Re: Riding Michaux

The only day that works for me is the 19th. I'll monitor this thread to see how folks reply. My skills on my Tiger 800 will allow some DS singletrack, but nothing too technical. One day I'll add a more nimble DS bike to my garage... I try to stick to the ungated roads on the Southern end. Start at t...

Re: Riding Michaux

I ride Michaux's southern end whenever I can get a day to myself, riding from Bel Air, MD. If somebody's contacting riders in this thread for posted Michaux rides then add me to the contact list.

Fishing Creek Road Lancaster PA

Fishing Creek Road includes three shallow stream crossings, 6 to 12 inches depending upon rainfall. The road is a few miles long, so explore all along the creek. I enter at Furniss Rd and exit at Susquehannock. The dirt road along the creek is reason enough to make this trip, even without the stream...

Re: Riding Michaux

Denny knows his way around, Thursday evenings never worked for me. But sure, any route info you have is welcomed. I'm old skool, maps and memory and winging it. I think it's more fun that way. For Bald Eagle and Michaux, the Purple Lizards maps are weatherproof and have served me well: Here's the M...

Re: Adventure Bike Training 2019

Define "adventure bike". The heavy "adventure touring bikes" like the GS, Tiger, and Africa Twin. I'm an expert MSF-certified Rider Coach on the street, intermediate rider on a dual sport off road [like the DRZ400] and a novice on my Triumph Tiger 800 XCX. It's a steep learning curve: weight, cente...

Re: Adventure Bike Training 2019

Here's the email I received from MSF Rider Coach Alain Kaldewaay of Explor-Int: Alain has explained to me that this training is for riders to improve skill on big adventure bikes [GS, Tiger, Africa Twin etc], not lighter enduros. That training would be the Dirt Bike School and Trail Riding School. *...

Adventure Bike Training 2019

Any riders here interested in the Adventure bike training course at Bald Eagle this summer? I'm not including the specifics because I'm new to the forum and don't want to give the impression that I'm advertising for the course. But it would be great to have one or more people to go with--especially ...

Re: Riding Michaux

Hello all, I'm a noob to this forum looking forward to making some new friends and riding day trips in Harford County and Southern PA. I especially like Michaux and the C&D Canal levys. I found SoPaRider on ADVrider last year and he clued me into some great info on riding Michaux--he's a great resou...
