Nah, I'll be back home in Pleasants Co Sunday. I don't get back here til late in the evening Sun. I doubt I'll bring the 300 back though. I hate leaving it in Charleston, I know several of ya'll would be glad to keep it for me, but I ride more on the weekends when i'm home than the week days I'm down here.

Thanks I know where Reno Raceway is, but I live on a pretty descent sized farm and ride mostly my own trails, once in a while I come down here and ride the single track out CC and I've rode behind AOMC a time or two before. Are the trails behind AOMC still open?

I didn't know there were any trails behind AOMC.

I use to live in Marietta and Reno Raceway was about a mile from my house. Spent a lot of time there and Fly MX park.

I have not been out CC yet. After the skid plate comment I feel as though my bike may be under dressed at the moment.

I guess if the tires don't have enough traction I can tear them up. Therefore the need for new ones.

You'll be fine out CC without a skid plate as long as you stick to the double track and aren't flying so much you 1) throw a rock so hard it cracks your case or 2) ground out your suspension as you pass over a rock. I rode my 300 yesterday sans skid-plate on both single and double track and I lived. There used to be (last year) some pretty sweet single track behind AOMC but I'm not sure if the ST cult rode there this year or if they stayed over on CC or what.
