    yes, unless your name appears on the list of people who bounced a check on us before. (they know who they are)

    Who's turn is it to bring the bug spray?

    Black flies are out!

    I have a fresh sprayer of 100% deet. Cabellas stocks it. Tastes like shit, but works pretty well.

    Stop hoping. Follow your route sheet and pay attention to the arrows, and enjoy yourself. Because its a one time only route, BTR doesn't share the route.

    Fun ride. Glad i got to use a roll chart for the first time. Real easy to navigate, thanks for laying out a great course and to the bobs for having a chart holder set up for me. Didn't hurt to have my garmin running so I could get around some of the messy spots.

    On behalf of Northeast Dualsport Riders - a huge thanks going out to BTR for putting on an awesome BBA this year. Russ and Chris - so nice to meet you! And Tim - sorry you weren't able to ride with us but thank you for helping make the event great for all of us. Some memorable stuff - the nice rutted greasy dual track at the beginning of the route, having a bear cub run across the road in front of our pack, being dive bombed by a Pileated woodpecker, that AMAZING antique m/c museum - WOW, Savoy State Forest - Yeehaw, and one heck of a great dinner at the end of the day.

    Hope everyone enjoying today's route will have an equally awesome time. Looking forward to next year's run!

    Thanks BTR for a great ride!!!
    Just entering that field makes my blood pressure drop and puts a smile on my face. Beautiful route.

    Apologies to the traffic jam I caused trying to psych and muscle my heavy Vstrom with street tires through that giant mud hole!
    And thanks misters for helping me pick it up!!
