    Anyone ever think of doing a WV off road tour? Tour using as many unimproved roads as possible. If interested lets get together over a few beers and start toputsomething together for next summer. Anyone in? I know " tour guide Bob" knows a lot of riding so we could probably put something together.

    I know riderwv and jtucker have a good route and I am sure we can come up with something. Bob knows areas in the NF and he can get us from Charleston to Summersville and I also hear that there are good places out of Gauley Bridge.
    On another note I got stopped when I went out for a short ride. All of Boyer woods are posted now and there were state troopers on Sugar Camp road, one mentioned to me the posted signs and I mentioned that the road we were on was a county road to Tuckers Branch. They were cool with it being that I had a tag on but I believe there are going to be a lot of pissed off hunters tomorrow because that is who they watching for. They were asking if I saw any ATV's or side by sides.

    If they started banning ATVs and SXS where I live, no one that has multiple DUIs would be able to get around.
    And that is why I have not tagged the EXC, if the (mostly) low life, drunken, welfare bums can ride around on 4 wheels with no tags. Then I don't need them either.
    Not like I would stop anyway:evil

    I have dirt from where I live to south of Dolly Sods, and lots of routes around my house.
    Jeff knows a lot of them, most are not hardcore off road stuff but are a lot of fun with some great views.

    I did a bicycle tour from Sutton and over to Va, down to white sugar springs and on about 14 years ago. We went through Daily and into the mountains on FS roads and it was a great week. Would like this ride to be simular but a little harder than FS roads if possible. We will get some thoughts together.

    Sounds pretty much like what we have here in Upshur Co. Nothing too serious for the most part, but I've found out the hard way that while you can ride what we have on something heavier than a 450/530 EXC it's not nearly as much fun.

    I am in hunting camp with very limited web access. TWVT was rolled into the TET. If you'll fill out the form on the second post of the TET thread, I'll hook you up later in the week.

    Anyone within a few hours of SlatyFork have or know of someone with a 4wd 4 Wheeler for sale for a good deal? My brother wants to get one for plow purposes and hitting the trails behind his cabin. I'm getting a TW to bring up there but he wants 4 wheels. Figured it may be worth asking here. Happy Thanksgiving!

    No they wouldn't, swore that there was nothing wrong with it. They completely went over it, and it wasn't leaking.
    Except for the pint of coolant that I was missing every 200 or so miles. :huh

    That I was told evaporated while the bike was sitting, since it's parked a lot. But it was never low while sitting, only after I rode it.

    I would have done it myself, but didn't feel comfortable doing it. And Britt has the tools and experience.

    With my work schedule, it would have been taken apart and then sit for a month while I was out of town.
    Guess I need to get used to working on my stuff more, since it is a wasted trip to tote it to Morgantown
