I checked the site, it may be doable. There is also another group heading to hatfield that weekend.

Hey folks. Looks like I'm settling on a deal to buy an 03 Tiger fairly soon. If that goes through, I've got an '01 DR650 with about 3,900 miles I'll put in the sale / trade section. I'm gonna get a smaller trail oriented bike, like a 250 something or a DR350 for beating around. The DR650 is great, but with a Tiger in the garage I would rather have a second smaller bike.

Nothing much in the way of farkles, but it's got new tires, a Corbin seat (the IMS version) and a nice cycleracks rear rack. Just thought I'd pass that along here to the locals first.

And I can't wait to get that Tiger...

Yeah the Tiger and the T-dub would be a nice combo.
Personally I think the t-dub is different than anything out there so it's not like you have two of the same kind of bike, unless you buy two of em.

WV dual sport in May??

Hi all!
If there is a better thread for posting this question, please let me know!

I'm kicking around the idea of heading into West Virginia after the Eastern Rendezvous in May. I'm interested in doing as much dirt riding and camping as possible in a 5 or 6 day period.

What are your thoughts on WV dual sport trip in May??
Too wet / muddy?
Too cold?

I know very little about the area so I was considering just sticking to the Hatfield McCoy trail system.

Will I miss the good stuff if I do this??

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Dave

That's dedication for ya.
