I am in the club and really want to know what you thought about the ride. Did anyone ride the event with a GPS on their bike? Did you download the course at sign up from the GPS Geek?
I agree it was freaking hot on Saturday. As for changing the schedule, club tradition has it on the second weekend in August. Along with the other dual sport schedules in Dist. 37 changing weekends may end up conflicting with other events in the district.

I wish I had taken the time to download the route into my GPS. I still need to come up with a place to mount it. My bars are pretty well out of spare room due to the damper, mirror, hot start, ICO & roll chart. I did turn on the GPS, stowed in my backpack and logged a pretty good chunk of the route. Coverage gets a bit spotty though. I just bought a higher gain remote antenna and will try that on my next ride with the antenna velcroed to the outside of the backpack and the receiver protected inside the backpack.
Thanks again BBTRs, D37 and the all the sponsors!
