Wouldn't be my first time with my head up my ass.

Like getting the bright idea to follow behind Kory real close for good video.

The result even 20 miles later.

We need ideas - so anyone out there with even ideas is encouraged to speak up. Noah's freakin' out a little because I'm pushing the design work on him Noah ozzes talent, just lacks confidence and follow through, that's where I come in, except on the....on the.....OH! shiny thing!!! wait...what was I talking about?

Here's a few photos from yesterday's ride. I met Alan on his WR250 and Cory on his DR650 in Danville.



Along the Mohican River







I followed Cory. Alan was always up ahead.





A little covered bridge on private property


Zoomed in





We rode under Ohio's longest covered bridge - now a bicycle path



The dirt roads were damp enough so no dust











A rare shot with Alan in it - he was usually WAY ahead





Blue skies - what a nice day it was







Are we lost? No, we're in the Mohican Wilderness ...



Bridge over the Kokosing River



Everywhere we went, water levels are still quite high



Gravel roads are fun but I like dirt roads better



Near the end of the ride. The sun is setting so time to get going home



Thanks for the ride, guys, it was awesome!



Next up, anyone want to head for Tar Hollow on Thursday? It's raining and 30's today but Thursday sounds decent.

Later,
M

Surpised this didn't show up on your Gear Whore video, especially considering the KTM color scheme.

No worries. It was fun.
Try some metal hand-guards like Cycra or EE and you'll be glad you did. KTM brake levers are expensive, the better hand-guards save levers when you dump the bike on the trail.

MUD riding tips:
Have a good aggressive front tire. (even somewhat worn still works way better than 50/50 tires) I run mine at 12-13psi on my 270# bike when off-road (like yesterday), 18-20 psi if I'll be riding mostly gravel road.
Same goes for rear tire. If you noticed, my rear tire was pretty shot, but I ran it at 13# and it still worked OK. If I was on the 300 2T, I would have been at 10 or 11 psi.
I do use Bridgestone ultra heavy tubes to help keep from flatting.
Look ahead down the trail. ( it sounds simple, but it does help) You can pick your line(s) quicker and not have to try to make quick movements in slick terrain. ( which generally doesn't end well)
When it is really muddy ( not yesterday), I tend to try and "unweight" the front as much as possible and use the rear brake and rear wheel to "steer".
Momentum is your friend in the mud in regards to hill climbs and crap-hole crossings. That is why Luke got roosted behind me in that one crap-hole section. I didn't want to get stuck, so I hammered it.

I may be in for next weekend....

Wow, great tips Kory.

I recently bought a used set of Cycra Probends to replace a cheapy (but still decent) set of Tusk barkbusters. I can really appreciate what the extra cost of admission gets you... the materials, fit, and workmanship of the Cycra are so much better. The way the inner mounts are dropped down to allow cables and such to clear is innovative. Any barkbusters are better than none, but man is that Cycra stuff nice. $135 new gets you the entire kit. Bonus: made in Hebron, OH.
