Im going to try to ride Pachaug tomorrow also. Is anyone still meeting at the lot at 10? If so I'll tag along if you don't mind, I'm a C-level rider, done a few enduros, but I always hour out.

I was at Pachaug last weekend and did about a third of the loop, I got lost a few times, seaarched for the arrows in a few places and couldn't find them. Didn't see one other rider the whole time I was there. Conditions were great, just like they should be tomorrow.

I am not. Bailed out at the last minute, but there are a couple who will still make it. I just got home to a USPS box at my door with my fan kit and 13/50 final drive combo

Might "have" to do some late night wrenching after I put the kids to sleep. I wasn't expecting the stuff until next week so this was a nice surprise!

I know what you mean... It's a 2 hour drive for me (each way)

Have a great ride. I just finished swapping out sprockets and chain. You would think KTM would send you a chain the right length after putting everything together I had to take the chain off to cut a link off. On my second time linking the chain together I broke 2 clips and finally got it on my third and last clip Maybe I shouldn't drink and wrench...

I'll be there by 10:00. I assume the Spaulding/Dow parking lot.

Yeah, the Netra lot.
I woke up to a front flat Good thing I sleep like an old man and get up well before the sun. Bad part is the tire iron cut into the side wall and pulled up 3 nice flaps of rubber below edge of the rim. I check the inside of the tire and the iron didn't go thru but you know I'll be thinking about it the whole ride.

Got there at 10:15 and found a couple of Ridgelines, a Silverado and a 4Runner. Headed out but couldn't find many red arrows. I ended on some paved roads, back into the forrest and even ran into a couple of horse riders but ended back where I started after a 15 mile loop. It was fun but next time I'll be there on time to get it right and do the whole loop.

BTW, Google maps was wrong: it's not a 2 hour drive, it's a 90 minute drive
