It will be tough for me to do true adventure rides, since my WR is really only good for off-road riding and short stints on pavement, and the FJR is definitely only for pavement (with me on it, anyway). But I am hoping to find some rides I can manage here.
Let me know when you would like to do some off road exploring, I am not much for slab riding myself.
If anyone wants to join or meet up, I am planning on an AM mountain ride on MONDAY........planning on doing the regular maple-sally, old 105 area fast gravel sections, grabbing lunch and heading back early. I will be trucking up myself.
knybanjo-let me know if your still up in the area!
