The 41st annual Brass Monkey is going to be held February 14, 15 and 16 (President's Day holiday) at Mecca Beach at the Salton Sea. Highway CA110, south of the I 10 at Indio, on the east side of the Salton Sea.
For the first time in over 30 years of attending this, this year I'll have a sidecar! My BMW with Velorex is running perfect and for a freeway blast and good state roads, I'm really looking forward to it.
Hope to see lots of folks there!
(Sorry for the misinformation last time Just me playing space cadet!)

2014 Brass Monkey ride and Campout.
Dates are Feb. 14th,15th,16th and 17th 2014 Its at the same place the Airheads BMW Club had there campout in November. It's at the Salton Sea California State Park campground on Mecca Beach located on the east side of the Salton Sea.
The campgrounds has paved roads, solar heated showers, flush toilets,and plenty of shade. The Sunsets in the evening are spectacular and you can pitch your tent right on the edge of the lake; wake up to the sounds of pelicans and other sea birds that call this place home.
Eight miles south is the village of Bombay Beach, which has a bar, a convenience store, and an American Legion Hall which serves very good (and extremely inexpensive) breakfast, lunch & Dinner.
Wendell at the Ski Inn will keep you hydrated with some very stiff drinks and you can mingle with the locals who rarely see outsiders.
If you travel 15 miles north, you will find the town of Mecca with gas, grocery stores and restaurants serving very authentic Mexican food.
You can also bring your own food, drink and provisions to take care of yourself right there at the campground. There is plenty of running water and picnic tables.
Slab City, Salvation Mountain, the mud pots, the Salton Sea visitors center and Alfaro's Date Ranch also make great spots to visit while you're in the region.This is a very motorcycle friendly campground so we can have many bikes per site, which well keep the cost down.
