    Are there any locals out there interested in rides for bigger bikes? I'm mid build on a BMW F650GS'YZ'Dakar conversion. The bike should get the good treatment with suspension once done. Not sure I'll be up for single tracking but hope it will handle well.... :freaky

    Yep. Watched some of the videos. Prretty nice riding. Big difference in bikes tho.... not much of a single track bike right now in stock form. We'll see how it can do once I put YZ250F forks on it and an Elka shock. :-) coming soon :1drink

    If it is too muddy, the single track will be impossible to ride. We will have to call it in the AM.

    I will only be able to be out from 10A -2PM.

    If you guys allow 2 strokes, I'm thinking I'll join you if that's allright. Just coming off an injury and the 990 may be a little too much.....
