Have talked, hmmm, I don't know his handle here, it's nightblues59 on SS, UralScott on  FB and I know he is a member here and that's who I talked into leading our dual sport ride. It sounds interesting and I am conflicted on which ride I'll go on this year, street or dual-sport... Come on out, we always have a good time...

Well, we had 3 Urals and a Bpepr show up. Weather must have been too nice or the 30% chance of rain scared folks off but a young lady who has owned this bike since new rode the 100 miles up from Atlanta some of it on the slab...so it must not have been that bad...just saying...

JTNWEvo, that is your old 650 engine, still running wonderfully. All that had to be done to her this weekend was a brake adjustment.
Moved to a new location closer to the highway for some of our street riding bretheren but close enough to the stuff most of you like still. Nightblues59 and I did part of the epic ride he had planned. My Retro really is not the right bike for what was planned. Next year I'll ride Myrtle up, she is.

Here is the ride on one of the many forest roads in the area. Yes, the Retro got dirty...

and here is a little less gnarly dirt viewed from the back of my Retro (testing new cameras, failed to get the front running that time)

Really wish more folks turned up, we had plenty of fun to go around. Jan (Mrs Bural) won a helmet and was not even there... Basically both rallies (Howdy Summer and GROPE) had the "regulars" show up and you know, sometimes that is just fine but the saying "the more the merrier" may have been cooler. The primitive camping area was unused but those who came filled up the powered/watered sights right by the creek that runs through the campground. And yes, nightblues59 was there, so there was a snake...I Have a feeling there will be pictures...
