    Thanks for signing up. Been using a Garmin Montana 600 with a powered cradel for years. Takes a beating and keeps on tracking. Lots of people are using an Android phone with no plan and some navigation app.
    There's a GPS thread in Mapping and Navigation

    If you're with a group, not everyone needs a GPS. Like Roll Chart rides, one person usually ends up leading...

    A Kyocera Duraforce Pro and the free OsmAnd app is pretty hard to beat from a versatility perspective...

    Thank you that a good bit og info. Ill be riding alone unless I can hook up with someone there. When I said GPX I meant the bike in the video you posted, the person recording was on GPX brand motorcycle (possibly TSE250?). I assumed that was you in the video.

    That's Mike. I think he picked it up late last year. If you allowed us to share your email when you registered I'll be sending out on. I am in the video but you mostly see Jeff

    I am trying to decide on whether to ride the Saturday duel sport on my CRF250L or just go the traditional turkey run on my KDX220r can anyone that has done these chime in and let me know some of the differences of the days?

    :kboom If only. I was almost booted from the club last year when I announced the BBA was going away from Roll Charts.
    The Triple trail bosses are more comfortable with roll charts...

    What will the Saturday DS ride consist of? I’ll be doing the TR on Sunday. Did I see somewhere that the DS ride said no 2t bikes? Is it more of an ADV ride?

    Disregard the 2t restriction. That's carried over from the BBA only weekend. The BBA has historically been for 4t bikes but since we'll have a bunch of 2t's on property, it's kind of a moot point.

    Saturdays DS ride is routed by the Triple trail bosses so it should be good for the Triple crowd.

    Unfortunately, the food truck we were hoping to use, can't make it.
    Folks should plan on being self sufficient for the weekend.
    Wish we could use the local fire department like we did last year but we, and they, do not want to risk exposure.

    We hope to able to offer food and beer again next year.
