    Sorry, have to work. I'll show you on Sunday! How a senior citizen does dirt....

    p.s., while you are wandering near the WAWA, you should do some duck hunting. The NY Metro Dirt tag is less then three miles from the WAWA at Whiting.

    I'll be on my DR650, I'm getting a little better on the sand every time I go out. I also got a new mount for my GoPro that I'm going to try out. One of these days I'm going to get a decent set of pegs that I don't slip off of.

    p.s., let me know when you want to get your “Pepsi” BMW out again, and I’ll bring down the AT...

    I'm in for Sunday with the Husky, as long as the test ride this afternoon goes well. Fingers crossed...

    Doc, I may be in for tomorrow at Atsion as well. Hopefully the overnight rains prep the sand nicely without making puddles larger. The winds should be quite strong. Trying to convince the Mrs to join me but she doesn't want to slow the group or struggle with an audience (that's half the fun).

    Atsion ranger station Sunday morning at 10, I'll be there on the husky. Might have a couple of guys with me.

    If we go West of 206, you might not be happy. The sand is a little deep there.

    Do you guys air down for riding the pines? I don’t but I want to try it. My only problem is I don’t have a power adapter on my DR for my portable compressor.

    I do, makes a big difference. I believe doc told me he runs 24 all the time? I drop to about 22. Adding a 12v cigarette lighter outlet is cake, just make sure you fuse it for 15a and use 16ga wire. You could also use your battery tender pigtail and just change the plug on the compressor to match.

    Seems like most of the bikes (CRF250 Rally/TE449/DR650) of the folks replying are leaning more toward the "Trail" side of the dualsport spectrum. If I make it, the XR400 will be my choice for tomorrow. That said, a good pilot aboard a big bike with aggressive tires can be humbling to watch!

    I air down about 4-5 psi for off road duty on the big bike. I'll be carrying a hand pump w/gauge with my if you want to try airing down w/o worrying about the ride home.

    Also, most times I just leave the pressure down when I come out of the woods and just air up at the nearest wawa. No problem with riding pavement at 22psi, just wears the tires a little faster.

    I might have to sit this one out, I'm comfortable with mud and rocks but sugar sand doesnt like me, or is it the other way around.
    Unless someone can suggest easier trails that I can do.

    Then again, considering today's rains, the sand should be packed and heavy. Might be the ideal time to get your S10 out there.
