I haven't found diddly for dirt here in Richmond. Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough.

Where? I'm interested if I don't have to work, and it's not incredibly far away.

Welcome. If you are in Norfolk, the best answer is head due west.

My area pretty much blows carp taint aside from the occasional farm access roads we occasionaly poach.

I'm riding back to Colorado for a few weeks. PM me if you want to go local here around mid August.

How you like the DL1000?

You, and others on this thread, might enjoy a low-key motorcycle rally in Buena VIsta, VA - happens in Mid August. I think it's the weekend of 12 August.

I'm trying to get more info now, but it's a no-brand laid back rally.

The area around Buena Vista is full of good, curvy paved roads and tons of fire roads. Shoe Creek is a more challenging trail and has a number of water crossings - probabaly about 40 minutes from the rally site.

I've emailed a POC to get more info.

New KTM 990 Rider

Hey Ya'll, I'm a new owner of a 990. I picked it up at Lewis Motorcycle Sports in Portsmouth. I love this thing. It's really hard to find dirt to ride in eastern VA. Everything is privately owned. There are some private areas that you may get access to by checking with the ATV riders. Surry has some powerlines you can ride. A little advice...be sure to check with land owners before you ride on their land. Especially Surry Co. If you have friends that hunt in organized clubs...you may be able to get permission to ride their land when hunting season is not in. In that situation...be sure to have written permission on you while riding. If you do not have permission to ride on the land and you do it anyway...if you get stopped..be polite..apologectic...if you mouth off to them...things could get bad
