    Dual Duck run will be a 100 mile morning loop with another 40 or 50 mile loop after noon. There will be a poker hand draw for prizes after the ride. We'll have a BBQ set up and serve dogs at the lunch stop at the Bluegrass park. Big trailies can run the course; some sections will challenge them. I have ridden the course on my 990.
    You won't pass a gas station on the 100 mile loop...

    Funny how there are no events or rallys in July. Don't people ride in July! I have that week off (Week of the 4th) and would be fun to travel to a ride or event outside of this area if anybody knows of any?

    I just looked at the dates for the events and they appear to all be advertisements for events in 2011. Are there any scheduled for 2012 yet?

    Heres a quiet little dual sport ride put on by the WVTRA. I have attended this little gem for the last couple of years.
    This is not Tom's 300 plus rider dual sport. Not to take anything away from the Black Dog, been there, done that, had a great time but the smaller rides are more to my liking.
    Clayton and company put on a steller event. The rides are great, beautiful scenery, and rumor has it that this years ride is going to be lots of single track!

    In reality? Or in my head? Corvallis . . .
    Fellow Inmates,

    It is my great misfortune to only attend one rally a year, yes for all the dumb reasons. However, the Black Dog approaches (http://www.blackdogdualsport.com/bd_events.htm), and I've finally reached farkle levels that will allow me to actually ride out to it.

    Anyone going? Anyone want to group up into an intimidating mass of tall skinny bikes? Oh, sorry, GS12s would be welcome too, of course.

    Having nothing to compare it too I can't say the B.D. is absolutely the best, but it certainly does NOT suck. As a total newb Dser I got just a little more experience than I wanted the first time, and again the second time. Perfect. Two different courses, A and B, friendly folks (assuming one does not tear up the grass in the campground, sorry Tom), and there's even a shop with a welding machine nearby in case one happens to rip off a foot-peg bracket. And of course prizes.

    Okay, so I'm looking forward to it a lot. You would too if your life was ruled by integral calculus.:puke1

    PEACE!!
