Fredericksburg, VA Dualsport Riders - Urban Hooliganism???

OK - So I finally got a street legal dualsport. 06 KTM 525. I live just outside Fredericksburg, Va., where there is not/not a ton of dirt riding.

That said, there is the Bowman Center off Rt. 2, and the Belman Industrial Park off rt. 3 Bypass. Both are within about 2 miles of each other. I have driven through both, and there are a few areas to play, with some steps, stairs, or drops to mess around with.

Is anyone local enough to want to go mess around over there? Figure a Sunday would be the most obvious day to not have anyone around to be offended or agitated by said hooliganism. Not that rubber tires are going to damage anything, and I have no intention of being anyplace I really shouldn't... but less people is better.

Anyone?

Barry

I'm game... but I don't think my GS is going to cut it. Anyone want to spot me a 610/630SM to play on?

If love to join you, but I don't have a free weekend again for a while.

And I've seen Gastone handle that GS like it was a smaller 525!

I think Dennis has me confused for someone else. I enjoy following good riders so I can learn a thing or to.

However, if I must: Blooch, lemme borrow a bike to practice steps/stairs on.
