It's just Dual Sport Events.

I think there are not that many that we need to divide them by state.

I am a web designer and developer but I don't think we need to make this that complicated.

Just my 2 cents.

cheers,

Is this something my DR650 would be able to handle? thanks.

Yes, probably. YMMV

(edit: I misread your post and thought it said DL650.)

Yes, you should be able to do it at your own pace, it was not that technical or steep, just get used to letting the faster little bikes pass by you.

Last year the course had some ATV tracks and then 1 or 2 loops of single track added for long or short course options. I did one loop and ended up at about 40 miles for the day. At mile 39 my arms, shoulders, and hands were sore and numb. I almost never encounter this any other ride I have done to date. I attribute this to the endless twisty stump dodging nature of the course last year. Only 250ft elevation change overall, but lots of tight turns in forest and clear cut sections kept my TE610 in 1st gear most of the time. If I could hit 2nd gear on a trail, it was only seconds before a sharp corner came up and had to downshift again. Add to that a relatively heavy bike to toss over every 40 feet and it gets to be some work. Most of the ORV and Forest land single track I have seen are much straighter runs with smaller sections of tight stuff, barring the double super secret stash trails.

I understand the course may be different this year, but I think the area is similar. I am taking my 450 this year (since I now have one).

Dual Duck run will be a 100 mile morning loop with another 40 or 50 mile loop after noon. There will be a poker hand draw for prizes after the ride. We'll have a BBQ set up and serve dogs at the lunch stop at the Bluegrass park. Big trailies can run the course; some sections will challenge them. I have ridden the course on my 990.
You won't pass a gas station on the 100 mile loop...

No camping available at Turtle Town kind of sucks.
