Yes, one day ride.

If you want to make the weekend, TNT Motorsports is fairly close by, they have tracks and trails. A little further away is Enoree OHV trails.

Primitive camping is free at Armenia, we'll be watching SX or cycle movies on the projector big screen that night, so finish your Saturday ride and come on by!

Yep you've got exactly 1 post! lol

I would recommend a roll chart holder.
You can follow along with people, but it's always nice to be self sufficient.

I prefer the DIY Pelican one(search and ye shall find,) or order a Moose.

Well, for starters, you'll needs s street legal bike. Knobbies are the tires needed. A roll chart holder and safety gear. I will have roll chart holders for sale there, if you cant find one. You need it to navigate the course, along with your odometer.

Done and done. KLX is legal, picked up an f/m21 and r/D606 a few weeks ago. I can oder a roll chart tomorrow when I go to pick up jets for the bike. Now, the odo on the bike does not roll forward, only resets, is that going to be an issue?

Not a huge problem, but you do have to recognize that there is a certain amount of error in motorcycle odometers, enough that you will notice.

At most dual sport rides, the route sheet will instruct you to reset your odometer to 0 at certain points. This keeps the error to a minimum.

If you find your odometer is not in agreement with the route sheet, you will need to adjust. If a given turn at say, 10.3 miles, ends up being at 10.1 miles according to your odometer, best start looking a bit earlier for the rest of the day {and even more early on longer runs}

And since every ride is measured by a different bike, the rest ride you attend maybe be opposite, and you adjust accordingly.

KLX eh? Wouldnt a DRZ speedo/odo work on it? My DRZ speedo/odo is adjustable and resettable. I often make minor corrections on the fly.

I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to adapt a drz setup to it, but last drz I helped do any work on had a trail tech setup. I doubt the oem speedo drive on the hub could be that different, but I can't be sure, I don't have one I can lay my eyes on anymore. I really liked the trial tech, and the vapor setup isn't too expensive, so I may go that route.

Well, welcome to the sport!

Check out Armenia DS videos on youtube, and remember, lots of folks edit out the more technical stuff, since it aint speedy and cool.

If you take a regular section of trail that offers an easy-out and regret it, take the easy-outs! No shame in increasing the enjoyment of the day.

Mailed in registration today. Looking forward to it. How does this ride/trail compare to Broxton Bridge?

This ride is so well planned with marked turns and such you can do with out the odo, but it helps. Just fellow a group of riders, that is what most end up doing anyway.

May I suggest... air down the m21 and d606 for this ride.
