G650X is fine...may not make it over the rocks in the Hero Section but I have never seen your bike in person.....I have the roll chart and I will have a GPS. We should leave at 8:30 so we don't die of heat.

Make sure everyone is registered for the road. DEP checks and checks often. Don't mess up the only legal place in CT by violating the rules.
Stick to the NETRA Loop. Other stuff is not legal. This trail is open by the State and an agreement with NETRA. Join NETRA ( NETRA.org) and purchase a rote sheet for $2.

Agree 100%..If you don't have a plate then don't ride with us. I have the trail/route sheet and I even dropped some $$ on a roller. The loop is long enough that towards the end you will be happy that we stuck to the marked trails.

I am planning on riding Sunday. I'll be coming from R.I on my bike and shooting for a 7:45 arrival,wondering about difficulty level because I have limited experience and will be riding on stock tires (deathwings )
(tried to order new tires but can not get them in time)

Look at the videos on this thread and you should be able to get a rough idea of what to expect.

Pachaug Roll Chart in PDF

Here's a Pachaug Roll Chart that I made. Its not exact and may have some errors, so use at your own risk. Just look for the RED Netra arrows on the trees that mark the way, although some trails are not marked.

Pachaug Roll Chart

The roll chart may not be entirely correct and may contain errors, ride with a buddy and ride safe. Start/Finish is the Parking Lot on Spaulding Road and Down Road, Plainfield CT. Food and Gas available at mile 45. Total ride is approximately 60 miles. Entrance to Hero Section is in Pachuag State Forest on Ekonk Hill Road, Voluntown CT. Any errors or suggestions please email me at jbunceiii@gmail.com.

Thanks again John!!

My KTM odometer has a broken button so I can't reset mileage. I am going to need someone to help with the chart this Sunday so hopefully one of you guys has a odometer. How many guys are in for the ride?
