    Looking for people to ride with in the Quad Cities area. I live in Moline, Illinois and I ride an XR650L.
    Ride safe

    I'm not in the immediate Quad City area....about 45 minutes north near Bellevue, IA. We've got some farm land (fields, pastures, and timber) to ride along with some scenic back roads. Let me know if your up in my neck of the woods sometime!!

    gotta go North as needed!

    But for the bikes, just throw some screws in the tires and go have fun. If the trail is 1/2 ice/snow and the rest frozen dirt...it still works. Sure the screws wear down but it takes awhile and they are relatively cheap. You don't need to go nuts with it like the ice racers to have fun.

    I love being a 95%er. We get the best selection of chips & dip that way.

    Yeah but being a 5%er means that sometimes the chip bowl is empty.

    Nice shot.

    Saturday looks decent. I'm going to go get lost on some gravel in Linn & Jones counties for a few hours in the afternoon and dirty my new bike up one more time.

    You have to leave your property for it to be official.

    A combination of trials and dirt bike riding doesn't count as DSing? We can tear up some of the adjacent landowner's property to qualify. I'm sure he won't mind.
