Based on last year.... lots of gravel so hopefully you know how your bike does on gravel. I'll most likely take my SM but with dirt wheels on it.

Sent from my phone because it's easier.

Usually a good mix of gravel. Ural would be better to haul your gear on.

In the attached, you can see the bourbon bottle and the freezer bag holding the beer...as the Boy Scouts say; "Be Prepared!"

Hauling gear is one thing I'm trying to figure out. Sleeping bag takes up the whole area on top of my box. I can wear a back pack but the only place to put my tent gets in the way. Might try to find a smaller 1-2 person tent which would help or get a earlier start on the pannier racks I planned to make over the winter.

2013 Hoosier National Forest Ride Oct. 26-27

Any motels near campsite? I don't have a tent and camping has little appeal to me(read wimp). Although hanging out around a campfire exchanging riding stories with beverage is a blast.

Anyone else thinking of moteling it? I assume cabins all booked?

EDIT

Never mind. Tents be cheap.

We have a group staying at the Holiday inn at Tell City.. There is also a Ramada inn next door and a Mexican place to eat.... Its about 10-15 easy miles away from the campground which is booked..

No way, there would have to be a thousand tents to fill it up
