    AMA allows non members to participate in recreational events at the club's discretion. We don't require AMA membership for this event, but we will, at a mudhole, help a stuck AMA member before a non member.:photogHave your card ready.

    ask the guy with the broken starter gear on his GS, that we dragged, by hand, up a rocky woods road and then towed it with an XR650, till it started.

    I would say yeah.

    Awesome it's back - I finally got all the water out of my DR650 after playing U-boat commander in that deep stream at the start of the ride a couple years ago. I think it was right after the end of Sheets Road off RT. 57. Anyone need advice on drying out after a full submersion - happy to help! Amazing where that water sits. Even still - great day - looking forward to doing it again.

    Well, I found out that the online registration, like we've done in the past, costs a certain amount for each day you have it open, so we will be waiting for a while longer before we open it. We also would like to work out a couple more details, like what's for dinner and stuff that goes along with the price for entry before posting the cost and opening online registration.

    Scheduled for Saturday is a visit to Jim Hollerich's dirtbike museum,(donations accepted, but not mandatory) like we had in 2013.
