KLX it is. Wasn't sure what you had planned, wanted to ask and make sure. I'm bad about bringing the wrong bike sometimes. If I'd just showed up on the KLX without asking it probably would have been a group of Stroms or GS's. Or something.

I'm not sure now though, I usually have to work Saturday's. Getting laid off tonight though so it's hard to say what job I'll be on by then.

TTR125 here. Street titled but not tagged yet. Give the word, I'll plate it and strap a bicycle headlight on.

Think that would work? A bicycle headlight/taillight? Not so much for visibility but for legality, it might be enough. Hmm... off to Wal-mart to look at lights.

That's exactly what I'd be interested in.
But, if your TW200 can hit 68mph, I'll still have trouble keeping up on my XL250. She tops out at an indicated 60mph & that's with the 41/15 tooth street spockets. (I run 14/48 when it's gonna be really dirty)

Borrow the HD again. Those hogs like mud right? lol

Speaking of TWs I want to sell a few of the school's bikes off. I only want to use them for 2 or so seasons so thinking about that cycle I need to move a couple of newer ones.

(I know, hard to follow, but I'd rather sell 7 and replace them next year than try to sell 14 of them next fall and replace them all in the spring of 2015)

2012 TW200. Used one season for the MSF class. A little beat up, but not as bad as you might think. White with black wheels. About 200 miles on them.

$2,999.95 +99 $doc, $15 title, & ($18.50 if you want a temp tag).....Plus applicable tax.

That is a nice amount off MSRP and substantially below cost.

nov 9th ride

So, where are we meeting for this ride on the 9th? If it doesn't get crazy wet out, i'm going to try out the S10. If it's soaked, then the KTM. Hopefully, I can get off work this sat.

PS, if anyone here is localish to Zanesville Norwich area, I have an area that has fresh cut trails over 100 acres. has some pretty steep hills. and a creek area to practice crossing. anyone interested, hit me up and we'll go tear it up.

I'll be surprised if folks don't jump on this.

It was a good thing you were holding me up!! You know how hard it gets to breath as you climb altitude? I needed the stops!!

Let's say north of Marietta. Probably easiest is a gas station called the Pit Stop at I77 exit 6, it's where SR821 crosses and very near SR60 as well. There is a Subway there. Address is: 3355 State Route 821, Marietta, OH 45750 (That address sucks if you're using Google maps, this one will get you closer: 75 Highland Ridge Road Marietta, OH 45750, the station is on SR821). If for some reason someone is driving and needs a place to unload/park, shoot me a PM and I'll give you my house address. It's only 3 miles from the exit. I'll let a few of you that are coming choose a start time, I was thinking 9:30-10.

For the ride, expect not as rugged as Tar Hollow overall. There are a couple similar sections, but more gravel. There will be a couple of creek crossings, water is usually on my boots in the deepest one, but not too dramatic. Course will vary based on rain and expected creek levels. Some will be a repeat of earlier this year.

Pace will be like most group rides I've been on: not real fast, plenty of regroups, we'll wait and help if someone gets behind. We'll grab food somewhere, I know of a couple options, one only takes cash.

I generally have a path in mind, but I'm open to changing it and fooling around a particular area if folks want.

I'm unsure about which bike I'll be on, but it will either be the WR250R or a KTM 450EXC.

If there is interest, I seriously would be willing to do a really little bike ride (TW and slower) around the first of December or just after T-Giving.
I ride gravel for a least a few hours every Sat or Sun afternoon, so just shoot me a PM and we'll ride.

Post up if a group gets together.

I'm going to try to make this. If so I will ride the 250. I'm not sure how close your planned route gets to Wayne but I believe the APV trails are open to bikes without the need to obtain a pass for Veteran’s day that weekend. Might make an interesting addition to the ride.

I miss you guys

I'd just like to be a girl a moment and say I miss you guys. You actually ride. And there's always riding to do.

I'm currently trolling multiple forums looking for new/more riding buddies and it's a pain in the ass.

*sigh*

That is all. Carry on.
