    I love the Clear Lake SP as one of the CCC events stages there each spring. I am reluctant to hit any softer trails on the GS the KTM 200 is another story.

    Yep ROS for the last few years. I live along the MCCT south west of greater downtown Atlanta, so ride the trails here fairly often (yet not as often as I always wish I did!). Hopefully we can connect in a few weeks.

    Nope. I see a nice lawn coming in. I do see the blue sky through the trees though. That tells me there's a big hole over there. Be thankful we don't get all the guvment we pay for. :deal Git 'er done. It's time to ride.

    My aunt lives on East Twin Lake in Lewiston. Hope to be up that way around Labor Day and the following week. PM sent.

    So we made it back from our UPAT ride last weekend. Anyone doing any fall riding in the Tip?

    I'm getting closer. I planted the last bit of grass for the front yard. I still need to finish the retaining wall for the egress windows and clean up the garage. Maybe I will be riding in a couple weeks! 20170917_095001.jpg

    I think you need to take some time off from working on the house - riding season will quickly dwindle away! :^P

    I need to get these projects taken care of or I'll never hear the end of it.
    Besides, I've got proper gear. As long as there isn't snow or ice on the ground I'll still ride. Last time I rode was December 24th, 2015. :muutt

    Haha! I'm with you, but I want to continue living in this house. Once these projects are taken care of, I can ride whenever I want.
    Of course, the man cave project is going to start once daylight starts disappearing before 6pm.

    When the sun sets before 6, the snow and ice are not far behind. That's when I will start the bathroom in the garage(man cave facilities).

    KTM Mike and I got out for a ride Sunday. A little chilly, I think it got up to 41 degrees. Dressed for it, my face was the only part of me that got cold. Great ride with a lunch stop in Vienna Corners for burgers.

    And one of my dirty girl. Even after all the rain we received this week, the conditions weren't bad. Some mud puddles at the higher elevations. If you want a good burger be sure to stop at J & B's Bar in Vienna Corners. Yummy!

    We had a great time! One of these days maybe the Tip of The Mitt riders will include more than me and Chris! Here's a couple more pics.

    The Tip of the Mitt riders MotoChron and myself got in another (possibly last of the season) ride last weekend. Rain, cold, snow, mud, slick leaves = all fun. We rode some of Tomohawk C Loop, along with some dual sport stuff in the area. The last 30 to 45 minutes were getting a bit miserable, but it was a great time. Chris even got to see me drop the bike in a rather gnarly get off at a blazing zero MPH.

    Lots of trees down by the way.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
