    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. :clap

    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!:D

    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 :D

    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 :D

    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.
