Hello everyone a DAMN noob here but not a noob to riding. Been riding an xr600 for 8 years, dual sporting and trail riding. Last year decided too try a 2 stroke and ended up getting a kdx from a member here. I like single track and I try to get out once a week, mostly at RAC. My buddy told me to join here to get in on more riding opportunitys, it's kind of late in the year but maybe I'll get too meet up with some of you at least once this year.

I'm generally in Michaux riding a couple times a month, I live nearby (eastern side). I kinda gave up on ST, but lots of folks here still ride ST as well as DS and some trials stuff. There are generally riding opportunities year round, snow and ice only means it's time to pull out the trials bikes.

Howdy new guy. The RAC has some nice riding. I just wish I lived a little closer. Its just far enough that I never went there enough to the make the yearly pass worth it to me.

Laoch, we'll have to get together and DS around michaux sometime, I live on the south side of 30. I used to ride my xr around the dirt roads all the time till I got the kdx last year. And Bucho I no what you mean, it seems all the good trail riding is about two hours from me.
Bam bam, I definitely want too try some more enduros next year, just need too get in better shape so I don't have too stop for leg cramps lol. I want too check granvilles out with you but I think I'm going to have to work Saturday cause of the rain tomorrow

Welcome Woodsman97! I've been lurking in background, trying to keep my interest up, to ride again. I also have XR and a XL!

Awesome bork! I love the xrs. Been beating the hell out of mine for years and it keeps going. What year xl? Mine has the red white and blue color scheme with the gold rims. It's in need of a rebuild, probably has 40 thousand miles on it but parts are getting hard too find for them and I've been thinking of selling it.

XL is a 83 basket case but slowly gathering stuff for it. Your 86 is the best looking year!

Nice! A big red XL. Hope you get it running again. You don't see XLs anymore
