Even though I can't make the ride, I'm curious as to what exactly "Do not bring your enduro bike" means. :biggrin

My Yamaha's all say ENDURO right on them. I've got a Harley Bagger that I can ride on dirt roads... But are you referring to newer, unregistered race bikes? Or are you saying that this is ADV bike only?

Sorry, but I'm a newb in the Dual sport thing. :shhh:
Valves are STILL for toilets!

It just would not be enjoyable on an enduro bike, bring a Dual Sport or Adventure Bike.

Previously the Tolland Fire Department has had breakfast available at the start. They will not be able to do it this year so please plan accordingly.
Also changing will be the provided Saturday night dinner. We will now have dinner at Tuckers in Sandisfield.

I road right past your start (on my 950 ADV) and wondered what was going on!
These are some of my often used roads... :thumbsup:

Looks like BTR did another great job. This event always seems to fall on the same dates as our annual trip to Deals Gap for The 2 Stroke Meet. Screw it, next year we are going to rearrange our schedule to fit this event in.
