There is a HUMM coming to the Appalachians

If all goes well I know that I will attend the 1st USA HUMM in August. Sort of like a off road poker run. I will hopefully be able to ride dirt again by then. Two person teams, so if anyone is interested I am looking for a riding partner.

A few friends and I competed in the HUMM Rocky Mountains event in Panorama, BC in July this year. We had a blast; it's a great event. Strange that event is 2 person teams, usually it's 2-4 people.

The North Carolina Stecoah meeting is a lot of fun, but it it one of a few meetups held each year. If you have not stayed at Stecoah you will enjoy it, as it is motorcycles only, either camping or cabins. Deals gap, the dragon, and a few other great twisties.

The HUMM is a actual off road poker run. Not many of these, at lease I have never seen one before. It is sponsored by Tourateck and Horisons Unlimited. Both these folks know a lot about riding off road. Like Camels ADV stated, sure this will be a great ride and a lot of fun.

That year there were a few Africa Twins at the North Carolina meetup. Attached are a few pics from Horizon Unlimited meetups, with a few friends.

Which bike did you ride the HUMM on? I was thinking my Yamaha 250, but I am way to old to chase any more rewards. Heck, I am even considering driving my Africa Twin all the way from Texas.

At the speed I can currently ride a dirt bike at, I am a shoe in for the "get a camel" award! I can just see me getting passed by the clean up unit.

Our team was a couple F800s, one 950SE and my 1190R. We won the multi-cylinder GPS class and first overall beating the single cylinder teams as well. Who says ADV bikes aren't fast or capable AT was in the shop last year but I'll be on it for the '17 HUMM Rockies event.

We weren't wasting anytime; 169km/hr in the dirt is a new high score for me



We had some spectacular riding; the Rockies never disappoint!
