CT/RI Small Bike Crash-o-Rama rides!

[disclaimer: I may edit this first post from time to time depending on activity within the thread in the future]

There was and still is the "http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=626295" RI/CT Big Bike Drop-o-Rama thread but after a while many of us big bike riders got tired of crashing our 1/4 ton+ bikes in mud puddles, on rocky hill climbs, or in tight single track and having to haul our behemoths out of danger to a spot where they could be re-mounted. So we bought smaller and more trail oriented dual sport bikes. WR250's, DRZ400's, CRF250L's, DR/XR 650's, TW200's (you won't be left out!), DR350's, XR250's, etc, etc.. But we still followed the big bike oriented threads....

This thread is for people in Southern New England who want to ride rougher terrain than a bmw 1200GS could handle but aren't looking for the pace or harshness of a Netra enduro race.. What bike you're riding doesn't really matter as long as that's your mindset and your bike can handle it.. Newer trail riders with excessive motivation or experienced trail riders with some hesitation are probably our prime demographic..



Check out the following posts for more info....

When in doubt, gas it. It will either fix the problem, or at the very least end the suspense.

07 650GS / 05 DRZ400S / 72 CB350 (that hasn't run since shortly after I bought it)
