Anybody in the RVA area have a rivet type master link for a KLR? 520 o-ring type chain, probably RK brand...It's OEM type replacement.

If the next weekend, the 26th-27th, works for everyone, I'll see if I can be free. Got to warn you though, WV gets pretty chilly at night in late October. I'm talking in the high teens to low 20's at night. But if you remember, we did the Black Ice Ride last year, so I'm pretty sure I'm game.

So once again, everyone chime in for which is better, the 19th or the 26th? Guess we'd need someone who has the roll charts or tracks for the S500 too. I don't have those.

I have several roll charts from the S500. Also the maps that came with them. I will see what I have.

Either date is good for me.

Pplasm, I have complete rout chart/map sets from 2008, 2009, & 2010. For 2011 I have everything but the Sunday map. We should probably pick one of years that we both have copies of.

We would need to know who wants charts and who wants GPS tracks. If I dont have GPS tracks for the year we pick, I can make them. I also have all of the gas stations in the area and the restaurants in Brandywine and Franklin WV as GPS waypoints.

One thing to remember is NVTR (WATR?) can occasionally get the Forest Service to open closed roads just for their event. So we need to check the route we use for normally closed roads. Also, some of the roads are only open from Oct 1st to Jan or Feb. I can call the Forest Service in early Oct. to make sure any roads on our route are open.

Im still open for any weekend in October.

They also get permission to ride across some private property. I suspect you could ride through without repercussions if you were slow and quiet.

I will go whatever weekend is open for everyone, but late October will most likely be freezing. Snow could even be expected by then. I have no heated gear, and will almost definitely be riding my bike out.

Actually it shows up as open for travel on the MVUM. My theory is the Forest Service has an easement for the road and one of the owners wants to close it. So lets not give him any ammunition. I have it marked on my GPS with a scull and cross bones.

There's another road with gates but that's not in the forest and is a WV state road. So it's like when riding out west, if the gate is closed, close it after you pass through.

Forest Service, National Parks (USA), Corps of Eng., etc. rarely, if ever, use easements. Far too much open interpretation of what constitutes as "use". If anything, the Forest Service owns the property, and an easement is granted to the adjoining property owner for ingress/egress.

There are roads in the NF which are designated "Hunters Access" and are only open during designated hunting seasons. Gated and locked during all other times. This may be what you are referring to. Most are open starting in October for the deer hunting season.

I've also talked with the DOT here in Pendleton County on several occasions. There are lots of roads in the county that are legally state maintained roads, but run thru private property. The property owners marker them as if they were off limits, but they are not, as long as you stay on the road. The owners may NOT lock the gates, but may gate them. So if it is on the list of county maintained roads, it it perfectly legal to open the gate and let yourself thru. I do it all the time. On a few occasions I've had to notify the DOT of locked gates too. I have a map of all county maintained (and hence open) roads in Pendleton County.

I try to ride as many roads like this as I can each year, because there is a weird ruling that if a landowner says no-one has accessed the road in "x" amount of time, they can petition to have the road "closed" and then it becomes their private property and they can lock it. I try not to let that happen.

oh, Chuck and Todd are here. It is a beautifully cool morning up here in the mtns.

Jeff, I apologize for misunderstanding you and therefore looking into shifting the weekend. For some reason I thought you were available later, but just not before. Again, I am sorry.

Repair Question for a 1990 BMW K75S

Ok. Post whatever you want here Richmond folks, but I'm mostly interested in gaming, electronics, cool places for tags, hiking spots, and any motorcycling related stuff like repair questions/tips/gear etc...
I am not in Richmond, but have a repair question for a 1990 BMW K75S. I am looking at buying a this bike, but it has some issues. When you try and pull the clutch back it will not budge, also I when you start the bike I am not certain if it is the final drive or something else, but it sounds like something metalic is spinning towards the rear of the engine. Any thoughts or suggestions or should I just walk and keep looking.

Thanks,
