Sorry, but still can't access the 2010 GPX files or the new link .
Fixed. It's correct on the MOV rides page as well.
Got it. Looks interesting, can't wait to ride it this summer.
Can this be driven by a 2wd truck, like the trans-mass-trail can be? I'm bikeless at the moment and still need some adventure.
I might give this a try this weekend on a ural!
So, I finally got my ural and she's broke in. We want to take a trip up the puppy dog trail.
I downloaded the 2010PDR.gpx file, but I'm not sure what to do with it?
I have a garmin GPS60CSx. Do I use the POI Loader from garmin or something else?
If you guys have a link to a howto or something, I'll do read that.
nevermind guys, I figured it out.
I'll let ya'll know how the route turns out...
Rode the southern 50 miles of this route today. It was really nice. Not too challenging which is good, you can just relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
I did it with just a printout of the route sheet taped to my tank, no GPS. There are a lot of turns but wasn't too hard to follow.
Thanks to the BMW Motorcycle Owners of Vermont for some really good tracks. My wife and I rode the whole puppy dog route through Vermont this past July, and had a great time. We took about a week to get through the route from north to south. We even met some fellow adventure riders from very close to where we live, it is a small world.
Has anybody ridden this after the August floods? I need to travel through the area and would love to do it.
Check out the CroMag thread. People who know about the PDR were mentioning it there.
hey all, about to venture out on this trail AKA Puppy Dog.
I dont have an adventure bike at this moment, but have a very capable KTM 200 XCW. Anyone tackle this trail on a bike like mine?
i dont see why i would not be able to use this bike.
anyone do this on a bike like mine?
On a 2 stroke. Where are you going to get your pre mixed fuel ? Where are you going to carry all your gear ? I cant imagine you would be very comfortable, but i guess it could be done. I would bring extra spark plugs and keep it on the pipe.
thank you mr demon. your comments seem quite obvious for any 2stroker.
but i am really curious. has anyone done this trail with a 2stroke (its street legal).
i know this is an adventure forum for BIG bikes and i am sure you all go cool places on your BIG adventure bikes, but seriously, give a man some info.
dusty tires signing off
this route was laid out for big bmws so you will have no problems riding it
good to know
i am getting mixed reviews on doing this trail
some people say it might as well be concrete because the dirt is just so packed in like a road.
have you done this route? worth doing?
I've done the route twice. Once on a big BMW, the other on a smaller one. You will have no problem, as it's not very challenging. Many of the roads are gravel and some can be loose, depending on recent weather. Last year, the Puppy Dog ride was held in the rain. It wasn't too bad until we hit a stretch of clay-like roads that became very slippery. I imagine that when there's been no rain, they are pretty hard packed. I was on the big BMW without knobbies and struggled. Really, you should have no problem. The ride is rural and very scenic, passing through lots of cool farms, towns, etc. But it wasn't designed to be a 'crossers delight. Have fun. And by the way, the 'official' Puppy Dog ride is the first weekend in June so you'd have LOTS of company on the road then. All bikes are welcome and there's been plenty in the 250cc range.
Turned onto west rd. or west dr. It is right off of RT12 after Randolph. Came around a corner and found a guy on a bmw in the ditch. Stopped and helped him and his rider companions get him out. He seemed alright and so did his bike. Not sure if your out here on the adv rider forum, but I hope everything is well.
