Treeman just wants some peace of mind for his hard work and generosity.

We're all big boys n girls, and know if we fall down and go boom...it's on us.

Show up, sign, be careful, and have fun

Yes, that's all. If the rest of the world looked at life the way I do, their would no need for releases or attorneys But that is foolish thought in today's society

Lets assume these guys are alive for a moment - work with me here - this is a joke...

You have Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, and an attorney lined up against a wall,
You have a gun with only two bullets... what do you do for the good of mankind...






Of course you shoot the attorney twice to make damn sure....


OK now back to your regular program....

I'd love to come if this is an open invite. I may bring the camper but would need some help getting the bike there. The Jeep can pull one or the other.

I have to agree, the bike will be the primary objective. And I do have a tent so either way, I'm in.

It has been my experience that bikes are not truely essential for a good time at these events. The real experience is Friday and Saturday night where the ADV spirit comes out. Some one releases the Kraken and there ya go...

Why is it that no one can wait for Saturday night and the BIG party always seems to be on Friday... the night before the BIG Ride... by Saturday night there is no more booze or food (or energy) and we all have to run to the store for supplies...

And then there is the possibility of RAIN... you will wish you had a camper if it rains all weekend...

I am full this trip so no room for bike with me but someone else may be able to help...

Simple answer - buy a truck, put the bike in the back and pull camper.... you should have known! Its only money.

Treeman - I know of at least three big rigs coming so save us some room up where we were last time...

Looking forward to it.

Some were asking about big ride on Saturday... how long and how much dirt vs pavement... is it beasty friendly or would the KTMs be a better choice of ride.

Any info would be helpful...

If we do the Covered Bridge ride, which we will probably will, It is about 70%-75% dirt. I would say it is beast friendly as long as we do not have too much rain. There is some sand on that route which rain helps but there is also some heavy clay that gets pretty slick in wet conditions. There are plenty of ways to work around this so I think you will be fine on either one

Vic, I did this on my KTM450 last year. Lots of fun and some cool places to see.
