Can you tell us the name of this road or provide the lat/long of the picture, please? Tia.
The beginning is very loose rock and the top has some definite obstacles. Wouldn't recommed big bikes (gs, etc) unless your a really good rider with some good knobs. Fine for smaller dual sports with riders of decent abilities (my gen 1 klr is about the biggest I would want to ride on it).
Belvidere, TN ??
No, Cowan...Franklin County
That's a hell of a road, done it a few times, last time was this summer on my dr350. Prentice Cooper is one of my favorite areas to ride anywhere. Thanks for posting!
It is a heckuva road! I enjoy riding there and get there fairly regularly, only about 55 miles away so a quick jaunt down the 4 lane slab (I-24) and then onto secondary and county roads.
Some other places...
Hope I didn't bore you with too many :)
Locations are always helpful with the pictures.
Looks like some fun riding in middle Tn.
I didn't know there was that much off road there but when I lived over there all I had was the Low Rider so I didn't do to much looking around for it.
Various places around middle TN...Prentice Cooper, Franklin Forest, Franklin County TN, Catoosa, along the TAT section between Lynchburg and Fayettville, above Lynchburg and one from over the other side of Centerville.
Takes some searching around...lotta stuff in and around the Cumberland Plateau, both the Southern and Northern end. Most of the State Forests have good riding as well as the WMA's have some. Central/Central-West is very rural with lots of good dirt roads. Catoosa is an untapped resource as it is HUGE and has miles of public roads that are dirt and gravel.
My buddy and I have been wanting to make a trip to Catoosa. Is that an area that would be fun on a KLR, or should I haul my dirtbike out there?
Perfectly KLR accessible! We did a group ride up there recently, everything from a WR250r, to numerous klr's, to a 990, 1090 and 1190. A good mixture of high speed packed gravel/crusher run (I hit 70+ easy) with power slides in the corners to the side trails which are all dirt, 1st, 2nd gear stuff. Side trails are a lot of fun as they wind through the woods. Be aware, you can ride all day and still only see a small section. We covered about 100 miles on our group ride, riding all day, and just hit a little bit of stuff. Here is a youtube link with a bunch of short videos of our day ride that David (platypus-3in1) put together. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcy2t3LSqc7tQowenvCiul7Pezo1O_vRk
Make sure if you go, you visit the No 24 train tunnel at Nemo (and ride through it!) just a few miles outside the northern section towards Wartburg.
Not to spam or anything but if you are interested on adventure rides across TN, we got a FB page titled "Lets Take a Ride" about our group rides around the state.
Area around Temperance Hall and Lancaster.
I bet we waved at each other today haha.
I was all over this area, enjoying the warm, sunny, December day...
Yeap, I believe we did. No bags today. Photo courtesy of @DavidWellsCOM
I ate at Subway in Gordonsville and across the street is a BBQ joint, parking lot full of HD and GL’s. Still there when I came out. WTF???
Beautiful day to ride!!!
Ever eat there? At the BBQ place I mean. I did last month and it is quite the spot. So my question here is : Subway? :)
No but I’m sure it’s good.
It’s me, I just shake my head seeing bikes lined up like this on such a beautiful day. Same goes for passing these small bars on sunny days and seeing the parking lot packed with HD riders.
Whatever, I’d rather get a quick bite and ride than be inside socializing. Some get into that more than I do.
Guess I need to be less critical of others.
Richard I am 100% in your camp, I ride a lot and when I am riding I just want to roll. It leaves no room for riding buddies so, without exception, I ride alone.
My routine is fairly extreme, After breakfast the only time I eat is when my bike does. This means I eat in a lot of Circle K's and Buckees. Fuel, pee, grab whatever and ride out.
Needless to say I always look forward to the evening stop
