Personally I like the "dual track" type routes. Those old roads that haven't seen one of those big grading machines for a decade or more but could still be passable with a stock modern Toyota FJ and a bit of skill...

As for the sticker debate I lean towards keeping it simple.. When, where, and no more than one font!

My half ass design...

I Like this design as well, seems to me that there are good options and what isn't used might be used next year

AtlasEXP and I put through a couple of tasty small bike routes this fall that I'd like to throw in the mix. Somewhere between 100 and 150 miles is a very good day for routes of this nature. We're talking 200 cc to about 500, if you're a good rider. Lighter is better. Soft-compound knobby tires and a well-sorted bike are a must on these runs. Your bike must be plated and street-legal. Headlight, brake light, horn, and a mirror are pretty much the minimum, along with registration and proof of insurance. Signals are not needed in VT, although I recommend them. Have your butt well-tuned. Two-strokes are welcome, as long as they can fuel on the road and have a 75+ mile range. This is not country for peanut tanks.

The standard big-bike dual-sport ride is still very much in my thoughts. As those who've attended the past two Rendezvous know, these are reasonably mellow but spirited runs over forest and town roads, with an emphasis on scenery over raw technical prowess. We try to avoid pavement. There will be no single-track, although there may be some two-track. Think KLR or GS 650 class (ish), although we had plenty of bikes in the liter-plus class this fall, as well as those as small as an XT225. I try to put together about 200 miles for Saturday, with a ride of about 100 miles for Sunday morning.

We've generally just posted tracks for the road bikers. Woj (inmate WAP) has been one of the faithful road riders and is coming back for a third session of abuse.

I'll go through the effort of developing and posting tracks for the two dual-sport rides if people feel it's necessary. I've put a lot of effort into the tracks in the past, only to find that people expected to play "follow the leader."

Tell me what you are thinking!

I really enjoy the "spirited dirt road touring runs" when you are talking 200 mile rides. I like the single track and knarly stuff but my wrists and body can't take it all day. ( mostly wrists)........3-4 hrs of hard core rocky river bed, and mud riding and I'm doing good ! ( and usually beat).
So for me, maybe a good touring day and some off road the next ? either way I am in

Only 96...and I'll likely be following you, or at least trying to keep up with your new ride.

Wow, nice racks!

You won't regret doing the seat. It makes a HUGE difference.

We'll try to work in Success Pond Road this time, and see if some of the roads up there meet your taste.

I like the design. Keep it on file for the Fall Rendezvous.
