Pretty much same here. I've still never been to Wayne... but if it's going to be busy or full of hunters that's probably a bad idea.

If you've got room for my bike in your truck/trailer (and are willing), Crow Canyon is a thought.

Or Perry... or Tar Hallow... or Danville.

Wayne probably won't be bad this time of year, especially if we go where Ron and I rode last time - the loop over off by itself was utterly deserted and it was a nice busy weekend. I'm fine with riding there, if you wanna check it out.

It's still archery season, hunters are a possibility anywhere we go but bow guys will likely be deep in the woods away from where we will be riding. I'd rather deal with arrows than slugs anyway.

Whatever suits ya, I'm easy.

That area of Wayne was super-fun by the way. I would be tempted to ride the 690 if we go there.

I'm not as concerned about hunting season now as I will be when the shotgunfest starts.

No Fees for Wayne NF Nov. 10-12

I ride the Wayne trails a few times each year and really enjoy it when it's not too crowded. This weekend is likely to be fairly busy because the trail fees have been waived by the Forest Service for Veterans Day Weekend (Nov. 10, 11, 12). Having said that, I'll be part of the crowd since I promised to take my 14 year-old there for a weekend of riding. Last year I rode several times on weekends from mid Nov. - mid Dec. and didn't have any issues with hunters or crowds.

I'm still down for Wayne, even if it's a busy weekend I'm still pretty confident the loop we rode last time will be deserted...so we'd just have the run down from New Straitsville to deal with any traffic, but in the morning that won't be much of an issue. It was a nice way to go last time, ride down to Nelsonville and get some lunch, ride back up and hit the other loop....made for a good ride.

Plus, free is right up my alley.

Free Wayne sounds excellent! New Straightsville looks to be about an hour and a half for me.

BTW, I did my tar hallow loop today and found a shit ton of people; might be the last time I head down there till after the initial surge of hunting season.

Cool, let's plan on the New Straitsville trailhead Sunday at 10am then.

Oh, that reminds me I gotta get a new batt. for the KTM...and pack wet-wipes in case I demonstrate my 1-man mud rasslin again. Ron appreciated it, I know.

I didn't do a search on here so I'm not sure if the topic has come up, but lane splitting seems to be my new hobby...

http://adventuretouringmotorcycle.com/motorcycle-laws/


Has anyone been ticketed/pulled over for splitting? Or am I going to be the test case?

There's so many times I wanted to but haven't
I have yet to see anyone in my town do it.

I've split lanes several times in heavy traffic, mostly when I'm ass-end-charlie I'll just go to the right around the stopped traffic.

I never figured it was legal or even gray area, was just prepared to get a ticket but I'd rather split than get crushed when someone doesn't see me.

I've seen it more than once. Regrettably at 70+ mph speeds too. I just avoid the traffic on the bike. Zero tickets that I've seen or heard of from it.
