RI & Eastern CT Big Bike Drop-o-rama

I am starting this post based on Akarob's suggestion we move it off the Tag-o-rama thread.

A few folks have expressed an interest in a big bike, aka 1200 GS/KTM 9?? trail ride. I moved here to RI only a month or so ago so I am unqualified to take the lead on this, but I can start a thread I have ridden some of the trails in Arcadia and Pachaug (what the hell is a Pachaug anyway) and this is my only off road experience. I follow the 20mph speed limit pretty closely, not out of respect for the law,, but fear of bodilly injury.

Anyway, hopefully someone who knows these roads will jump in and take the lead on this for sometime in October?

if you guys end up going a bit further west I have the gps info for the Trans-MA trail which is ideal for big trailies.
let me know and I can shoot it along.

I'd be up for a nice ride through Arcadia and into CT on the sumo (which is my "big" bike). I'll be in Western MA/VT this weekend, but if you guys come up with something in mid/late October, I'd love to join in if you don't mind a girl hanging around. You can still burp and fart and swear and go on about boobies; I grew up with brothers.

The SNoobs Leaf Peepin DS 100, love it.

Who's the lead on this?

I could even go so far as to lead through Pachaug / Mt Misery roads and let others lead through Arcadia, Nachaug, or any other park. I know Mt Misery has a few miles of easy "roads" that are only bike accessible, and are not hiking trails.

Hey guys! Our bikes just got home from South America yesterday! We're picking them up from the airport tomorrow and sending them to Max BMW for some TLC, but I'd love to do some more riding with y'all when we get 'em back!

(And I swear - I'm much better in the mud since I got rid of the Trailwings. Anakee 2s all the way for my DS riding!)

Dying to tackle some more dirt. Hopefully you guys will be going out in the next couple of weeks so we can join you!

After South America, I suspect our little dirt roads in our little corner of Connecticut might seem just a little.....tame???
We are having a camp-n-ride next weekend in Pachaug State Park, Saturday looks like a good day to get around if you can.

The roads we were on last November (I think?) were definitely tame compared to SA, but we didn't ride as much dirt there as I'd like. Want more practice!

Will have to see if Max BMW is done with our bikes by then. I'm guessing they're pretty busy right now, plus with electrical gremlins I have no idea if we'll be waiting for parts long, etc. But I'll keep my fingers crossed and check out the thread!
