    I do have one question however, is it going to be cold and rainy in a month?

    Hopefully the weather will be nice.
    I was just saying that about the weather, based on the last 2 years. :evil

    Hopefully we get some rain before this ride. We rode the south loop from 2 years ago this last saturday. Man was it dusty.

    Will a bike (and rider) need to be street legal to participate in this year's event?

    We have had some young riders ride this event in the past. I can make a couple of phone calls to make sure its ok for you PJ, if that is what you are getting at??? I am just asuming.
    As far as bikes, there has been people in the past with dirtbikes who rode this event.

    It's exactly where I'm going with this, Aaron. My 14YO just moved up to a 125 and it's be fun to have him along if that would be acceptable.

    PJ, You should contact the NYM Club, this is their event & they do all the routing, marking & event day work. They will tell you directly if your son can ride or not, I would suggest calling Jeff Hixson, his # is on their website. Hope that helps.

    I called and talked to Jeff. Your son should be ok riding with a group of guys. You are more then welcome to join me and a couple of guys that are riding that day.


    It sounds like we are going to run the same route that we ran last year, but backwards. I will have to look to see if i have the GPS route from last year. When i find it, i will post it.

    I have the GPS route from the 2010 ride.

    Last year, we followed the 2010 route. Once we got past the "short loop", we were awfully lonely. I didn't see any poker run stops, course markers, or other riders.

    Had a great time and will go again this year. Just couldn't help but wonder if we were going the wrong way last year. An updated GPS route would be handy.

    I'll be with Damonster, his brother Ed (maybe) and his friend Josh (I guess he's our friend now :D).

    The more the merrier, so if we all want to meet at the starting point and ride together, I'm game.

    Jesse, I compared the 2010 route data that you sent me to what my GPS recorded as a track from 2010; on the southern loop they do not match up, so maybe that's what the discrepancy was.

    This is the route I recorded in 2010:

    Edit: Here is the route I rode on 05/05/2012

    Thanks. I'll compare the three and see the differences. The route I shared w/you is the route that was shared here in the forum for 2010. We didn't make the whole ride that year because of a wreck & breakdown (the massive hangover didn't help either), so I didn't know how accurate the route I had actually was. I don't believe I had my GPS for 2010 either.

    For 2011, word on the street was that the route would be the same, so I went with the 2010 route I had. Apparently, it was incorrect.

    Unless something else is announced, I'll steal your route and go with that.
