Very handsome. You don't look enthused though.

Good riding with everyone today. It was nice to see our crew out in full force. We might have to start our own club soon. Any name suggestions?

I was not enthused.. and that picture loaded much bigger than I ever wanted.. and now it has been quoted so cant delete it

The southern loop has at least a half dozen large trees down. There are work arounds for each of them.. but some serious tree removal needs to be done. I think the only clear section is the very last one that ends up near RT 49. 14 riders today.. now that is some fun

I just got back, unloaded the bike and am looking forward to a shower.
Fun ride today. It wasn't even that cold on my ride home..

It was a good time camping with the Misery Loves Company crowd too. Perfect weather for a November weekend!

Home safe & sound after the "chase the Ukrainian" ride back to PVD.

I had an absolute blast, pity there are so many trees down. I wish I could help, but I know nothing about dealing with downed trees. The go-rounds were fun!

All the pics

First stop, Beach Pond lot -- waiting for MATPOC


drewha lent me his Husky for two sections of the ride...here he is enjoying the comfort of the cow sheepskin on my DR350


I like this pic of MATPOC on his KTM SM



First woods stop, a lot of talking and peeing


mrt10x taking care of some trail debris, the first of many


One of many obstacles to be cleared or gone 'round ... I can't even remember which one this i
s


1HP on the trail!


a lot of this



tmlee stuck in the mud!


Which way is forward?!


MATPOC says FU tree, I'm going undah!


I don't this rider's online name, but I know his real name 'cos we have the same one! I'm convinced that orange gives ya a leg up.


mrt10x taking the left way 'round ... is this the better way?


Happy Veterans Day, mrt10x ... I guess the left go-roung wasn't the better way, eh?


Vexy on her W250F behind drewha on the Husky


I will follow this man through any mud puddle



p_funk ponders the way 'round the giant Christmas tree


Orange Crush in the woods


Big Bike Drop-o-Rama crew, new & improved with li'l bikes


HUGE thank-you to drewha.
I take baked goods orders ;)

Thanks for mrt10x for leading and carrying implements to deal with the downed trees. And thanks for MATPOC for riding back to PVD together. cheesebot was very happy that I arrived home in one piece.

I see how it goes.. you spend precious time and energy leading a huge ass group through the woods... you go out of your way to clear trail and make the world a safe and sane place.. and then someone posts a picture of you with your leg trapped under your bike while trying to cross a 4" log... very nice

Really enjoyed riding with the BBDOR crew yesterday. It certainly helped having the big crew out there to figure out the go-arounds, make sawdust, and guide everyone through. I apologize to anyone riding behind my four-smoke WR; just keeping the mosquitos at bay . It must have been tired though- about a half mile from my house it decided to lay down and take a nap on the trailer. Nice pics and videos, and thanks for the cookies!

A few pictures from the campout Saturday night. The guys hosting were very hospitable. They offered a meatball soup for dinner and an egg sandwich for breakfast. The soup was fantastic but I declined the sandwich because I wasn't feeling too well. The cider gave me a doozy of a headache. No matter, I eventually shrugged it off and had a great ride with the BBDoR crew. After Lester3 and I split off, we had fun fishing and riding around some back roads. No, we didn't have any luck, but it really wasn't about catching. All in all, it turned out to be an amazing weekend. Would do again.

Here's some pictures of the bikes. The variety of bikes was impressive.

Random Guzzi (not a camper), MR T's 1200, and mine


Classic Beemer with a Russian Sputnik sidecar, and a 2008 Triumph - 900cc.


Turtle Jim's shiny new GS and another classic Beemer


Loph's 950 Super Enduro


Nice shiny Goldwing with sidecar. The sidecar is an extra wide with a convertible top - room for 4.


This isn't even half the bikes - there were a lot. There was a shiny Harley, a new Concourse 1400 and MATPOK's Aprillia that also stick out as drool worthy bikes.

Here's a shot of the fire.

You left out the Xmass tree bike



Had to rum home Sunday morning to swap bikes, btw thanks for waiting! someone assured me that Sunday ride will be road bike friendly but once everyone showed up with knobies I knew that Tuono was not good enough. Fork seal been leakin for few weeks now but spirited ride home seems to have really finished it off
