[QUOTE=Madhouse;20123209]Lat/longs sent to Treeman, Woodsrider and you.

REALLY,,,,,,,,I would suggest getting David Haynes book "Motorcycling Alabama". His routes are outstanding.
On the Covered Bridge route he provided, I took the street friendly ride. He also provided a dualsport route of the covered bridges and I took just a smidgin on the VStrom (the picture where the little train tunnel was).

Looked like a snap from the little bit I rode.

Just ordered the book.

Wow--enjoyed the pics & ride report, and that "Roadside America" website is Good Stuff! Just spent a half hour checking it out. Been thru Prattville many times, never heard about the "Cross Garden" 'til now.

I have been out of the Trials loop for many years, but I have not seen any local activity.
I rode with the group you probably found down in central Florida out of the Crooms area.
I used to have a decent area for trials riding near me, but it has been close down for a few years now.

No doubt Pete and Tony.

That fella was a cap pistol for sure!
He'd be fun around one of our campfires,,,,,,,,,,,,for a little while.
I'd like to hear more about the sex pit thing he was talking about.

There are several guys in the Pcola area who ride trials but they do not visit this site. Try R&R Racing (Bob Rikker) for more info.... not sure number etc but his shop is in Pcola.

Good luck...

Loren,

As for trials riding around here, like was posted up...they mostly don't visit this thread or site, more of a insiders thing....BUT....as for riding areas around here, once Whiting OHV/Clear Creek OHV opens up after all the paperwork gets approved through the proper channels, they have an awesome area to go and ride at (big pit with many obstacles, walls, etc.....fly over it everyday, can't stop looking at it), or you can get some obstacles in your backyard. I've been on the trials bike hunt for over a year now (reading/researching), but I'll be moving in the spring/summer so it all depends on where the military moves me if I'll get one. Worst case, move on over here, keep in touch with this thread and sell me your trials bike if you aren't into it..... Just out of curiosity, what kind of bike do you have?

Thanks for the help and the number, I'll give him a call. I had a Beta Rev 3 270 I just sold and have been sick to my stomach ever since, trials riding is way too much fun to give up and I want to start my sons out on those first anyway.

Thanks again for the help guys.

QUOTE=SingleTrackJeff;20122944]Tony great ride report. I to would like the locations of some of the bridges you showed and maybe the tracks for the trip if you have it.

Looked like a great Thanksgiving ride to me.

Tony,
Great ride report! Really makes me miss my road bike! None of my current bikes would be very kind on my rear end logging that many miles.

Thanks Joel and others for those kind words.
It was a fantastic 2 days,,,,,,,,, and of course we all know pictures never do a ride justice.
Only regret is no body else could go to share the experience.


Sometimes its not where your going, but who your with and you guys are great!
