No work restrictions (I have a desk job) and I could pretty much do whatever the shoulder will tolerate (within reason.) I asked him if I could ride my street bike and after hesitating for a moment he said it shouldn't be a problem after it healed a bit more but recommended I not fall down again.

Guess I'll be watching for some dirt/gravel rides over the next couple months. The Bob Ramsey ride and the Flint Ridge Road Enduro will be too soon for me though. Sucks because I really wanted to see how good my time keeping skills are.
Sounds like good news from a standpoint of recovery without surgery.

I recommend it if you go on a weekend, you won't be contending with anyone over there.

Perfect day for trail riding!!

I had an excellent time at Wayne. Hard to believe I've never gone over there with how close it is. Thanks for showing me around!

Got out for a little ride this afternoon although it was raining in spots. Mud helps the KLR's looks anyway.
1st stop, scooted up this on the KLR, I don't see what the big deal is:



I think they had some AMA hill climb national here http://www.pioneermotorcycleclub.com/home.html

Horsed around through Big Bottom and into McConnellsville. Explored some Morgan Co dirt across to 339 and more dirt back into Lowell. Ended up with about 120 miles.



The leaves down here are looking good.

That's some good riding country down there in Beverly - the Pioneer Motorcycle Club puts on hill climbs each year and that pic (above) ain't it. Their hill climb is a wall, with a step, with a continuing wall and a step, etc. Of course, they give you 10' of approach to do that so you can get a good run at it. I clicked on the link (above) and it's a Toy Run Trail Ride - 10 mile trail. Pioneer always put on, IMHO, the best enduro of each year so I'm banking that they've put together a great 10 miles of riding.

Entry fee is one toy (non-stuffed) - that's a good deal to help out the kids in Morgan County ( I think it's Morgan - could be Washington County - and those kids need it down there.

I won't miss this ride-

Speaking of hill climbs, did anyone go down to the Devil's Staircase National Hill Climb down near Wilmington yesterday?

They gate everything off so the hills and trails are locked up. That's about all you can see from the road. A guy that works for me won a district hill climb atv series a few years back.

For vids of the big one, look for waterford hill climbs on youtube.

Look for the Chris LeDoux version. Much better than the Rascal Flatts "Chipmunks Do Country" stuff. He was an awesome country singer who also won the National Finals Rodeo Bronc Riding buckle, '76-ish? He was the real deal. I still regret not going to Kentucky to see him when I had the chance.

I like all the 70's and 80's stuff listened to the normal fare for years before I expanded into that twangy stuff, and I even like acts like Eric Church.My other favorite genre is rockabilly and I've been getting string bands like OCMS and The Devil Makes Three lately.

Don't get me wrong, I can dig on some good dropped "D" heavy stuff, but only in small doses.
I think DAC will be at Screaming Willies this weekend.

I've got a couple of his albums, he's good stuff. I'm not a huge country fan, but I like what I like. I dig folks like Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakam, Junior Brown, etc. Like a lot of bluegrass too, my grandfather and his brother were session guys in the 60's and played on a who's who of bluegrass albums. Grew up with that stuff, still love it.

My old stomping grounds. Watching the hill climbs were a lot of fun when I was a kid, they ran some at night with the hillside lit up with stadium lights... was quite a sight. A lot of underage drinking took place during the weekends when Pioneer MC Club had a hill climb

Grew up in Beverly. So many good roads that I've forgotten and need to rediscover.

Give Old Crow Medicine Show and The Devil Makes Three a listen if you haven't already.

Wagon Wheel is one of my all time favorites

If you get into the Fayetteville WV area look for Wild Rumpus playing around area while you're there. They do some pretty good OCMS along with their own stuff.

Free stuff...get it before Goodwill does.



Set of new Cycra plastic for Pro-Bend handguards, blue.

Nelson Rigg small teardrop magnetic tank bag, good shape has a rain cover and a strap so you can swing it around like a purse.

Pair of Fox Strafer pants, good shape with hip pads size 32. Some grime stains on the inside panels, but otherwise in great shape. Nice pants, but too small for me.

Pesky curious cat. Fat, irritable, shits and eats a lot.

If you are interested in shipping them, I'd be interested in the Cycra guards. They would be spares for when I eventually break the ones on my bike, so if someone else has an immediate use, they trump me.
