Sounds cool. Easy dirtroad/fireroad type dualsporting is fun for most any size bike.

In!
This will give me motivation to finish off the street ties in the twin. I'm sure my brother would be in too!

If the timing works out, I'm in. I've got plenty I could show around WV. If I'm game for it on the 1090, it's safe for just about anyone.

Huh, maybe I could bring out the 690. I finally mounted the front Heidenau K73 supermoto tire I've had sitting around for a year so I should have some ok traction (already had the rear mounted up). The fat 17" semi-knobby Heidenaus look pretty cool... I also remembered to look inside the wheel to divine the mystery of how these spoked wheels are tubeless. The nipples don't go through the rim at all so there are no holes to seal up. They must be mounted directly to the outside somehow. Now I've got a new mystery but one I'm not curious about enough to loosen up a spoke... :killingme:

I took advantage of the AOMC 15% off deal to get a AL skidplate for it and a supermoto front fender.

The route I have all planned out and documented via roll chart, is definitely big bike or smaller bike friendly. Nothing hard core unless we were to add something in. Just a nice back road/fire road/forrest road ride to Rocky Gap and then stay there for the night.

That's a good route Bill.
I've done parts of it. Well most of it, but never in one shot.
