There will be at least two different group rides. One will be primarily pavement, and if there is any dirt at all it will be easy.

I will leading a ride that will include more significant dirt, but it will not be a hardcore dirt ride. There will be big bikes involved and I can't predict the off pavement skills of the group. I anticipate some hunting roads with shallow water crossing, and some relatively easy mud. The two roads in the videos below may or may not be included in my ride.

dirt road 1
dirt road 2

These are not difficult on an Adventure bike, but might be pretty challenging on a FZ6. May want to pick the pavement ride.
