I`d love to do a dual sport ride! But the earliest i could get off work that Friday would be noon. :shrug:.

Could you meet us by 1pm or so? Maybe we just do offroad stuff on site and wait for you.

Had a great ride today. New guy Buzz did great riding on crappy stock XT250 tires. We did some offroad and single track riding/practice. Then rode over to nearby Michaux and ran a loop.
We missed 99% of today’s rain!

The only place I pulled my camera out for pics was when Buzz wanted to give my little hillclimb a try.









He is going so fast!

:thumbup: Good day riding.
That Lightyear is one of the few guys I've seen that can out-ride their bike. :roost:

Bucho and Laoch made it easy to be the new guy and made it a lot of fun to follow their lead. I went into the day with three goals: to make a few friends, keep up, and not break anything--finished the day with all three accomplished.

I loved riding single track on my Suzuki TS185 back in the early 80s--Laoch and I have that in common. Only back then I spent more time finding places to ride then actually riding. I told Laoch this was the best riding day I've had since the 80s. He replied, "You need to get out and ride more." I look forward to doing that and meeting more of the group.

Bucho--next time I owe you some photos. Your invite made my summer. And your tactful tire scrutiny got me motivated to start looking for some decent off road tires.

Looking forward,
Buzz

Really sorry I missed this and I'm looking forward to cashing in my rain check sometime this fall. I'll definitely be going back up to Bald Eagle/Seven Mountains in late August/early September if anyone is interested. That place has something for everyone.
