My offroad skills are still pretty entry level, so maybe Junac can weigh in on this, as he's a better rider (for now...), but I think it's just like a motocross park. There's single track, dual track, dirt hills, natural ramps, jumps, and it extends for several kms. They're prepping the area for a subdivision and it's still really rough, so I'm not hurting anything. I've seen local kids riding ATVs in there while construction workers worked at the opposite end, and clearly they didn't mind.

Maybe worth a look before it's too developed and we're no longer welcome.
Im free some of tomorrow and wed and thursday, just need to get this back tire back onto the bike and lined up right. First time for me, so lining up the tire will be the biggest deal. I dont think I have to deal with the chain much should still be where I left it for tension.

Aslo gonna try to find a decent place for our meet.

Thanks for the info.

I plan on going out there tonight after dinner. It will probably take me 20 mins to get there from LaSalle and I'll post when I leave my house but it will more then likely be around 6:00 to 7:00 PM

If anyone cares to join me I will be on the blue DR650. Just in case a few dozen people show up you'll know who I am. lol

Have fun. keep riding.

Maybe I can get my rear tire on in time, I have a few admistrative tasks to deal with prior to dinner, but I live about 1 km max from the site on East Puce.
Feel free to ring me @ 226-363-0785 or stop by @ 294 East Puice Rd. ( if you come buy ring and knock loud, I cant hear itr in the basement.

Yeah I was out there from at least 6:30 until 7:15 or so. I never road that path byu the rail tracks before so I followed it up until W Belle river road and then back. Ran into a couple of kids on ATV's pretty neat little trail. Unfortunately it takes me a full 25 mins to get there.

I did stop by Nokmuays place, and it appears I just missed him up at the development site.

It got dark really fast so the next time I come out there on a school night I'll have to leave at like 5:30 PM the latest.

Wednesday looks like rain but if its warm on Thursday I will be going out again.

Until then.

Yeah I stopped by your place, the lights were on and garage open no truck and both bikes were there, I knocked, but no one came, just the dog barking, I rode the site a little and then met Tim at my place and then headed out to a bud's place. I might be able to ride wed and thurs maybe....

Question, Who in the London area changes tires if you bring your own in.

My brother-in-law has a cruiser and he is getting a pair of tires from the US.

I said I would check for him to see who changes tires in the region. Any idea what they typically charge.

I live up in Ottawa and most of the shops won't install if you bring your own.

thanks

JM

I just called around Windsor for the same reason. Legends on Walker will do it for $50 per tire. The HD shop wanted $150. Dirtbike shops might be cheaper yet.

I have had mine put on my sport bike at Zdeno in Kitchener, and Iggys in Windsor did it too. Generally its 25 or so if its their tire and then like 35-45 if not.
