    :D

    I had a blast today. I shook the cobwebs off the xr650r. Im really rusty, and I plan on putting on alot more dirt miles every weekend.

    I did 65 miles today of trails. Another rider whom you might know as Xsquiggy was there.

    I was sopposed to meet xsquiggy at a parking lot to show him the secret, place, but it turned out he got there late. So we started without him.

    Alan, Frank, Chuck were already there. Chuck was pimping a brand new 250x. Supa cool. That bike looks very nice.

    I started out leading, I don't know why, Chuck knows the pits better than I do. But its always fun leading, going in and out of trails, getting lost, riding around in the woods only to find out that you cannot move anymore, and need to back a 300lbs out of the thick brush.. Its always fun.

    This is my bike trailering device, A honda carrying a honda.

    Frank on the xr400, frank just started riding. But is getting more comfortable on the bike. He used to ride a xr650l, and he rode in very tight conditions. He prefers the xr400 :D

    This kid was unbelievable on that 110cc bike. I hope that he starts racing, because he has some major biking talent.

    Took a wrong turn, and ended up burying the bike in a puddle.

    After the tunnel, you need to go up on this. Aim to the left, because there is a hole in the concrete that can cause some harm if you fall in. The morning was excellent. But later on in the day, alan fell in.

    Nice pics! I see you're not far from Clarksville MD. My best friend from here in Richmond is about to move up there (against my advice ) and is planning on selling his KLX400 (DRZ-S) thinking there was no place to ride and nobody to ride w/. If he keeps it I'll have to hook him up w/ y'all.
