Thanks for the input guys, I appreciate it. Not certain if I would do one or both days.

I have ridden a little off-road, but it has been a while.

MeefZah, thanks for the invite. I would go in a heart beat if I didn't have to work, but this is one of those weekends that I have something going on. Next time for sure.

Just don't show up with worn out tires, you'll be miserable, especially if it rains

If I show up with sharp new tires, you can bet that Christmas just passed! I usually don't change 'em until the flat spot will hold the bike up by itself.

Thanks,

The tires are pretty much new, I only have a couple of hours on the bike. They are the DOT Metzlers. Whatever they are I do not like them, MCE or somethings. Probably trade the take offs for some beer if someone wants them.

I plan to put Michelin S12s on it.

Great tire in the dirt and loamy stuff but they suck on the road. At least that's my experience with the 950se.

Yeah, probably scary on the road.....I have some really cool scars from full dirt knobbies on a dualsport bike............. Everything was going along just fine until I ran out of talent.

I'll put the S12s on a 99% off-road bike. The only tarmac I plan to do is linking a few trails.

Hey, a few of us are meeting in Danville at 9:00 am on Sunday for a gravel ride; if you want to come I can swing through Sparta on my way and retrieve you.
What kind of gravel ride? Township Roads or worse?

This will be interesting when all 4 show up...

Simple, it becomes a last bike standing competition.

I'm one step closer to owning a WR250R. The original owner said his check cleared for the lien pay-off. He should have the title any day now. I got tired to waiting and rode my wife's bike while she was out of town. Here's a picture of the family. Her (heavily modified) 500cc Buell Blast next to my "little" 250.

I'm looking to ride tomorrow, MeezZah is doing a "gravel" ride, but it might involve going over waterfalls and climbing trees.

I might be better going with you and your new motorcycle and lower the chances of trying to ride my V-Strom upside down on a goat path.

Yes, I think our riding skills are similar, Mike Gorman is going too. We'd like to have you along.
