TNT Motorsports
9AM until....


EDIT: CHANGING THE LOCATION TO TNT MOTORSPORTS!!!!!


TNT Link
Google Map Link

I'm chompin at the bit to ride my new to me KDX, since nothing is open nearby during the week. This is the extent of my riding on it so far. Seriously.



I've got 4 or 5 already going with me. If we get 10 its 10% off. $25 for all day riding. I've heard there can be a lot of ATVs but there is some bike only trails as well as fire roads. Also, we can plan on some good food for dinner if we get enough of a group. There is also camping and cabins on site for out of towners. Who's with me?

I might be down for this, but will have to check into lodging situations for Friday after class tonight.

Also, the code for the CAW hyperlink is a little messed up, FYI.

Thanks Draechon, I think I got the links fixed now.

I might be willing to splurge on lodging there if we get enough people, it sure would make it simpler. But looks like they are wanting a 2 night minimum which I can't stay Saturday night.

More details such as ride times, etc to follow once we figure out better numbers

Iv'e been there and rented a 4wheeler. It was alot of fun, but don't plan on taking any "Big" DS bikes there. My KLR650 would not be fun there at all. It's really dusty I remember and some of the stuff get's pretty tough. I would totally go on a smaller bike but not me and my fat KLR.

I think the only draw back to bigger bikes is the stamina factor. Wears you out quicker. I'm by no means an experienced rider, but I took my KLR up to Uwharrie last year and had a blast (until some dude picked my bike up for me and then dropped it breaking the clutch lever).

But I'll be sticking to the KDX200 mostly for this trip. I ordered a pressure suit, just cause I plan on getting in trouble. If there is room on the trailer, I'm going to bring the F800GS. Right now it is looking like the KDX, and Friends DR250, and TTR125 will be making the trip on the trailer. Really hoping to teach my GF how to ride on the TTR125.

Looks like we have 3 maybe 4 inmates going, wives and gfs, and then hopefully 2 or 3 coworkers. I don't think CAW is the ideal place, but for all the limited group riding going on, this should be a fun event just to get out and meet people.

Don't know exactly where your starting point is, but you may want to check this place out as well.

So far most of the riders are from Columbia and Charleston SC. We might pick up a few stragglers from Charlotte. But will definitely keep that place in mind for future riding events! Thanks!

Ok, executive decision. We're changing this weekend's riding location to TNT Motorsports. Only 20 mins away from CAW.

1502 Brown Road
Chester, SC 29706
(803) 385-5048

Bandy's wife is now taking a beginner dirt class at TNT and logistically it makes sense to switch to that location for everyone. Its also closer for those coming from Charlotte. We are getting there at 9AM sharp. Rumor on the dirt is that the riding is better at TNT anyways. Who knows?

Hey guys. I've been wanting to make it out to CAW for a long time, but I've never heard of TNT. Anyways, I think I may tag along with y'all if that's ok. I'm a bit of a newb, but I'll try not to hold any one up, if I make it out there.

I'll be coming from Spartanburg. I'll probably trailer my XT225, just in case me or the bike are too wrecked for the ride home. I also have a TTR125 I could throw on the trailer if anyone has someone that may want to ride it. Just let me know.

Do y'all plan on packing a lunch, or do they have food out there?

Could some one shoot me a PM with a phone number so I can touch bases with you if I decide to go?

Thanks, Jonathan

Glad to hear you are coming, I think the weather is going to be perfect! I shot you a PM with my digits. You didn't even have to get me drunk.

Hey guys!
Hope y'all made it home safe.

How'd the DR do on the way home Draechon?

I had a blast! Can't wait to get together again.
Hope y'all get the video up soon.

GI_Jo_nathan, the DR was great the whole ride home! (minus it stalling once when pulling off the interstate) The ride home was MUCH better than the ride up Saturday morning. If anyone is curious, the wind-chill factor for riding at 75 mph in an ambient air temperature of 27* is 4*.

Big thanks to the other three guys that went. Dirtysouthjacket for planning the event and letting me crash at his place, Bandy and GI_Jo_nathan for going through and fixing whatever was crapping up my carburetor.

Now for a few pictures:


The Ladies


ADV bikes getting ready. Those Pro-taper bars can take a hit too! Wish I had put the hand-guards and better tires on.


The only casualty of the trip


One of two too-street-ready tires that contributed to my 6 times of donating gas to the trail

That's good to hear Draechon.
Glad you got some pics. I'm always bad about not taking any.
I'll try to post up the couple I took.

Edit :
We should have done this same pic with us standing with our bikes.


This was Sunday morning, I was too sore and tired to unload in the freezing rain Saturday night.
And yes I washed most of the mud off at the park.

Well we made it out alive!

My poor little spare tube tire bag didn't survive its encounter with a tree.
I have a lot to learn with regards to two strokes!

But more pics and video to come. I have some hilarious video of my two big drops, and Scott got a lot of GI JO Nathan's shenanigans. Definitely a blast and a big learning experience.
