I'm sorry but you must call into the AltRider office (they close at 5:30 pacific time) and register/pay beforehand. Registration is technically closed but we can fit in a few more people to join us on the adventure!

Maybe I'll see some of you guys riding around this weekend. I'm heading to our camp in Snow Shoe and will probably run over towards Hyner View to see a friend.

If your route takes you guys into Renovo, they have some ATV event going on Saturday that has them riding in town and to the northwest I believe.

I'll be on my F800GS Trophy with a hi viz jacket somewhere in the woods hopefully.

Excellent weekend.

First time for me taking the Elefant off road since picking it up in December - I and my family had a blast (even with the Amish Chicken incident).

Pictures to follow.

Had a total blast this weekend, AltRider did a great job planning the event.

I'm hooked now and look forward to more off-roading in my life! If anyone in the NYC area does dual-sport rides on a regular basis, let me know!

1st overlook - hardest part of the day and not even an "optional route" was the mudbog-fest getting to the overlook. The lower flat section was DEEP clay mud from the rains the night before. I didn't fall, my brother did, my wife did not.




Brother's bike at the overlook before Option 1 - note the mud


Waiting at the sharp downhill turn on "Option 1" which wasn't really that hard of a section, but we had NEW offroaders, new to their bikes in the group. no worries- scenic group wasn't racing anything, not even the clock!


Lunch parking...


Panoramic 360 degree photo of lunch break - left side of photo wraps from the right - strange looking people moved during stiching



Stop along the 2nd half of the main route at an overlook to smack around the damn GPS - not following the route, trying to reroute me the shortest way to the next waypoint on the GPX route...damn thing.


Guiseppe and I after the ride on Saturday. He rode his stock tire shod Multistrada with the Scenic group - didn't drop it once during the whole ride. I had to get the generational photo


DINNER for Saturday night.


In front of the Cave on Sunday before heading home L-R - brothers F650GS (twin), my Elefant 900, Wife's XT225 (chicken killer)


We only did option 1 and 7 - if anyone has video from option 7 I would love to get a copy. My Liquid Ego did not have a charge (dumbass me) and I missed out on video and stills all day :(

Looks like a great time. I wasn't far from this on Saturday riding myself. Sunday on the way home from camp I passed a few dirty GS's in Centre Hall.
