Those are big tracks, did you drive a front end loader to work? The city got one of their plow trucks stuck in front of my driveway. It was nice to see the sun today.

I live on a dead end street and a city plow got stuck in front of my house. I was out to the Saug state park today snow shoeing. Beauty day! I might go back out again tomorrow.

They are? Than, your haven't ridden much single track have you? Like me and my DR they are better suited to two tracks and wide open roads. My single track'n days sadly are over. No more smashed fingers for me.Welcome to the kat from Kazoo!

Compared to your KLR my Buick is a good single tracker.Yes, by all means get a DRZ or even something smaller would be better for a noob.

But big girls need to be ridden too, and they appreciate it more ;)

Welcome to the site, I used to live in Mattawan so I know the area well.

I had two bikes I like for single track, a 200KDX and a YZ250R. Always like the two stroke power. I'm with Ex-off when it comes to riding hard in the single track, those days are gone. I did ride every District 14 enduro in 1983.

I rode some District 14 enduros as well Morty...and some mx....and hare scrambles, I got a few trophies but I was the perpetual B rider. Now I just ride to eat of which I would classify myself and a A rider. I'll go a hundred miles out of the way for some good BBQ.
