    We rode 640 miles in 3.5 days at 5 Trail Heads :ricky

    Awesome place :D

    Weather is too cold & unpredictable in winter time. This Mike also votes for Spring :nod

    Go during the week to avoid the Quad traffic :deal

    Rockhouse Lodge in Man WV gets my vote as place to stay :clap

    Did you get the officer's name? I sure hope I don't run into this guy.

    There are so many things legally wrong with the way that officer handled that situation he needs to be reported so that if nothing else he gets proper training. That is a serious breech of the public trust and should not go unreported.

    I didn't get his badge number, I can't remember his name, and honestly I'm just glad to be let go. At this point I'm really considering leaving this state, the lack of places to ride a dual sport bike other then loops at pay resorts, or ohv areas, Plus being harassed by LEO and land owners.

    Thanks Flux...that's what I figured. I'm at the point where I'll try just about anything on the 690. It's easy to pick up :lol3

    Now *that* I don't envy. Reminds me I need to put some webbing in my trail kit.

    The hatfield-mccoy stuff looks awesome. Spring road-trip!

    I here ya, but I was on a public road, then after was told to ride the trails back to my house, was in non posted area. Which if i was detained or arrested for trespassing I wouldn't be on a public forum complaining about it.

    :rofl damn I was figuring on some smart ass banter but you took my smart ass banter very well like, a humble guy
    this just kinda legitimizes your story to me ( not that my opinion means shit form shit )
    I agree with the rookie approach because most gsp are usually ok as far as cops go!

    Hope to see around:D

    Did anyone on here sell a bike like this (1984 XL600 ) last Fall to a guy named Steve. Would of had somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 miles at the time. Steve is selling one now that he bought last Fall from a guy that sounded like an ADVrider in the area. Just looking for some history of the bike - rebuilds, etc.

    Anyone know about these bikes in general? Common issues etc?

    The one for sale has 14,000 miles now, which sounds like a lot to me for a thumper?? The engine feels very solid, though.

    (Not the actual bike)

    :wave Hey Patti, the 950 is my daily rider. If I ride it off-road, it will be torn up like my old 640. Then Flux would have to part it out for me. :cry Thanks I hope to be back soon, looks like all the outlaw riding has gone to Hell. :deal

    They wheelie very well... :evil

    Just getting broke in. As opposed to the newer KTMs which seem to be broken around the same mileage.....

    Funny! I used to wheelie the shit out of one back in the day. :D Can't remember the mileage, but never had any problems with it. I was racing more than dualsporting back then though, and all our outlaw riding was on a real dirt bike. :wink:
