    Hi all, just curious, didn't know this was there. Saw it on google maps. Is this private land, or can anybody go up there.

    Private land AND anybody can go.

    If the driveway is open, help (and behave) yourself. There was a box trackside w/ some forms and tip$ - optional.

    There is a sad story about the owner's son and a motorcycle.

    * I have not been there for a bit (last spring/early summer).

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to check that out some time. Looks like a good excuse for a group ride.

    Not me. Did do a little shooting though.

    When did you get that bike? 800 GS?

    Are you going to trade it for a 790?

    Hah! If I replace it, it will be for something lighter. Oldness + my light weight is telling me it’s time to think smaller.

    I showed your bike to my son today. He liked it, thanks for the info about it.
    He’s threatening to drag his Husky 510SMR to my house for me to ride/tinker with. Hmmm...
    Happy Holidays to everyone!

    (that's me, nodding, b/c I can hear you. I'm a fellow Pink Floyd fan, if that's what you were referencing. Happy new year all!)

    Why yes, yes it was.

    A buddy of mine has got it into his head that he and I should truck our bikes up to Budds Creek and ride there on one of their "open" days.

    Anyone here done this?
