    I am planning on tenting, however if I get lazy and truck my bike, is it still 40 bux or do i get charged RV pricing? (I wouldnt need to tent next to the truck.)

    Sure, there's plenty of room to throw the tent down at Fowler...you'd just have to eat at Godspeed.

    That would be fine and no you would just pay the tenting fee. Thanks for signing up!

    Is this a rally raid type event that will utilize road books?

    No road book. The organizers help you download the tracks onto your GPS and you make your own way with a few others. Or you can join a group heading out if not so inclined.
    Kissell provides a sweep group for support if needed.

    Hello everyone, what a crazy last couple of months! From April where sales were totally shut down to the busiest/record setting month for us in May...just been crazy in a good way!! Anyway, SB 2020 is still on! As of 6/1, there's 3 spots remaining at Godspeed and then we'll roll with SB South. Thank you ADVer for getting back to patek_ambassador! No road books, gps trax provided for all 4 rides. We will provide mid and final sweeps with technical support.

    Not a big deal AT ALL( I’m NOT complaining) but why is it more $ to stay at Godspeed when all the action seems to be at SB?... just curious.

    Good question Eddie and the answer is: The amenities and setting are definitely more upscale at Godspeed (and costs WAY more to rent). Also, Godspeed will remain the main center of activities. The band Friday night, Jocelin Snow presenting, rider meetings, check-in etc. The only activity we have going on at Fowler is the band on Saturday night. Yes the Fowler property is adjacent to the supercross track, but both Godspeed and Fowler attendees will have to ride their bikes over to it if they want to participate. The idea behind Fowler was to come up with a solution for Godspeed's 100 person limit. Hope that helps!

    Great afternoon for some Soggy Bottom recon work. “A” riders, make sure you take the work around when the puddle exit isn’t in sight lol!

    If you thought Soggy Bottom Motofest 2019 was great....wait till you get a load of 2020! Laying down more GPS trax today, more water, more hill climbs, more ruts and more mud! You have 5 weeks to bump your endurance up...get to it! Thank you to our aftersales manager Megan Fiedor for assisting on today's route planning!
