Sampling

Here's what some of the FR's are like.

I'd love to go explore some roads I haven't been on in about 30yrs.
I used to ride all over up there. Some of the roads were closed after the flood in '95. (sweet roads/trails)

I have a WeeStrom with Dunlop D607s and a DR-Z400 with D606s. I'm available most weekends.

That was the flood that crested over Rt. 29 in Madison County, no?

Love to join you on a ride sometime, but it's hard to get away with a young child in the house.

Yep, that was the flood. I was a paramedic at the time and was airlifted to a hill above Kinderhook to check on folks around there. There was a cool road that went from Fletcher around to Graves Mill that is now closed and another road that went through "Fish for Fun" that is now closed. Although, the later would make a nice early Sunday morning ride.
Sign.....what sign? I never passed a sign.

Ha! Figured as much. I sat around and looked for you for a few, but the road was a-calling.

Nice day for it!

Hey C-ville locals. I am sort of new to the area, I've been here about a year but have been pretty busy so haven't been around ADVrider much. I hope to have more time this fall so maybe I'll get a chance to meet some more local riders. If you've seen this (relatively recognizable airhead) around then you have seen me...



Also, I have a set of dunlop 606s that came off my, new to me, DRZ400e that I want to sell locally. They are low miles and not cupped at all nor are they dry or cracked. I'm out of town this weekend and cant remember the exact sizes but they are 21" and 18". I'll update with the widths when I get home. I also have shop space and I could be persuaded ( ) to help you spoon them on if that sweetens the deal. Shoot me a PM if you are interested and I'll get you my phone number.
