I used to chase a very fast Larry Beaver around motocross tracks
Was that you Larry?

[QUOTE=eemsreno;21071367]Went back to the water crossing with my son and daughter in law,


Steve how do you like you WR250R. I have been reading the WR250R Mega Thread this winter. I am looking for something to do more single track type dual sport riding and muddy "B" roads.

Larry
I like it more all the time.
Very smooth.
You have to run it hard to get around but is fast if you run it hard.
I traided with my son on the 690 and I liked mine better, He has a lot of power but I don't need that much.
When you first get it , It seems doggy but gets better with some miles.
Steve

The sad part of that statement is "used" to be fast.

I see from your profile we both have 350's and GasGas trials bikes.

Freeride is my next bike if they come to the US.

I know you're name, because I race against you occasionally at the IERA hare scrambles and in my opinion, you're still fast for an old guy. Did you ride over to the Morrison DS ride last year with Spencer?

This is going to be fun!!!

So, can you tell us yet? I'm hoping it's north of you, cause that'd make it closer to me!

It is north of Stockport, Iowa on Cedar Creek.
Sassafras Ave.



Now no one beat me there with a Tenere.

No danger of me beating you there. That's a 4 hour round trip for me. Thanks for sharing with us though! I can't believe that's an actual street!
