Caveman Riders First DS camping ride!!!!!

Caveman riders is hosting a dual sport ride Oct 25-26 with camping Saturday night. This is not a serious DS ride, just gravel roads and back roads so a V storm or GS1200 can join in the fun!!!

Strom is gone but well remembered. May the Tenere do as well as it did.

This looks like fun Luke....I am seriously interested in doing this. The seat on the DR really sucks and I still have the small gas tank, I'd more than likely ride the Strom. Hopefully some of the other Ohio Troopers will show interest. I saw that Swingset is going.....that is a start.

First day is only about 13o miles. There are also plenty of gas stations nearby according HC. But bring whatever you want as long as it can do gravel.

As long as it isn't a big wet soggy mess...I am 100% going, my buddy TA might be coming too. When is the "latest" that I can pay for this event? I can't pack camping crap on the DR "no rack" and like I said.....the seat is a torture rack. I would rather ride it though....we will see. Can a police edition Harley Roadking do these roads?

I'd say it totally depends on the rider. If they're competent on gravel then it should be no problem. Heck I've ridden worse on a V-max!

Well.....I can't make it this weekend. Weather looks kinda like poo on Saturday, and I really don't wanna miss the OSU/Penn St football game. I thought about just doing the Sunday ride, but I'm gonna meet up with some other Troopers for a different ride instead.

Maybe next year!!!!!!!!

For all I know it may get delayed for a week or altered in some way. I'll try to keep you advised of changes as I become aware of them. As of right now there has been no official changes to the ride.
