We should make reservations for the campground early!
I'm ready for a good bonfire.

Ok the wife (siegie) and me are in. Anybody gona do some riding on Friday? We'll probably come early and stay late.

I'm thinking we would have more fun on a WRR and 690R than our 650GS and 800GS correct?

Either will be fine as long as you are able to ride them for around 250 miles. If it is raining the smaller might be more fun if it is nice it could be done on anything. As for riding Friday I won't be putting together anything but it is hard to find a bad road so I would just do some exploring.

Maybe.

Considering the size of the group...isn't it likely to be split up ? Then have a less technical route for those with big bikes and or street tires.

Someone commented "I hope it doesn't rain" ...understood rain could make it less fun with smooth tires and for the camping part but otherwise....I've had more fun riding these roads during...or just after rain than I have when its dusty.

I would say yes there will be more than one group.

So do we request camping reservations individually or is that handled in bulk by the organizer?

First post is updated. Campground is expecting us. They only need to call ahead if using a camper/rig.
