CADS (Classic, Adventure, Dual Sport)





Say hello to the NEW CADS thread. The old one has served us well over the years, but it's time for a change. We've had a few other changes over the past six months too, Todd (D6066) is our organizer (we need one ) and communications czar that handles everything internet and email. Rich is event co-ordinator, promoter and all-around front man, Wolfgang handles sponsorships, negotiations, the CADS mascot Carson, doubles as resident side-hack and KLR expert, and is our New Mexico rep., a busy man. Dave is our GPS guru and big fast KTM expert (we have small KTM experts too). Mike is routing and roll chart man extraordinaire, and there's Sam, our mechanic, if it's broke (and it is) he can fix it. And me, all I did was try to get a dualsport club started about five or so years ago where a few like-minded misfits could get together, BS and ride every once in a while, needless to say, we've been having a lot of fun.

Ok seriously, there is also a much revised (trimmed down) email list for those that have been active over the past year or so and any new folks that have shown up in recent months (it's not difficult to get on this list, just come to a meeting or a ride or PM Todd (D066) and let him know you'd like to get on it). Out-of-towners are welcome too if they just want to keep abreast of activities (but be warned we pretty much make this shit up as we go). Oh, and initiation requirements aren't a big problem, we have a short nine mile atv loop in Ocala National Forest that must be completed in 20 minutes or less any day of your choosing during July or August : )

So, from now on anything CADS goes here, it's the new "official" thread.


Here's Sam doin a little routine maintenance.

Into/Over night Dual Sport Trip N GA

I am relatively new to the group, I try to keep my mouth shut and soak up the combined knowledge of the CADS members have. When I am working I am out of town, but when I am home I am usually free. If you are looking for a ride in the middle of the week, I can usually go. I have amateur wrenching skills and even worse GPS knowledge .

BlueLighning puts on a great ride and I have a lot of fun. There was 25 starting out on Saturday and it was tough to keep everyone together. There were a few injuries and crashes(including my own) but a good day. We started in Senoia, GA. This is where the walking dead is filmed. I had dinner with a friend Friday night and got to walk around the town a bit. We stay in Cuthbert, GA Saturday night. Day two we were down to 11 riders. I stuck around until about 1 when the clouds we looking ominous. The riding was diverse from fire roads, to sandy two track. I am enjoying the new bike it shreds up the sand. The rutted up fire roads are going to take some practice .

Pics as promised

Are you guys still gonna meet at grocery stores?

Met a few of you Cads at Osceola a way back, and very much enjoyed the report of the cross-FL rally thing this year.

Keep it going

That's a little far, can't that much time this month but looks like a great event, well organized too. we could probably learn a few things from those guys. Appears to be some nice forest roads close by, may stop in there on the way to Colo. next time and check 'em out. Show us some pics when you get back, never ridden in Ark.

And if you decide to do any of those tracks I sent let us know, some of us would probably be up for riding along at least part of it.

I've never ridden in AR either. The trials look pretty cool from the pics I've seen. A buddy of mine from the forum (Scribe) moved to Fayetteville last summer. Hopefully he'll have an inside track on the choice trails.

Those tracks look good.

It would be nice to incorporate some of those tracks with some of the tracks I did last weekend.
