    Sorry i missed this earlier, the Rever guys do their 1/2 price Premium annual rate deal in the spring for 1 week.

    Your best bet is to sign up for their news letter at the bottom of their page https://www.rever.co/ or follow them on Facebook for that timing.

    I was really surprised on the American Classics Eastern states version that you diverted from Vermont-100 at Killington and sent me over Rte 4 to Rutland, then down Rte 7 to Bennington. While scenic in foliage season (two weeks out of the year) both 4 and 7 are mostly straight, heavily traveled...and Rutland is pretty much the armpit of Vermont. Had you remained on 100 the rider would have ten miles of straight pavement followed by miles of sweeping curves through some of the most scenic land in the entire state. Even your Northern New England map shows 4 and 7 as not worth mentioning. Just to refresh my memory I rode it yesterday and found it absolutely meh. Why was that route chosen instead of remaining on 100 down to Wilmington, then over 9 to Bennington? Your other maps show that as a much better route.

    Rutland! oy. You can go down 100 until 9, bang a right and flow over to Bennington. (and stop at Henry's meat for a ribeye for the camp fire later). And you could alway catch the dirt roads through the national forest and even of you don't really know them, just head west and south and you'll get close.

    In case you have not heard:
    Backcountry.com

    https://coloradosun.com/2019/10/31/...its-namesake-is-it-bullying-or-just-business/

    https://gearjunkie.com/backcountry-boycott-lawsuits

    Also came after the non-profit Backcountry Discovery Routes too! :devildog

    ...then they backtracked

    https://www.snewsnet.com/gear/backcountry-ceo-breaks-silence-over-trademark-blowup

    This created some serious stress for the BDR group; is the name going to change and all that was built around the idea of getting motos into the BACKCOUNTRY.

    Backcountry.com f'd up, then retreated...
    but this brings up the idea, support those who support you!

    Remember that the next time you are buying some moto camping gear. Buy from an ADV vendor or your local gear shop!
    NOT!!!

    In case you are wondering who is backcountry.com - part of a huge company.

    I'm getting so sick of dealing with people in business. This is ridiculous, and yet is allowed to be an issue and held against others for financial gain. It is ethically wrong to drag other though the mud like this.
