This my 3rd year going to this event. I am on a big Strom and would not recommend doing the dirt ride. I've seen pictures and have heard the stories of the hero sections, and the seen the damage and shape some of the bikes come back in. I like riding dirt on the Vee. Last year my bike was down and had a KLR and wished I had my Vee last year, the roads were great last year. From the twisties to the dirt section in the middle of a field. Then they went to the quarry which I missed last year. I hope we do it this year I would be interested in seeing it. Is it the 29th yet?
