Athens Dual Sport trail ride Sunday 9-16-12

Guys,
the folks at the Athens Motorcycle club are doing a dual sport trail ride this Sunday. They are trying to raise some money to cover their property taxes. ( bike event turn-outs aren't what they used to be).
They have been around since 1934, and are having a tough year.

The dual sport ride will be around 100 miles. Plenty of trails, back roads, and nice Ohio woods. They are providing a nice lunch. Bring your own can of gas.

Hope some of you guys can make it out.

Hoping to be there, but family stuff may get in the way.

The treasurer of the Athens Motorcycle Club is a co-worker and close friend. They are having a pretty rough year financially, and could really use the support. AMC hosts some fun events, but turnout hasn't been great the last year or two.

Don't know if any of you Ohio boys know the Brintlingers from Galloway/Grove City. Twins, Dave & Darrell have been big motorcycle enthusiasts around Columbus for a long time. I have known them for about 25 years or so. Always smiling, always telling a story.

For the last 15+ years they have been officials with AMA Pro flat track. They were the guys that made the races happen. Dedicated, hard working & always excited about flat track. Neither could go more than a few seconds without a smile on their face.

Dave and his son Tyler were killed in a tragic traffic accident returning from Knoxville. Darrell was seriously injured in the accident.

Vaya Con Dios guys!

Danville - Thursday or Friday - EARLY. . .

Hey Matt - you'll have to get me down there. I've got a 950 and a 450 - which do you think is better suited for that AEP area that you ride? I've scratched around a little down by Will's Creek and east of Dresden - the Dresden / Adamsville area (that I know) haul roads are pretty wide open, as in WFO.

I think I read here you're now part of the Orange Crush - what model did you buy?

The 'normal Danville area ride' - I found to be some pretty good stuff - a lot of up/down hill from the Kokosing-Mohichan-Walhonding river to the ridge tops. Lot's of hills - not many houses. Few meth labs flunkies running to town for supplies. . .

You mentioned riding Thursday or Friday - where do you want to go and what time - I'm an early bird. What does it take to qualify as a 'super early bird'?

For anyone's information: the Athens Motorcycle Club Sunday dual sport ride - $30 with lunch. First bike out 9:30 am. 100 mile. Looks like perfect weather.
(see MotoDirtlover post above for link to Athens Motorcycle club info).

What's the Nutcracker entry fee? $55 ?
No need to choose - RIDE BOTH!


Let me know about riding Thursday / Friday - ANYONE ELSE?

I don't know the roads well, but I have been there a few time alone and once with the normal crew. There is a good combo of curvy gravel, torn up logging roads, abandoned roads, and quad tracks. It's pretty easy to connect to the Danville roads. I would take a 450, but that's just because I'm riding my KLR 250....

I'm not dogging the Danville roads, best free riding I have done, just curious what you had in mind. I'm getting pretty in tune with the roads and the trails there

I am Katoom owner, I have a 450SX that's plated and has some EXC and MXC parts thrown in for good measure. Not ready for long rides yet until I get rid of the motocross gearing.

I'm game to ride anywhere, would prefer not to get too deep trail wise as I'm on a mostly bald 244 and won't have time to swap on my knobby. I would prob leave my place around 7-7:30 after helping the Mrs. get the baby up. Not super early, but early compared to the usual noon start time it is, I'd like to be home by 2ish.

for those of us who could use some help with our off-road skills (and I KNOW I'm not the only one) there are classes taught by experts...which are expensive. instead of plunking down a lot of money (or maybe in preparation of same) you can read this very detailed description of Jimmy Lewis' off-road skills class:

http://www.gunsmoke.com/vacations/ji...005/index.html

and while reading about it is not the same as doing it, there's a lot of good info here that will help me become a better rider. I do want to do a class like this one day, in the meantime, I'll try to use what I can glean from this report.

now I just need to get my damned XR running so I can do some practicing.

You need to get a hold of Holycaveman on here. He can do a nice class for you to teach you the essentials. He's been helping Ohio inmates learn how to ride off-road for years....

Just play follow the leader with Meef and co...You will learn the skills you need or die in the woods....

I was gonna ask mgorman and some of you guys who've been at it for years and years if you'd ever thought of doing a class...one of the biggest reasons that I haven't taken one yet is that aside from being pricey, the ones I know about are all hundreds (or thousands) of miles away.
