    As soon as I got home, wifey and I hopped in the car to see my friend John's Irish band in PA. Between the Irish and Eagles, the place is a sea of green. John is the guitar player on the right. He still has his 1980 IT200.

    Yes, shortcut was great, mostly enjoyed the teamwork!!
    StannisBaratheon is a great team player!! especially he did a great work blocking with his body all the slim flying off the KLR...
    Yossi and I took the wrong turn and took the long way home, probably unconsciously we wanted to completely clean the bikes.
    I wasn't 100% well today, got home, took a shower and collapsed for a few hours.
    Waiting for the next time.

    Wow, glad we got that ride in yesterday! Today, we’d need Noah’s Ark!
    Did you fellows have to change that flat in the rain?
    EFF330, let’s keep our eyes on the weather. Be glad to lead a big bike ride on Sat.

    Cool! I was thinking big bikes on Saturday, little bikes on Sunday, weather permitting.
    I'd ride down on the AT on Saturday. The village donut shop is a good place to meet if we want to do Great Adventure/Collier's Mill.

    One of the great things about this rain is that it's washed all the salt off the roads. Until the next snow/black ice, that is!

    Got the flat at 10 till 11, all fixed by 12. No rain at this time. Cold, old and bead locked made for quite a struggle. We rode till around 2:30.
    On our way in we passed the green KLR and blue bike at a gas station. I believe they saw us, two DR350's, go by.

    If I can't make it Sunday I'll likely be out on Monday. The weather is supposed to great on Presidents Day.

    Finally got my DRZ400 on the road. Took it out today to Bass River State Park to begin my dirt riding career. I stopped in the Park Office and spoke with an employee. She wasn’t too specific about where I could ride, but she gave me a basic map and said to stay off the hiking trails. I’m pretty familiar with the Park from hiking with my dog:

    I rode some of the access roads for about 45 minutes and didn’t encounter any major issues. The loose sand is definitely a wild ride the first time you hit it at speed. There was almost no water, this was the largest amount I found:

    Hopefully I see some of you guys out there soon. If anyone wants to ride Bass River or Wharton from the south side or Warren Grove area let me know. I live near the entrance to Bass River off Stage Road. I have a large driveway and plenty of on street parking at my house.

    I’ve gotta throw in a selfie from today so you guys know who to look for:

    I've only managed to get like 100 miles on my 1090 so far... If I get the new arrow exhaust put on early enough Saturday I might rip down that way

    I'd be up for riding in Bass River, let me know the next time you're out. I'll be riding on Monday as long as the weather holds out.

    Are you still on a KLR? I really enjoyed your TAT ride report. I'm starting Monday at Atsion ranger station if you're in that area too.
