    Unfortunately, there isn't anyplace around here to ride dual sport that I'm aware of. Most of my riding is street for lunch and a few hundred miles. :D When I want to dual sport, I head west, or north, and usually with some friends from the rough road riding portion of the Motorcycle Tourer's Forum (MTF). A really good bunch of folks on all brands of bikes and something you might enjoy. I'm sending you a PM with a link to a four day dual sport ride we did this past year and you can get a feel for what I'm talking about. Mostly guys in your age group that enjoy getting out and having a good time.

    Love the banter - glad to hear folks are still interested in the route. I need to make some changes and add some alternates. I hope to have a revised version out before the 4/1 opening of a lot of forest roads. Will respond to PMs requests for the route then :freaky.

    I watched it. nice stuff and exactly what I was hoping for. What's the deal with the gates you have to go around and all the signs at that particularly slippery spot? gates make me nervous.:ear

    A few posts back he said he's targeting the beginning of April to have some edits made. I'd love the tracks too as I'm trying to plan a trip to the area this year.

    Dear Dave,

    I got the tracks a year or so ago. Rode much of the BRT last summer and am planning to do iron mt. and surrounding area this summer. Should I get the spring 2014 edition of the tracks or are the changes too minor to worry about?

    Thanks for all your work.

    ps I would have pm'ed you about this but figure that others may have the same question.

    Dave,
    Pm sent to you a few days ago.
    A few of us Florida boys did the forest service roads of north Georgia, Carolina and East Tennessee for a week last March.

    We'd like to give your route a go this March.

    Thanks!
