    Its a nice mix of open sand roads, fields, weaving through tight pulp wood forests, and single track. Its a fun ride and was terrain that I had never ridden before so that was a cool experience

    Your DRZ will be fine. Google Broxton Bridge Enduro, several vids on youtube from the 2012 enduro. Ran basically the same trails last time I rode the DS. Lots of good single track! Has the potential to be really, REALLY cold :eek1
    But seeing as how you are from Michigan you may ride it in a tee shirt. :D

    I haven't done it before, but I am signed up for the DS ride this year. I've been riding in AZ for the past 10 years, so this will be a whole new experience for me.
    I'll be on a WR450F (with handguards). Really looking forward to it!

    You are in for a great time! I have been to all of the previous enduros there and the 2 day dual sport in Jan 2013. The trails are great, the campground and people are nice, Thanks to the Landowners to invite us down!

    Just a few weeks away y'all! Got a new property in the mix, with virgin trail and real altitude changes! 2 days of fun, 125 full hook-up campsites {bring your friends and stay on one site, just dont invade other sites!} Bath house, laundromat and food available on site. Will have my projector for Saturday night movies, and there MAY be live bluegrass...

    Street legal enduro-ish bikes encouraged, spark arrestor required, bark busters and boots will help you remain "comfortable".

    Not a friendly ride for the big bikes with fairings/bags. While a lot of the single track is fairly wide and forgiving, there are sections that will shred shiny tupperware!

    I've been a few times and it's been great every year, a little too tight for the GRN KLR 650 in some sections but even a Triumph Tiger 800 made it through one time (neither are recommended). The DR-Zs seem to really be in their element and the smaller than that bikes can do it at pretty high speed. BTW, a real altitude change here in the SC Lowcountry = 15ft, DO NOT REJET for it. I'll be there again this year, maybe riding sweep.

    Only 900 feet here at my place, so no need to rejet. It will be nice to get some riding in, the weather has been a little un-hospitable for the last month around here.

    More sand:clap

    I watched couple of videos on youtube and it looks great. Does anyone know if the entry fee includes camping or just includes ride and dinner?

    How about breakfast and lunch? Is it also BYOB? What is everyone else doing?

    I don't believe it includes the camping fees and if I recollect food was from a food truck. Good hamburger. BYOB. and gasoline. Lunch was midway on Saturday. fun times!

    Correct, camping fees are not included. I want to say they are still charging $25/night for 30 amp sites. Best thing is you can put as many people on your site as you want, as long as you arent encroaching on neighboring sites. The sites are rather spacious, so bring some friends and split the bill! Bath house is included with camping.

    Food truck chow for sure, havent heard whether Broxton will be opening up the Food Shack.

    Lunch on the ride is included with entry each day.

    How necessary is the route sheet holder? Are GPS tracks available? Would rather use what I already have. Really looking forward to it.
