Yea been thinking of getting a thumper or lighter v-twin to ride in the dirt. Although the 990 is not really that big to me (6'2" 245lbs), I have been making it more of a multi tool bike (road/fire trails/dirt roads) and would not be the best choice for single track stuff.

Vague plans are fun!!!

Terrain will be as little slab as possible, gravel, dirt, single track. Camp at night, lots of and good times to be had. We can be a rowdy bunch and have a lot of fun together. That was more of a warning than anything else.
April 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th would work for me!

Or

April 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th!

I might have my mits on a couple barn find Trail 70's if anyone is interested. No real details yet other than there are 2 bikes and one frame, been on a farm likely outdoors since the 80's

Going to get/look at them this weekend.

Thanks, it's a great bike! But, bills always win, so it needs to go so I can free up some fundage. Plus, I found an '83 Yamaha YZ490 cheap, possibly with a title! That will make a perfect match for my '83 Yamaha TT600!

Alright, dates have been set as well as a location. Campground to be determined. One guy has family down there, so we may camp on their land.

Let's go ride the Ozarks/Mark Twain National Forest around Ava, MO just southeast of Springfield.

Date April 15-19 (Thursday-Monday) I will be leaving Wednesday night after work and get as far as I can. Unsure if I am trailering or riding down (~450 miles). All depends if I am solo and/or have SM wheels I can fit a two total on my trailer and that is about it, three and my Vitara will hate me more than it already does.

Givens are fun, limited sleep, lots of beer consumed, great riding

Unknowns are routes, showers, pee times, lunch times, dinner times, water breaks you get the point. It's pointless to try to plan anymore out than we already did.
