Is anyone here riding this? I want to go and ride the "Hard course" but the guy I was going with bailed. I would be heading down from Marysville if I could find a riding partner. Dont really want to do it solo.

Ask Tom (event organizer) at the event to pair you up with a rider according to your riding skills.

Mention where you live and you might meet someone from your area to ride with in the future.

Avoid riding with a pack...dust...waiting, all of that.

One or two riding buds is a good thing on this event..plenty of others passing by if you need help.


I will be riding the Adventure route on a KTM 950.

Go and camp at the fairgrounds early Friday night with extra beer.
With the right attitude, you'll have absolutely no trouble at all finding a riding partner right there at the event. Just find a guy, any guy, and say..."wanna ride tomorrow?' ...and problem solved

As it turns out, I am NOT riding it this year. Again.

Otherwise, I'd be your guy. Hard course, all day long.

I will be there riding the A route both days, but I already have a group of 4 and that's pushing the group limit for me. Like said above there are always people looking for a riding partner that's how this group started.

I know you have mad skills on that 1KStrom, but unless you have a smaller more agile dirtbike to ride the A course, I think this is what your intention is:

..Adventure route (B course) right!?

First year I went, I knew no one. Slept in an enclosed utility trailer which was offered by one of the generous posters above. Met people based on that and rode with them. I went back the next year with a buddy and this year I'm going alone. It's one of those events where if you show up alone, you'll meet a great group of people. If you show up with friends, you'll make more. I have no reservations going without a buddy or two because you can't help but to find someone to ride with.

This year I'm going, but not yet sure I'm even riding (getting over an injury and need a doctor to give me the thumbs up or my wife is going to take the keys to the bike and hide them). Even if I can't ride the bike, I'm going, it's that much fun.

Despite Tom's instruction, I rode the 'C' route by myself before. Always someone behind you to help if you had a problem. Large groups at every stop to talk to.

Actually like riding by myself at this event (sorry DiggerD). You can stay out of the dust and ride your own pace. Would not do it on the other courses or if I didn't know the area.

Sunday's C course was spectacular last year.

I'm looking forward to doing the Black Dog this year. I'll be doing the easiest route at the slowest pace but I'll be out there trying not to get in the way of the other riders.

I'll be riding the A course both days. So far I'll be solo unless I tag along with someone. You are welcome to tag along with me, assuming I won't slow you down much.
