Stud ^. No knobbie on the HD -ha so I think I'll pass.Let those big ADV bike have thier fun but thanks for the heads up. I want to get out one more time before BQF. http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fs...rass%2520Trail

Mon morning if anyone wants to join - kickstand up at 9:00 am at the parking lot of Wandering Wiregrass Trail. Not the most dymanic but there are some fun sections on the 16 or so mile trail. After I'll go north some and see if I can find any trails that lead to sections of the spring.

It's easy to follow, minimal nav (so I can fly around). Just a mix of Jeep and quad only trails. Here is pix from last trip. Easy trail and only 42 miles from the beach.

Last run over there was about 45 miles and 3 or 4 hours in the woods. Nice morning rip .

waiting to be cleared by docs to ride again! could be a week, could be a few months. but once i am, im gonna ride the fuckin wheels off this new machine i picked up. Havnt even gotten to ride it yet! (not allowed according to surgons and docs until im cleared)

best part??
Its gonna be street legal.

Behold! 2 stroke action! WR250-Z




it dont look like much, but ive researched every type of part offered for this bike on ebay. aftermarket and stock. its gonna be beautiful once im thru with it!

my inspiration, cept gonna be more white instead of blue.



going from a 330lb XR650 to a 230lb one, im gonna have a SERIOUS edge against all the "old guys!"
(not to mention the inverted forks finally, and I'm told the shock on it is from a YZ426F) no more tiring my ass out though the whoops after 10 minutes. not worried about range, I had a st legal IT490 a few years back, that bike had a 3.6 gallon tank, and I got 20 - 35mpg on it depending on how i rode.

Sun. ride

I'm going riding Sun. if anyone wants join, probably around 9:30. I usually start out at the Rodman Dam trailhead and ride down 19 a bit to avoid 4 wheelers. I found some pretty choice trails exploring around a few weeks back...
