Fun stuff.

I assume full gear, and do we need the offroad reg in addition to our regular plates? (still have to get that for the Honda)
If you liked the TMT, then I think you will like this ride as well.

No Mass ORV reg required for this event.

Most people ride this event in "adventure gear" such as textile motorcycle jackets and pants, both with soft armor. A minority ride with enduro or moto-X style rigid knee & chest protectors. So either way is good.

Well, I just got off the phone with The AMA, and it seems they forgot to put our Adventure Ride on the event calendar for May. So please pass the word to anyone who you think might wonder if the event is still on.

Navigation?

I'll join too - Never done one of these, but I have a new bike coming in a few days and want to ride a few of these types of events to get to know what I can do with her. I'll probably stay in a motel in Lee, since my camp kit is in AZ.

Where do I get those route holders and how do you mount them?

Thanks for hosting the event and for the cause too.

-P

EDIT: Ok I see I am to PM about the holder.

If you can't get a BZR one, you can get commercially available ones (Moose and others) from shops that handle dirt bikes. Those are about $25 bucks. Hose clamp to handlebars. "Rollchart holder". Or "one of those things that goes on your handlebars to hold an enduro route sheet" would work, too. The BZR ones are the super farkle of route sheet holders and cost about 3 times as much. (I have two.)

Show up with scissors and scotch tape

Also, as this turned out to be a loooonnnggg route strip (as it incorporates Hero Sections and Bypasses), don't make too much of an overlap or white space when splicing columns. And initially, roll it pretty tight. Or else it will be too big to fit in your route sheet holder.

(BTW, and contradcting the above, experienced riders often run a strip of tape lengthwise down the back of the entire strip, to make it more tear resistant if it should get wet.)

April 6 - BBA route scout

viverrid, Rusty Rocket, madrivermaz and I did a route pre-ride yesterday to check mileage and confirm that the hero sections were passable. Ended up doing 140+ miles and didn't cover the whole route! There is still more to pre-ride work to be done in the coming weeks and a few decisions on final routing ... but I can tell you Vince has laid out one hell of an ADV route for the BBA.

I was pretty stoked that Vince rode his GS with us yesterday. Chilly but a beautiful day for an ADV ride in the Berkshires. When we met up with Vince he was with one of his dear friends.



More dear friends?



I rode my berg because I knew Rusty Rocket and I would be scouting the hero sections. Glad I did because at one point we both had to lift my bike out of an Irene caused wash out that was 6 feet deep.



Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Thanks - I sent an email to Mr Sadowski
