So, the answer is that the 2010 version is the best route. 2009 is probably the least desirable.
Thanks for clearing that up. I cannot open the link you posted it looks like you have to be a member. Could you email it to me if I pm you my email?

Thanks, Scott

The 2010 map download link doesn't work for me either. Possibly a typo in the URL?

That link seems to be dead, could you post an updated version or PM me the link? I really want to do this either on Memorial Day or as part of the official run one week later.

Yah, a typo. It's .GPX, not .zip. Here's the correct link to the GPX file. Everything should be in there.

Just as well. After a test ride yesterday, it turned out one of the new roads turned into a snowmobile trail. Great for an trail bike, not so much for a big GS. This morning, we uploaded a new version with all test-ridden, street-bike-rideable roads.

Fixed. It's correct on the MOV rides page as well.

Greetings,

Can this be driven by a 2wd truck, like the trans-mass-trail can be? I'm bikeless at the moment and still need some adventure.

So, I finally got my ural and she's broke in. We want to take a trip up the puppy dog trail.

I downloaded the 2010PDR.gpx file, but I'm not sure what to do with it?

I have a garmin GPS60CSx. Do I use the POI Loader from garmin or something else?

If you guys have a link to a howto or something, I'll do read that.

Thanks...

Rode the southern 50 miles of this route today. It was really nice. Not too challenging which is good, you can just relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

I did it with just a printout of the route sheet taped to my tank, no GPS. There are a lot of turns but wasn't too hard to follow.
