Why was this not on the "list"? :shrug:

I think registration closed before OFG posted.

We'll my bike died about 30% of the way thru Sunday so Rusty or Jim would be a better source of info.
They did have some new options on Saturday that were pretty good/challenging in spots.
I thought it was pretty good but not great.

This is from a review on KTM Talk

First the good things:
Good parking/camping area
Great food (breakfast / lunch /dinner)
Good bathrooms
Great showers with hot water

No so good things:
WAY - WAY to much road (gravel & blacktop) for the dual sport riders
Route sheets that we not very accurate
Lack of arrows just is baffling to me?? There were at least two times just yesterday that there were 50-60 riders riding in circles in the woods looking for a direction

Actually I rode the 200 xcw Saturday and the 525 exc Sunday. I did it mostly as a checkout for KAT.

The 525 just died as I was navigating a go-around on a BIG mud hole and the battery was dead and it wouldn't restart with my feeble kicking.

It appears the Trail Tech voltage regulator died. New one should be here tomorrow. It seems to be running fine with a recharged battery :shrug:
