FYI the 7 mtns dualsport is still planned for Sept 12th pending DCNR final approval.. Their will be a covid mitigation to read ,a covid health questionnaire and waivers to be completed. If you have symptoms or answer yes to any of the health questions you can not attend the event. We are planning to accept 225 riders. Members will be allowed to sign up first with the remaining spots opened two weeks later. By being a member you are given this privilege and the honor of knowing you are supporting the only free single track riding in the state . We thank those who have joined for their support If you have not become a member and ride the BESF area please consider to support and anyone you know that rides Bald Eagle. We will also be offering shirts to those who would like one but cant do the dualsport Price is yet to be determined. More info to come soon

I signed up. PTPA does a lot of work keeping the trails open so I alway feel like its a good cause.

I'll go up Friday and camp Fri night for sure and maybe Sat night, we'll see. Assume you are bringing your trailer? I'll have my van, we can set up and cook out and stuff if ya want.

Yes, planning on bringing the trailer. That sounds like good plan to me.

I just stumbled on this tread and impulsively registered for the event :think: . Anyone can tell me how doable this is on a DR650? I don't have a ton of experience but for reference rode the KAT last year and again last month.
I normally always ride with a buddy of mine but he just moved overseas. And now I start to worry it might be unwise to go alone. If there is anybody from DC or around that feels like meeting up there, please let me know :cheers: . I just joined this forum so I guess I should post some more to say hi to everyone here :thumbup:

Yes, doable on DR650, assuming decent tires and decent rider. Roll chart needed. Make friends at start area. Try not to ride alone.

I have mandatory training this weekend, and can't make it. I'll plan another BE trip before or after.

Alright, thanks for the info.
Not too sure about arriving there and trying to find riding buddies at the start. I'd prefer to fall back on this as plan B. So if someone is in a similar situation or doesn't mind me to tag along let me know. To give you an idea, this was our KAT ride report last year (the second one earlier this year went a lot smoother) https://advrider.com/f/threads/the-ken ... -38282920
