    Got out on the 450 yesterday for a 91 mile ride of back road/dirt road. Got 2961 miles since Mid March. Did the oil and filter again today...old oil looked great!

    Been working on tying together a route that includes some of the longest stretches of dirt road in my area. Doing it old school...no surprise there lol, with maps and memory. One of the dirt roads I discovered at 12 years old when I got my first motorcycle. That's 50 freakin years ago...time flies!

    Found a route sheet generator site and loaded all the turn by turn directions. Estimated the milage based on map scale and some basic measurements. Printed it out and taped it to a piece of cardboard so I could right actual milage on it while riding the route.

    That was yesterdays ride verifying milage at all the turns. It was fun, was a first for me putting together a ADV route. The first half of the ride is figured out and came in at 69.6 miles. Edits made to the route sheet milage and printed out.

    The second half of the loop will go back on the same route for 5 miles including a nice 3 mile dirt road section. Then slip off and wind it's way back to the start.

    Once put all together I plan to take a group of club guys out on it for the day. The 50 Year Discovery ride lol.

    Our club is putting on a second enduro in the NETRA championship series on 11/14. We feel it's good for the series due to several events being cancelled this year. It's a time keeper and so is the rest of the series...might be one of the few full time keeper series left?

    The Trail Boss contacted me a week ago and asked me to sweep ride and pull arrows...I told him I would be there with my bike and be ready. I consider it a compliment in a way. Probably one of the oldest riders ever to be asked to sweep a championship event.

    Of course I plan to do this on the 300...going to ride the roots and rocks tomorrow. Have to stay fresh lol!

    Nice! Bike is looking good NEPA! Never tried the YL porter...

    Not going to make the Hammer Run this year down in NJ. One of the best Dual Sports in the North East IMO. They give you a plastic mug at sign up. Have a antique fire truck setup with kegs and beer taps mounted on the side. Ice cold Yingling form the keg ain't bad!!

    Ran a 14/50 on my 02 KTM 300exc. Had it plated with a Baja designs lighting kit w/blinkers. Went up to Tug Hill NY and ran the dirt roads up there with it. Switched to a 15T CS before going. A bunch of guys from my gym at the time were also going on modified and hot rodded race quads. Long story short the 300 ate the fastest quads for lunch lol.

    The next day my buddy Big Joe and I went out for a ride. He was on a bored and stroked KTM 575 thumper and we did a high speed run on a straight dirt road section. I pulled away from him after a while and he said we were going 92MPH at the time! Good times lol!
