The restroom/shower information is good to know. So, I presume we just need to call the hotel to reserve a tent site?
Thanks Roger

Yes .... Jeanne (the manager) will help you take care of the details.

Best, Roger

Ride Leader Wanted! We have 60 riders registered, and need at least one more Ride Leader. Up to the task? There is some modest "swag" for the one who steps up.

Thanks .... Roger

Newbie to the ride so have some questions.  I have a couple of toys that I would typically use depending on the terrain - a KTM 1190 Adventure or a KTM 500 EXC-F,  Is the ride dirt road, two track or single track?  Distance?  I'm assuming its a loop and back to Beaumont, but terrain does make a difference.  (Dropping the 1190 at 13,000 ft, is a workout as is 10+ hours on the 500 - done both, will do again but...)

I'm not going to be there but I know the area very well.  The questions is your skill level on the bikes.  You will be riding on county roads that will run from low maintenance to wide fast gravel.  If there has been rain the low maintenance roads can become impossible on a big bike.  A smaller bike would, depending on the rider, not have a problem.  The pics below is from a ride on a min. maint. road about 4 miles from Beaumont. 





Last weekend I took two friends on a ride around the area.  I was on a 1250GSA, another was a 1200GSA and the third on an 800GS.  The road where the pics taken above were dry with deep ruts.  We had no problems.
