Here is a letter I received from an outraged resident of Leesville regarding the behavior of some of the riders on the 2107 Sheetiron 300 Dualsport. Let's respect the locals out there.


Leesville letter


Here is another post from a resident of Leesville who was justifiably disturbed by the behavior of some of the 2017 Sheetiron 300 Dualsport participants. I cannot stress enough the importance of being courteous, responsible, and safe on this event. To do otherwise will jeopardize our ability to host this event in the future. The Golden Rule works for everybody.

This two-day ride begins in Stonyford on Saturday morning, ends up in Fort Bragg on Saturday night, and returns to Stonyford on Sunday afternoon. It takes place each year on the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend. This ride is non-competitive, and riders of all abilities are welcomed. Hard and easy splits are available. 

 

Secure camping is available all weekend at the Stonyford Rodeo Grounds. Riders are responsible for making their own accommodations in Fort Bragg. The Oakland Motorcycle Club provides transportation of small gear bags and any necessary camping equipment to and from Fort Bragg.

 

Open Letter to Sheetiron 300 Riders

 

The flyer/application for the 2017 Sheetiron 300 Dualsport is posted below.


 

 

 

IMPORTANT:

Your bike must be able to go a minimum of 100 miles between fuel stops and be in sound mechanical condition for three hundred miles of trails, dirt roads, and pavement. A rollchart and a rider map will be provided to you at sign-in after you pass the tech and sound inspection. You will need a Jart-style rollchart holder. Please do not try to do the ride without a rollchart holder; all the information, routes, and instructions will be on the rollchart. Sorry, no GPS tracks are available.
 

At sign-in for the Sheetiron 300 Dualsport, all riders will be required to sign a waiver. Please read this waiver prior to your arrival at the event.

 

Don't be a squirrel: Due to the strict Forest Service laws and our ride being threatened with permanent cancelation, ALL BIKES must meet the 96db noise regulation, have a US Forest Service approved spark arrestor, and be LEGALLY licensed and equipped for street use. Please travel safely and slowly through residential areas and near private farms, ranches, cabins, and homes. Be considerate, represent our sport responsibly, and help us save this ride for future years.

 

The Oakland Motorcycle Club is a sanctioned AMA promotor, a licensee of the Mendocino National Forest, and an equal opportunity service provider. The U.S. Forest Service requests that you take care not to spread noxious weeds. See here and here.

Note: If you bring your non-street-legal motocross bike with your wife’s license plate zip-tied to the back fender, you will not be able to participate in our ride! (This is for the good of the sport and this ride, and to keep your bike from being impounded, and to keep you from seeing the inside of the county pokey.)

 

Please refer to these rider instructions for details about the event.
