Love me some trails down there. Doable on the 950se so I know you'll rock the hills. Just beware of some local Federal lands. Talk to the owner of the campground here --->www.crawfordsattellico.com/page14.html Fellow KTM rider and knows the trails.

I was remembering yours doing that as I was on mine today running 75mph for 200+ miles.

I'll also up the ante and offer up my 250 to anyone who wants to ride it, the thing can't be killed and if it is...meh...
Will the ride on Friday be 650 Vstrom friendly?

As long as you have a decent tire, not planning on doing anything too nuts unless Alan wants to test out the tensile strength of his leg. The creek crossings and one or two trail like roads can be by passed if you don't feel comfortable with them and you should have no problem on Bats Nest on Wee, Buildit did most of this ride a month or so ago on his DL1000 with no issues.

I'm pretty sad I have to put my snowboard up (or be forced to ride hills of ice) but I am looking forward to a much shorter off-season for the bike.
Clarksburg puts you in an area with many awesome roads to play on. I regularly ride down towards that way on a day ride from Columbus. Glenville (SW of Clarksburg) is a favorite lunch stop. You'll find excellent twisty roads in every direction.

As for adventure riding and gravel roads, there much of that in abundance too. The TWVT goes through just to the southeast and there are lots of backroads to explore.

I don't get down there much in the winter due to short days but in the summer I average about two rides per month to the area.

Later,
M

I'm thinking meeting at my house around 10. Typical bullshit session before we depart.

Meh, it will prob change by then. I don't plan on riding in the rain, but 40's are fine with me, I consider it miserable when it gets below 25ish. 40's are perfect for gravel road riding.

I'm the same way, I can ride in the 40's but if its raining on top of that, now you're talking a whole nother ball of wax...I'm not committing either way, yet...it'll be a game-time decision. If I decide to bag it, I'll text ya.

I do just bought it yesterday after freezing my ass off for 3 winters. Looks like I will be off work in December so I should get some use out of it. Plus the guy at the dealership gave me $50 off the jacket liner.

Me too. I can run heated gear on all of my bikes. Even the KLR with the 17A output.

No whiners. It's Ohio in the fall. Expect mud, leaves, roots, and hills.
Make sure the guy behind you makes the turn.
Have fun. Tell lies later about how big the hills were, and how deep the mud was.
We'll ride until 11:30 or 1, or whenever.
Oh, and:
If you show up on a 650, you better be able to ride that mother in the woods, or we're leaving it there when you bury it, and kill the battery.
I think I'll be able to make this Kory! I told Mom and I wouldn't be over until tomorrow night.

I'm going to try to make this as long as it's not raining when it's time for me to hit the road. Can you post or PM me your address?
