    Is the daily route a loop from the start or is it out, camp, return?

    I'm so excited to get the 990 out for the BBA. I will be thinking about Vince when I ride for sure.

    probably after 3pm Friday. (we'll nail it down as the event gets closer and we get volunteers) Camping is included in your entry.

    It's a private collection that he only opens by appointment, usually to groups

    BTW: riders will be able to purchase, for a very reasonable price, extra dinners at the firehouse Saturday night (so those attending with the riders can join in)

    One very big request for people attending the 2016 BBA.

    We need to be very mindful of the people living on Burt Hill Rd. (the road the start area is on)
    Please ride/drive slow and quiet. We have to get people in and out on that road, Fri nite, Sat morn, Sat nite, Sun morn, Sun nite. Plus ferrying to the dinner on Sat nite and back. That amounts to what they see for normal traffic in probably 3 months.

    Please consider the locals.

    thanks.

    Mutual respect is what keeps our riding areas open - NDR philosophy!
