    Yeah, hard to miss his bike with that big Riz on the sides...lol

    I've liked what I've seen so far of that Husaberg. I'm guessing it has a lower COG with that configuration.

    The ad says it has 144 hours on it. I ask them to give me a quote online so I'm sure I'll be getting a call next week from them. ;)

    Can you tell me - do I need a Wayne Sticker in addition to my normal street tag?

    If so, is there a place along 33 to buy one without going into Nelsonville?
    Buy one at Begley's Campground I suppose.

    I`ve done it about 8 times. Normaly I would say don`t make this your first but due to the nice weather you will do fine. DO NOT stray off the trail !!! There is bailing wire all over the place and you WILL find it. If you make a real try at any creek crossing and don`t make it,people are very good about helping you.Don`t worry about keeping time on this one...just ride and have fun and learn......GO FOR IT.......GOOD LUCK !!! I don`t think they run the "mud bougs" anymore but if they do,speed is your friend and always head for where the people are standing...that`s where the solid ground is.

    Unless it has changed since last year, you need either street plates or an off-road sticker, not both so you should be golden.

    COG may be slightly higher than on a traditional 450. Their goal was to bring the center of rotating mass closer to the COG to make a 4 stroke handle more like a two stroke. It worked to a certain extent and I like the bikes. The FE390 is my favorite of the bunch. The bikes are pretty wide between your calves - felt a little funny to me in that respect, but it wouldn't stop me from riding one.

    I know that is true for state forests in Ohio with regards to PA, OH & MI plates (maybe others as well), but I thought you needed a separate sticker or tag for the national forests, each forest having its own pass. I haven't ridden Wayne, but I've had to pay a user fee to ride trails in other national forests.

    Oh man, don't anyone go thinking my list is official! I just threw it together quickly since someone asked. All are welcome.

    But yeah Solace, we can ride up together. I can meet you at UDF at 8 if you want.

    Hey Luke, you ever heard of Dayton Dirt Riders Club? It's south of Dayton in Moraine. They have 40 acres and I think they just charge a yearly membership fee for riding there. I emailed them but was wondering if you or anyone else that lives close to us have heard about them.

    I've riden it. Smiling John used to be the club president so he, myself, Pigtails and Crazy J rode it several times. It's small but is challenging with deep ravines, lots of roots and some real tight stuff. I prefer Hidden Springs even if it is muddier and has more ruts in the trails. I can find out who to caontact from John if you wanna join or visit sometime to check it out.

    Oh, btw I have no clue who those people are you mentioned. :huh
