Set aside June 10-11-12 for this years "Bring Your Own Bullshit" ADV Rally.


It's casual, any damn bike that runs will do,

You will need to bring your own stories and entertain each other.


FARM RULZ will apply! KMAC YOYO.








Marlinton WVa is the location chosen.

It is in the heart of some of the best riding that West Virginia has to offer.

Rooms are reasonable, and camping will be available during this weekend only.

Singles $53.95 + tax
Dble $63.95 + tax


Camping $20.00 per night per tent.


Room reservations, are still available. as far as camping... call to reserve a tent site.

For campers there will not be any shower facilities, but I will provide two porta potties.

I've stayed there happily on three occasions. Sport-touring.net has had events there a couple times. There is a small gas and beer store next door and the rooms were clean.

Don't recognize him...


But I do recognize the 80,000 lb triaxle coal truck:D

His brakes haven't worked (well) since 1984.

Marlinton - History
 
http://i183.photobucket.com/albums/x...s/M-ton-04.jpg

South from Marlinton on Rt 219 to Lewisburg is worth the ride.
In June 2010 I acquired a lot of respect for the local riders heading north.

Someone, please step up for calling in reservations for...


Sunday Brunch at the Hutte in Helvetia.
