AMA membership is not required to participate in the Bucky.

HOWEVER - we are an AMA club (Charter #2 - est. in 1924) and we very strongly encourage AMA membership. This event would not exist without the AMA, and I'm sure the other clubs would tell you the same thing about their events.

I've put almost 4000 miles on one of my orange bikes this year so far...I may use the other orange bike for the Bucky.

Why? That bike should pass sound check.

I think I am in for this event though.
Worry not, my friend. As of about 9PM this evening, my headlight - as well as all the rest of my lights - are in perfect working order!

Now, I just need a dB reader. and a tach. and an assistant.

I really doubt my bike is over the limit, but I just want to double check before heading all the way there.

Anyone know what the engine test RPM is for a 620 KTM? Or where I can find it?

Nevermind. As always, google is the answer.

mailed my application ...

re-locating from Dallas to Madison (Middleton) next month and am interested in finding dual-sport rides (also interested in figuring out how to fit 4 bikes and 2 cars in a 2 car garage, but that's another problem).

Here's a couple other dual sport rides for you to check out...

Build an addition onto your garage, that's what we did

Adding to ffchicks's list - there are a few more organized dual sport events that are not actually in Wisconsin, but still not too far away. Very fun trail, lots of single-track.

I'm with 2whlrcr on this one. We've got two cars that battle the elements year round, but nine bikes cuddled all cozy in a little one car garage. Just think of how many more you can add!

Keep an eye on the thread link below and let us know when you arrive and we can have a little get together on a day that works out for you. The majority of us who gather at these m&gs also do the Bucky and other DS rides, so you can make some buddies before the events.
