Hey Mr Cash,

Bigborefan said there was an ADV running around Harrisburg.

We'll have to meet up for a ride this spring.

I am over near Pinckneyville. I enjoy the riding around Harrisburg, the ride to get to Harrisburg blows though.

Nice Pix

Look forward to it. Craiger lives over in Herrin, we ride pretty regular. Its pretty easy to spend a couple days just covering the Shawnee from river to river.

Yea there are. I've made it a couple of times to there on the hog. We didn't look for dirt roads but did happen across a few. We spent a lot of time riding to points north and west when in the area to cover some miles and passes. No doubt it would be fun on on a DS bike. Next time I go I'll be on one. Great thread here. Only been lurking since Nov or so but I'm in. I was from the southern part of the state when I was a much younger guy. I would love to go back there for a ride or two or three. I've been away for too long it seems. Keep posting the pics so some of us can see and remember there is a life outside of here.
Ride safe there neighbors.

Black Hills

Me and Big Brian did a Black Hills trip two years ago. Did about 800 miles of gravel and dirt roads out there. Search this site and especially the GPS portion and you will find plenty of places out there to get offroad from mild to wild. I have a ton of GPS waypoints and tracks for that area another inmate sent me. PM me with your emaill addy if you want me to send them to you.

I spent Thursday and Friday in Georgia riding a rented KTM 300XC-W 2-Stroke on off-road single track. A buddy of mine from SC meet me at Highland Park near Cedartown GA. We had the place all to ourselves pretty much.

http://www.highlandparkresort.com/

This place is really cool. Out in the sticks, down a dirt road, really nice KTM shop is on the property, 5 cabins, and 41 one-way trails, about 85 miles total. The trails are mild to wild. Great place to ride dirt bikes in the winter.

I am ready to go back if anyone wants to go.

I feel much better now. I think that Gary would really like to ride a KTM in those conditions.

I accompanied William....

.....on a nice 2.5 hr "beat the weather" ride on little bikes on Saturday. Some of the gravel was INTERESTING, dry on top with a swimmy layer of freshly thawed muck under it. It was bad enough in one stretch that Bill stopped and asked if it was just his sucky stock tires that came on his new bike or....it wasn't, I was on 90:10 Pirellis on the DRZ and was all over the road on that stretch.

Anyway, let it be known that William's new Husk-a-beemer is super cool and unfortunately (for me) was pulling away from me and Dr.Zee even with him staying under his break-in RPM! He is going to be a land rocket once he can use the whole RPM range. Hind tit, here I come!

Todays Ride

Got the Husky broken in today.

This road was easy to ride fast on







Well it was a dead end. I thought I was riding with vfrpilot.



I found another curve. This is a notable event around here.
