I'm dragging a bunch of my track day hooligan buddies in to the off-road thing this season. I'm looking forward to more evening festivities. Keep me updated on your riding plans.
That's awesome Scott. Knowing what you can do on a GS, looking forward to seeing you tear it up on a smaller bike.

I'm looking to get a seat concepts seat too. But I don't feel like putting it together either. Can you keep us posted who gave you best deal?

They'll put it together for you if you send them your seat. I'm actually thinking about doing this too.

Yeah I read that but if I can save money on shipping and not having to wait as long that would be nice.

Riding last week

Just some video of riding Oceana last week. I was messing around with a helmet mount and a chest mount. I gotta figure out how to stabilize the chestcam.

I told him it was really easy and an average rider should be doing back flips at the end of the first day. We'll start out with the kick starter and move on to Big Air after that.

You'll have fun at NCMP. I wish that place was closer!

Went out there a few months ago with Xylowerks.

There's the whole mx thing and then miles of woods trails to boot. There's a nasty hill climb off one of the trails. You can get there from the intermediate mx track, which is about all I know (only been there once.) One of the toughest hill climbs I've done. Those new KTM's would like it! Bring your gopro!

Morgan's Corner

Headed out to Morgan's Corner Proving Grounds, formerly River City MX park, formerly Morgan's Corner MX track, to let my boys run free on their new (to them) bikes! My 8 yr old got a DRZ110 from Santa, and my 13 and 15 yr olds share a CRF230F. I'll be on my old smoky XR650L. Come on out if you you can. Only an hour south of Va Beach!

Cheers,
Lance

Hey all. I'm new to riding off road around here. Do you have a GPS track for that? Or at least the trailhead? Didn't know there was anything like that around here. When you say Oceana, you mean NAS Oceana?

Thanks! Looks like a fun ride.

No one will give me a price in advance. I think I'll take it to that place at the beach, since people have had good luck with them
