Re: 4/14, Michaux Rambling

Some of my weekends through May and in to early June are already committed but if I'm free I'll be happy to come up and help. Weekdays are generally good for me if that opportunity opens up for a trail blazin' day.

Re: 4/14, Michaux Rambling

Note to self - when Phil says "follow me, it's not too gnarly" run away :nono: I am constantly in awe of how great his place is to ride but there are some challenges in there. For me. Phil, not so much :cheers: We had a great time roaming around Michaux and actually the constant drizzle wa...

Re: 4/14, Michaux Rambling

I've done plenty of these kinds of rides on the big GS and the only time I've spent all day on my WR250R has been on trail rides. It's set up for longer ADV rides (big tank, racks, etc) so I'm going to being it tomorrow and see how it goes. Psych'd to meet up and ride!

See you guys in the a.m.

After hitting some trails on Bill's MTB I'm wonder if it's not cheating to go e-MTB if you're an old coot.
It's NOT NICE to make fun of OLD PEOPLE!
Hey, I am old people!

Re: Mountain bike trails

Lefty's are just wrong. Bearings aren't meant to be square :killingme: I'm fascinated by them from an engineering standpoint. Most of their marketing about it is not complete BS which is refreshing. Through axles have negated some of the stiffness advantages however and I don't think the small weig...

Re: Sur Ron Tuning. aka geek speak.

My daughter and I made it down to Budds Creek today with some friends and we brought the Sur Ron. I managed a couple of laps on the big track and it handled it just fine even with the trials tire I had on the back. That thing is a torque beast. We got off and lost in the woods for a while riding the...

Re: DAMN ADV ride May 1-2

Im learning how to use gps/phone to follow tracks. This afternoon I went out and rode the beginning of the route we are going to follow. I didnt go too far into Michaux but I did find one gate closure. According to the sign on it, the gate will be closed when we do this next month. Teaberry Rd is g...

Re: Mountain bike trails

My wife, daughter and I went over this week and rode the Waterworks trails. Loads of fun trails in there - and loads of steep climbs. Why are there always more climbs than descents? We didn't do much more than half of it before we felt like we had a whoopin' I'd definitely like to go back and ride s...

Re: Any Interest in midweek riding this week?

I think I'd said something to a couple of guys here about getting up to FRO tomorrow. Since this is the first ride of the year for my daughter, I think we're going to run down to Budds Creek and let her ride with some of her friends tomorrow. This will be the first time she's been on the Sur Ron out...

Re: DAMN ADV ride May 1-2

Preach it Rev. Bill!

Anything more than 4 - 5 bikes in a group is a parade.

I just wanna ride, man!
