My buddy (on a GSA) and I (on a Tenere) will be hitting the trail on and off road from Richmond to Sperryville and down to Peaks of Otter (South Pedler Trail area) and back to Richmond October 15-17. Nothing too challenging, as I am a dirt novice. We are planning to hit some of the fire/forestry roads, etc found in this thread. It has been incredibly helpful. I have been riding street for about 25 years and am still quite new to the adventure thing. Had a DR650 and liked it a lot, however, didn't really have the time to ride two different bikes. So, I sold the DR and my Blackbird and now am in love with my Tenere. Plan to hit some of the TAT next year on our cross country retirement ride. ADVrider is chocked full of so much info, it is hard to wade through it all! Anyone wanting to join us in October, sound off!
