Explore a bit today

Wanted to try out my new knobbies (D606) so headed out this morning to ride parts of sections 113 and 114, pretty much just staying inside the Colliers Mills WMA. Great stuff - some rocky climbs, rolling whoops, steep decents....... and lots of sand. Much better with the knobbies (coming from Trailwings). Was pleasently surprised to find the GPS taking me on some pretty narrow single track, complete with a wild turkey that ran in front of me on the trail for a while before flying into a tree. Also had a water crossing that didn't look that deep until my engine was submerged past the crank case (along with my feet). That was exciting.

Kind of spooky though, I did not see a single other soul in 2 hours of exploration. The solitude was nice, but I kept thinking that if I broke down they'd never find me!

tacitblue .... were you the guy that stopped and asked if I was okay when I was airing back up after riding? That bike looks very familiar.

thanks btw, if you were that guy.

Been there, done that. I know exactly where you were... Well actually Alex (alskee750) did that, I was conveniently behind him, I just had to help pull him out. ...I got wet later when I did a 180 in a puddle and went down...

No, not me, but if I saw you I would have stopped too, so I'll say you're welcome anyway!

I'm going to explore around in there some more, lots more trail throughout Colliers Mills than is on the TNJT track. I think I like water crossing... well, probably at least until I fall in it!

I have a ride report in my sig for doing the southern parts. I think I started further south than the sections you guys are talking about. I did not post a lot of pics of the offroad sections...there are a lot of people on here that frown upon that sort of thing.

I read your ride report a while ago - good stuff! About the pics though, the one I posted was definitely part of the legally accessable vehicle trails, so do you mean just in general we should refrain from trail pics? I just want to understand so I don't inadvertantly do something that jeopardizes anything or gets anyone upset...

To each is own, and since I was harassed about it, I'll never tell anyone else what to do or not to do. There is the theory that since the tree huggers allegedly monitor sites like this, people posting pictures of motorcycles offroad, gives them ammo for their cause...whether it legal offroad riding or illegal offroad riding. At the time I posted that RR, it was a hot button issue, so I refrained from posting anything other than shots than ones that you could get to with a car.

Ok, got it. Thanks for the info. I'll definitely be careful that I not post anything that could be misinterpreted as destructive or illegal.

Just joined the forum...

..but I read the sticky posts!

Hello gang,

I just joined the forum. I ride a 2012 Super Tenere and I just moved to NJ. I was looking to download some routes but I seem to be incapable to find the links to the files... I have read the sticky posts to make sure that my question was not on the FAQ and I did not see it...

Where can I download NJ on-off road routes of 1 to 2 days?

Thanks in advance and my apologies if I missed something really obvious here...
