Thumb Will try...

I went to one CIC event a few years ago. It was a lot of fun. I'll try to make this one. My work schedule could foul things up, but I'll give it a go.

Man this looks like an awesome time, if only I had an off road capable bike. Hunter is only 1/2 hour from me too.

camping, scheduling and sign-up?

Hello everyone,

I've attended this event in the past but on a road bike. This year I'd like to bring the WR and a few friends.

Do we need to sign up?
What times do things commence on Friday and/or Saturday?
Is there training and/or guided tours or are we just set loose on the mountain Saturday morning?
It seems like camping is allowed--will we have access to running water and/or showers?

Thanks, I'm looking forward to this.

-morgan

I took my (German) mother there for Octoberfest 8 or 10 years ago. She was not impressed with it. Don't know if its become more authentic since then, but based on what it was I would not go just for Oktoberfest

Rip Van Winkle 300

Seems like it's kind of like a T-O-R game but with a 300 mile/8 hour ride thrown in. As far as the GS skills park, I recall some Ducati's running it in years past.

Don't forget Das Boot for Oktoberfest.
