2014 Buffaloe 500 (IN)

Who's going to ride in the Buffaloe 500 hosted by Stoney Lonesome near Columbus, IN this year? It's coming up soon on Sep 13-14. I'm going to try riding the DS route this year with my plated CRF450X. The past two years I've ridden the ADV route on my KLR and WR250R and really enjoyed it both times. They put on a great event.

http://www.usdualsports.com/2012/07/...ual-sport.html

Does anyone have info about camping in the area? I believe SL allows riders to camp on their property over the weekend. Do they have showers and restrooms available or maybe only porta-pots and no showers? What about dedicated campgrounds nearby; does anyone have recommendations or good/bad info about the options?

I found this one online, Westward Ho! Campground.

Loading up both bikes and riding both days. Stoney does allow camping, and yes they have regular restrooms, no showers that I am aware of. Plenty of camping in the Nashville are also. They put on a really nice ride both days! Hopefully the weather is as good as it was last year.

I will be there on the kdx. The dual sport is really nice, some great single track. I have also done the adventure ride in the past, good, but not as good as the woods riding.

They used to have a set of showers on the back side of the building, not under ceiling other than the sky but enclosed, worked good.

I emailed the organizer the following:

"Hi,
Some buddies and I (from AdvRider) are thinking about coming down for your gravel road ride next weekend. Would you be so kind as to answer the following questions? I promise I'll share with my buddies so you don't get bugged to answer the same questions multiple times:

1) Are there showers available at the primitive campsite?
2) Do people need to preregister, or can we just show up and pay 6:30-8 am before the ride?
3) The website mentions that the money goes to "local charities". Can I ask what local charities are typically supported?

Thanks for taking the time to read my message, and for volunteering to help promote motorcycling."

He replied with:

"Showers are available first come first serve.You can sign up at the event. We donate to big brothers and big sisters of Bartholomew and Brown county and the fire and chear fund."

It'd really be nice if the DS and the national enduro were not on the exact same weekend, in the same state.
Bummer.

The local charities are the exact ones that get the marginally legal DS bikes in the group a weekend pass to ride in those two counties.

Not logic to question!

Don't let the short response sway you away like any club they have D-bags and good dudes. I raced there for years there are more good guys than D-bags, but they have them.

Thinking about saturday's DS ride on the 690Enduro. My only 2 concerns are fuel range and rollchart. I haven't had the time to put the extended tanks together yet so I am at about 120 miles (road) range. Will that be a problem?

Also, I don't know if I will have a roll chart by then. Is this required? I guess I can always fall back on the adv ride... but the ds sounds like fun
