Lemme know if you want to ride sometime, fellas. I'm doing a 1500 mile trip in a week or so though, so I'll be busy.

Now who's the son of a bitch with the ridiculously loud KTM (supermoto style) in Lynchburg. Waved to me as I was dismounting my KLR. I laughed but damn that thing was loud.

The 690 stock exhaust is super quiet (the only reason I still have it on the bike) but it is as hot as the sun.

Hey Allen thanks for leading us up to DB Friday. I put just shy of 600 miles on the 690 this week-end.
I am a little tender to say the least

Took this route on the KLR today: http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap...33802&t=h&z=15

Bit off a bit more than I could chew considering all the rain we've had lately and I'm running Shinko 705s. Lots of muddy soft spots and water rushing down I didn't know I had this map until after I got home, so I had no clue where the path was going. Tried to turn around at one point and couldn't so I just kept on and was happy to come out at the end. Dual sport riding is not a good solo sport. Had fun anyway!

trails in lynchburg

my .02 cents......
When I lived in Lynchburg a couple years ago as a student at LU, you were allowed to ride the trails at Liberty Mountain. There are something like 60-100 miles worth of trails. But you had to be a student or staff. Not sure if those rules have changed--- but those are some of the best riding trails in the Lynchburg and surrounding area. There are even maps on the student webpages from what I recall. I'd often see Jerry JR's kid out there alot. The trails are all different kinds, dirt, gravel, muddy, fire road, single tract, etc...
just watch out for joggers.
below is a pic on one of the open moutain tops... If i recall correctly, there were 3 main trail accesses-- 1 at the wingate hotel near the runners access, it was a big fire road beside a shack. the 2nd access was on the backside of candlers mountain road off sunnymead off a road called lone jack rd. there is also a motorcross course there too. which i almost killed myself on with the xr650 below... the 3rd way to the trails is the most noticable and easiest way---- yet you run a risk of being caught if you are not a student or staff-- and that is straight infront of the monogram by the snowflex mountain. there are two trails that diverge at the top from what i recall. again really watch out for people here- because most are walking up to the make out gazebo by the monogram (aka the huge LU sign on candlers mountain off hwy460).....
that should get you all started on some great local riding- just don't be a prick and ruin it by getting the trails shut down for the rest of us!

I am not sure when you were there last but alot has changed in the last few years.
They are developing alot of the mountian side
Looking at the map I think a few of the trails may be gone.

2009. but stayed around till 2010...
from what i remember and when i go back to see friend and fam- they are expanding on the side of the road where wingate hotel is... there are tons of trails on the back side of the mountain off lone jack road... it will take quite a while till they stretch that far back on the mountain.

just trust me- go up candlers mtn rd. turn left on sunnymeade, then turn left on lone jack road. once on lone jack road you will see a gravel road with a gate on the left. just past that is another trail to the left. that one leads up to trail head. there is a trail map there.

on the other side of lone jack rd on the right side of the road is a sign and a dirt road that leads to the motorcross trail. BUT, the trail continues beyond the motorcross track to more trails...

All i can say is it's great RIDING!

Hey dudes. Hope y'all have had a good summer. I just discovered the other day that someone stole the tag off my KLR! Bike is fine though.

Soooo how often so I need to change the oil in the thing?

I live a few miles from Liberty Mountain and agree there is great riding up there. Technically you are supposed to be a student or on staff to ride. I graduated in 08 and figure I paid for it so ill enjoy it.

The area is heavily used by hikers, runners, mtn bikers and occasional equestrian and ROTC. The deeper trails are less traveled but a lot tighter and therefore more difficult.
