June 3-5  Garnet ride
I know it is cancelled, but a few of us still want to make the ride, so Iíll be starting in Bucklin,ks. Others will start in Dodge City. Iím leaving Wichita at 6:30am headed to Bucklin. ( google it, if you do not know where it is ) This ride should be all or mostly gravel/dirt, maybe a bit of sand/ slab riding.
Day 1 234 miles. Bucklin, Ks to Wellington Leave at 9am from the Bucklin cafe and C store, on the west side of town on HWY 54. We ride to Wellington and stay the night, a few of us have reservations at the travel lodge, if you want to camp that is fine.
Day 2 212 miles. Wellington to Garnett, After we get to Garnet, everyone can either camp or find a place to stay. Iíll be headed home on Sunday morning.
Iíll be on my XT250, the route should be fine for any adventure bike or small bike, but must be street legal. Anyone is welcome to came along, so far I think we have 5 going

Bike's checked over, fluids topped off and I'm already packed. Even though tomorrow will be all slab to get near the Friday ride start I can't wait to hit the road in the morning! Been a hard couple of years since I've been on a decent ride.
