    I could ride Sunday. Otherwise maybe we could get an after-work ride together...though that would probably not be enough time to ride the HOCAT if that's what you're talking about.

    Any of you willing and able to give me a tire changing class tomorrow? I got a flat on my DR a couple weeks ago and have pinched 2 tubes trying to fix it. I want someone to watch and instruct me as I do the job. I'll bring the wheel to you or you can come to my house.

    I'm open all day tomorrow. Can bring a 6 pack or pizza or something if you wish.

    Mellow mushroom?

    I can help you for free but you might have a 3rd pinched tube. I've only had to do 1 or 2 and it sucked. But FWIW I'm here for ya. I got the tools and a compressor. Just need a rim, tire, and tube.

    Bring bike and tube to Wambaw tomorrow, we'll fox it between laps. I'm in Black Ford F150, KTM 450EXC. Should be there late AM if I can motivate Brad to get moving.
    843-224-2496. I keep a spare tube just in case.

    I don't believe he has a trailer to bring said bike and tube to wambaw. I may be wrong.

    Are you sure it hasn't already been closed to night riding?
    (I thought the host told me it has.)

    Yup, as I thought. Big Al just responded to my text saying yes it is closed to everyone except those who are camping up there. He locks the front gate each night now.
    If more people cared and bitched about it, CORRA might be able to convince them to reverse the decision. :ace

    Crap, I'm going too fast here.
    He just responded again with a clarification: It is still open to night riding. The only request is that y'all need to be respectful of campers who might be sleeping.

    Planning on getting a morning ride in. Prob will leave james island around 0930 headed towards wambaw if anyone wants to join. I could be talked into alternate rides if wambaw doesn't suit your bike or plans.

    Anyone have GPX/KML files for the trails so I can throw them in the GPS? Or even tracks from a recent visit?

    Ha, don't own either of those bikes. My current big HD is a '12 Road Glide that I've had for 2+years, traded the Street Glide in December '11 and got the Road Glide.

    Sold the XR1200 and the DR650 this past July and picked up a '14 KTM 690 E/R.
