    Fantastic day for the ride. Other than the guy that was racing every one like it was a National Enduro, it was a great day. Another awesome job by the organizers. Next year we can drink beer together again.

    Great job on the Turkey run!! I’ve never see the Berkshires so dusty!! Had to stay up front or suffer! I’m thinking a few guys felt in over their heads in the last few miles. Lol! Giving us the whatfor on those bony hills towards the end was a nice touch! iirc, we would hit them early or mid ride during previous events.

    BBA Dual Sport today was great on the 790 Adventure R.....could have used about 20-30 more miles of that. We did miss a turn and snuck in some of the BBB single track after gas! Maybe next year BBB could have dual sport bail outs??

    GPS navigation is the way to go. The W 's on the route and arrows going in opposite directions for the Turkey Run were a little confusing at times though.

    Considering you guys didn’t post on the NETRA site or if you did it was only in the last couple weeks, it looked like your club had a good turn out! Do you guys have a rider count yet?

    That’s where the Rt sheet comes in handy. They had plenty of bypasses marked on the Rt sheet and trails were very well arrowed. Not sure how hard the bypasses were as we did everything but the ledges.

    Just want to say great job Dave.....and everyone else involved in bringing this event together for this weekend. The weather was a bit " crisp " in the mornings but overall made for an excellent weekend of riding all of what the Berkshires region has to offer. Hope everyone made it home safe and had a great weekend. Thanks again !!!!!

    Not sure if it was the same guy but someone blew by me and then roosted me right in my face 100 yards from the campground. I didn't see a finish flag waving but he must have won.

    Awesome event! Many thanks to the BTRA guys for putting this together. It surely put my 790R (and my body) through the ringer. It's rides like these that make you truly appreciate what these awesome machines we ride are capable of. Loved it!

    Sunday TripleB was great fun and challenging. I really liked the new trail in the pines. The road sections were nice to cool down and catch breath for the next sections. Once I got to the solar farm I was tired. I took a break and had a peanut butter sandwich which gave me just enough of a second wind to ride the homestretch. Ed
