Will let you know, I see your posts in the Raleigh, Fayetteville thread..will hit you up when you return back..I will be living, smack dap in the middle of Pinehurst on #1..and will be riding into work when weather permits..you can probably answer a question I have about riding in on Morgonton rd rather than Manchester..it is dirt for about 15 miles I think..how nasty does it get?

I did a short ride yesterday to explore some old cemeteries buried in the woods. I was severely mistaken about the terrain here. You guys have all the loose sand that my neck of NC has, and you have the added bonus of wet red clay. After nearly crashing for the 5th time, I decided to head back to the hardball. I have a lot to learn about wrestling a 400lb dual sport around in the sand and slip, and learning it in the middle of nowhere without anyone around or even knowing where I was riding didn't seem like a smart idea.

I did find one neat bit of history though. A copperhead sighting right at the entrance to this kept me from exploring too much.

Stop by the ranger shed on main post and get a proper map. Going straight in on Morganton is pretty easy, but can land you in a impact area really quick if you don't know the trails. Oh, and don't get caught, and don't do it in hunting season. The whole reservation is hunted during deer season.

Running the Manchester 500 isn't bad depending on when you do it. I'm normally heading through there around 0500 and things are pretty clear. Traffic picks up around 0545. It is always busy in the afternoons. When I take the trails, I generally do it in the afternoons.

Hey we getting together this Thursday to eat, drink, and listen to Trent, David, Wayne and possible Bill tell lies about their trips. Haven't nailed down a time or place yet.

The Teresa's on Boy Scout Rd always seems to be a great place; huge front porch we can sit on and make all the noise we want...

Seems like I read a while back that some guys from this group were going to Silverton, CO. Is that the trip mentioned in the quote above?
