Dual Sport 101 Route
This route that is suitable for those who desire to develop skills without the pressure to keep-up with the pack. We will discuss gps, trail etiquette, tire pressure, etc. before the ride starts. It will be a trail ride with frequent stops at new obstacles where we will discuss how to ride them. Obstacles such as deep sand, mud, ruts, tree roots, rocks, etc. The ride will be shorter due to the slower pace. Lunch stop will be at a spot different from the other routes. Men and women and all ages are invited. Sunday's route will be the standard Dual Sport route when you can opt-in or opt-out of the more challenging single-track sections.  NOTE: there are no roll charts for Saturday only, please ride with the group and/or utilize the GPS tracks.


Dual Sport Route 
Dual Sport is a type of motorcycle riding which is a mix of off road trails connected with the use of roads.  Trails are used with permission and/or permits through the USFS, County forests, and private landowners. Trails range from 2 track, gravel, minimal pavement (as little as we can), and single track sections that are optional- Saturday's route is usually about 130 miles and Sunday's route is usually about 80 miles (though miles and routes change often yearly). The motorcycles are street legal motorcycles that are fully off road capable.


Adventure Route
This is for 1090R, GS1200, GS800, V-Strom, Super Tenere, Tiger, KLR650 and similar larger bikes. The route involves plenty of 4wd roads miles to develop new skills plus sandy roads, gravel roads and very little asphalt. This ride will contain challenging hero type off-road sections based upon rider input from previous events. Saturday's route is usually ~150 miles and Sunday's route is usually ~100 miles.  Suitable off-road tires are required!
