    Nightster, Jeff is planning on coming in from Pa. next weekend. Weather permitting, he is going to ride his KLR in. We plan on hitting some backroads and trails somewhere. If your not busy plan on going. We will most likely ride Friday. If its not to bad we may even camp somewhere, and ride Saturday also.Not sure about that yet.
    Anyone else that wants to go is welcome. The more the better. :D

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllll, I took a pic of his head last night....he has blood blisters on the side of his forehead and there are several more back in his hair line under his hair...He has had headaches all night and today and bending over isn't a fun thing to do--he said it hurts his head to move! I think he has a concussion-but I'm no doctor. He obviously got his bell wrung pretty good. I'm glad John was with him. He just left for a 12 hour shift of work---we'll see how he fairs...

    Check out Shoei's version of the Arai XD. Costs a lot less, and has a cool beak for those days you just want some goggles. http://www.shoei-helmets.com/road/product_launch_hornetds.aspx

    I have two - the full face Shoei for the road, and a MX helmet for DS riding. I'm going to pick up the new Shoei for DS'ing and most road riding. I found the Shoei fits me better than the Arai does.

    Greetings,

    I'm heading out to Snowshoe on Friday and taking my XR 650 L with me to hopefully ride on Saturday. The weather isn't looking particularly promising, but I keep my fingers crossed.

    Cheers

    I figure it was. I was thinking that the water would be way up, with all the rain. Kinda thought it would be fun. :evil Anyway I get outta here at 6 o'clock and plan on flying home so I can atleast get an hour of daylight riding in. When are you going back to work?

    The trip home was to say the least interesting. I went the route you and I talked about, thru Sugar Creek into Arvilla, and down Mt. Carmel. The roads weren't to bad, a lot of water and and some mud. I was feeling pretty good about myself, so I decided to speed up and blast thru some water. You know how it is.:evil Anyway about a mile and a half before I droped down onto Middle Island Creek I come around a turn and there, parked in the middle of the road taking a piss is a couple of guys. :asshat at least pull the freaking truck of to the side of the road. Just barley got stoped without laying it down. Once I pryed my seat out of my ass, took a couple deep breaths and recited the lords prayer. I was good to go. I thought. Anyway, it seemed as though ever turn I came around there was some form of wildlife that had a death wish. Deer (by the dozen's), cats, and one very large dog who thought he wanted to have some TKC 80 for dinner. Instead all the mut got was a mouth full of gravel :lol3

    All I can say is I learned a few lesson's tonight. Deer are the dumbest animals in WV, drunks dont care were the piss, and dogs dont like gravel in their teeth. I cant complain to much though, after all I did get to ride.

    Kinda late, but I'll be tooling around the Canaan, Dry Fork, Glady area tomorrow on the KLR. If anybody wants to hook up, drop me a line.

    Might take the trout pole along with me... Just in case the natives get restless :evil

    Well Jeff rode in from Pa. on Thursday, and with temps. being in the upper 50's today we decided to hit the road. We rode about 70 miles of primarly gravel and dirt roads. We did manage to get into several water crossing's even though the water was up which was nice. Here are a few pics.

    First order of buisness was gas.

    Doesn't look to bad. Jeff doesn't agree.

    I made it thru okay, Jeff though....well lets just say he went off the deep end.:rofl

    Ugh...

    With a little help we got him back on dry land. Note to self... March H2O is COLD!

    We made a little pit stop at Reeses country store for some good hotdogs and a coke.

    Once we got back we had to do a little adjusting on Jeff bike. Skid plate must have taken a whack and nerf bar adjustment was needed.
