Rode Hard Labor Creek with the enduro krewe today, it's definitely a great place for you fastburn types. A lil more open than I prefer, more like a harescramble track, but definitely still a dirtbike trail as opposed to 4x4 dirt roads. Met Dexter - part owner and operator, 72 year old fella on a 300XCW.
This is the main shack where he'll make ya sign the waiver an take yer dineros. Some of yall may recognize these fellers


Full amenities available, including a bike wash station!

Sorry Vic, can't make Karick tomorrow. I think I got this ball rolling and feel bad about bailing. Will see you next time.

And as you can see below czonian is Jon from the Hutton ride. Wayne hasn't posted up yet.

Headed to Karrick Lake north in about ten minutes.

Hope to see a few of you there.

Pewter Suburban, DR350.

The Duke is practically in a class by itself and fine for commuting or hooliganism --it is only other bike I have considered buying lately... Since you still have the 530, get the Duke and let me have a little saddle time!!
All is well job has been keeping really busy..I've been lurking on here, you know me I dont have much to say most of the time!

The duke is at the top of the list for sure as well as two others the nc700 and Cb500x. Bike will mainly be commuting from C-view to Eglin and the occasional beast rides.

Hoping to hit the dirt in the coming weeks!

I just got home from a morning at Blackwater. Vic led us BW noobs on a 3.5 hour, 50 mile loop of fun and adventure.

Only a few falls, no real damage done and everybody left w/ a smile.

Great meeting some of the guys this morning. Look forward to learning the area a little better.

........and my 20 year old DR350 did just fine, thank you very much.

Anybody know where I can buy some talent?

I need one of those too!! And some synthetic blinker fluid.

Fortunately, I've already installed the high performance muffler bearing.

Of course on the DR, it really doesn't matter since it's the be all end all dualsport motorcycle.

I would love a dr350. Unfortunately I can never find one. It might be the perfect dual sport for me. I love the DR650, but it can be heavy at times

I hear ya'. I've had a DR650 (R_bin has it now) and it is a great bike. I just wanted something a little lighter for the trails. I don't have the skills or the strength for a 650 in the tight stuff.

And you are right, clean DR350's are hard to come by. It's far from perfect, but at my advanced age and modest talent level, it works just fine.....
