Big Bear Trail Riders Motorcycle Club is proud to announce registration is now open for the 26th Annual Big Bear Run AMA National Dual Sport and Adventure Bike Ride to be held on June 27, 2020.
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic our event will be shortened to one day with the banquet to be held outside at the Big Bear Convention Center.
The ride was basically cancelled but there were so many Riders calling  and wanting to get out and stretch their Dual Sport legs, BBTR decided to put on a one day event on short notice. Since the event is very soon, they have not collected much SWAG to give away at the banquet and they need everyone who wants to ride to commit and register as soon as possible.
Below is the link to the Big Bear Run registration page and entry form. In addition to the usual entry form and liability waiver, we need all riders and guest that will attend to print, sign and bring with you to turn in at the registration table our COVID-19 Warning and Release of Liability. The link for this form is on the Big Bear Run Registration web page.

NEPG – Round 2:

Location: Greensboro, Georgia

The National Enduro series finally started back up after a four month layoff due to the Covid virus. It was Beta factory rider Cody Barnes that came out on top of the heavy-contested Pro2 class. Teammate Thorn Devlin finished a very respectable 6th in the Pro class. Devlin continues to find his stride in the class becoming more comfortable on his 300 RR.

Donnie Emler and Marty Smith proved to be an important team in the growth of the motocross arena.



Of note here, Kurt Hough was an absolute animal in the Michigan sand. He dominated events that were loose, sandy, whooped out and tight.

Back in the early 90s KTM was trying to get their act together in the four stroke arena. Once we got them started (this was hit and miss, and to be honest quite painful) the machine performed quite well. I had trouble riding them off-road, being a short shift guy the LC4 would hiccup and flameout with a fervor, and always at the most inopportune times. I always gravitated back to the 2-strokes which were gaining big Mo right at that time.
