Dear Trail Enthusiast,

A number of great Dual-Sport and 4x4 events are occurring this summer and it would be impossible to mention them all. However, QWR is planning to attend two events that feature diverse OHV opportunities for dual-sport, adventure bike, SUV, ATV, UTV, and 4x4s.


The Dust Devils Motorcycle Club is hosting its 2013 Ride Reno 200 Dual Sport Ride on September 13-15, 2013. It is an AMA National Event and this year it also has loops for adventure bikes. QWR and its Sound Trails Initiative will be there with  Quest sound testing equipment to offer the SAE J-1287 20-inch sound test to help educate riders about using sound compliant exhaust systems.


This ride takes you up into the Sierra Nevada Mountains where you will see spectacular forested lands and back through the high desert where wild mustangs can often be seen.

QWR will also be at the 2013 Sierra Trek hosted by the California Association of Four-Wheel Drive Clubs. This event runs from August 8-11, 2013. According to the club, Sierra Trek is the granddaddy of all Cal 4 events. It is held in Northern California near Truckee. The event takes participants over the famous Fordyce Trail and the surrounding areas via SUV, ATV, modified 4x4 vehicles and dedicated trail rigs.

Cal 4 is working hard to introduce new and fun activities for families that we know you will enjoy. You can still run the Fordyce trail with the confidence that the trail staff will make your adventure memorable!


Cal 4 is also bringing back two-day SUV and the ATV/UTV runs in additions to the challenging 4x4 trail rides.


QWR and STI will also be at this event and will be making the SUV adventure touring runs. We will also be manning the BRC booth and talking with riders about responsible use of system roads, trails, and areas. This is a great event for those who want a high elevation OHV experience in an alpine setting.

I hope to see you this summer on the trail!
