FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
It’s like Band Camp for Replica riders. Show up with your Replica, meet other Replica riders, have fun, learn about your bike, and how to improve your riding.
Replicas are motorcycles designed and inspired by MotoGP race bikes. They look like the race bikes, feature livery like the race bikes, and even include performance designes like the race bikes. For GPR Camp we focus this definition down to the smaller “50cc” bikes. For example the Aprilia RS50, Derbi GPR, and similar bikes.
You will get the most out of GPR Camp if you do, however this is an inclusive event, so if you have a similar bike you’ll be fine. However, bigger bikes like a 250 are probably not very compatible with the riding style of the “50cc” Replicas. Most people are riding kitted bikes, or a fast fifty.
This year GPR Camp 4 is being held on June 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th.

Yes your bike should be plated, and insured. Make sure your lights, and blinkers are fully functional in order to comply with the California law.
We highly recommend wearing full gear including a full face helmet, gauntleted gloves, armored jacket and pants, or a full suit, a back protector, and boots. The law however only requires you to wear a helmet on the roads in California. But seriously, get some good gear, and wear it.

Lunch & Fuel:
You should have enough money to cover your fuel, food, and beverages. Some rides will have lunch off site during the ride.
Food is not provided, but campers are encouraged to share, and participate in the pot-luck meals. Several of the attendees are vegetarian.
Yes we are camping in a group site for tents. The access road might be a little too tricky for large vehicles, nor is the site setup for vehicle camping.
We will be close to civilization, and some rides may include a lunch stop—however, in general you’ll want to bring food. We will be having diner together, and people are welcome to share potluck style. The campsite does provide a grill, and a fire pit. You are encouraged to bring cooking supplies, and firewood.
GPR Camp does NOT offer any medical insurance. It is your individual responsibility to ensure that you are adequately prepared for any medical costs associated with riding during GPR Camp. Please have good health insurance as even a minor slip up can send you to a medical facility. These little side trips can be really expensive, so be prepared!
GPR Camp participants are expected to bring their own bikes, and there are no local shops that rent appropriate motorcycles. If you need a bike check out the Market Place section on the foro. If you need help with your bike post up in the GPR Camp foro.
It is always a good idea to keep your bike in proper running order. Please make sure your bike is in good working order to insure everyone’s safety.
