Challenging Roads/Trails

Any suggestions for the most challenging roads or trails between H'Burg and Brandywine? I have some friends coming down in October and they are a bit more experienced than I am. I'll need something tougher than Dunkle Hollow to keep them entertained.

Thanks

Have you ever actually seen it?

Thundercunt is actually quite dear to my heart, with all the loving work and care I've put into her, beating her with a crowbar under the flame of an oxyacetylene torch.

I've been working on her for ever two years now, and it's been ridable for almost a year and a half---well, if you call the first release "ridable". I'll never say that she's the epitome of beauty in home engineering, or anything like that. But I honestly do take pride in how far she's come, how much she'd been improved in that time. Yes, when I first brough her out, she handled terribly, the rebar and plumbing bent like hell, and there was no stability. I know that's how people will always think of her--honestly, I kinda like that, as people seem to assume she's the same terrifiying death trap as she always was, and them are genuinly impressed when I make it through a ride alive. Truth is, I've spent hundreds of hours working on it to make it more user-friendly, and above all, safer.

There's an "experienced riders only" section of the free OHV area just north of 33 in the forest...can't remember the name of it right now, but I placed a VDST tag there once...

Thanks Skippii, I didn't even know that was there. This sin't the same as Taskers Gap right?

Is it possible that you've been a closet KLRista all along?

Ever consider Wal Mart a "Parts Store"?

Got Goodwill on speed dial?

Don’t bother locking up your bike because you know its so ugly no one would want to steal it?

Whenever you see a BMW bike you wonder if the one set of luggage they have cost more then your entire bike?

Not everyone makes the grade to become a KLRista. There is a test. A real KLRista knows that "Doo tools"..... aren't for walking the dog.

Go a little bit south and run 162 from the coal road to the BRP then over to montebello and shoe creek area (meadow road 826).
http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Un...4&vpsrc=6&z=16

Note that from "A" to "B" and "E" to "F" are the crazy parts and from "F" the road keeps going...


Or, the stone camp road out of union springs up to dunkle is fun.
Or, go up long run road and find the rocky run ORV trails. This is the one skippii mentioned, different than taskers.
I've done them on the drz.

If you are going to be in for the BWDR we could ride 'em then.

I haven't had the pleasure of seeing TC in person. Bring it by sometime. I'm also glad to hear it's not the death trap it once might have been. Along with the hundreds of hours, perhaps you might spend a few tens of dollars on her to make her safer still.
