Anyone else, give me a shout, as there still might be room.

I'm in!!!! (As long as I can get my NH OHV sticker before Sunday)

Did you get my email?

I'm not advocating not having a sticker (I have one), but I have seen like 1 ranger (in passing) in the past year and half.

There is an Arctic Cat place in Troy open on Sunday if it comes to it.

Sunday meeting at 9:00 am. I just sent an email to those who confirmed (3+ myself). Some of you expressed interest in riding around here as well, so whether you want to join us or not is up to you. For future reference, if someone wants to ride the trails, one of the many access points to the trail network is located at.

Are you sure they will have the OHV sticker at the Troy Arctic Cat? I'd call to make sure..... I have no idea if the would have them applicable for MC use since they don't sell bikes there.... just a thought! You guys have fun, ride safe, and I hope to catch up with you soon on another ride!

Climber backwards, here's a link to some open dates for me to ride. Ceck your dance card and see if you have an open spot!

Hey Duallies!

Just getting back in touch with my dirty side...

Been a track junky down south for years and just picked up a Multistrada and keep finding myself on gravel roads.

I had put more streetish Kenda 76somethings on the DRZ for dual sport stuff, my knobs are back at the beach in NC.

I have been all over these trails from MA to VT to NH, just short little hour or so jaunts from my place here in Brattleboro. I'm needing my GPS on me at all times as I end up down or up the craziest routes! Love these roads around here! The beaches of NC/SC are all just flat sandy and swampy, but the race tracks rule...year round!

Power lines off of Weatherhead Hollow Rd.


a quick phone vid of a stream I dead ended at on a power line in NH around Swanzee?


hit me up at dielivin@hotmail.com if you want to ride, I'm game for anything, but I'm sure I'm going to be needing some knobs back on the DRZ!

Ha, I've never seen that brook in Swanzey (not yet), but I came across a waterfall on the border of Swanzey and Troy

And yes, you will need knobs. I quickly learned that even Anakees are pretty useless when things get slippery.

Thanks Henry, but I'd never make it in time. Maybe next time. Got back tonight from Cape Cod. I may be joining a ride locally if they are still doing it tomorrow.

I just saw this part..... meaning you f'ers are out there right now!! I've been piddling around with the bikes down in the barn.... I took the family and some neighbors out there last week. with a side by side and the neighbors had four wheelers, one being a Kymco 150 four wheeler. What a POS. they had to tow it all the way back from Richmond to Troy. Slow....slow... ride. I found a great new place to park with lots of nice parking over on the Richmond side.

Ride Report

So a few of us northerners got together to do some DSing today despite the rain. The planned route was a mix of gravel and class 4: http://tinyurl.com/44ybr9t

The ride started with 3 of us kicking off from Danville. Here we are on Cole's Pond Road:



We deviated from the route in a few spots, to hit a couple of additional class 4s in Walden, as well as one in Hardwick.

The KLR took a dirt/rock nap down by Nichols Pond resulting in some bash plate / shifter interference:



Nothing a branch, elbow grease and zip ties couldn't fix.

In Hardwick the two guys joining me split off, and another coworker met up after having driven the last section of the route in reverse. We continued on Buffalo Mtn road and Woodbury mountain road. No action photos, as we were hauling arse and having fun, but here is an aftermath photo:



Those roads have dried up a bit in the past couple weeks, so I thought I could drive straight through one of the mud holes... and got swamped. A testament to the E-09s on the bike though, it crawled its way right out with a spectacular fountain of mud. (Those tires have 3k on them so far btw, extremely happy with them).

We ended up skipping the Eagle Ledge road yet again, as we had things to do and were getting hungry. That's certainly still on the list of things to do.

Tom (jackpiner57), sorry I missed you! Your voicemail just came through. We must have been sitting at the bottom of Woodbury Mtn road at the same time you were on Eagle Ledge. Maybe you ran into a rider heading south on County road, he was on an old Honda thumper, he headed south just after we split off to head home.
