No commission needed. Just figured you could chum the water while the sharks were swimming.

Inspiring, that's what you are.


I don't know which was worse, ordering my TE250 when they 1st came out then taking almost a year to get here which by then I had quit racing and got my money back or the 2 times I bought new bikes while injured and couldn't ride them. Bought a 560 Can-Am a couple days after tearing my ACL in 2 then a couple years later the Transalp the morning of the ACL replacement but laying there on the patio in a lawnchair staring at a new bike was pure torture!

The ride in the video took off from Bloomsburg, PA about 3/4 of the way across the state just off of 80.

I wandered onto a neat network of dirt roads and easy trails near a state park about in that area a few years ago. It was immediately south of I-80, about halfway or more through PA. Can't recall the closest town nor the park name now.

Larry has roll charts from 5 separate dual sports that each leave from a different State Park in PA. I really like the trails that the guys put together in the video, and will likely re-run those, but who knows.

Ok Adventure Boys and aspiring Rally Racers, this video is way out of reach for me but maybe one of you will step up and meet the challenge? I'm sure Buildit will supply the film footage

Easy peasy. Just give me Marc Coma's 450 in rally trim, and in a few years of hard training and stuff, I'll attempt it.

Thank god, just got my Civic back from the body shop... got to lose the Charger they gave me for the past week and a half. I was unimpressed. It makes a fair cruiser but as a daily long distance driver it blows.

Watching a headlight and tail light do that is not something you see every day. I think this one is funny.

Saw that on another forum...poor ladies. The event is new, and the field for women was pretty small, from reading up on the entrants I don't think any of them had any trials or enduro cross experience (MX, WORCS, etc.) and it shows...they looked a little intimidated by the course...timidity was hurting a lot of them on the approaches you could see them gas up and then let off.

But, hey, they're out there doing it and I'm not so I'm not gonna laugh. Takes some upper-body to muscle a bike through technical terrain on a 4-stroke.
