    Looks like this weather might break for some 40 degree days this weekend. Plan to go hit the Geo. Washington NF and parts thereabouts on Saturday if the forecast holds up.

    Prolly around McDowell and Headwaters. That is if MM will do something about the snow. Or maybe even if he don't.

    Unfortunately, they seem to be backing off of that rosey forecast for the weekend...now their calling for highs only in the low 30s. I think the white stuff is going to be around awhile.:splat

    Hit Taskers Saturday on the XR400 R. Had a blast. Rode 3 hours. My XR, buddy on DR350, buddy on DRZ400, and another buddy on a quad leading so we could see ice. When he quit throwing twin brown tracks, it was time to throttle back !

    In the snow I had enough traction that I was pulling power wheelies in 3rd gear ! Tucked the front a few times, pulled it back in.

    I've seen your performance on the GS, and I'd only expect a trip to the ER.

    What ER? When I break a bone I man up and tough it out! Besides, that was before I watched all the Paris-Dakar and AMA GNCC action on the telly these last few weeks. I got it dialed now, boy!

    hey SM,

    I was thinking meet at McDowell, but that may be too far south for some of you guys/girls. I don't really care as long as it not north of Front Royal since I only have the day (comin from C'ville). Mcdowell and the roads around there are the only dirt FS and jeep roads I know, thus far. There may be some good ones this side of the mountains (maybe warmer, less snow?), I just don't know about them. If the weather was good, I would insist on the McDowell area because I like it and its close. But I would concede to someone who knows more than I do (I know that is gonna be a tough one).

    Anyway, I guess its open to suggestions, but not random BS and/or self-serving comments.

    Everything is gonna still be covered with snow and ice........good luck finding any where that is not scary to ride this time of year. A month ago we hit snow and it has not been warm enough to get rid of it and if you haven't noticed it snowed recently.

    Call me a pussy, I just don't see a dirt ride happening.....safely. Get your testosterone out and you could have some fun.
