Re: New Gear Reccomendations

Thank you for all the good info. I was looking at the Thor Sentry XP because it got good reviews. I like the single piece chest "plate" and the integrated elbow guards. Reveiws suggest it is cooler than some others, but i take that with a grain of salt. But then i saw some Alpinestars A10 and bionic...

Re: July 14-15

Had a good ride yesterday. Nobody showed me around and took me on some trails that kicked my ass. In all honesty, it was my choice. probably not the best choice for someone who has not ridden proper technical trails for many years. I heard Taskers was rocky, but i had no idea!! The weather wasnt too...

Re: July 14-15

Great! ill see you on Sunday. Ill be in a silver suburban with hitch carrier and a KTM. I have never been to Taskers before. This is the parking lot, correct?

Re: July 14-15

I would prefer to start 9am or earlier. I figure beat the heat, any weekend crowds, etc.

Done with Lurking

Grew up on three wheelers and dirt bikes, been riding/racing pavement for over 20 years, had a KTM smoker for a few years when i was living in DC but only rode it a few times. Now im back in MD and seeing as trails are few and far...
