Funny how there are no events or rallys in July. Don't people ride in July! I have that week off (Week of the 4th) and would be fun to travel to a ride or event outside of this area if anybody knows of any?

I just looked at the dates for the events and they appear to all be advertisements for events in 2011. Are there any scheduled for 2012 yet?

2012 Joseph Dual Sport Ride

Heres a quiet little dual sport ride put on by the WVTRA. I have attended this little gem for the last couple of years.
This is not Tom's 300 plus rider dual sport. Not to take anything away from the Black Dog, been there, done that, had a great time but the smaller rides are more to my liking.
Clayton and company put on a steller event. The rides are great, beautiful scenery, and rumor has it that this years ride is going to be lots of single track!

Talking Black Dog! Black Dog!

Fellow Inmates,

It is my great misfortune to only attend one rally a year, yes for all the dumb reasons. However, the Black Dog approaches (http://www.blackdogdualsport.com/bd_events.htm), and I've finally reached farkle levels that will allow me to actually ride out to it.

Anyone going? Anyone want to group up into an intimidating mass of tall skinny bikes? Oh, sorry, GS12s would be welcome too, of course.

Having nothing to compare it too I can't say the B.D. is absolutely the best, but it certainly does NOT suck. As a total newb Dser I got just a little more experience than I wanted the first time, and again the second time. Perfect. Two different courses, A and B, friendly folks (assuming one does not tear up the grass in the campground, sorry Tom), and there's even a shop with a welding machine nearby in case one happens to rip off a foot-peg bracket. And of course prizes.

Okay, so I'm looking forward to it a lot. You would too if your life was ruled by integral calculus.

PEACE!!

Fort rock dual sport

The Lobos dual sport ride is coming up in a couple of weeks (6/23-6/24). Two days of premium high desert riding!

Oh and if you only do one ride a year... get a life

"Get a life" the man says. Hmm.

I wish you could have seen the Rubicon at the Black Dog. Even more I wish you could have driven a KLR through it.

Fort Rock Questions/details

I wasn't sure I'd be able to go to the Fort Rock Dualsport ride hosted by the Lobos this coming weekend, but it looks like it's going to work out and I'll be able to go.

The Lobos flyer and web site are pretty light on any kind of details. Basically it looks like I should plan to be at the center of "downtown" Fort Rock on Sat. at 8 AM.

However, there is no mention of:
1 - Where to camp? Somewhere in Fort Rock, or just my choice of nearby Forest Service campgrounds.

2 - Any meals? The Black Dog had lunch for at least one day, anything like that happening on this ride?

I had the same thought. From what I could gather from last year's event, it centers around the town's one restaurant/bar. I plan on bringing food; no hurt in being over prepared.
