What about Wambaw tomorrow, Sun April 21. Also noticed Enoree finally opened last week. Let's plan a Saturday ride up there. I'd be up for sharing hotel and spending night if we want to ride all day.

Anyone know where can I buy yearly trail pass for SC's OHV trails?

Clint

Sent email about tomorrow and Enoree to the list. call my cell or email if you are interested. I may not log back in here before leaving in the morning.
Florduh will be represented

Ken...wish I could have joined you today but "on call" this weekend so no riding. Hope you all had a good ride and were able to stay reasonably dry.

I hope to see you all on the road!
If you bought Laura's DRz 350, you simply must register for the Armenia Dual Sport in a couple weeks. We've got a few from this thread going, and I'm sure we can get your bike there via trailer if you don't want to ride it up. Info on the event at www.carolinadualsporters.com Email me if you think you'll want to trailer the bike, or if you want to be added to the email group for this thread.

Sadly, I won't be able to make it anywhere for a bit, I have to complete a motorcycle safety course before I'm legally allowed to ride. So, I'm probably looking at July before I can join you all. :(

That email group sounds great, ill shoot you a PM!

Hey Clint,

You must've read my other post too fast; I said it had a seat! This is the only pic I've taken so far:



I was actually shopping for a vintage bike, as Speedy has a Honda TL250. When I ran across this '08 Scorpa TY-S125F with its Yamaha 4T motor (TT-R125), I couldn't resist it, though. I can still ride it in the AHRMA and ITSA vintage events where Speedy will be competing, just in a support class. Who knew going so slow could be so much fun?!

Heck Yeah Laura! That trials bike looks like a blast. Hopefully once we get Mikey (EternalGreen) all safety coursed up we can come watch you do some wheelies and high jumps on that thing.

How was Armenia???

If it was wet I'll bet the "first section across the road" was interesting!

I chickened out on competing at Aonia Pass due to the wet ground and just rode the loop trail and did scoring for Speedy. I had a blast doing that, though, as you can tell by the looks of my bike afterwards:



It was a vintage event, so if I had actually participated it would've only been in a support class. I'm going to keep practicing and hopefully will be ready to try some sections for real at the next event. Riding a trials bike is totally addicting!

Hey Ken,
Are you taking the KLR to long cane? Looks like fun I might be persuaded to try it out.

CAW on saturday 6/15/13

Even though I should be working around the house this Saturday since I'm going up to Long Cane next week, I can't resist the urge to ride. I will be headed up to Carolina Adventure World (CAW) early Saturday morning. If you come up to ride you can meet me at 9am near the dirt dragstrip tree. I'll be on the GRN-KLR. Hope some of you get some 2 wheel time soon.

Is CAW fun on a heavy bike like the KLR? i was worried it would be more for dedicated dirt/motocross bikes.

Armenia Youtube

I'll have to tell about CAW later, this is my first trip there.
Here's Armenia Dual Sport pt1 to rub it in for those of you
that didn't show up and to remind those who made it how
much fun it was.

Next week is Long Cane Dual Sport
