    Any weekend in June is good for me. What is the bike of choice for this ride? I have a choice of a 1200 GS, a 650 Dakar, or a DRZ.

    I've done it on a Versys, an XT250 and a 690 Enduro. Out of your choices I'd go with the DRZ. It's pretty much all gravel

    I have given it some thought and have decided to not do a GRGR2019 this spring. I am going to take some time and maybe do something in the fall. I feel that the ride has fallen to a rut and it needs something new.

    Do it before labor day and I should be able to make it, labor day weekend would be perfect.

    I'd like to come play. But I do have a few plans this year. If yinz figure out a date maybe I can work in a weekend or week to be in the area.
