2014 SOBOBA Invitational Trail Ride

SOBOBA

Ride the SOBOBA Indian Reservation’s private hills, trails and water-crossings during the famous SOBOBA Trail Ride.  Led by off-road great Malcolm Smith, this ride takes you back in time when you could ride your off-road motorcycle on trails that were not blocked by fences, housing tracks or pesky neighbors.  Discover why professional riders, industry greats, Hollywood stuntmen and riders of all levels congregate each year to get their one shot to ride where no one is allowed to ride the rest of the year.  This ride is challenging, but not impossible for riders of lower skill levels. It’s an event and you need to be a part of it!

Optional sound testing of your motorcycle will be available at the Soboba Trail Ride Courtesy of Chris Real of DPS Technical and the Honda Rider’s Club.

When:

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Where:

SOBOBA, 23333 Soboba Rd, San Jacinto, CA 92583

2013 Torture Test November 16

DPS Team,

This is the first announcement pertaining to the 2013 DirtRider Magazine Torture Test.

When:                  November 16th, 2013

Where:                 Racetown 395, Adelanto, CA.

What:                    DPS will be providing technical services at this event. We will be performing  the official sound testing for all of the teams and we will have a few additional activities available in our area.  I anticipate a very busy first half of the day, 8 AM – 12 PM.

Public Information:         http://www.dirtrider.com/features/dirt-rider-torture-test-2013/

Information for our guests:         I expect that the morning hours will be very enjoyable for people to view as several activities will be going on and the track should be perfect for photos.  It is somewhat common for wind to be an issue in the late afternoon, therefore guests should be advised of this potential consideration.  It is my plan to have an area set up for our VIPs and friends.  I am going to have an area near our pit for our friends who ride out can store their riding gear.

Due to my technical support activities and a busy schedule I am not planning on hosting a meal or an official social hour.  Our guests and friends should plan on being self contained.

Team Information:        I will have our support trailer present and I will also have our Endurocross sponsor display present, however this event is not part of DPS Technical Motorsports 2013 Endurocross activities and I welcome other guests to attend.

DPS will not be entering a team in this event as our last event of the 2013 Endurocross season is the following weekend in Las Vegas. I will have at least one “Photo Bike” available for photos.

I plan to go out to Adelanto on Friday November 16th to set up our area. With this in mind, please know that I will have limited communications on 11/15/13.

More information to come.

Respectfully,

Chris Real
President

King of the Motos – 2012

INFORMATION RELEASE

RE: 2012 King Of The Motos                                                     February 8/9, 2012

In conjunction with the King of the Hammer’s off road event an extreme off road motorcycle race took place, “King of The Moto’s”.  This race was by invitation only and was attended by many of the top international off road racers.  For information on the KOH event visit www.ultra4racing.com.  This is truly an amazing world class special off road event.

DPS Technical provided environmental protection and technical inspection for the 2012 King Of The Motos extreme off road motorcycle event.

As one of the service providers we performed the sound check and spark arrestor inspection portion of the technical inspection on each motorcycle and coordinated the remote fueling areas.

Technical inspection was held in the K.O.M sign in area.  Each motorcycle entered received a vehicle inspection that included a visual inspection of safety related components and controls.  We performed an inspection of the muffler and spark arrestor and conducted an SAE J1287 stationary sound test (96 dBA Maximum limit).  No vehicles were allowed to start without passing technical inspection.

At the conclusion of the event finishing motorcycles were inspected for compliance.  Our inspection noted that none of the motorcycles had been tampered with and all were found to be in compliance.

As part of our service we instructed each rider on the required remote pit stop fueling procedure.  We also provided verbal instructions to each fuel pit team and provided written instructions and the procedure for each Pit Captain on how the fuel area was to be setup and managed.

I personally visited a fuel pit area and observed the fueling areas and I am satisfied that the fuel areas were properly managed.  It should be noted that land management staff also viewed several of the fueling areas and observed the procedures and had no negative comments.

I am looking forward to next year.
