    Saturday night BBQ (by Chef Chazamoto) pulled pork, chicken, coleslaw and few other side dishes.

    The good folks at BMW of Manhattan Motorcycles would foot the bill.

    I see you posted some possible rides. Here's what I was thinking of doing Saturday.

    From the camp ground take FR-14 north to US-33.
    East on US-33 to CR-31. Go east(right) on CR-31.
    CR-31 changes to CR-7 in Pendleton Co.
    CR-7 to left on CR-33/3 to US-33.
    East(right) on US-33 to south(right) on CR-6.
    CR-6 to the intersection of CR-33/4 and FR-112.

    If the restaurant at the corner of CR-33/4 and US-33 is still open we will do lunch there. I will check this in April.

    After lunch we go back to FR-112 and make a stop at Spruce Knob.
    From Spruce Knob we take FR-112 west to FS-1 and back to the camp ground with a stop at the Sinks Of Gandy.

    About 70 miles.

    Here's a Garmin .gdb file of the route.

    With lunch, photo ops, and the stops at Spruce Knob and the Sinks, it will probably be around a 5 hour loop.

    This route should be OK on a big bike.

    I'm planning to get there Wednesday morning again, so maybe I'll scout it in the afternoon.
