    Camping is $5 per night, primitive, but there is a bathhouse with showers, and a few water spigots around.

    Come on down to Bankhead National Forest, in the Free State of Winston!
    Winston County, Alabama.
    A simple Google search will find the campground at Brushy Lake.

    Rides will be a mix of dirt and pavement, with the option of the Multi Use trail, and some dead ends that get a bit tricky.

    I plan to start doing some scouting rides soon, I'll post the info here. It will be short notice, and most likely on weekdays. Anybody that wants to tag along will be welcome.

    Count me in!

    I'm planning on post poning my TAT trip until June anyways. I want to make sure the passes in Colorado and up near Crater Lake are open.

    I also might be selling my WR250R for a KTM 500EXC or a 690 Enduro R. So if anyone is interested in a WR250R let me know!

    Also if anyone is interested in taking a TAT trip aftewards with me! :clap

    I'm planning to bring the BIG grill again this year. 7' of grill space, and two side burners for frying/boiling. Everybody is welcome to use it.

    Thanks John!
    Counting down the days.
    New this year, we've added a pure street ride to the event, it will take place on Saturday while the rest of us are eating dirt. Details for the street ride can be found on bamarides.com.
    We're having a Sausage Fest Friday night....Anybody that's interested, bring your favorite sausage, chips, etc and we'll grill them up.
