I can meet up anywhere in Mobile on Saturday and Sunday. I wouldn't mind exploring dirt roads and some trails as long as I don't do extended interstate driving.

Any ideas?
I think what would be even better is to add certain weekends of the month, like Starbuks Coffee at 10AM on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month. That would allow people to plan around it a bit.

Somebody else pick a meet-up spot & time. I'll try my best to show up. I don't care where we go. There is some guys meeting up in P'cola if y'all want to try that ride.
Most of the dirt I know is that same Barnes Rd area & north Mobile county.

I pulled the carb off and the pilot jet was clogged, the float bowl gasket was dry rotted so I have to get a new one. I'm going to do some mods to the carb to hopefully get some better low end performance.

Got my carb sorted out so I'm ready. I did a lot of dirt riding today so I'm eager to find some more dirt roads and trails.

Today we found out that small puddles can be deceiving.

One guy in the water. One guy trying to help but not get totally wet and muddy and then of course one guy with the camera!

To quote FBM "Throw the damn camera away and get your ass in here to help me out!"

Glad you guys are finding some riding over there...


Another quote from an old woods rider..."Never trust a fart or a puddle"! Good advise

It's weird how I know where that is even though I haven't been there in years. That whole area used to be tight thick woods. Somebody went thru there with a dozer the last time I rode it. I never went back.

Bentrimz, I'll try to give you a call in a few hours. If nothing else, I'll show you some other spots.

I'll be riding the roads later this morning. I'm down with meeting up if anyone is interested. Don't really have a plan, but plenty of time, and open to suggestions. I'll check back here in a while to see if there is any interest. If not, maybe I'll see you on the road.
