The Brass Monkey

What is it? … One of the best informal motorcycle rallies, this year
in its 35th year. Originally patterned after Germany's Elefanten
Treffen, it was intended to be a cold-weather snow-camping rally for
the die-hard. For the most part this meant sidecarists although solo
riders were welcomed.

The first Brass Monkey was held in Flagstaff (I believe in December)
at the KOA. Over the years the venue has shifted to snow-free but
occasionally nippy climes and to south of the border in Mexico.

The tradition of winter rallying has been maintained with the
Presidents Day long weekend in February being the favored dates.

Although generally thought of as a sidecar rally, solo riders attend
and are welcome. This is still essentially a camping rally, although
since the Brass Monkey is a spontaneous gathering with everyone
pitching in there is no one to "in charge" to complain if you find a
local motel and visit during the day.

Be warned that it's way more fun if you camp.

When is it?… The long Presidents' Day weekend, Friday (if you skip
work) Saturday, Sunday and Monday. February 15, 16, 17, and 18, 2008

Where is it?… The campground is at Cottonwood Cove Campground on
the Colorado River. This is on Lake Mojave at the south end of the
Lake Mead Recreation Area.

Cottonwood Cove is located 14 miles East of Searchlight Nevada on
Route 164. There is motel at the Cottonwood Cove Resort if you're not
