I'm in West Lafayette, but it wasn't me.

Have seen a few more DS bikes here lately, some are bound to be college kids.

I hope so, I haven't had a chance to see if KTMs work in the rain.

Better to find flaws close to home...

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Head down to Tellico Outfitters in Tellico Plains and they'll give you more routes than you can ride in a week;

Some pretty good maps and ideas over here;

Also look at Balsam Mountain rd. on the far east side of the park. Really anything in that area is great except I-40.
Thanks for the help! This will be my first trip down with the bike and we are only hanging out for a few days hopefully the weather will cooperate!

We'll see Tuesday just how much you ride. Just saw on the news that we have a potential of getting 6 inches of rain on Saturday, I don't know if Redbird would even qualify as mud if they get that much. Please don't destroy the single track, if you do please plan a day to help fix the trails.

I have been to trail clean ups @ Redbird when there were only 4 of us doing it in piss pouring rain half the day.

Thanks for trying to step up and give me trail riding procedures though. Been there probably as many or more times than most on here (ok except for Kenny).

We may or may not ride on Monday depending on the amount of rain we get though.

Have a good time riding the Hatfield McCoy trails they are some of the best I have ridden,watch out for the black diamond single track it is no joke. Tpar1220 and I rode there last year at about this time. I guess my only gripe is that they did away with the 3 and 5 day trail passes,but even at $50 you still get your moneys worth.

BTW those trails have really changed those little towns,they have really grown since the trails opened up I didnt even recognize Gilbert when we pulled in. I rode there 1st organized ride back in 95 when I first got out of the Army,took a brand new XR600 down there. It didnt look new when we left 3 days later,the organized "ride" turned into 3 days bar banging racing........good times
