Its a nice mix of open sand roads, fields, weaving through tight pulp wood forests, and single track. Its a fun ride and was terrain that I had never ridden before so that was a cool experience

Your DRZ will be fine. Google Broxton Bridge Enduro, several vids on youtube from the 2012 enduro. Ran basically the same trails last time I rode the DS. Lots of good single track! Has the potential to be really, REALLY cold
But seeing as how you are from Michigan you may ride it in a tee shirt.

I haven't done it before, but I am signed up for the DS ride this year. I've been riding in AZ for the past 10 years, so this will be a whole new experience for me.
I'll be on a WR450F (with handguards). Really looking forward to it!

You are in for a great time! I have been to all of the previous enduros there and the 2 day dual sport in Jan 2013. The trails are great, the campground and people are nice, Thanks to the Landowners to invite us down!

I'm really looking forward to riding some dirt in January instead of hibernating in the house, should make the winter go by faster.

Just a few weeks away y'all! Got a new property in the mix, with virgin trail and real altitude changes! 2 days of fun, 125 full hook-up campsites {bring your friends and stay on one site, just dont invade other sites!} Bath house, laundromat and food available on site. Will have my projector for Saturday night movies, and there MAY be live bluegrass...

Street legal enduro-ish bikes encouraged, spark arrestor required, bark busters and boots will help you remain "comfortable".

Not a friendly ride for the big bikes with fairings/bags. While a lot of the single track is fairly wide and forgiving, there are sections that will shred shiny tupperware!

I've been a few times and it's been great every year, a little too tight for the GRN KLR 650 in some sections but even a Triumph Tiger 800 made it through one time (neither are recommended). The DR-Zs seem to really be in their element and the smaller than that bikes can do it at pretty high speed. BTW, a real altitude change here in the SC Lowcountry = 15ft, DO NOT REJET for it. I'll be there again this year, maybe riding sweep.
