    how's it going folks? my name's jamie. i'm currently riding a 2006 XRL.

    i'm looking for some boston-based riders to do some dual-sporting with. sign into this thread or shoot me a PM if you'd like to head out for some weekend rides...preferably those that involve dirt roads/trails.

    Hey guys,

    I'm just north of boston and am always looking for other riders. I was planning on hitting freetown state forest or gilbert hills in the coming weeks anyone interested? Other than that the only thing local I hit are high tension wires, north eastern's burlington campus has some good off roading, and I know a few other local areas.

    Yeah, I'm up for a ride on sunday. North eastern will probably be pretty muddy, I haven't ridden there since October, anyone else ever been?
    But I'm up for what ever, I just wanna ride.
    My KLR needs new sneakers, but I'll attempt the mud anyway.

    we don't have to ride anything too crazy...as long as we get a little dirt in. it'd just be good to make some introductions to one another, take a spin, maybe get some grub and talk shop. maybe lay out some future trips.

    alright, how about this. folks from around boston/newton/cambridge, let's meet at greater boston motorsports at 9am on sunday. we can wait around for folks to show up for a bit and then head north to find some dirt.

    i'm hoping/assuming at least one of us has a dirt route we can ride :lol3

    here's my number: 617-877-3597

    hopefully that time's alright. let's make it happen!

    GF changed from a BBQ to breakfast, I think I'm sunk too!!!

    BTW I rode around the area above Northeastern (Burlington) yesterday and it looks like they've tightened up the perimeter quite a bit. If you get in, you might want to stay clear of the airstrip for the remote controlled planes. It's usually very busy on Sunday's.

    I think we should all get together and compare notes on places we can ride.
    I'd be happy to offer my house in Lexington as a meeting place.
    It'd be fun to see the looks on the neighbor's faces when you guys come riding in!

    I'll try to get an exact location of the power lines I road in Chemsford last year. It's not long but at least it's dirt!
