    :lol3 true. I meant in the sense of the kind of people that go down there and the fact that I know some trails that have holes that will swallow trucks and just look like puddles

    After a bit of confusion I got the 44t sprocket on my Street legal wheel and tire setup. The first one I got I ordered for a drz400 and it came in and didn't fit.

    After a bit of research it turns out it is actually a KTM rear hub. Returned the one for the drz hub and bought the proper one.

    Now I'm ready for some longer rides!

    Ruh roh 'Raggy! It looks like the old chain is too long for the new street setup. Looks like I have to take out some links.

    Took two links out of the chain and it works great now. Now I'm ready for street shenanigans.

    Just catching up on the forum, that bridge crossing has gotten sketchy over the last few floods. The Brookville track i put together and PM’d them to a couple inmates. If anyone is scooting around the area and wants to ride let me know. I recently put another route together in southern indiana that turned out to be a blast. 140mi+ loop that ends in Brookville. Some pics from the ride..... how ya been KBowling?!

    That looks awesome! I would for sure be in. We should try to put something together where we can all meet up and ride one weekend when it gets warmer.

    I got out for a couple hours today and did some urban exploring around Dayton today. I got to get some solid seat time in on the drz and gained a lot of confidence on it.

    Hey guys I have decided to start a Facebook group to help link together dual sport and supermoto riders in the Dayton area to help find people to ride with, share knowledge and experience, or help find an extra set of hands to help wrench on a bike. If any of you all are interested here is the link.

    And that is the million dollar question. As of now it looks pretty good in Dayton. 59° mostly sunny 10% chance of rain.

    Ill be riding the drz with no real plans or destination . Just getting seat time sounds good to me. You know i could always ride southern indiana though.

    I plan on getting out on the DRZ but I have to be back home in Dayton by 15:00 so I'll probably try to stay somewhat local.

    I'm not sure yet. I still have to get the V-Strom ready for winter too. I'm thinking about going and running around the Caesars Creek area but no real plan.
