New to this so apologies if I am asking the obvious, however for this ride will a stock scrambler be sufficient? Not sure what terrain to expect

Yes, but tires may be the difference, especially if it has been wet leading up to the event.

here's a link to last years 1 day event. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...ight=berkshire

pay no attention to the guys stuck in the mud. They didn't choose the correct line. That wet spot was on an optional section and wasn't part of the main route, which could be nicely done on a Scrambler.

The pictures start on page 35.

In!!!

I missed the BBA last year but had a great time the year before. I'm pretty sure I will just ride the main route
on the 950 ADV this year.

The 2013 AMA Adventure Riding Series schedule is now up on the AMA website.

http://www.americanmotorcyclist.com/...eSchedule.aspx

And I will add that because the BBA is an AMA National, all participants must be current AMA members.

So please make sure your AMA membership is up to date.

On event day, we will have membership applications available for those that need them.
