    I wouldn't mind meeting up with you guys at Karick, but my dirt riding day is going to have to be Sunday. I will probably head to Mossy and meet up w/ Rotorhead and whoever else shows up...

    No,,,,,,,,,,,, orange really won't work for me.

    And yea,,,its early all right.

    So early,,,,Morris sits down with his breakfast and immediatly shares it with the rest of us.:lol3

    [​IMG]

    We swing by and pick up Nick in Dadeville and reach Cheaha about 8'ish and offload to go on the route scouting trip.
    Great weather up there saturday!

    Ride a dim,dim trail that use to be a CCC road built to reach Mt. Cheaha back in the 1930's.
    A beautifully crafted stone bridge is on this route:

    Primarily this trip was to explore 4 possibilities of adding some new stuff.

    Was successful in 2 areas.
    Gates and dead ends (lying GPS topo software) put a end to the other 2 places.
    Over all, we had a great day of riding with only one hickup. At one uphill, Bill got careened off the trail and smacked a tree. After picking the bike back up it, the starter wouldn't engage. Thinking it was possibly one of the safeties, they one by one were eliminated and still no crank.

    While troubleshooting, Dreadman (owner of the Bamarides site) drove up on his KLR and talked with us a bit.
    [​IMG]

    He has a fantastic motorcycle website, and he did a tiny interview/video of us while working on Bills wiring problem. Maybe we'll be infamous on the Bamarides website when he gets back from the Talladega Forrest weekend campout/ride.:wink:
    EDIT HERE IS THE VIDEO LINK WITH THE TINY INTERVIEW OF US THAT DREADMAN MADE:

    Copper Penny Dual Sport Ride and Camp in Cheaha 2012 on Vimeo



    He and his buds were camping out and he was on his way back to the campsite. We talked a bit and he invited us (YOU) to drop by and visit their booth at the Barber Vintage Days event. Look for their place in the flea market section.

    Meanwhile,,,Nick noted the headlight looked a little crooked behind the shroud. After removing the numberplate/headlight shroud the problem was discovered:

    A bit of fixing and we're off again.

    Dinner time and we grab a really really really good burger at the Old Mill Restaurant

    Rider on the KLX is Mulley.

    Mentioned to Mulley I enjoyed reading the report where he and Swamp rode the back country of Cambodia.

    Thanks Tony for scouting out some cool history, looking forward to Cheaha.:thumb


    Got a late start due to weather concerns, turned out just about perfect for riding, we did get a little wet at the end:D. Did 65 miles today with Steve (thanks for helping me set the sag), loving the new bike.

    Great post Tony!!! :clap
    ReidinItaly, Rotorhead and I had good session out at Mossy this morning. Very little rain fell on us, but we still had the benefit of some firm sand and really enjoyed the outing. Wet roots and downed trees were a little interesting for those of us with limited coordination skills but everybody survived intact.:D

    I am definitely interested in the Cheaha Run...:freaky
