WELCOME to SCMA, they are a GREAT bunch of blokes 'ere as u likely know by now.
No special equipment my friend. Just LD riding items as usual.
When u submit your information for the ride, SCMA will send you the additional info u will need. Your towel, clips for the towel, etc....
It is a FANTASTIC ride!!!! And the time frame to do it in helps keep it a comfortably ride.
When u get to Madawaska, you may want to meet up with Joe & Diane LaChance. They are FANTASTIC people. Joe started the HD park up there. I was there recently and it the changes they made are COMMENDABLE!! They are even putting in an archway as you drive up the entrance to the park.
If u can give me a "heads up", maybe I can ride with you to the Keys. I am in South Florida and occasionally ride down and up with the SCMA chaps. Hmm, actually only twice so far but I would be happy to make it a regular thing.
If u would like to contact Joe LaChance, le tme onw at BuzzCap7@BuzzCap.NET and I will send his e-mail to you.
Have a GREAT day!!
