    Lol. I'm impressed with these Kenda Big Blocks so far. They handle pretty well on the street. Should get some off-road in this afternoon

    As we ran into quite a few hunters out there last Saturday, we will meet Sunday 1030am at Sheetz 2902 S Seminole Trail, Madison VA 22727. ClutchDumpinDan is bringing cheddar dogs and his grill again!

    Instead of going to Howertons, VA, I went the opposite direction and got lost somewhere near Cunningham Falls State Park, Md.

    That ride, minus the giant mud hole, looks like a nice scenic ride - I am in for those on my 990! For heinous stuff, I will bring my 525 from now on...

    I was encouraged to post my trip in this thread, so here it goes:

    Looking for partners in crime, to ride the Sleepy Creek Lake trails in WV or the gnarly trails of Patuxent Ponds Park, MD.

    I ride a 1200GS and am planning to leave from Springfield, Sunday morning. The ride to any of these two destinations is fun, and the trails are awesome!

    I have ridden the basic trails in Sleepy Creek, but not the ones in the Patuxent. I stumbled on the latter one last weekend and was delighted to see such trails close by.

    We're more willing to take challenging trails together, soletsdodis!

    If you've ridden one of those before, even better.

    I have not been to either one but always interested in venturing out on new trails. Are the trails at Patuxent Park legal for us? I could only find information on hiking and mountain biking trails.

    There are no legal MC trails in Patuxent Ponds Park or anywhere else in Anne Arundel Co.
