    Agreed. An awesome day to ride! Thanks for leading the route porcupine. I'm definitely in for a trip to Michaux State Forest

    Anyone got any plans for riding on the 17th?? I finally have a free Sunday! The above ride sure looked fun. I have a newly rebuilt shock with heavier spring on the KLR, so I would like to test it out.

    Hmmm. A St Patrick's day ride. How about a RTCB? (Ride To Corned Beef).

    I'm in if it involves food.

    I think John Deere green would be appropriate. I may actually have a can of that in my garage somewhere, just collecting dust.

    It was given to me by a neighbor that moved, so I think it meets the KLR financial standards (IT WAS FREE)! I don't even know if the spray can works. :rofl

    got ahold of Lee Ranger District today. Expected opening is March 25th. they don't put the dates on the website, so you have to call.

    Replacing the stock rear shock/spring on my Strom with a nice Elka 3-way tomorrow! Hopefully that will keep the rear end planted on bumpy dirt/gravel roads when I'm dodging flying gas cans. :)

    On the one hand, assisting VA.C. with his errant KLR parts and gas can on our ride was a great and noble thing...but in the big picture...all your really did was deprive the next cheap KLR rider to pass that way of a chance to get some "road farkles" :rofl

    Wish they'd bump that date up a couple days. This weekend's forecast looks like a good one to go play out there.

    They may postpone the opening even longer. The ground is pretty saturated out this way. Two more inches of snow overnight and more rain on the way won't make it any dryer either.
