Thanks for the info!
Evening Bill, good to see another rider here.
Darrell hit the nail on the places to visit in Southern Indiana and Hardin Ridge is the place to camp.
Rode the Loose Nut in the LBL last year and while it's a great area I don't care for the long drive.
Southern Indiana is a lot closer and has endless good riding and places to see IMO, I ride down there more than I do up north these days.
Your AT would be the perfect ride down there this time of year.
I'm near Allegan, let me know if you would like to ride sometime.
Yeah, I'm leaning towards Hoosier NF area for that same reason - a shorter drive.
If I end up staying put (still confirming schedule with wife.....), are you guys out riding this weekend? Firearms season is over then, and the woods are safe once more
I' m heading north this weekend to ride singletrak/dualsport Saturday and Sunday.
Riding north from M20 trailhead Sat on singletrak to Nichols lake then dualsport to BITELY for gas/food then backtrak.
Sunday may dualsport to Baldwin, not sure yet.
First up north singletrak ride on a new to me KLX.
You might also like Parke County, IN which is immediately West of Indy about 1 hour. Has lots of nice twisty dirt roads and covered bridges, pretty hilly. It is where the Ride or Die events start each year out of Terre Haute. Not as far South as HNF but fun to ride in. Pretty much undeveloped land along the Wabash River and it's tributaries.Roads all suit your big ADV bike. Lots of riders down there. Contact Indiana Bones on here and maybe you could get some company. Tell him Jeff from Michigan said to call. Parke County has most covered bridges of any county in US.
Allegan County Snowmobile Routes are officially open.
I did a trail sweep and some corner grooming to make sure everything is clear for the snow boys & girls.
Very nice Darrell, I like that tractor tire you're running in back.
I’m digging the instrument cluster and nav tower. Add a road book and you’re ready for Dakar.
Thinking of changing my mirrors out (currently have cheap Koso Ebay ones that aren't Convex, drives me nuts). Anyone using the 'Double Take' brand? Likes? Dislikes? I'd hate to spend $106 and be disappointed.
Did a little riding in Allegan on Sunday.
Hey lostK9, we saw you at the Speedway gas station filling up.
It sure was a great day to ride the Allegan woods!
Best option I could find. Beat the heck out of them with branches and tree trunks and haven't been able to break one yet. Slammed them into the ground repeatedly on my 450 with no breakage. There is a fine line in how tight to have the thumbscrew to allow some movement during contact with objects at speed to prevent breaking the mount off the handlebars, and having it too loose that bumps and tiny branches move them around too much. I've been moving them from bike to bike for quite a while now with no issues. Used them on a sled also and they worked great.
Me too, looking for mirrors, that is. What do you suggest for an XRL, Enduro or Adventure?
The enduro was all they had back when I got mine. Looks like the Adventure is marketing towards the dirt road larger GS type crowd with the larger size mirror. I mostly use mine to make sure that the guy behind me on the trail is still there so clarity is not really an issue. Riding the dual sport trails with the 450 KTM on the GLDS routes makes me think the bigger ones would get hit all that more often so I wouldn’t want those. On my GS, maybe.
Yes I thought that was you. It was a good day to be out.
Ram mounts+ Doubletake mirror is expensive but only way to go IMO. By the time you broke 3 cheap mirrors you have the price of Doubletake in. Shop around... Price varies all over the place. $106 is way high. More like $65. But I only run left side too.
I use the round Doubletake with the short stalk BTw.
I like the folding Ken Sean mirrors. They are pretty good and don't break the bank.
