I don't know what it is about those orange bikes but I think I got passed a million times by them this weekend. I think I fell over about 20 times on Saturday and maybe two times Sunday. There were probably about 250 riders there this weekend and about 90 percent of the bikes were orange with what seemed like to me expert riders (mgorman types..lol).

PLEASE keep me in the loop in this regard! I'll be able to manage Tar Hallow trips Monday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday evenings once you get it plated; during the summer if you get off work at 5, we could make it down there with a couple hours of daylight left pretty easy; I get off around 3 or 4 Mondays and Wednesdays.

A more local spot with some bumps/hills/banked curves/obstacles would be exceptional. Preferably legal, but simply out of sight would work for me. My 2 known spots are fun, but they're slightly visible from somewhat busy roads, and I wouldn't feel comfortable hanging out there for any more than 10-15 minutes at a time.

Will do! We can be dirt ninjas together.....
I'm pretty sure Z@ch will join us as well.

I get off at 3:30 in the summer. 2 week nights at IP, but it leaves 3 nights open.

EDIT: they are actually revamping the airport golf course right now - you have NO idea how bad I want to sneak in there and ride.......

Your observations are the same as mine on the few organized dual sports I've gone to. KTM dominates, and a lot of those guys are wicked good. I'll be struggling on some obstacle and suddenly 4 guys will ride past me like it ain't nothing.

Renfro looks like a good time, it's on my list of shit I want to do.

I felt we did pretty well considering we were actually on dualsports. The majority really had dirt bikes that had plates.

My best explanation of the weekend is I went hiking with a 280# motorcycle, and I feel like it today.

Well not to piss off the posers but I thought I would offer up this tid bit of tech tips. I found that a mothers power ball on a drill wipes the embedded bug guts off of your helmet in mere seconds. I wax my lid every few months so in the summer so that may have helped get them off easy also. I just like to keep my helmet slicked up so my watermelon sized head will slip through the air with less resistance.

Microfiber cloth and water works really well too!

About once a month in the summer, I take a shower with my helmet on, and clean it that way. Seriously.

I thought that you were supposed to keep your hidden identity as the "Stig" a secret.

It'd be easier to find a joint that doesn't hurt, however sitting here thinking about it, I didn't find any, so in a nutshell, your answer would be yes.

I did my anti ATGATT ride this weekend. I hopped on my crusty rusty musty 640A and went for a ride in shorts, t-shirt, running shoes and no skid lid. Unfortunately with a tank that big, I didn't get the full effect of having the breeze blow up my shorts.

Then I rode the 1100 Honda with an orange and black KTM jacket, every Harley waved thinking I was the real deal. However, the helmet and brown work boots should have let them know I was posing.
