    Hey guys, I'm about to be moving to the Lancaster/Lexington area wanted to see how many other riders are around. Moving up from MS where we have a pretty active group of riders. Have a state and local tag going on and meet-ups pretty often. I've been watching the KY tag and noticed that it doesn't move to much. So, I'm just wondering how many riders there are and if there's any interest in any Lexington area photo tag games? I'm sure i'll be doing a lot of exploring in the future to learn the area and could always use some company.

    There is a thread on here about a ride out of Harrodsburg....that is very close to both Lancaster and Lexington. You should check it out. Doesn't appear that there are a lot of DS riders in the Lex area, but there are a lot of road riders. I know that there is some good DS riding in SE ky, but not sure there is much around the Lex area, might be why there doesn't appear to be much DS activity around the area.

    I do a lot of road riding so it would be cool to meet up with some locals for that. I haven't spent much time in the area but driving between Lancaster Danville and over the ky river it just seamed like there would be a lot of places, trails to explore if you followed along the river. Maybe i'm wrong. Anything east of Lexington around the national forest areas?


    i'll definately have to check out the Harrodsburg ride. thanks.

    There is a lot of good dual sport riding in the Daniel Boone NF. The best areas are between Irvine, Berea, Sandgap and Mckee.
    I like riding the STree and Turkey Foot areas.

    If you want to go further east the Red Bird Crest area is also nice

    All of the ORV trails are listed here:

    I live in Lawrenceburg just east of Lex. Here are a few local rides as well

    Hey all, I live in Danville and if weather looks good sometime over the next 2 weeks or so I was going to go hit up the Redbird Crest Trail in Eastern, KY. Anybody interested in coming along? It should be possible to do in a day from where I live, but a one nighter wouldn't be a bad idea. Around 2 hours there of easy county highways and I figure 4-5 hours or so on the trail (69 miles).
    If you're interested post up & pm me.

    Just checking in. Currently living in Lexington and always down for a ride. Enjoy some occasional gravel, creeks, and dirt back home on the farm in Eastern, KY but the only bike right now is a BMW R65. The Redbird Crest sounds fun! Got an extra bike?:D lol

    In all seriousness, I'm sure there are quite a few of us in the area, and it would be great to get together for a ride with some other folks.

    Hey, wound up moving to Hebron, KY instead of Lexington. Haven't been doing much riding up here yet, not to keen on icy back roads, but if anyone else is around the area or knows of some places between here and Lexington let me know. Wouldn't mind a good ride next time it's a nice day. Not doing to much on the dr650 but I'm dying to get the Buell out.

    Hebron! My old stomping grounds. Lived on Merrie Dr for 13 years, and in Burlington for 5 before that. I'm over east of there, in Pendleton Co. for the last 5 years now. PLENTY of GREAT road riding between where you and I are, and Lexington. Plenty more around Lexington. Some nice stuff over in SE Indiana as well. SE Indiana will give you more opportunity for DS riding than NoKy. Check in on the Cincinnati DS riding thread for more information about that. Dualsport ( Ray Pope ) lives over in West Harrison and can really give you some good information on riding DS all over the area. Looking at the 10 day weather forecast, it may be a while before I get the bike out of the garage. Looks like another cold snap on its way. But when the weather changes you can bet I'll be looking to get out and ride.....be more than willing to show you around.

    Time to change your location in your profile. :D

    You already got the best advice, you're more Cincinnati area than Lexington. You'll get closer rides checking out that thread over this one.
    I wanted to post in here just so I remember to check this thread from time to time. I'm west side Cincy, but also have a place in Somerset, Ky at lake cumberland. With the addition of the XR400 to the garage, I'll be looking to hook up on some rides in either location this coming summer. :clap
