If anyoen can recommend a good emergency map for the tank bag as well, that would be great.
They are useful but not as a primary tool.

I would carry Trails Illustrated 792 and 791 if you want a good back up map.

Anybody know the protocol if we need to cancel and let someone in from the waitlist, if any? My buddy had to bail on me so we are looking at next year. Many thanks!

As a AMA member for 17 years who lives in VA AND a GS owner, I am very bummed that I found out about this so late. Can someone send me the route that I have read so many good things about so that I can ride it with my friends at a later date!?
Thank you

cool at night 40's and upper 60's during the day

Thank you
Sorry you missed this year's Shenandoah 500, Eddy Alvarez! Another time, perhaps. The event has been listed in the AMA magazine, American Motorcyclist, for some issues (look under, "AMA Dual-Sport/Adventure Series;" on p. 46 of the September, 2011, issue)..

Routing information isn't commonly available, since private property with unique event easement is involved.

You do realize you're posting to the 2011 thread??? Just thought I'd mention it.
