Cheers,
I will be fine tuning mine and posting here when done. Both rides are a compilation of previous posted routes, including the best paved routes with linking forest roads and gravel.

+1 The adventure crowd is not one I've ever needed to worry about. All those years of doing Romney with people charging their phones in the little green building confirmed what I already knew. I don't recall anyone ever reporting a problem, and I'm sure I would have heard about it. People who do what we do, don't steal, or show any other disrespect of person or property. It's one of the many things to love about being a part of the adventure community.

If this is on Saturday, I'd love to join up (assuming it hasn't been downpouring). I get a little iffy on anything muddy... modest skill and currently don't have a ton of tread/the right tire for that.

Rides:
2008 V-Strom 1000
2006 Kawasaki Nomad 1600 (w/ sidecar for the boy)

I hate to hear about all that snow. But remember that nobody brings snow to the event! Rain I can handle

I am officially OUT for this rally. My Mom is experiencing serious health issues and, well, priorities are what they are. Gotta stick around and play grown-up for a while.

Hope I can make the next one! If you're in, around, or passing through Indy, give me a scream!
