Dual Sport Ride

OK Boy's and Girl's
Labor Day weekend Dual Sport ride. Sat, Sun, Monday
Grayson, KY
We will try to put this ride in the 5 - 7 range on my comfort scale.
Occasional exploration and roosting is expected
staying at the Comfort Inn

1 - I always ride the speed limit or less and don't like getting my tires dirty
2 - I can do some gravel roads if it isn't too loose and we don't ride very fast
3 - Gravel is OK, but I only ride with street tires, so no mud or creek crossings
4 - I like gravel and run a 50/50 tire so I can handle 40 mph
5 - Gravel and mud is fun as long as we ride sensible and stop to see the sites.
6 - Gravel, mud, creek crossings are cool. No single track or high speed for me
7 - I run full knobbies, have off road experience. But I don't ride fast in the tight stuff
8 - Been riding dirt most my life. Love gravel, dirt, mud trails. But I'm an old fart that doesn't like hospitals
9 - I'm an ex racer that doesn't want to slow down unless I have too, but not as fast as I used to be.
10 - Get out of my way, I'm coming through.

Re: Dual Sport Ride

sounds like a lot of fun.
What is the specific agenda?
Do you trailer to Grayson or ride?

Re: Dual Sport Ride

So I'm not sure where I fit on your scale.

No provisions for "I ride full knobbies that I try to rip to shreds every ride. I am not the fastest, but I like to make questionable decisions."

We will be riding wheelies and roosting noobies tomorrow at Redbird SRA in Dugger, IN.

Bbrrraaaapppppp!

Pulling out in the AM with knobby tired bikes on a trailer.
Looking for twisties and gravel.
A few guys are going to Rush Off Road. About 5 miles from the motel.
