several rallies at the Iron Horse.  http://ironhorsenc.com/  The facility is fantastic with a camp ground, cabins and great food on-site.  The V-Strom group would book it in advance and we had groups of about 100.  The area has some of the best paved roads in the eastern US.  I'm sure there are great dirt options there, but I never got to try them. 

I realize the east coast has never been in favor for the Tenere event, but still thought I'd throw it out there.

Check out videos from the Morrison Jeep Trail. Entrance from the west off of Beartooth isn't too difficult but as you travel east the road gets much rougher and is not big-bike friendly, especially the switchbacks near the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone canyon.

The Iron Horse Lodge is legit, only 10 minutes from Robbinsville. There is a bike rental facility just across the road (NC 28) as you're driving in.

I was locked and loaded for the 2016 UT rally, then ended up getting a job offer I couldn't refuse starting 2 weeks before the rally.


So now I'm looking West for Sept/Oct of 2017.  If there's a Super Tenere rally out there, I'd likely plan my trip around it ... again... and hopefully actually get to go this time.


If there was something in the East, I'd be all over it, but it would be less epic for me. 


When stuff starts being a day or more of driving/ riding to get to, it's orders of magnitude harder to pull off for me.  A trip to UT costs me 4-6 LONG days of driving/ riding just to get there and back.  If I can only swing a week off, that's somewhere between grueling and untenable.

I have been following this thread. I have been a Tenere owner for less than two years and a member of this forum for about the same amount of time.
I have never attended a rally put on by this group.

My question is what exactly goes into a "national" rally?
Are there tech sessions, seminars or published routes? -JEP-
