    Beautiful day for a ride in the woods, on all legal jeep roads and sand highways!
    Bill and your team... thanks for circling back for me, and letting me lead. Here are some shots from the ride:

    Yeah, I had the most cylinders! The Triumph 800XC is spectacular in the sand. Handled at least as good, and maybe even better, then my SE. And feels lighter and lower!

    Well, I didn't test ride the SE or the XC before I bought them. I usually need a few weeks with a bike, under various conditions, before I can tell whether I like it.

    Don't think I will have trouble selling the Honda African Twin if I don't like it. We'll see. Anyway, Cross Country says it's gonna be delivered May 10th!

    I have to be in Hackettstown on Sunday at 3:45 for a soccer game. I was thinking about spending the morning in the Pine Barrens and then heading that way after lunch.

    I'm sure at some point in my life I was warned about responding to post like this by strange men on the internet, then meeting them in secluded wooded areas, but, yes, I definitely want to go riding this weekend.

    Bill, can you make a ride for Sunday? Anytime would work for me. Early. Afternoon. Weather is supposed to be nice again.

    My buddy and I are heading to PB Saturday on DR650's. We're going to the races in Millville Sunday and will be staying there Saturday night. If anyone is going riding in the Barrens Saturday and wants to meet up somewhere let me know. I'm a sand noob so there's that to consider.

    Change of plans. Weather looks like crap on Sunday so we decided not to go to the races so the PBs are out as well. We're gonna be heading to the Pocono region instead.
