Later,

I was really hoping to find someone to ride Tar Hollow with this weekend, as I dont know where any of the trails are...next weekend is out for me due to working afternoon shift...but this weekend I'm on nights so I can squeeze in some morning riding, or sleep in the morning and ride in the afternoon.

whaddaya say Luke, you and Dagny up for a change of plan if me and Solace are gonna come along?

Family obligation Sunday. sorry. Rob and I rode Richland Wednesday and it was still in good shape despite the rain. If you wanna give the Honda a work out I'd suggest checking it out. Take 327 south from rt50 till you see the drive with the antlers on the arch. Just past that make a left and you'll go right past the parking lot entrance. If you get to the lumber trucking place you just missed it. Serious, check it out. I think you'll like it.

well, I was talking about saturday instead of sunday, which is why I mentioned Dagny and change of plan...but if you stick with the rail bed ride, I might just do that. or if you can tell/show me where to get onto the trails in Tar Hollow, I might go there instead

Dress warm with layers you can remove. It's supposed to be windy again tomorrow and with our lack of trees, well you can cool off fast!

Any of you folks ride in Washington, Monroe, Noble counties regularly? There are tons of great gravel roads around here, I know most of them, but am pretty new (slow) to riding motorcycles. If anyone wants to see some of these roads, I'd be willing to show if you're willing to go slow or if you ride around here regularly, I'd be willing to tag along. I've done a few 200+ mile days with no ill effects, so my butt is tough anyway. :) I live in Marietta.
I have a 1993 KLR650 with Tourances on it, they spin a little in the muddy creek crossings in the middle of some of the roads I ride.I may look for a 80/20 or 70/30 instead of these 90/10s. Suggestions?
BTW, I can appreciate the mountain biking talk, I was 3rd overall in the sport class of the West Virginia series a couple of years ago. I really enjoy the 40-100 mile distance, though.

Skinko 244 is a good 50/50 tire and does well on the road.

Afterwards we can head back to my place and hang around the garage to chat, help with maintenance needs, or if the yard is dry play around practicing log crossings, controlled riding or whatever. I figure we'll be back at my place about 1pm.
I've got soda, snacks and hot dogs that I'll cook on the grill.
I don't think I'm going to be able to go on the ride unless I can reschedule some stuff, but I'll try to meet folks at McD's just to say hi.

I tried the railbed last week and made it as far as SR 38 but west of that is deep loose gravel that is way beyond my ability, especially on a heavy adv bike. I went 100 yds or so and turned back. But I am a renowned chicken.

This ride won't be a race, well EJV may wanna try his metal vs the KTM, but the real event here is to get everyone to try some new stuff, practice or learn some new skills, and most of all have fun. We have lots of time to play. Hope you can get more free time and join us for the whole day.

Cool, I might be bringing a friend along who's got a new bike to try out...not sure yet but he's a cool dude (I'm sitting in with his band Saturday night).
