It great to ride with you guys today. I ended up following Bobb and Jeff at hare scrambles training pace.

I'm getting old for this!

Hey guys, still lurking around pretty regularly but not posting much since I haven't been able to get out much with the 1 year old at home. Starting to heal up pretty good from a knee scope I had 3 weeks ago so I had to get out and play a bit today. Cut a little trail through the woods on my property only 1 acre :( and had some fun this afternoon while the little one was sleeping. Enjoyed my little bit of saddle time.

Watching you stomp it into gear gave me flashbacks of high school. Jimmy Ellis used to come by and do that to his Can-Am.

That dude with the KLR is George. I've been riding with him for a while. In his mind, that thing is a 125cc 2 stroke. Ride it like you stole it...
And there's another place in Chester that's a little more technical if anybody is interested for sunday.

Yeah I followed him around for a while and he was just slinging it between the trees and roosting out of the corners. He is NOT worried about dropping it and it is set up with all the crash bars so it fares well when he does.

I told him to get on the board as he WILL fit right in.

Lots of fun today. Feeling it now!!!

Are you talking about off of Chester road near the rail road tracks?

I know the feeling man! I have a couple little ones too, and squeeze rides in when I can. I haven't ridden dirt in a few years since I lived in Arkansas. Would like to try it again if I can avoid killing myself.

Thinking the same thing. Sort of. DR too heavy for regular dirt bike stand, for me to lift by myself anyway. I just want something small though. Like this:

I'd be up for tomorrow after lunch. Chuck also posted about potentially going tomorrow. Don't see being able to get away today. It is the wife's birthday.

Sounds good, we can shoot for tomorrow after lunch...We're up to our ears right now in Christmas decoration boxes, the kids are going wild. Gabriel, who just turned 7, has a tough time understanding that it's still four weeks away! (Shhh! A Tony Hawk BMX bike is already in the tool shed hidden under a tarp and my daughter's pink iPod touch 5 should be on the UPS truck soon! )
