Most of all we want a safe ride. We are not leading rides, however, you will be able to ride with experienced local riders. Please remember safety starts with you. Your judgment is the key to your well-being. Do not get over your head. This is not a race. There is no prize. Just enjoy yourself and stay in one piece.

On our Adventure Moto web site there are “Ride Rules”. We encourage you to read and understand these rules. The rules are a summary of the hard earned lessons most experienced riders have come to follow. If you are riding with a group it is everyone’s responsibility to follow these rules. The group is only as strong as the weakest rider. This applies to skill just like discipline following the ride rules.

Have fun! Be safe. We hope you appreciate the great group of adventure riders who share your passion for riding and your appreciation of the natural wonder we all cherish.

Yours truly,

Mike, J, Carl & George

Dangberg Summer Concert Series

The Novelists, a nationally touring acoustic group with multiple lead singers, are the headliners. They've built their sound around storytelling and four-part harmonies. The group’s debut release, Backstory, is a dense, flawlessly executed nine-song acoustic introduction to the songwriting, musicianship and artistry of its band members.

A sultry vocalist, Vanessa Littrell, introduces the evening in the style of Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones. With two albums of original songs, and a third on the way, she is a local favorite.

$10/adults, free for 16 and younger when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available locally at Joyce’s Fine Jewelry, Battle Born Wine, Plant It Nursery and The Entertainer. Or, on-line ticketing is at:

You'll enjoy many of these hits and more at his outdoor concert at the Carson Valley Inn on August 23.

One of the true hitmakers of the 1990's, Collin Raye still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals on his StarPointe Records label.
