Bring your streetbikes too!!!

I'm headed up either Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Gotta stay to instruct with Bostonmoto Monday, and while I'm at it, I might just stay and ride with fishtail on Tuesday. Mini Moto vacation, WOOT!

From there we will turn east (left for the directionally challenged) and take a different entry road directly to 'our' lots. For those riding the Trail Ride, the Southern Loop is scheduled for Saturday this year with the Northern Loop on Sunday.
I will see you bright and early Sunday morning (the old, fat guy handing out donuts and bagels).


Bruce


thanks for the info Bruce, but will we be camping in the same place we did last year down below the bath house??

and can pre registered riders get in early like in the past?

Sadly,I will not be in attendance this year.

I've committed myself to a five race series in D-3 mx and will be headed to Frozen Ocean the weekend of the 8th@9th.

I'm sure Bruce will check back in here, but in the meantime:
Yes, and yes...

I don't think that we have as active a 'cheer leading squad' for the Classic. The Classic mostly depends upon 'word of mouth' advertising, in truth, if it were to grow much bigger it would probably be a problem to manage. The CFF Office does send out written and electronic reminders to past entrants. To some extent, at least at the MVTR level, it is presumed (right or wrong) that 'everyone' knows about it.
I do know that when I first joined MVTR (only a decade ago, seems like forever), I was asked to help out with something called 'The Classic', I had not heard all that much about it, probably because in MVTR if you do a job and don't screw it up - it becomes your job for life, so many people had been successfully managing 'their' job (portion of the Classic), for so long, that it did not seem to need much discussion. I showed up, looked around and said "Where did this all come from?". (How's that for a run-on sentence?)
I do not for a moment mean to imply that those people are not working hard or that the event 'runs itself' as that is very much not the case, rather, people have worked together on it for so long that they know what needs to be done and who they have called before to get it done. There was a concerted effort, a few years back to insure that new blood was incorporated into running the event, at least in part because many of us are not 'spring chickens' and we wanted the knowledge base to carry on beyond those of us who might become 'past due'. I do not include myself in the above to say that I do much (more as an example of being old(er)) because I truly don't, everyone else works on it all winter while I sit on a boat in the warm sunshine, then I come back and hand out donuts before Sunday's ride.

Bruce


There is indeed a lot of 'noise' and enthusiasm for the BBR and well there should be as it is a great ride as well. Perhaps being earlier on the calender, riders are excited for the 'first' big ride of the season. I really enjoyed it back when it was 'only' a one day event, no doubt it is even better now. Unfortunately, I have gotten fat and lazy, combined with other stuff on the schedule, I just haven't gotten there for a while.

Also, most trail bike discussion typically takes place on the nedirtbikes forum. I have not been keeping up there but that is where I always go just before a big event for up to date info.

Trust me, plenty of effort and excitement over the turkey run. Will be another great event just as it has been for the past 32 years

looks like i need to respoke my rear wheel. besides the usual preperation i do for the trail ride this year. this ride puts a lot of wear and tear on a trail bike so take the time to check things over before you go.
