    I would like to know more about this trail too. You talk about a train wreck in the other post for this trail, what is that? I do lots of research and exploring old rail road grades.

    Cool! Looks like I could ride the Sandhills Gamelands trails almost all the way to Laurinburg and then pick that up. It looks similar to what I ride in the Game lands.

    I have a '96 Nighthawk and a '96 Savage. My "dream" bike has alwys been a R1200GS.....until I saw the first pics of the F800GS.... Now I may have a more attainable dream. Worsst case I will "settle" for a new KLR. I can't wait to be able to go off the pavement.

    BigMaggot has taken me through a small bit of the game lands, it was way more powder sand than what is on the RobCo.

    Yeah, it is a very fun trail, I try and ride a bit of it everyday :D

    I have a SV650s, Concours (The old one), and EX500 and of course, my DR650. Something for every road.
    Not sure what I will ride tomorrow, unless there are definate plans for some particular type of ride - Street or dual sport.

    Great to meet you all. That tuna sandwich really was awesome.
    Sorry not to ride with youafter lunch, but I was in my least appropriate wet weather gear, and got home just as it opened up on me.
    Thinking of riding tomorrow when the rain stops. Anyone?

    I think that a good time was had by all. I know I certainly did. It was great putting the names with the new faces. We need to do this again "shortly".:beer

    Nice to meet you M & MM. I had a great time today at the Hell's Kitchen Pub. You missed a nice ride. We missed rain most of the time by going the route we did but you would have run into it eventually.

    Tomorrow I am working around the house and catching up with the missus. Another time for sure.

    Thanks for leading three BMW's on your KLR. :lol3 :thumb River road was nice today...looks like some sand trails to check out in the future. :wink:

    Yep, we need to make Hell's Kitchen the official pub of the WARDS of the State.

    Eight inmates today on short notice so I think it was a resounding success. :thumb
