Norm & Doug's Dual-Sport Just-For-Fun Event, Dillard, GA

Norm & Doug's Dual-Sport Just-For-Fun Event

A weekend of fairly easy Dual-Sport riding. Mostly two-track, lots of gravel, some rocks, some dirt. Weather should be mild/cool 50-75 degrees f.  Soil in this area is sandy/loamy and drains quickly so there isn't much slippery mud. That said, there are areas that do not favor the large over 1000cc bikes.
 
 There are a number of suggested routes to choose from and your hosts, Doug Pippin and I will help you load your GPS.
 
 Accommodations:
 The Gateway Inn
 64 White Oak Ln
 Dillard, GA 30537
 (706) 746-3585
 http://gatewayinndillard.com/
 $70.00/room w 2 queen sized beds
 When you call to make your reservation, tell them you are with the MSTA group. The hotel is holding 10 rooms until March 25.
 
 GPS route files will be made available at the hotel.
 Norm will arrive about 4-5PM on Thursday to meet and greet everyone. Doug will also arrive on Thursday afternoon.
 Contact Norm at nkern@kernvideo.com or
 Contact Doug Pippin at doug.pippin@bellsouth.net, 828-490-8529
  for further information

Your phone probably can't handle the "%20" spaces notation. Worked fine on my computer.

Just use http://msta-se.com and go from there.

Thanks, Jim.

I just read your recommendations as far as preload and oil level with the Cogent DDC setup on the DR650 forks and will be doing some adjusting. I went with the original 130 mm of oil and will be lowering it closer to your setting.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
