    Aww man, doesn’t look like I’m going to have the entire field at FOwler Grove community center to myself and the airstream again this year! Seriously, I’m very happy that it will be at one location

    Dang. This is the same weekend as AMA Vintage days at Mid Ohio.

    I will add that these guys do a nice job. I have gone to the viewings for the NEBDR and the MABDR that they have held and they do a bang up job.

    Update: It's now confirmed that we've secured the BMW demo truck for Soggy Bottom Motofest! The truck will roll in on Thursday evening and demo rides will be offered all day Friday and Saturday.
    *note: the demo truck will be available for the general public as well as all SB Motofest attendees (negotiated with BMW).

    I'll be coming from the Port Jefferson area and I know a few guys heading out from Nassau and the Brooklyn areas.

    I'm thinking about doing this on the Ural. We (myself and a group of fellow Ural riders) have ridden NEBDR, Sproul, Bald Eagle and Moshannon before, but given the obvious width restrictions and lack of low gearing, we have to be a little more selective in trail choice.

    Are any of the tracks narrow enough to exclude a Ural?
    I'm thinking about the gates, bollards and "entrance boulders" in Bald Eagle specifically.
    Though we can get past some of the gates/obstacles intended to keep 4WD vehicles out, we can't fit past all.

    Just trying to get a feel for the trail choices.

    Soggy Bottom Update 5/30/21:

    Route planning well underway....spent the afternoon in the Bloody Skillet (we got a one day usage approval from the state) laying down some sweet tracks! We're currently at 150 registered riders with a hard cap of 200 (due to PA state agreement and caterer's max capacity). If you're thinking of attending, don't delay as we're trending at 10-15 registrations per week. Less than 2 months out!

    I’m glad to hear that you moved it, Godspeed knows nothing about off-road events and pulled the same crap with The Pa wilds event. Are all bikes welcome?

    is there room for a 40 ft. Fifth wheel?

    All signed up and can't wait to check PA. When do people usually show up Thursday or Friday morning?

    Most roll in Friday morning...but we do have a handful that have requested to throw down their tents on Thursday evening and that's not a problem
