1. 2 day sounds good. Less mileage on Sunday, that's the day everybody needs to get home too. I would guess most arrive Friday evening.

2. Don't care as long as we can have a campfire.

3. yes and yes.

4. Please don't have it on the same weekend as the Whitehorse Press open house. They have conflicted for the past 4-5 years.

Last event, NETRA wouldn't allow an ad because we weren't NETRA sanctioned, but allowed an event in NJ on the same day to advertise.

I would promote it through every BMW dealership, get those who want to ride to faraway Starbucks on board. Seriously, I remember one of your rides where a bunch of guys from a BMW dealer (maybe Manhattan) didn't listen and tried a hero section. My biggest memory was the smell of fried clutches.

Just a thought here and you may have already considered it. You may not want TOO many riders. 300 or so riders going down those pleasant New England lanes might attract more attention than you want. Just my $.02.

It has always been on the weekend before Memorial Day weekend. That's the target date again.

BBA 2012 was a great event, if I remember correctly it was aproximately 150 miles with all the hero sections.

How come most Turkey Runs and Dual Sport events have about a 100 miles or less for the route?? Is 100 miles a mind set that people are stuck in?? Why not make them 200 miles long, like the 4 State Dual Sport back in 2005??

What a "HardCore" You must've been trained by Mike Stone.

It is all about the trails, roads, and moving average. I rode a 650 mile day of dirt roads with no issues, but a 96 mile enduro almost killed me.

The 4 State was/is our BBA.
It's best to keep our Turkey Run around 100 miles or less, there have been years we are still sweeping when the sun is going down.
