    I don't understand what it is? Sports, music, art, food, brew? All good but I still don't get it?

    apparently all of that will be going on... AND MORE! comical, really. it's a new 'complex' they're building to run all that stuff.

    Mike, what time are you thinking of heading down?

    Natalie has soccer until 11:15, then we get close to Mari's nap time. If I do go, wouldn't be till after 1 likely. Probably 2 or 3. I'm interested to see it in person.

    This place looks cool! A place to take a 4x4? My Fj cruiser likes this.

    Jodie wants to go off roading with her Jeep. Sounds like I can strap the KTM to the hitchcarrier, and go spend the day at this place.

    I would not on a factory jeep hitch. It is just bolted through the rear crossmember, I wouldn't put anything on that hitch with significant leverage.

    Ha, thanks, I actually can't anyway the spare tire sticks out too far. If they actually had dual use days(which I doubt) I'd use my HF trailer, which is pretty well inside the factory tow rating with just one dirt bike.

    You would think that the crossmember would be the issue but it is fully boxed and very strong. It's the wheelbase that limits the tongue weight.
    I have a few friends with JKs that have hauled their 400lb bikes without any problems.
    Would I put a 400lb bike on a Jeep with a class 3? Hell no, but I will haul my 230lb 250 around on my JKR and not think twice.
    Of course a trailer would be ideal.

    Is this going to be the kind of place you can just show up anytime with the nike and rip around? Very confused.

    Re: 508 International- Grand Opening 4/22

    yes, eventually this facility will become a 'multi-sport' playground. so for bikes, you'll be able to show up and ride a track or enduro-cross style obstacle course. kid track too, i believe.

    heard the grand opening was kind of a shit show, opened to the public too soon. from reading a handful of comments, sounds like the side-by-side and 4WD truck crew might of had a good time but two-wheels stuff not so much. moto seemed weak and BMX just as bad. looked like a big mud pit with waiting lines.

    i still have hope though. not an easy thing they are trying to pull off quickly. the big hurdles are out of the way, now comes the work to make it all all a reality. but i still think they should have scoped down the amount of sports/activities. it's just confusing to everyone.

    EDIT: i did not attend, impression is from FB posts.

    The biggest thing that struck me about this place in looking at the facility map was how cramped the layout was. Looks an awful lot like 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag. I hope it works out well and they're successful, anything that helps grow the sport is positive. Just seems like they don't have enough property.
