The single track was the hardest I'd ever ridden! Epic!! I didn't get any pictures of it because I was trying not to die, but the video above from last year that Laura0117 posted is awesome!

On the second day, I was hurting in muscles I didn't know I had. I only have some pictures of the mellower stuff and some sightseeing we did. I'll definitely be back for more next year! The Family Riders put on a great event!

Ag, didya wander over to the Civil War earthworks down by the river at the campground? It is where the Battle of Broxton Bridge was fought. There is a recreation of a section of the bridge, and you can still make out it's path through the many channels.

Notice the grave surrounded by old iron fence in the first section each day, just after passing the skeet stations?

Big Fun!

I have been down for the Enduro every year, but this was the first year of doing the dual sport ride. Lot's of fun, more relaxed than racing, weather could not have been better, Awesome weekend!

Thanks to the Family Riders and BB Plantation!!!!

Nope, 2 axle Work and Play toy hauler, with a white F250.

We started with two Husabergs (a 450 and my 570) and a KTM 500exc. We had another friend that didn't show up, but we took his Husky 510. Good thing, my friend's Husaberg 450 died 20 miles in on Saturday morning, he got towed back to the truck, and rode the Husky for the rest of the weekend.

Some video from the seat of a TE610 Husky. Was a bit tight for the big boy, but good trails. I think someone sold me some KTM brakes. Those trails get real interesting when the rear brake fades away. Thanks for the ride.

Hate I missed this. Have done the enduro before, but sounds like the trail ride is fun too. Might have to try it out next year if the land owners allow it again!

Thanks Again!!!! DRZ's are rock solid dependable! I had one for 7 years before selling it for the Husaberg 570, still wondering if that was the right thing to do....
