    Guess I'll keep Mudaura an EBR company.
    If this one is even close to as good as last years it's not to be missed!

    That was me!!!! I passed out about 250 of those things last weekend. It's a cheap way of advertising our ride.

    So...is this dual sport like renfro or baby burr (really an enduro) or for big adv bikes (more gravel and fire roads)?

    No not a DUAL SPORT ride, ADVENTUIRE RIDE :deal . I've rode the Baby Bur and the Renfro Valley dual sports and I help lay out the Show Me 200 and this ain't nuttin like them.
    Copied and pasted from the thread's first post: > "The course is as much gravel and poorly maintained roads as I could find. Lots of two track logging roads, and not much pavement. It's all GS and KLR friendly" :thumbup
    It's 100% on ROADS. I originally laid it out on a F800GS, and I'm old and slow! :nod

    If you want to do the OPTIONAL big boy sections then there may be some challenges for a big bike with a less than average rider. But my wife has ridden them all on a WR250F, and she's only a little younger than me. (But she looks much younger:getiton)

    The tracks will take you right down the main easy course, you won't be accidentally routed onto a big boy section.

    And for you non-locals, Missouri is rocky so a worn out tire will work fine.


    So, Hukamosh you're from near Cin and have rode the Renfro, do you know Paul Jordan?

    Thank you for the clarification...not my cup of tea at the moment but life changes fast.
    I am from Cincy, have ridden Renfro but do not know Paul Jordan. Who is he?
    I'm usually pressed for time so when I get a chance to get in the woods it's drive down Saturday morning, ride and boogie home for chores...plus I'm a hermit.

    So when I was in Indiana at the Vintage track night somebody left a card on my bike talking about this event, thank you! I honestly haven't done any off road riding in my life but hell, last couple of years looked fun, I'm really going to try and make it this year!

    Edit: I just read above that it isnt actually an off-road ride, even better! Haha.

    Routes are very doable on a big bike.........couple of creek crossings with solid bottoms but if the water is deep????

    Campsites reservations are not available for our weekend.......too late in the season

    Camp host said it would be first come first served and that we would probably have the place to ourselves

    Plenty of campground for an army........there will be plenty of campsites and hot water

    Clifty Falls state park.

    It's a good time of year to camp------------as all the regular campers are done for the year.
    They've put their boats up------their motorcycles are in storage at the Hawg shop.....
    Kids are in school and we'll have the place to ourselves.

    I'm in! Hope to make the full event, but might need to join midway through on Saturday. Fall camping is the best, really like how this event is later in the year.

    I'm in! I'll probably just wuss out and haul the WR250R in the back of the truck. Should be coming down on Friday night.

    Just found this thread. I was getting worried. It's on the calendar, fingers crossed. Looking forward to that nice cool (don't say cold!) riding weather.
