What to Bring To the Sunday Dirt Ride

A. Snacks, lunch and water.

B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans, and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: dirt helmet, goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be aware it may get hot.

C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a unique experience!

D. There will be nowhere to drop off luggage, so plan on doing the entire ride with what you have. This is an ‘adventure’ ride, so if you want, bring luggage to simulate a ride.

E. Type of bike. It has to be a legal dual sport bike that can go at least 170 miles. Terrain will be a combination of street and dirt. You can being a smaller dual sport bike, but make sure to being extra gas or make friends with a fellow with a big gas tank. There are always several 1200 GS Adventurers there with over 9 gallons of gas.
