  Ride Disclaimer & Waiver


In addition to requiring the use of a DOT approved helmet on all MTF rides, the MTF Flower Sniffin Committee strongly encourages the use of Motorcycle specific protective clothing and footwear while participating in any Flower Sniffin event. ATGATT reduces the severity of injuries in an accident and we want every participant in our events to be as safe as possible.

Also the MTF Flower Sniffin Committee strongly encourages each participant in our events to self assess their riding style, interests, need for breaks and riding skill level and to keep that assessment in mind when choosing a riding partner or small group (2-4 riders) to ride with at our events. Sharing the road with someone of similar interests and riding style not only makes the ride more enjoyable for you, but safer for everyone.

Local Points of Interest

Suggested Rides/Routes

  • Flower Sniffin' Routes  (Map Source File)

  • Rough Roads Riders:
      Buena Vista sits right in the heart of spectacular dual-sport riding country -- providing us the opportunity to offer multiple ride choices, depending on your type of bike or experience level. MTF rough roads rides are group led rides as our numbers are generally small, and will be guided by a MTF member familiar with the route. Details, planned routes, and further discussion can be found in the Buena Vista RRR - General Discussion thread on the forum.
