    Cool Advanced GS Ride lead by BMW PC ...... Friday

    Here Kitty ?

    I am not sure how BMW PC who is hosting or the GS Giant Team is going to separate the sheep from the mountain goats on this one. The planner said no more than 25 because its going to take time to get folks through it. Much of it is intermediate GSsing dealing with loose rocks and erosion, then the tunnels , the steep loose rock climb up and over Buck Mountain, the best single track that is GS handle bar wide...... it could be tighter but they picked this one. Then the area where a coal dust cladded ATV rider wondered why bikes were here and who are we........ that is the Black Dakar area !

    But all said and done there is still lots of twisty paved roads because its a dual sport ride and we want you to see this area. No we had trouble getting into one area because of gates in a thick and very dark woods that belonged to a ancient trust that built America, it has a grand hunting lodge and a caretaker. So by the time three people say yes we would be planning the return rally to Bloomsburg. Plus the woods is haunted by a full figure apparition on horse back and it doesn't like noise coming through the hollow near the murder site ........ sorry no Ichabod Crane action this year. But there is plenty of dirt and coal for your motorcycle boot stockings.

    How should GSers be sorted into an advance status ?

    As you register, you getthe option to choose the "hard" GS Adventure.

    Other than that, it will be whoever shows up in the GS Giant area early enough.

    This ride *leaves* at 8am. And the goal is to be back at the rally site by 3pm for the start of the GS Giant competition. no mercy.

    it will be a big day for the big dogs.

    ...oh, and handcrafted beer.

    Ok, the beef is on order. I will be roasting it over open coals and aromatic woods. It will be gently pierced and stuffed with garlic. Then rubbed with the virginest of olive oil. Spices from exotic lands will then be massaged and let to infuse the beef. On the spit, the beef will be basted with the finest of wine, my own.

    The beverages of choice will be supplied by Full Pint Brewing, www.fullpintbrewing.com , and a selection of their craft beer will be dispensed.

    Sign up, show up, enjoy.

    Whatever happened to the GS game drive ?

    I know there is big deer in the rocky mountains of western Pa because I saw the movie Deer Hunter.

    I think I've died and gone to dual sport heaven.
    Well fed and hammered of course.
    I'm lost. I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return. Please ask me to wait.
    Any tool if used improperly can be used as a hammer.

    have to cancel

    Hey all,
    Sorry to say, but some health issues are requiring me to stay home from the MOA rally, and of course the Gypsy Tour.

    Would someone remove me from the registered list, and so free up a slot for someone else.
    Thanks, Michael Mason

    GPS routes for the Gypsy Tour?

    I am register for the Gypse ride and this will be my first such tour.

    Are there GPS or map routes available for the Marienville area or ride to Stillwater or do we just show up and go with the flow. I have a new GPS (I had the old one for 10 years) and am trying to become familiar with it. I have routes plotted to Forest Camp.

    Looking forward to the 17th.

    Anyone interested in the 4 corners rider before the Gypsy Tour?

    I'm thinking about taking the long way to the Gypsy Tour to cover the PA 4 Corners ride starting at the southeast corner. Would anyone be interested in joining to grab up to 200 points (the 100 points for the ride plus up to another 100 points for stop-ins)? I would start Saturday 7/16 in Landenberg, work my way around counter-clockwise (hitting stop-in's where possible) and end near Marienville at the Gypsy Tour start on Sunday 7/17. The link shows a rough idea (simply based on Google route suggestions). I am open to suggested routes but the start location is best for me.
