    The RATDOG starts this coming Sat Sept 21 and a bunch of folks will be there. I will try to take some photos to share with you. It is about a 180 mile dual sport rally on a blind course with Jart roll charts to guide the way. Several of us from PDXGS
    were at the BULDOG ( A dual sport event about a month earlier)and did really well on F650 and 1150GS's and had a blast. Looking foward to this weekend.

    I'm taking off half the day today so I don't have to set up my tent in the dark. Should be a blast. The Oregon_DSR people are great to hang with, except Dave of course! Great weather is forcast, and good people are attending, so fun should be had by all. I'll bet the GS riders are the only ones camping off the bikes. Most the dualsport riders trailer thier bikes to the event. Kind of defeats the purpose of a DS, if you live near by. I can't see traveling 1000 miles on a 400 cc DS with camping gear if you can trailer, but REAL DS riders don't trailer. But, REAL DS bikes can ride more than the C course. Either way is good... I suppose.
