MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The Los Ancianos Tecate Enduro will be December 2, 2017
Were looking at the same general format as last years successful event with a few changes.  Look for updates as decisions are made, who knows?  Maybe a remote lunch/pit location (really remote)  definitely lots of new/resurrected trails. #clubnews

Roland Reed attended his last meeting of the Los Ancianos Motorcycle Club earlier this month. Cancer took him from us last week. Roland had been an active member of the club since 1966 – over 50 years of solid contributions to the Los Ancianos, dirt bikes, and Baja adventures.

Along the way he owned and operated Lemon Grove Honda, raced Baja, was the co-founder of Maxima Oils, sponsored racers like Bill Silverthorn and Gene Fetty, and that is just the moto part of his legacy. He was still riding into his early 80s and remains an inspiration and example to all of us.

Roland didn’t just ride Baja trails and roads, he was a true explorer of the Baja backcountry. By moto and by truck he traveled to many out of the way places, made friends with remote rancher families, and sought out the pictographs and rock paintings of the early Baja dwellers, always pushing to see new things and establish new routes.

Roland was a key part of the Los Ancianos’ history, working our early races here in Southern California and making our Tecate 500 Enduros the legend that they remain today. A night around the campfire with Roland was a way to share his adventures. He was a great storyteller, a world traveler, and he could talk about everything from Baja trails to setting up factories in Taiwan, to gem mining in Pala, down to the molecular structure of oil additives and how they effected motorcycle engines.

Roland will be deeply missed by his fellow Ancianos and his family and friends. We were lucky to know him and to ride with him. #clubnews

Ray AbbottYou know when you see that beer commercial with the "world's most interesting man"? Well that guy is a phony. Roland was the real deal. I am lucky to have been his friend and to have had him enrich my life by sharing his many experiences, interests and adventures.

Ray AbbottThis is a benefit ride and all proceeds go to the cost of the ride and to local ranchers, schools, etc. Come join us for a fun day and after ride party. Plenty of camping available but the roads to camp aren't for motorhomes. See you there! Please post your questions here as comments so everyone can benefit from the information.

Seth M. JarskyHey everybody - I've registered and paid for the Rancher's Benefit ride, but something came up and cannot attend. Ray said I can transfer it to someone else, so if you want to grab my spot and pay me back somehow let me know. BRAAAP!
