Morning!
New member (and rider)
I live in Clarksburg/Bridgeport, moved here about a year ago from Berkeley County in the Eastern Panhandle. Bought a nice used Yamamule TW200 last summer and I'm getting back into riding after 20 years. The little mule is a blast (it's my dirt scooter) and I commute back and forth to work on it. I've only been offroad on a power line ROW and used it to fetch my portbale treestand on my buddies property. Brings back memories of blasting around in the clay pits in my youth.

Looking forward to talking to everyone.



It was sure nice to ride that bugger and get 70mpg when diesel was $5.00 a gallon last summer!



I put a cycleracks rear rack on it and strapped my Molle main pack on the back. Fits like a glove, and surprisingly I can fit two suitcases of brew in there.. :)

Thanks! I could stand to ride with some experienced folks that know the area. Hopefully this summer I'll acquire another bike (in addition to the TW) that will be a little easier to maintain the speed limit on Rt. 50, lol.

We looked around Jane Lew when we moved.. Couldn't find any property on the market, so we're biding our time in Bridgeport until the 'place' shows up that we want to really root down at.

Checking in from outside of Marietta, Ohio.
Name's Aaron
Bike is 1999 Yamaha ttr250 converted to dualsport/baja designs kit. Have had the bike almost since new, just converted it last fall.
Mainly been riding around Marietta area lately, havent been out much since the weather is cold.

Been riding since I was 7years old. Also into Quads, drag racing, etc etc check the profile I gues.

I should be out and about more often as the weather improves. Look forward to seeing some of you out there! I probably wont make the spring fling though, got some other things coming up and iam not real sure how free my weekends will be Looks fun though!

Wanna thank WFOhillbilly for giving me this site address, seems like a pretty cool place!
See ya all around hopefully!

I'm pretty sure I came across a few WV ADV folks today on Scales / Stemple Ridge road.

I was on this wearing a yellow helmet...
