Again, kudos to all those who made this happen. :cheers:

However it's still a bit of a goat fuck. I can't find a $$ of the required day use fee. And with very limited parking- which must be reserved- I just don't know.
It's a bit confusing--got a tagged bike? Show up and ride or no- I still need to buy a day use pass somewhere? And I can't just on a whim haul the bike down any day that I fee like it, I gotta reserve a parking spot. :screwy:

Help us out Ken.

I expect there to be offsite parking in the coming months (likely provided by a nearby landowner for a fee) and you can then ride-on. Day passes will be available online. IIRC, the day-use fee is about $10.

Is there a day use fee for a tagged dualsport bike?

Final decision is tomorrow on opening date. I'll be stunned if it isn't open Sunday.
