I want the bike pictured above. What is it? It's sexy enough to prompt my first post.

By the way I liked the Dunlop D606 tires on my KLR.
Welcome, Mike, if your KLR was black and you work in Brewer, I think we have met before, took a ride up Passadumkeag area

Question Riding the Kokadjo area?

Any issues ADVriding in the Kokadjo area, like #4 Mountain and Bluff areas?
Been riding that area on sleds for the past couple of weeks (NICE area) just wondering if bikes are allowed?

the atv trails in that area are 'no bikes' according to the Maine ATV map
has it been enforced is another question.
And this is why the Dirt Riders's group is being formed for the state. I should say there are some people in the group who have some very good contacts with the people who we need to work with.

Thank you.

Nice spot that's for sure.

I'll make my own tracks up that way this season. ;)

Stop in for a cold one when you're over. Sure would like to connect your camp to mine with a dual sport some day.
