    Yes, it makes a BIG difference. The first time I rode the pines on my WR250R I was running upwards of 25 psi front and rear and I was washing out all over the place. I had a D606 in the rear and a Pirelli MT-21 up front. I aired down to around 15 psi and it made a huge difference. I'm on a different bike now running heavy duty tubes and different tires and run 10/12 psi and that's the highest I'll run in the sand. Never have traction issues with the lower PSI's.

    Radar map shows that the rain should clear out by 10:00 a.m.
    I'm heading down to Atsion. Dirt should be perfect, and the puddles lots of fun. NO DUST!

    Recipe for a nice ride in the Pine Barrens:
    1st, arrange for a nice 55 degree day with sunshine in the 4th week of November....
    2nd, make sure it rained the night before to firm up the sand and eliminate dust...
    3rd, have 4 of the nicest fellows (Bruce, Andy, Mo and Penn) meet you to keep you company...
    4th, have 5 bikes that all are compatible with some nice riding in the woods.

    Here's a little video of the kind of pine-needle covered trails we did for three hours before lunch:

    Good ride today! I’ll make sure my GoPro is charged for next time. Conditions were perfect today, couldn't have asked for better.

    I'm in for the Turkey Run, where are we all meeting up? I got one lousy picture today, I'll post it later. Had a great time though, really glad I got out and I love the new bike. Thanks for having me along!

    Found this video on the "Epic Rides" area. One of the best dirt videos and water crossings I've seen!



    And the sound track for this and episode 8 are fantastic. Here's a music video source for some of it:

    I'll be out Saturday if my Cogent shock gets here on Friday and have I have the install finished later that night. Should make a big difference.

    I was, I rode out through Atco to Atsion in the morning around 9:30 alone, met up with a few guys from here, then rode back alone, I guess around 2?
