Should we tell mgorwoman that this would make a nice stocking stuffer?

Y'all quit talkin' 'bout my kin folk that way, its bringin' me down from my meth and oxycontin high.

They have trails for all skill levels. ;) I'm by no means an expert, but have been there once back in February when it was muddy as hell and I survived.

The AA loop will probably kick most of our asses, but the normal trails around there aren't hard. You can choose which to ride.

I was going to go but I have to do a long OT day on Saturday late into the night, so I'm likely out. I'm gonna get out and do some back roads and trails Sunday tho, so if anyone's skipping Crow and wants to do some normal dual sport stuff feel free to join me.

Is said 690 sporting knobs? Been looking to ride one in the woods.

Make sure you have real riding boots, they frown on pedestrian gear. There is an old pair of 10.5's in my trailer if I drive.

They're the people that are now going to floor it when we try to pass them on a back country road because they think we're going to mess with them.

They're the cops that are going to pull us over for piddly shit because they assume we are like these guys when they're not looking.

In Baltimore, they were going to do that anyways! I had the misfortune of living there for 3 years.

My 690 is sporting a new set of MT21s, just spooned them on last weekend. You are welcome to take it for a spin through the woods if you like.

I was planning to wear my usual off road riding gear so I should be good with the gear police. Thanks for the tip though.

(Some sizes in black too)

Price is pretty ridiculous for a name-brand, reputable (albeit entry level), boot. Get them online with a couple of stickers for free shipping.
Thanks for the heads up Mike. Kyle needed new boots and since I had to go to the doctor in columbus today it worked out good. He also needed new pants and a jacket and we found both in his size on sale.

How's the recovery going Alan? I was thinking about editing our ride video with Kory when we were at Perry. Don't want to depress you though. ;)

Suppose I'll have to invest some $ in gear before something like this. Plenty of local abandoned roads around here to keep me busy for awhile.

I saw the Meef's patrolling the area the last time I was there. I thought for sure Mark was going to get that crown vic stuck...

You mother fuckers realize there is a appropriate forum called "Church, State & Money" for political and societal views in the basement, right?
