Thought some of you all would like this.
Don't know whose bike this is, someone on day shift at work. The cases and bike rack are all home built. The guy rides to work in all sorts of weather.

Is there any real advantage to beveling that outside bottom side? Can anyone get that low in a lean?

You don't want them to hit before your peg does. Your peg isn't fixed and will warn you that you're about to low side.

Does seem like giving up usable space. Jesse bags are made like that too

I may be interested but with a caveat; I'm a total noob riding a new to me DR350 that is currently shod with Kenda 761's.

I have ZERO trail riding time unless you count the time when I was 12 riding around the family farm on a Gemini 80.

So depending on what type of riding and what time you wanted to get going AND you don't mind me tagging along I may be able to meet up.

Well, I've never been to Wayne before but I think it's all double track ATV trails. So probably pretty easy except for the muddy areas. You have to have a pa$$ though.

Perry is pretty advanced if you get on the single track stuff or off the main trails. Trails are everywhere and I get lost as soon as I leave the parking area. :( So we'll need a guide for that. Perry is free.

Tar Hollow is pretty easy for the most part. The problem I have is not knowing where all the trails are. The few times I've been there I've just followed someone else and not really paid attention to where we were going. I've been trying to put together a route but haven't come up with a good one yet. TH is also free.

I also forgot to mention that Id have to ride down and back so that will be part of my decision as well. I do have some areas closer to home that I can/should practice on before I tackle anything technical.

Not trying to be noncommittal but I want to learn to walk before I run and I don't want keep anyone from riding at pace that they don't like.

I'll keep an eye out here for any further info

Given how much it's rained lately, you will be miserable trying to get around Perry or Wayne. It is going to be verrrry muddy. I might be able to sneak away for a few hours on saturday if you wanted to do the Danville stuff.

Danville is definitely closer to home and I don't have a lot of confidence in the 761's if things are too wet (especially at this point in the learning curve). I was going to head that direction tomorrow as I have an appointment in Mt V at noon. I wanted to explore around the Mohawk Dam area.

KTM 450exc is plated. Boy, that was easy. After a quick 10 mile shakedown run, I am considering a mirror to see if there are flashing lights behind me.
I'm not sure it is possible to keep the front wheel on the ground while accelerating on pavement. I've not been very successful anyway.
It pulls it up even wound up in 4th. This thing will take some getting used to compared to the WRR.

You need to sell the WRR to Sion now.

Damn, I would offer to go with you, but I have a dentist appointment in Dublin at 11:30.

There are a ton of good gravel roads between Nellie and Centerburg.
