    The dirt is calling...

    After an unusually long hiatus, I'm toying around with idea of getting back on (into) the dirt. Don't even have a bike with knobbies on it.

    Just wondering if we have any local trails anymore? Is slades it?

    Considering a dr650 or xr650 for my future adventures.

    Besides Slades, there is Mr.Ts Hunt Club which I was told is ridden again (haven't been there since it was closed down) and the Tidewater Dirt Riders got their own riding lands after a good period without. But all 3 wouldn't be much fun on a 650 unless you are a bear that loves to wrestle a heavy bike?

    Both closed... Damneck was leased to a horse back riding company offering trail riding for a while and a few have been chased off. Don't know the exact status now but the owner didn't seem to tolerate bikes no more. Oceana pretty much the same, has some serious big signs on the property. All ppl I know stay clear of those lands...

    I think I might check out Charles city dirt riders on Sunday. They have a membership fee but have waived it for the remainder of the year. Just google them. Have a few tracks and single track. No atv

    I'll probably try them out at some point as well. Need a bike first!

    KTM 450... Nice Henderson! Where did your XR650 end up?

    When did that happen? That's less than a mile from my house and not a bad intersection. I fear that some bonehead ran through the flashing yellow left arrow and took out a bike. It's terrifying around here with the amount of people who just assume a flashing yellow arrow means "pull in front of anything"

    Yes he was, back in 2007. I haven't been there myself after that ... just recently heard about that place again.

    banter banter banter banter banter banter banter banter . Its getting cold. I wanna ride but have to replace the front end stabilizer links on my '03 Dodge 2500. Then one outer tie rod end. 16 spark plugs last weekend. Did get new batteries for the DL and DR from O'Reilly's. Their AGM Platinum battery. The post screws are longer and fit all my connectors.

    I've been riding locally a lot. Just nothing really noteworthy, so not much posting here. Brian's focus on fishing has let some steam out of this thread, yes. I'm getting my hip replaced this month and hoping to travel more next year.
