That's not just the pirate crowd around here. The local Indoor Adventure Riders limit themselves to warm sunny afternoon trips to Brewhaus too. I did see a V-strom in Chattanooga one day when it was cloudy, though.

That is just plain not true. They will sometimes ride to Champy's or Terminal.

Saturday Ride?



I haven't put much thought into it, yet......

Maybe Prentice Cooper? Cherokee Nat'l Forest? Little River Canyon? Brown Dog's Farm?

I'd like to ride the trails at Prentice Cooper or Houston Valley. Lets see if we can break the chain of Saturday storms we've had for the past three weekends in a row.

Monte ~ I'm hoping it clears up some for riding Saturday, maybe Prentice Cooper?


Twisty ~ I'd be game for hitting the Houston Valley again on a weekday. Maybe next week? What days are you usually good for riding up?

Houston Valley today after work

Andre and I are hitting Houston Valley - approx 5pm for hour or two. Text me if you want to meet up 4239272009.

Andre will be on his KLR650 and I on KTM350. I blew out my bearings or spacer in my rear wheel on my DR650 last Friday on Starr Mountain... hoping warranty will cover it!

Jesse Teague and I may do Prentice Thursday afternoon as well.
(My wife is out of town - can you tell?

Mud Mania at Houston Valley!!

Last night was a blast! Chasing Mr. Twisty through the trails of HV - proved to increase my adrenaline flow dramatically!! But then... we hit the Clay-Cliffs! Biking turned into more of like Sledding (downhill) and dragging (uphill). I am sure I burned a week's worth of calories last night!

Broken Mirror + mud in every crevice + chasing Mr. Twisty = Great time!

I've been trying to get my pictures of Doulos uploaded to Photobucket so I can post them up from our ride, but they won't upload. Most of then are of an exhausted Doulos standing over a napping KTM 350.I may have to get help from Photobucked. Something is wrong.

I know it's late in the day, but I'll post anyways.....

A new drinking establishment has opened in Chattanooga and I'd thought I'd give it a shot. The Flying Squirrel! Located near the Crashpad off of Main St.

Gonna be there around 7:30 anyone is welcome to join
