Can the guys who are coming up meet at the Grove, the place we hold the event instead of my place? 9AM good time?

The grove at 9 will be cool. Balsey I'm driving my truck in with the bike on the back. I don't think I have enough tire left for riding in.

Thanks for guiding the ride today David. I had the best ride I've had in a while. There were some crazy climbs and lots of rocks. Here are some highlights.

Dave,

Excellent route today.

I'm beat up. A word of advice for anyone doing the off road ride.
Don't show up with anything less than knobbies. I did todays route on Mefo explorers. Bad idea on my part, the rocks were relentless
I was not hooking up at all.

This route is completely different from the last 2 years so be prepared.

Balsey and Flatworks, always a good time riding with you guys.

Check out this map of the ride. There is a rogue waypoint throwing off the info but you get the point. Click on the tab above the map. Then you hit the play button you can follow our ride.

From the looks of the off road route, I think I had better plan on bringing the Ulysses and sticking with the big bikes. I just ain't ready to be playing on terrain like that quite yet.

Wicked sat. recon

Fantastic Day ! Great route Dave,keep it coming. I was whooped.For anyone planning on their 1st or 4th Smokin Rock ride,come prepared! (not to scare ya, there's always a helping hand) The only thing that's annual is the Good time, the loop is new.I can't say for the road ride,but I'm sure the other half of the Grim Bros has something up his sleeve too! I'll try to post my pics later.

Off road route.

Just to update the offroad ride section of the rally this year. Ii's going to be nasty. Much worse then any other years. It'll be loads of fun though. I can always break it up if needed.
