    The Tri-State area has some great dual sport riding in the Taconic, Berkshire and Green Mountain ranges, but one of the most popular features of the Rally will be the GS track we have constructed. It is a challenging course that will be open all day on Friday and Saturday. And, we have a fleet of 10 BMW G450 Xs for you to demo on the track!

    Or, bring your own ride and practice for the main event: the GS Trials on Saturday. If you’d like to expand your horizons beyond the track, there will be a number of self-guided and guided dual sport rides. All rides and demos will commence from our tent next to the GS track and route sheets for self-guided tours will be available all day.

    Below is a schedule for the organized dual sport activities at the Rally:

    Friday, July 30th:
    8:00 AM – Guided Dual Sport Ride Departs
    9:00 AM – GS Trials Course Opens (all day)
    9:00 AM – G450 X Demos on Trials Course Begin (all day)
    11:00 AM – Guided Dual Sport Ride Departs
    2:00 PM – Guided Dual Sport Ride Departs
    4:00 PM – G450 X Demos on Trials Course Close
    5:00 PM – GS Trials Course Closes

    Saturday, July 31st:
    8:00 AM – Guided Dual Sport Ride Departs
    9:00 AM – GS Trials Course Opens
    9:00 AM – G450 X Demos on Trials Course Begin
    11:00 AM – Guided Dual Sport Ride Departs
    1:00 PM – G450 X Demos on Trials Course Close
    1:00 PM – GS Trials Course Closes
    1:00 PM – GS Trials Competition Begins
    4:00 PM – GS Trials Competition Ends

    Rides to take at the rally:

    Dual Sport rides from Sunday the 25th to the 31st. there’s ten different rides, They are route-sheet rides. some are four hours, some are eight hours, your pleasure, from beginner to hard core crazy. Everything is a route sheet ride.

    There will be a group hard core crazy ride “Not for the faint of heart” NOT ROUTE SHEETED. Knobbies required, Saturday morning. Be back for lunch. I’ll be sweeping. Everyone drops their bike, at least once. Kickstands up at 8am. Rider’s meeting at 7:30 by the grandstand, presumably.

    GS Trials will begin after Lunch, and the Not for Faint of heart ride returns.

    Contact Steve Mauk at Max BMW Motorcycles for route sheets. 518-279-3040

    Paul,

    is there a way to make the route sheets/GPS files for the GS rides available ahead of time thru email? Would love to be able to get them into my GPS before I head up there.

    Thanks

    [QUOTE=PaulBach »]Could you do a one hour seminar describing the route, adventure and just general show and tell for the faint of heart like myself who own a GS but will never use it for a Grand Canyon adventure?

    All I can offer is a beer or two but would love to hear about the adventure.

    Paul[/QUOTE]

    I have Topo and other maps used for Grand Canyon trip and prepared general route descriptions along with overview of planning phase. I will have pics and HD vids from helmet cam on usb stick if anyone has laptop with them. Hopyfulyl it’s interesting to all. If anyone is considering going, I can spend time detailing more specific route and planning aspects – heck I might even want to go again!
    I am leaving NYC at 3:00pm Friday, will stop by tent area upon arrival.
    safe riding
