Finally found someone that knows how to ride dirt that would let me tag along. Sad part is his DRZ is for sale and he's not replacing it but buying a snowmobile. He's a hell of a rider on his bigass Harley and knows his shit on trails too. I have to make sure the DRZ doesn't sell somehow
First we hit a power line trail. Dumped the DR 3-4 times there. I suck at trail riding and am a n00b so I'm cool with dumping it. Glad he was around to help me out of a few bad situations.

The DR got a new IMS tank this week...check it out...



powerline trail, muddier and ruttier than it looks in the pics, trust me...



washed out section from last falls flooding...



DRZ for sale $2600, PM me if you're interested, it's on Binghamton NY CL. Please don't buy it





Taking a break. I'd dropped the bike 4 times I think in the first hour.



Then my buddy showed me river trails I didn't even know existed...1 mile from my house! Thanks Al, I can get plenty of practice here whenever I want. Don't buy his DRZ



trust me, none of todays riding was as dry as these pics appear. Very muddy and slick.



a better image of the conditions...



trying to avoid a small hill climb I came to a deadend in this crap, did the hill...



What a workout. I'm sooooo out of shape. Today was a good experience and I learned a lot. Expect to see more pics from the river section. I didn't drop it once there and had plenty of gooey crap to go through so I guess I learned a little today.


Here's a few more pics from my mentor today.



Catching my breath...






BTW, that DRZ is a nice bike and well taken care of. I think it's an 02. I hate to see him get rid of it but it's a good running machine if anyone nearby is interested...did I just say that?
