Looking to do a full day of riding on Oct 15th.
Smaller bikes preferable - Meet at the Wawa
Will a 250cc 25 horsepower bike be small enough?
Have pencilled in the date....
Bought Shinko 804/805's for my DR650 today. Next think is going to be bark busters and some waterproof pants. After that I should be decently prepared for some good riding.
FYI guys: Scrub Pine Enduro will take place Oct 15 in Brendan Byrne State Forest.
Where and what time are you meeting? I have a 9am conference call. If the start is Atsion, I might just make it or hook-up with you a little later.
How about Atsion at 10:30 a.m.? All bikes welcome, but I'll be on the little one.... Got some good stuff to do on West side of 206 if folks are interested.
So, that's tomorrow, Friday, October 6, 10:30 a.m. at Atsion Ranger Station.
p.s., weather looks good:
Sounds good. I just sent you a pm.
Cool! See you there.
I'll be there.
Thanks for joining us, Al. Great 4 hour ride in the 100 acre farm!
Here's a little video:
Doc, you really need a go pro
This was recommended after your video ended. Very funny. LINK
That's my I-phone, mounted as a GPS on the bar, and I'm sticking too it!
If it were clearer, then the tree-huggers would go crazy, and the enduro guys would yell at me!
Sometimes, fuzzy is good!
p.s., the bike sounds good, huh?
Actually, I liked "Van Life Morning Routine" from Australia better. Al, Bill, this one is for you (check out the shower scene!):
p.s., do your wives know that this is what it's like when you guys go off in your Toy Haulers?
We know what phone it is, for someone who talks about picture composition its just poor. You can continue to post your vids, but who really wants to see the sliver of your windscreens and a fraction of the trail you have selected----just saying
Bob, I have an easy solution for you.... don't look at my videos!
p.s., seriously, I've been trying to do videos for many years. Started with tape, then digital, etc. And I do have a GoPro camera. Unfortunately, I don't have any videography talent, and the most important part, editing, is time consuming and frustrating. I'll leave the videos to the experts. Mine just document a nice section of ride. That road, which was double track and I believe legal, had grass on it, so it wasn't traveled that much. Thought it was interesting. My apologies.....
What Wawa in Nj..I'm down Delaware way.
8:30 as usual?
I'm using D606's front and rear on my 2016 Africa Twin. Front is noisy on the street, but works fine for me as I take it easy on the roads and it's been great offroad. Was just in the Pine Barrens this weekend and was very happy with how they performed even on my 575 lb bike.
@Stannis - Since I don't think anyone has mentioned it recently, I also highly recommend the Dirt 101 class in Nesco, NJ. Aside from being a great class, you also get a great guided tour through many of the dirt roads in the area, as well as talking about their hard work in preserving the area. No substitute for learning in the environment that you want to ride in. I attended the class this summer and can't say enough good things about the experience. Mike and Jack do a great job.
Speaking of Jack's Adventure School, and doing a pivot from another tire thread, here are some photos from today's advanced class:
The 1090 to the right is Mike Lafferty's bike!
The woman in the background races enduros. At the last Scrub Pine Enduro, she won the tire changing contest, getting the tube changed, tire inflated, and back on the front of her bike in 6.5 minutes. Almost as fast as a Nascar Pit stop! And that's our MoBill in the camouflage outfit!
