Dan, Mike, and myself managed to get the bikes dirty in Brunswick County before the rain set in. There is still a lot of water on the dirt roads. Some could easily have been mistaken for streams.


Thanks for the pointers Mike. I still have a lot to learn about the new bike.

Great ride today. I'm glad we were able to put it together. I'm envious of the Berg, and I also hate it at the same time because its going to cause me to spend money...lol. Glad it worked out for you Matt.

Anyone want to buy a well equipped DR...?

Thanks for the invite!

Had a fun ride, I dodged a ticket, a sinkhole and a trip to the ER so... good day! It felt good to open the 520 up and let 'er run. I like those roads when the sand is packed and the dust is gone. The ride home in a squall was white knuckle but I made it without becoming a hood ornament. Looking forward to the next ride, hopefully there will be some elevation involved.

Matt, you've got a real nice 'Berg just be sure to hang that new jacket opposite of the pipe!

I'm heading out to URE November 6th - 9th to primitive camp and ride the area. Mostly I just plan to relax and drink. All are welcome to join me for any part of the weekend. Perhaps if there's enough interest, we can make it like a mini, annual, local rally.

Sounds like fun, I'll know more when my schedule comes out but it shouldn't be a problem. Just be sure to keep the drink on the downlow or there won't be much relaxing! Are you camping off the big bike or bringing the DR up in the truck?

Holly Shelter is open

I rode out there this afternoon and saw no bikes, two trucks and a Mazda. The place was pristine with rain dampened gravel and no mud (on Lodge Rd). Big fun doing the ton on a gravel road!

Good to know. I'm glad you had a good ride, sorry I couldn't make it.
