I would love to go riding tomorrow but I already made plans. By the way wvdirtbiker and I are planning a ride over in Pocahontas County the 23rd or 30th of August you're more than welcome to come along, for that matter any one can come. The more the merrier.

I've got a ride a week later in Colorado and Utah so I'll probably bow out. I appreciate the invite though.

I'm thinking maybe meeting somewhere around Durbin or Bartow and going up the West Fork of the Greenbrier to Glady. From there over the mountain and past Laurel Fork Campground, Sinks of Gandy and to Spruce Knob.
We could backtrack a little from there past Laurel Fork Campground and come out near Thornwood on Rt-28.
From there, about a mile of pavement then up past Buffalo Lake to Blue Grass, VA then over to Rt-250 to Top of Allegheny and back to Bartow via gravel roads.
The ride should be 110 to 120 miles on about 80% gravel roads.

Haha I know... It's going to be rough but someone needs to do it.

In all seriousness, one of our 4 man crew broke both of his wrists riding about a month ago and is out. If I keep pushing my luck I'll probably end up in the same boat. Figure I might as well take it easy for the next few weeks. If anyone wants to ride gravel roads at 20 mph feel free to send me a PM...

Nope, heard good things about them.
Going with one for the front of the LC4 soon, I like the Big Blocks but they don't live long.

I'm gonna have to pick up a new set of tires in the next few weeks. I feel like the Trail Wings are really holding me back on the bike.

I'm thinking of going with the Terraflex II on the back, haven't decided on a front yet.
