    I need to go over and check but there are two shelters on B loop. Both have electricity so we could cook in there. Workman wants to bring his RV(yeah he is a BMW guy). We will probably take an electric site. Wouldn't push anyone out that wanted one though.

    There are two resteraunts on each end of LBL. Also gas stations. I would say they are about 10-15 minutes from either entrance.
    On a side note I have two other tents if someone needs to borrow one.

    It's looking good, fellas! I am confident we can claim all 12 sites in Loop B, and I'll call Energy Lake and ask them to hold that loop for us. We can work out who goes where later, just know there is already one electric site claimed.

    I'm really looking forward to this. I know there will be a wide variety of riding skills attending and really hope there will be a lot of new DS and ADV riders taking advantage of everything LBL has to offer. If you know someone who is new to non-pavement riding, this is a fantastic opportunity to expose them to a light offroad weekend.

    And don't forget about Turkey Bay. The challenges there for ADV bikes are unlimited. New riders on little bikes will learn tons in a short time. And remember, if your bike is not street legal, this is your only option at LBL.

    Things are rolling, LET'S RIDE!

    Oh and by the way, count me in! Not sure if I'll tent camp or not, we usually have our camper at Hillmans Ferry in north LBL so I may just commute from there. Depends on how much jackassery I get into!

    Supposed to be nice this weekend, but I don't know if I'll get out. Having some carb issues still (might have them sorted finally, haven't had a chance to test it yet), and I have to paint a big room this weekend too.

    No, they were too big or too small. I went back to the stock size jets, and it was acting weird (seemed lean, but also having weird idle issues where it kept revving up while sitting still, stuff like that). Long story short, I was sweeping the garage, and kicked up the plastic barrel that sits in between the top of the needle and the diaphragm spring.... yep, completely missed a part, I think that the needle was floating upward on it's own.

    It's back together, hope to test it soon. Might have to bump up to the next bigger needle, got it sitting on the counter ready to go in.

    What GPS did you get? I'm working on an overlay of the LBL map. Depending on your model, the GPS will show you on the actual LBL map which has all the roads. I have it on www.dualsportmaps.com now. You should be able to check it out if you zoom in to LBL.

    I havent tried the app yet. Remind me at the ride to take a look at it. Id be interested in getting it, but dont wanna drop $20 :eek1 without a little test run. If you have time, goto http://dualsportmaps.com/ zoom in on North LBL and see if my map overlay is an option. Should be on the right side in a pull down that says "map over lay available". Its called LBL North, I made it public. See what you think. I am going to do the south also.
