Basically I am wanting to do the ride on my G650x, and therefor don't want to deal with Mt. Misery, Baby Head, etc....
It only uses a tiny part of the "loop". It is a completely different route. I did it on my DR650 last year. It was fun and I was surprised how much dirt road exists out that way.

Great. Thanks for the info guys. Hopefully the turnout for the DS ride will be good.

I can't make it this year. I'm going to the Berkshire TrailRiders work party in Tolland SF, Saturday morn. Plus we are putting the finishing touches on the route for the 2-day Nat'l Adventure ride happening on the 18th and 19th. Wish I was going. I would do the dualsport loop instead of the turkey run just for the variety, having ridden the "loop" so many times before.

Are you thinking about doing the 2 day?

Some good action from this riders video of the event.






At the 16:00 to 17:00 minute mark rider gets yelled at for not giving faster guy a clean pass.
