    Anybody know anything about this ride?
    https://www.facebook.com/events/2400582436892290/
    I'm interested in going but can't seem to find out much on the FB page because I can't post anything or respond to the one comment on the event page.
    Thanks!

    It's organized by the Twin Cities Adventure Riders. There may be more information on their Meetup page.

    Edit: Bultaco beat me to it.

    No, but I've ridden with Doug and Sherry many times. It'll be a fun ride.

    Meetup is not like Tinder. Lol. Lots of dual sport and other motorcycle groups use it. It's for organizing gatherings and events. Chicagoland dualsport riders is a popular group in our area.

    I hope they will accept me.

    Still waiting.
    Must be a pretty extensive background check.

    Are there GPS tracks for this kind of thing?
    I'm not a big fan of a dusty gravel train group ride.

    Still no word from them:dunno
    Bailing in this idea.
    Going to use my hall pass to go ride the dual sport up in Wabeno next weekend instead.

    Do you need a ticket? I can't make it to the Bw200 so my dual sport ticket is for sale.

    You might try to contact them through the Minnesota adv facebook page instead of meetup. They are pretty fast at responding to that page.

    I requested to join their Meetup page a few days ago and was approved yesterday. I did not get any notification (via email for example), that I was approved. Check again, you may have just missed it.

    Edited to add: I made plans to attend this ride, even making reservations at their hotel. I asked about tires and was told that my current tires would not be appropriate for the ride. I tried to get a little more information, but couldn't get anyone to respond, so I cancelled. Now I know why I prefer to ride alone.
