    I am thinking about doing this enduro on the 12th. Anyone else interested?

    Are the enduros as hard as the Hare Scrambles with endless trails or are they more open with higher speed stuff? This one is 60 miles and I don't think I could do 6 laps on a Harescrambles course.

    Did a loop around Pickwick lake this past weekend. There are some great places to ride around that place. We were able to camp out right on the lake for free on TVA land and some of the county roads in AL would rival some of the Jeep trails I have been on! Good ride! I highly recommend it.

    First off welcome to ADV! Second if you would like to PM me your email address I will be happy to forward you my route and whatever maps I have of the area. I used some of Gaspipe's routes and some of our own that we explored. It was great! I would load some pics but I am a computer moron. I crash my computer a lot more than my bike!

    Is that all I have to do? That was easy...we ought to do this more often? I thought this would be a good central location since I don't know where everyone is coming from?

    RSVP here if your coming (Because if no-one can come I won't either) or if its just Josh_TN I may change the location and not tell him! :evil :lol3

    Places I'd like to ride to in the future Leonard's BBQ, Gus's Fried Chicken on Front street or better yet, Mason TN one! I'm sure there are others!

    I'm in. Rain or shine! :freaky


    I do have a question, which year are you speaking of? Because in my calender the 9th of March is on Monday this year. I will assume that you are speaking of Tesday March

    I'll have to catch you next time. I'll be riding in Arkansas next week. Good roads.

    Um. March 9 is Monday, but you said Tuesday. I can't make it either way, but I suggest you fix that. :eek1

    Josh, Pickwick! Pick a day. Let's do an overnighter. I'd like to loop the lake in the anticlockwise direction this time.

    Probably in my truck since I will have to swing by on my way home from work.

    Sounds like fun. I will check my calender and see when we could do it. My friend Justin(XR650R KIng) and I rode it counter clockwise and it was a blast. We grew up riding trails at Pickwick and love the area. I am always game to camp and ride! Enjoy AR be safe and mark the good roads!

    Currently I've got class only two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday. Rest of the week are more-or-less open, unless I happen to have something come up.

    I prefer to avoid the weekends, if possible. Would you happen to have a Sunday/Monday open?

    Much as I'd like to hook up, I am going to beg out due to it being the last chance I will get to do something after work while it is warm and sunny for a while. Skipping fun for a chance to wash the truck sounds stupid, but I am holding out hope that we still get to do the D/S ride in Arkansas this weekend.

    If you guys aren't on tnridereports.com join up. For some reason they don't let you lurk if you don't join. It's mostly trail riders and woods racers now, but we are trying to do some D/S rides in the Events section.

    I also got my form for the 2009 LBL D/S ride in September. This was a blast last year and this year it is a two day format. You get to ride all of the hiking/mountain bike trails, lots of gravel and dirt roads. The trails are fast, super clean and groomed with no ruts big obstacles or big hills. Last year a guy rode every inch of the ride on a stock 2008 KLR and there was everything from old twin shock XLs, BMW 650s, lots of two stroke KTMs and every variety of the 250cc D/S bikes like the TWs, CRF 230Ls and Super Sherpas. Mark your calendars and sock away your $100.00.

    Had a great time at dinner. Good conversation and great fish and chips! I think we should maybe do it once a month at least. Tuesdays are best for me, for what its worth.
