    I don't know about riding even though it is raining. It is supposed to storm the day before too. The creeks will be dangerously high if we get two days of storms. The deepest crossing could easily be 2 feet deep and swift. That equals a recipie for disaster imo.

    cody is right, the first creek we will have to cross after a not so verry big rain, i have seen will most likely be 3 feet deep. thats what it is most of the time after a rain. now thats fun on my atv, but not verry fun on my drz..:D

    well....starting to look more like rain on the weekend. If rain/high waters starts making sundays ride look doubtful....would our guide be willing to do saturday if it looks like we can get ahead of the rain?

    thats a really good question man.

    i wish i could move it up a day. unfortunately, on ride weekends it is a trade off. one day of honey do and daddy do and one day of riding. i already have saturday booked.

    i will flirt hard with the wife and see if that can be an option in the future, but i absolutely cant this saturday.

    That is a good idea man, and we might can do that sometimes. but im like cody this weekend..(would be kinda hard for me to do at this time also) Just looking over the weather,and it looks bad saturday also. But we have alot of nice rideing days to come soon. I really think you guys will like this ride so hang in there,surely it cant storm every weekend.:D There now saying there is a bit of danger in this weekends storm. it only seems to get worse as the weekend nears. hang in there guys....we will get to ride soon. and im gona take plenty of photos and video !!:evil

    Sorry Guys. Sunday Apr 25 in cancelled. The creeks will be way too unruly on Sunday to ride safely. I rolled the schedule forward, so the next ride on May 9 will be Gravel NOT Pavement.

    I can miss the mud. Let's think about trailering up Sunday AM, we could start in the hwy 68-80/Canton area on road # 153.

    If it happens, here's an open invitation for any tag-alongs. I'd suggest a light, non-street tire bike.

    What if we just ride the bikes to that Cheatham area behind the rifle and archery ranges. There's a couple of really fun roads back there, and more that need exploring on one of the edges just outside the Cheatham area. No need to trailer that way.... just throwing out ideas...

    hope to see ya guys at the next ride. i vote we ride rain or shine on the next one. (so long as the creeks are not crazy high) this weekend they were like 3 feet above normal, and that would suck ass to wipe out in! But a nice rain is always fun to ride in! (i love my rain sute):D but the DRZ is still not a jetski...:lol3

    I have seen codys V look like one ! (or was that a bull dozer) hehehhehe
