    Hey guys new to the forum but looking for some people to ride with. I have a KTM 530 EXCR with knobbies and a supermoto setup. I live in Madison and am looking for mainly to ride dirt with or hit the twisties. I'd say I'm a moderately proficient dirt rider and love single and double track. I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place.

    I see the LBL200 opened registration at 0800 this morning and sold out within a couple of hours.

    Anti-Corona virus alert!

    Hi All,

    Some of you out there know me and that i try to do something for our fraternity every year. Whether that's an large ADV bike weekend somewhere or a dualsport weekend of dirt and laughter or even as was the case in 2018, a "Scatter Rally" which had the unfortunate luck to run on one of the wettest August weekends in recent memory...:imaposer

    Well, i had hoped to follow up on that last year, 2019, with an even better event but unfortunately 2019 turned out to be a really crappy year which included but was not limited to the loss of 3 parents and a major heart surgery for yours truly...:(. So, to say my 2019 ADV expoits were minimal would be an overstatement!

    Anyway, life moves on and my passion for giving back is not diminished! So, in-spite of or maybe to spite the fact that we're all apparently going to die shortly from a shortage of loo rolls i thought i'd put myself out there once more to be used, abused and generally ridiculed and offer to organise/lead a weekend away somewhere in June or July in WI, MN or the UP.

    It can be a dualsport or large ADV ride, it can be for 2 or 3 days we can camp or motel. The only thing it must have is plenty of gravel as a minimum!:muutt

    So, tell Corvid-19 to kiss your antiseptically clean butt and, if you're remotely interested, let me know, D/S or ADV... I usually keep rides down 6-8 riders otherwise it ends up being a lesson in herding cats :-). Also, in the remote chance that there's more than a little interest in riding d/s then i do have another plan lurking in the back of my brain which could accomodate more people!

    Anyway, answers on an electronic postcard please (no polls here?) D/S or not D/S that is the question...:pope

    Cheers and stay safe, MK.

    ...And please keep that if you wash it for more than 20 seconds it's not called washing anymore...:csm :augie

    I like both! I’m interested. I was thinking about exploring the UP more but would also get a kick out of revisiting the trails during the scatter rally.
    Sorry to hear about your 2019 btw. Good luck out there.

    Honestly, I said D/S first, but I'd definitely be open to either a D/S or Big Bike event!

    What about both? I'm happy to do them, i have a cool idea for a D/S mega weekend in the NW of the State and a fun, large ADV weekend ride up to the UP and a very, very cool camping spot!

    As in previous years if i get a few more interested parties, i'll set up a dedicated thread so that this thread doesn't get swamped.

    Cheers, MK.

    I'll say the D/S ride, assuming we're not talking single track. Not sure my TE610 qualifies as a "big bike" :thumb

    I'll keep an eye out over the next couple months as things develop. Thanks for leading the charge on this!
