And some will do all of the above.... Man I wish I didn't have all the stuff to do Saturday. I was telling my wife about all the plans that everyone else has for the day and she says "Boy, that sounds like a lot of fun. It's too bad you can't go for the whole day."

It sucks that I can't go for the whole day, but it is also great that she wishes I could. She rides too, so she would also like to do an all day thing like this.

Mothra! Wow. Been a while. Let me know whan you want to ride the swamp again. Either on a Sunday or after the hunting season is over.
It's been a while work has kept me from riding (other than commuting) since I last saw you. I changed my plans see you guys Saturday. Planning for no beers + riding.




Keith do you want to meet up on the way into Wilmington? Gas station at Fifty Lakes and NC 133 is where our paths meet.

I wish I could make it to meet some of you guys but I don't think I will be able to. We just moved into our new house in Rocky Point. Let me know the next time you guys ride.

Congrats on the new house.... I'll be sure to let you know when the next one happens.

So... as of right now it looks like this:

Looks like a good meet-n-greet happening. I look forward to meeting all of you tomorrow. I will be getting to Hell's Kitchen some time between 11:00-11:30. If you see a black Honda Nighthawk with Cortech soft saddle bags/trunk in a parking place, feel free to share the spot.

What type of bikes do you guys ride? Are you more street dualsport riders than dirt or what?

I have a 93 xr650l with full knobbies and I just got the wife a 2006 KLX250(she will not ride on the road with it yet).

I'm on an HP2 but will be street'N it with the 17"s on it for this ride. I could burn through my knobbies in one day with all this pavement riding.

I would like to know more about this trail too. You talk about a train wreck in the other post for this trail, what is that? I do lots of research and exploring old rail road grades.

Cool! Looks like I could ride the Sandhills Gamelands trails almost all the way to Laurinburg and then pick that up. It looks similar to what I ride in the Game lands.

I have a '96 Nighthawk and a '96 Savage. My "dream" bike has alwys been a R1200GS.....until I saw the first pics of the F800GS.... Now I may have a more attainable dream. Worsst case I will "settle" for a new KLR. I can't wait to be able to go off the pavement.

BigMaggot has taken me through a small bit of the game lands, it was way more powder sand than what is on the RobCo.

Yeah, it is a very fun trail, I try and ride a bit of it everyday
