I even struck out on truck shopping yesterday. I can't believe how hard it is to find a used new body style Avalanche.

I'm not sure how much we checked out and how much is left to check out. I had my GPS on so when I look at the tracks I'll get a better idea. ;)

Invisible rides a little faster than I'm used to so I wiped out a couple of times. I'm glad I bought some knee and elbow pads!
Fun times yesterday at Wayne! It's actually fairly dry considering the rain we have had lately.

ATV activity was about normal compared to what I've seen there before.

Indy and I ran the corridor from New Straitsville toward Nelsonville. I was following the tracks I have from riding there with swingset last year.

Either too much air in the front tire, or not enough tread. Your front tire slid about 20 feet before you hit the ground.

Thanks again for letting me use them! I hope I didn't abuse them too bad. ;)

I think it was too much air. It's a like new MX51 with pretty sharp edges still.

I'm sore as hell today already. :( Usually it takes a couple of days to fully set in. I was thinking of heading to TH today and exploring but since my legs are stiff as a board I think I'll just stick to trying to take Indy for walk. lol

Those jumps must have really worked out my legs yesterday.

The one in Knox Co, off 715, near the Walhonding?

Off roading near Riley Chapel, or riding Riley Chapel Rd., because - just pointing this out - Riley Chapel is smooth graded gravel and is a well maintained towship road. If you went off road near there I'd be curious where you went, most of that is all MWCD land and the trails in there are quad track and smaller, with a lot of rocks and trees down, and pretty impassable on a bigger bike.

And for some reason I thought Lisa had a WRR already; I swear I recall her posting about getting one...

you can off road on Riley Chapel under the bridge, there's also that short trail with the waterbars on it, but it dead ends after a short while.

Yeah, I remember drunken sand rail man from last season. Not visualizing the "dead end trail with waterbars"... you mean the oil access road that runs at a sharp angle off Riley Chapel north of the intersection with 715? It kind of drops down from the road and then switchbacks up a hill? If so, the gas co ran us out of there several years ago...

That's the one. Only two places off of Riley that I can imagine being on with a big bike, unless you are MikeF, then you just bust a left and climb a hillside at random

Only on the KLR and anything under 600 yards doesn't count.
