I was out there today, the rocky trails with the steps in them leading up to Hell Hollow Road were like mini water falls. I got a late start and only did half the loop but still had fun in a cold sort of way........................

Yea I like that section of the course too. I find it pretty amusing the rocks and ledges that my old DRZ can pull my fat ass up in that section of the loop. I find it even more amusing that the same bike can take me home on the road at 50+MPH. The DRZ may not be even close to the world's best or meanest dual sprots bike but for knocking around the Pachaug Loop I have no complaints with mine.

I am glad I rode that day with this snow storm, it might be a while before I get out there again.........

I was thinking the same myself. We had a ton of snow in the yard and most of it has all gone now.

Anybody know how the trails are - are they rideable ?

I have a new headlight, speedo, fender, (crash victims) chain, sprocket, and front tire on order.

Still have to grease up / replace bearings and get an oil change on my shocks.

Have cabin fever bad!! Should be ready to ride in a couple of weeks!
