    The last two versions have been adequate, and I wouldn't want to ruin my perfect attendance status.
    I'm sure we can find inappropriate subject matter to discuss around the nightly fire.
    And ... it might be quiet enough to sleep, without all of the wheelers rolling around. :lol3

    is any sort of off -road registration required to ride the adventure / dualsport loops or will a street plate suffice?

    The easy/big bike loop is only dirt roads and street...so no OHRV permit required. Any of the harder guided rides will most likely need one.

    If I am involved in a ride, OHRV is definitely needed! Small bikes rule! O'Doyles drool!

    This is a great event, I've done it all three previous years. Even with the crappy weather last year I still had a good time. I rode over 300 miles of awesome dual sport routes that weekend:) Totally legit campgrounds the BBQ dinner was delicious, campfireing is always a good time. Looking forward to it again!

    Well, since I'm stuck here for another year, I might as well attend this mostly adequate event. Looking forward to a small fire, bland food, warm beer, boring roads and bad times.

    Don't forget about the dull company and tedious conversations around that small fire.

    Maybe we need to rename this event to: North East Adequate Rally

    This. The first part. Y'all can keep those adequate bikes. I'll be busy trying to wrap my fancy one around every tree this year.
