    Well, you guys can fight over who gets to stay in the RV and who gets to stay in the trailer. One of the reasons we're having hookups in the garage bays.

    I want one also.

    I thought it had the WR125 motor in it (unless they all share the same motor).

    I didn’t realize that was Jake. The sand plume hid the smoke cloud.

    Couple of my buds heading to windrock on 12/8. Never been there myself, I understand there is lots off tech. rocky single track.
    They say it's best to have a local to to show you the good stuff.

    There is secret singletrack there. The guy putting it in does the TKO and he has several training loops. He has presmission from Windrock to put the trails in but I don't think they are on the maps yet.

    Close by is CMRA, there is a ton of tough singletrack there and a few easy loops.

    I think I have his number, I'll check my phone and text it to you.

    CMRA is a private club but they have days when the public is welcome. It is pretty cool, ATVs are not allowed, 2 wheels only.

    I rode my KLX 250 last year at Laurel fork with a couple Big BMW’s . As expected I could not keep up with them on the dirt roads but I fully expected to have the advantage when we got to some gnarly single track. Wow did I get schooled. Those bikes where like tractors in the mud and the guys did an impressive job maneuvering those beast in the tough stuff. I’m an experienced small bike rider but since then I got a whole new level of respect for those big beemers.
