    Don't forget the Ob-stac-kills! We need some log stacks and 1/2 burried tractor tires maybe even a greased up wooden bridge or teeter totter...or somethin. We need to put in some hero sections :evil Of course, I'll be the first to perform a dynamic get-off / faceplant I'm sure. This kid's skills (what little I had) are rusty! Boss thinks I should train over here on an haji bike. Those bikes are designed for "doods" who ride in sandals, pajamas and weigh a buck-o-five soakin wet. However, it might be just what I need to hone my bike ninja skillz...

    I'm thinkin more like some paved sections with flowers and those little elevated water coolers like we have everywhere in DijonCary so the walkers keep from fainting and getting their $200 Asics scuffed up.


    When are we going to see that Hooska varina again?

    You hit the nail on the head,YOU AIN'T SHOWING UP ENOUGH.

    Flowers huh??I don't know,sounds like a maintenance nightmare.I can see the guys stopping in the middle of a bed of daisys ,and waiting on the next dood so he can roost him with flowers.:lol3

    Tony,we have some pretty good log crossings now[natural fallage],but 90% of the guys go around them.:ddogI even set up a gauntlet at one of them with caution tape,I get to the end,and here comes somebody[Plumbinfool]wiith tape wrapped around his back wheel.You can forget about trying to get all 10 guys over a greased tractor tire.:lol3Does a pile of motorcycles count as an obstical????????:D:ricky

    TB, The 2010 HS track runs with the grain doesn't it? Maybe use the 2010 parts that we like with some sections from the 2011. Seems the 2011 used some of the 2010 course in reverse.

    Guys are probably just now speaking up cause of me the "instigator". You know how I like to ride the HS courses. Maybe we could put together a friendly HS time trial format...start 1 min apart and run it for time. Having a minute man ahead and behind always makes you push a little harder than if you're just out ridin the course.

    As for obstacles...have Mike and the guys build an enduro cross course. :evil I think that would be a cool thing for guys to watch or ride when hanging around the trucks. Also wouldn't be so far to haul some broke dood's bike or body when the inevitable happens.

    A53 update...CFO helped me cut some more trail this am. Think you guys are going to like it.

    Gettin off the computer and going riding now.

    Hey Y'all,
    Can you point me to some easy dirt trails in the triangle area for some large Adventure Touring bikes?
    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Seriously?

    Unfortunately, you are about 25 years late. Everything has been paved and more every day is going that way.

    The closest "trails" are at NCMP which has about 8-9 miles. Outback is a really nice place and a good group. It is a little farther.

    Neither of these are big bike friendly, IMO.

    You can take your chances on Power lines, but honestly, we have exhausted looking for that type of riding.

    Even finding a gravel road is going to net something 1/2 mile long.

    Sorry. Smaller bike and the options open up a lot.

    You are welcome anytime if you want to give it a go with the big bike.

    Heading farther south towards Sanford and Southern Pines will get you some dirt and sand roads(More than enough for a day ride)
    Next closest FS roads are towards Morganton and Blowing Rock(Awesome riding)
    You can ride from here to Uwharrie and hit some FS roads in that area and ride some of the EASY trails there. Pick wisely!!!!!

    Some events are starting to have relatively mild "Enduro Cross" sections with logs and tires. I think at one they were even going to have a Volkswagon to go over, but I think that fell through. Most of these are preceded by a split in the trail and you can bypass the action but have to go a longer distance and incur a time penalty if you bypass.

    Never heard of frames being damaged from logs. All you need is a light skid plate for rocks and such to keep from puncturing the soft aluminum engine case from a rock being kicked up or something. I went to a light plastic quick release skid plate on my old KTM and it was plenty of protection. Plastic on the Husaberg, too.

    Don't worry, your bike will survive whatever you can throw at it just fine, and then some, it's our old bones that need the protective plating. :lol3
