Monkey Butt 2013
« on: January 07, 2013, 06:29:59 pm »
Is September 15th. Mark your calendars. This is an extremely fun ride. Trails are well marked and if you don't have a roll chart you will be fine as long as you're not the first ones out. It is a dual sport ride so a street legal bike is recommended even though there is no tech inspection and some run a 2 stroke mx bike with a quad plate mounted to the hand guard.

I reccommend following chris, the roll chart slows him down enough to actually almost keep in step with him

Yeah yeah. I'm still trying to get comfortable trying to read it while trying to go fast.

Better than me reading it. We would have been lost on some radish farm somewhere with an army of rednecks holding us hostage with shotguns.

With enough notice I should be in for this one.  So, thanks for the 9 months notice, LOL.

I second Chris as a roll chart reader/leader.  Worked well for us in the rain in the 2011 edition of this event as well.

HAHA.  You were probably no more than 200 ish feet from a road for most of that event honestly.  When we did it in 2009 (when it was called the Newark Enduro), Rick carried a GPS in his backpack.  That came in handy when he had to pull off.

Ha I was waiting for that pic.

BTW that third vid Chris posted was the Hogback portion of the loop.  Some of our best and fastest trails there.

I have been granted the weekend off from the great and powerful Lowe's. I forgot this was an AMA event so I will have to renew my card. I want to pre enter but I couldn't find the form to download. Is it to early?

I can already taste the garbage plate, and feel the heartburn lol

Since it is not a competition event, I do not think that the promoting club requires AMA membership, but they certainly encourage it.
