Waiting List Information
Note that there are always cancelations for this event, as the plans for the participants may change unexpectedly. Entries received after the 500-rider cutoff will be placed on the waiting list in the order in which they are received. (An entry with a check is required to be placed on the waiting list. If you would like to be removed from the waiting list, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.) I will contact riders on the waiting list in the order in which they were received, as slots become available.
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.
