2014 Thomaston Dam Thread

Saturday May 3rd is the first weekend the Dam will be open, so I figured we could start up a thread for us to plan the first ride of the year and many more. Who's up for Thomaston on 5/3?

They list the opening day for trail bikes as Tuesday, May 1st.

I guess it's a mistake, as May 1st is a Thursday....

I'll be there Thursday! (as long as they open!)

It's the closest riding spot for me.

EVERY DAY I'M OFF, I'LL BE THERE! (Not really, but you get the idea!)

I'll try for Saturday as well.

Good! I can't do weekdays with work so hope to see you there on Saturday with the new 500. Did you get the rad and hand guards? How about the bash plate and rotor guard? All installed?

When all else fails, you can get a good laugh watching Tigers play in the mud.

Was ?fortunate? enough to meet up with someone last year that showed me most of the upper trails and I only dropped it once. But it was into the root ball pit of the downed tree on the left side of the trail. Of course it was on the flat section

Needed a hand a few times but other than that, it was easy

Hand guards, skid plate and rad guards all done. Rotor guard will be done by then.

The Trail Bike area will be closed on opening day, May 1, until further notice due to flood control operations at Thomaston Dam. Please consider prior storm events while planning your arrival. Thomaston Dam is a Flood Risk Management area which is subject to flooding during and after these events. Please call 860-283-5540 for current trail conditions.

0Hopefully the water level will be low enough to open this weekend...
