Title: First Annual Poker Run @ Bogies Adventures! -- October 15th!
Post by: Derek on September 11, 2017, 01:34:16 PM
Alright guys, here the details!

First annual Fall Poker Run @ Bogies Adventures!!


WHAT IS A POKER RUN?
- A poker run is NOT a race, and speed or skill level has nothing to do with you chances of winning. It is an organized trail ride, through a closed course, with everyone riding the same direction. With every lap you complete, you'll receive a playing card. You can do as many laps as you'd like, but you can only earn a maximum of five cards. At the end of the poker run [1PMish], we'll compare hands and determine the winners!

WHERE:   Bogies Adventures   ||  33387 2nd Rd Latham, Kansas, KS 67072  ||  (620) 965-2024

WHEN: Sunday, October 15th, 2017. 
COST: $15

SPONSORS:  CycleGear of Wichita

All size bikes and skill levels are welcome!  Loop will consist of about 5 miles of trails encompassing the compound. Terrain ranges from grassy meadows, to rocky stream crossings under a foot deep. Difficulty is rated at medium, with bypasses on anything 'sporty'.

Seems like a short loop. Does it stay interesting going 'round and 'round? Like there's enough variation and so forth?

Oh yeah, trust me, you'll enjoy the loop a lot. I'm going to take the 990 down in a week or two and get some video of the course. It's laid out to be big bike friendly- a great opportunity to work on those skills :)

That's correct- we had to adjust it a week earlier due to a conflict with the Forward Motion HS Series having a race on the 22nd. I'm gonna update the thread and calendar entry today to reflect it.

I just realized I'll be working that weekend unfortunately, I had to trade out a weekend with a co worker so I could go see Kansas the next week at Hartman Arena!! 2nd row seat for the 40th anniversary Leftoverture show!!!

Derek did you manage to get any video?
Rain forecast all week but long range for next week looks dry so I would imagine would be good conditions.

Hey Asis-  Yeah i've got the video- just gotta upload it!  Going to work on that today! Bogies has a weird weather force field around it.. it can be pouring nearby and they just get a sprinkle. I'll be there t his weekend helping to put up ribbon and such, i'll give another update afterwards :)

This looks like it'll be a hoot!! However, I'll be headed to Arkansas for a week. We will be taking the KTM and the DRZ with us this year so we should have a few days of good dual sport riding. We'll be in the Mena area.
Ya all have fun!!

Looks awesome! Don't think I could behave and with my current setup, prolly break sumin :(
Certainly putting it on my map when I get my KLX.
Thx for posting.

You can totally do all that on  your KLR- I did all that on my 530 with street tires, no problems at all. Its absolutely big bike freindly, and we'll have bypasses through anything remotely sketch. I did all the passes, and no bypasses, in that video.

I have no doubt I could and would love it, but I do have the lowering links on and it is dropped about 3 inches and during the CMA ride, that short lil road up to teeter rock I bottomed pretty hard at least 3 times. When I said I couldn't behave I meant any chance I get to launch I usually take it  ;D
Looks like it would be a good idea to dismount mirrors...??? No doubt I will be hauling my ride if I can make it.
Depends on some other things pan out, my Uncle's 4WD group might be doing a meet at a private abandoned quarry in Chase co.

Paging Marc: Is that offer to borrow your KLR still valid  ::)

BUMP!!

Talked with Carl and Connie-  course marking is coming along nicely! Should be a great time this weekend! They didnt get very much rain down there, so things should be a lot of fun!

Looks like you should have great weather tomorrow for the event! I hope you have a great turnout as well, wish I could make it because it sounds like a damn good time romping around in the woods! Unfortunately my current "work myself into the ground" schedule requires me to work this weekend.....

Have fun and be safe and may a BTK member be the big winner!!!

Storm kept me up kinda late with work, and I figured it would be a muddy mess; so I slept in.

How were the trails?

Good call Nick, it was to muddy for me, I learned a lot, and found a few  muscles I didn't know I had... oh tomorrow is going to be  rough. For me, it would be a cool course when it is dry, my bike is a " dirt bike" not a "mud bike".  But still fun.
And if anyone has seen Carl ride, look out, I only wish I could ride like that at my age, it his age, it's nuts !!!

Thanks Marc!

Yeah,  if we had a couple more hours for it to dry, it would've been do-able for folks without knobbies. Its an awesome, fun course, but was too much for even 50/50 tires. Carl made a short course redirect after the first lap, one that was on mostly gravel, and folks burned that in real well.

All told, we had a really great turnout considering the weather and such.  Thanks to everyone that came out!!
