Dork in the Road: Touratech Rally West 2022 – Part 2

The second half of the 2022 Touratech Rally was somehow even more awesome than the first two days. We got up first thing in the morning and headed out, me on my Yamaha Tenere 700 and Travis on his Honda Africa Twin. Our first stop was the Tyee Mountain Lookout, which is not easy to get to. The rocky, steep, and technical road to the top was the most difficult thing I’ve ever ridden on an adventure motorcycle and not surprisingly, my Tenere 700 handled it magnificently.

Once we reached the top, we were rewarded with one of the most breathtaking views I’ve ever seen. Tyee Mountain Lookout is one of my favorite places on the planet. Afterward, we did a bit more Honda Africa Twin and Yamaha Tenere 700 off road riding to get down the mountain before heading out to check out the Sugarloaf Lookout. Sugarloaf was amazing, as well.

Afterward, the Tenere 700 and Africa Twin carried us down the mountain and back to camp, where we checked out the Touratech Rally slow race and Touratech Rally raffle drawings before retiring to our campsite for some cigars, beverages, and lightsabers? Let’s just say Dork in the Road camping is never boring…
