    Wow.... 8.0... So many great friends, so many great memories.

    Eight years ago, around this time, me, @2fast4u , and @sandalscout started talking about how Land Between the Lakes was not getting the love it deserved from the Dual-Sport and ADV community. There were great ADV rallies popping up everywhere and we wanted to put something together to promote and showcase what LBL had to offer.

    So here we are eight years later - ADV@LBL.RIDE 8.0.

    As always, this is NOT a pay-to-play event. It's just a date, a place to gather, and an invitation to you, your friends, and anyone else to get together and ride /explore this Dual Sport and Adventure motorcycle playground. 170,000 acres, 400+ miles of gravel, dirt, and pavement, and a healthy helping of fun and friends.

    There's not much else to add. B. Y. O. E. (Bring Your Own Everything). We don't plan much, and pretty sure I don't want to change that. This gathering will take you back to the time when you just said to your friends "Hey, let's go riding" and enjoyed the magic when it happened.

    So back to the "plan" thing.... Where are we gathering? My first thought is Energy Lake again. But I don't want to miss a chance to ride the B-dubs so maybe Turkey Bay?

    Floor is open for discussion!!!! Potential 1st timers, we'll do our best to answer your questions. Searching ADV Rider for ADV@LBL will give you a good idea of what to expect. And don't be shy, if you show up Friday morning, you'll have a bunch of new best friends before the fire gets hot Friday night!

    Chat it up! LET'S GO RIDING!!!

    Rally round the citronella candle with a pocket full of friends. @richardhead84?

    I am down with what ever, but if turkey bay is open I say occupy the swamp.

    I may have my 200 back together by then. Or my new bike Blumpkin?

    You have been talked about at the last few. I see you have a big KY loop mapped out. Think you can get to Turkey bay for this one?
