    The 2 strok comment in the OP is in regards to the BBA not the Triple B Turkey or DS rides.

    I signed up for just Saturday, but have since decided to ride Sunday too. I haven't found an option to change my registration, any tips? Or just register separately for Sunday?

    and i had to go blow out my elbow. i'll see what i can do to get brazen13 to go ride on her own.

    and i'll whip up camp deliciousness. and drink beer.

    cause im good at that.

    just for perspective i think this is pretty much the only event on the northeast coming to ya this fall.

    Okay... interested, but coming from PA and it's a bit of a ride to get there and back. If we plan to ride Sunday, does the weekend camping fee include Sunday night? Is there a time we have to be cleared out on Sunday or Monday? And this is a long shot, but any recommendations for a place with good free Wifi to "work remote" on Friday?

    Forgive my ignorance. For the BBB Turkey run on Sunday:
    Are bikes required to be plated?

    I know MA requires OHV registration.

    Are riders required to have a motorcycle license?

    I see that they need a roll chart, but I'm not sure if the other bike and rider requirements apply. I'm unfamiliar with riding in the Berkshires, but it seems most trails on private and public land cross public streets.

    I've run a few hare scrambles (poorly), so if you could suggest a good YouTube video that would give me an idea of the skills needed, I'd appreciate it. I don't want to get myself or the kids in over our heads if it is open to off-road only bikes.

    Thank you

    Plated, insured and motorcycle endorsed license is required.

    We've been out riding and clearing for the past three weekends, this is the first time we were able to cover some miles without having to stop every 100 yards or less

    The first segment is one of the harder Hero section located on the camp property. If you can do this West Loop, you're going to love Sundays Dual Sport route

    The second, short, segment is in October Mt and is recorded in the opposite way it will be run. I'll way-point the gully as an optional Hero IV off the Hero III in October Mt.

    The last Segment is the aforementioned Hero III in October Mt. but recorded in the opposite direction you'll be routed. This is the same hero section as last year with the toothpick traction logs across the trail, but without the 1.5' of water covering them.

    Hmmmm. The XR650L or my new Tenere 700 with Anakee Wilds? Not looking for single track riding, just a fun weekend.

    Uh, both of course!!!
    And Fun = Single Track
    I'll gladly but the 700 through the paces if you'd like...:wings

    Although the BBA main routes don't travel single track, they do travel sustained Hero II. This is typical and should be nothing new to past participants.

    There are enough trails on site to self evaluate and help give you an idea of what to expect out on the ride.

    All BBA sections have or will be pre-ridden on a 950 and 1090
    It'll be a couple weekends till we get a 950 on the DS route. The hardest section has a bypass but everything else is in the 650 size wheelhouse.

    If you send Saturdays route with ease, the DS route is a good next step up into what the Berks has to offer.
