Pucky Huddle Breakfast Run 2016 #4 Well let's do it again! I've picked September 17th and 18th as that is when the MTRA has their ride weekend and their campground is open. For those that ain't ever done a PHBR before, here's the rundown. It's 250 plus miles per day. The course is as much gravel and poorly maintained roads as I could find. Lots of two track logging roads, and not much pavement. For the more adventurous, there are some of my famous optional Big Boy sections. It's all GS and KLR friendly. But a small bike and/or good rider would be advised on the BB sections. I'll change the tracks up a little this year, and Saturday breakfast will be at Koy's Kitchen in Bunker. (But the ride will still be called Pucky Huddle Breakfast Run, because it just sounds better) We'll start and end both days at Bixby MO. You can camp at the Midwest Trail Rider Association's (MTRA) club grounds near by on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, they have flush toilets and a shower, water and an RV dump station, plenty of room for big rigs and level spots for tents, large campfire pit, BBQ grill, and two covered shelters if it rains. There is safe parking for trucks, trailers and tents. They have over 600 acres for off road riding also. I think they charge $10 for non-members and $5 for members per day for camping/parking or something like that, so join up, save some $$ and help support their club! You can't camp anywhere with showers for less. > http://www.ridemtra.com/vtra-riding-area.html < Or if you want to stay in a motel there's the Miner's Inn Motel in Viburnum MO.. Watch this first post for updates and tracks. Here's the tracks. I probably made some mistakes, deal with it! So the Sat. and Sun. tracks are the main tracks. If you stay on them even a noobie or a big GS can make them, maybe not a noobie on a big GS though! It's all public gravel roads, to the best of my knowledge, and I have ridden most of it within the last 6 months, things change, roads get closed and water crossings wash out, heavy rain may raise water level too. I have no controls over that, this is just a suggested course, you're on your own here, don't blame me. BTW pay no attention to "road closed, bridge out" sign by the church at Hobo RD., you can make it, I crossed it last week on my GS. The short cuts (SC) are easy ways the cut some miles off for slow riders. There are plenty of other places to short cut too, look at a map. Now those big boy (BB) sections .............. well they are stuff that I've ridden at some point in my long life, but I may not have ridden them in years, they may be washed out, they may be overgrown, they may be closed, they may be bought up and private now, I have no idea. We'll see when we get there, all I can say is they still show up on the map and at one time they where rideable. Use your own good judgment here. I'll be riding them, it for no other reason, just to see if I can. The gas stops are marked as waypoints, some are off the course a little, but the ones on the course are at the most 125 miles apart, off course 70 miles apart max. Plenty of places to eat, some of my favorites are marked. Have fun, look me up at the camp and introduce yourself.
