RI Thrill-n-Chill Weekend

Hey Guys, The Rhody Rovers Motorcycle Club is working hard to bring back the Thrill-n-Chill Dual Sport and Big Bike ADV ride. Our Turkey Run for the same weekend is also taking shape. For the Dual Sports and ADV riders we are upto about 150 miles for Sunday. This ride will consist of approx. 60/40 street and dirt roads. The dirt road sections will have some optional "here sections". I have riden the mileage thus far on a Honda 650; however, a large GS style of bike could ride all of it. There is nothing tight, the tougher areas are all still abandoned dirt two track roads. I will get a flyer up asap, but hear is some other info;

I have ridden through some of the trails doing the routing and there's some great scenic views, real twisty tar sections and great trails out there!

NETRA for sure. I can't remember exactly but I would think AMA is not required.

Netra membership only (unless something has changed). Don't miss it! Short trail ride on Saturday, Steak dinner at the firehouse next door, camp out Sat night, main ride on Sunday after breakfast at the firehouse.
Nice trails, excellent ride.

Turkey Run looks like this:

How much "lighter" are the Saturday rides? I can't make Sunday, but would like to do the Saturday turkey run, if it's worth the 3-4 hour drive (each way)

I wouldn't drive 3-4 hours each way for a 10 mile loop that can only be done maybe 3 times in the amount of time your allowed to be out there but that's me. I'm not putting it down at all ,cause it's a great loop, it's just a long way to drive for such a short trail ride.
