Over Labor Day weekend in Durango, Colorado, the annual Four Corners Motorcycle Rally 2020 rolled on but with many challenges and changes.
“This year we focused on riding motorcycles in the great outdoors,” said John Oakes, Four Corners Motorcycle Rally event producer. “We had to make changes – but it happened!”
Trevor Bird, Oakes’ partner in the Four Corners Motorcycle Rally and owner of Durango Harley-Davidson stated, “People from all over the country came and were in the best spirits, grateful to have an opportunity to get out and ride.”
Hooligan Dirt Dash races were held at the Fairgrounds but under limited capacity and social distance.

“We went out of our way and it paid off.”
For motorcycle riders, the event is a way to get to see their friends from across the country; this year was no different in that sense.
