Count me in! I just did the 2012 fall trail ride in oct, on my daughters KLX 140 & had a blast. Can't wait to hit the trail on the 450 EXC in April.

I know a couple riders from the Jackson Area that will be attending Loretta's. Any more of you out there planning on attending?
I'm about 100 miles N.E. of Memphis (only about 30 miles from Loretta Lynns) so if you do move to the memphis area, perhaps we could get some VERY important motorcycle riding done. The 2012 fall trail ride was my first time riding Loretta Lynns but, it was a first class event in every way & being so close to it, I'll never miss it again!

Wow you lucky dog. Guessing that would put you pretty close (~1-1.5hr Drive) to LBL. I have some pretty good loops around Turkey Bay OHV Park on the GPS. In the Fall when we come down we will be spending some time there the week after LL.

The boyz down there also say they want to take me over to West Point to run the GNCC route they ran this past year's national enduro on.... Gonna be a buzy 2 week vacation.with alot of riding planned....

Hey do you guys know about the LBL 200?
It's usually the weekend of September 11th.
You need a tagged bike to run it......awesome ride.
Not as off-roady as LL but have never once heard a complaint about it.
WHen people start chatting that the registration forms are "live" don't wait......it's always a sell-out

I didn't see one up yet either? So I fired off an email to one of their members so Soon as I know I'll post up the link.

I trailered my KTM down last fall and blew it up the first day there. Fortunately my local riding buddies had a brand new 2011 400 with 39 miles on it that he let me ride. 1000 mile trip just to blow up a bike was pretty bad. Won't make that mistake this year . I'll be bringing along a back up Just In case!

We always set up camp along the river. Not sure what the camping arrangements are gonna work out to be we have about 6 families in our group but hey the more the marrier

Good idea. This event is a blast & I'm surprised so few have expressed interest. I hope to never miss it again.

Work Currently has us living in eastern Pennsylvania. Originally from the Somerville, Boliver Tn area. Most of the Boyz I ride with in TN are from the Jackson area. Dad passed last year, Moms still down there so we head down at least twice a year always predicated around the Spring or Fall Trail rides at Loretta's.

I think Ride Too Little hit the nail on the head, Loretta Lynns is NOT very big bike friendly. Even a big bore single can be a hand full on the special single track sections. They hold Grand National Cross Country events there.

It is an awesome off road event. It has been a few years since I've ridden there, but there is some great trails in them thar hills. I highly recommend it for anyone with a dirt bike, and Dual Sporters that want a challenge.
