Ride tomorrow

Hey guys, just thought I'd throw this out there...LCRP is having a ride day tomorrow sponsored by Slyfox (see the link below). I know a few of you are from around the Bedford/Bloomington area and I figured I'd let you know about it if you hadn't heard already. I'll be there probably before noon to ride for a few hours. Feel free to come out and ride. See you out there!

Central KY fall ride, Icebreaker imitation

There is an informal GPS guided ride in Central KY on 9/22/12 starting at 11pm. Woodsrat suggest I post on this thread so here you are.

No sign up, no fees. Free BBQ sandwiches and soft drinks at the end. As of now the list of riders is hovering around 20.

Mapsource says the route is about 150 miles. My Garmin 220 says it's 170. Expect 5 hours of riding plus pit stops. There is a little gravel, maybe 5 miles total. Possibly a puddle to cross if it rains. There's about a million curves and half that many turns from one road to another.

RSVP me if you plan to come so we can have enough food.

Here's the link to the original thread which also contains info on getting the GPS data. If you don't have a suitable GPS, it's likely you can fall into a group who does.

Hoosier Nat'l Forest

Stumbled on this article from 1971 in an old AMA rag. Starts on pg 35 if the link fails to hit the right spot.

http://books.google.com/books?id=ffY...enduro&f=false

Link hits it right. I thunk it's interesting that they use our forest we are (unlawfully) banned from as the poster boy for the story.

Why u sell?


Damn just bought a 2011 DRZ400S. A little newer and bigger bike for a little more cash but man, I probably would have went for the WR! My story, day late and a dollar short.

Good Luck..............

Smokey mountain riding

Just got back from a trip to the smokies. Trailered the BMW down and my brother rented a dual sport from gsm moto rental. Good folks. Got a great route from them and rode around 225 miles first day. Hit the dragon. And cherohola hwy. wow what scenery! Rained second day and my butt was sore from the day before we headed home. Highly recommended trip. Stayed in a cabin in Townsend. Cheap clean. A bit rough for parking though.

P.S. That really tight section right along the lake was ass-puckering on the KLR.

P.P.S Kenny, the Pirelli Scorpions are the best street-legal front tire for off-road use I've had on. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Great, I was going to shoot you a PM when I got on to see how it handled on the KLR. I love the one on the XR..took a bit to get used to the new turning of the front end...

Everyone missed out on a hell of a good weekend @ Redbird. Seems that there is more every week coming there now.

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.

I have the Pirelli Scorpions on my BMW G650gs and hate them on dry pavement. They are good on gravel and wet roads, but squirelly has heck on dry pavement. Will not buy them again-yuk.

Suspension is the same way, great suspension usually sucks when you get out of the terrain its setup for. Unless its set up for a wide range of things while losing a little everywhere. Or you pay someone a ton of money until theres no unwanted friction money can buy and bypass the compromise's

EDIT: I have been pushing really hard this summer trying to advance to the next level and changing tires frequently is part of that if you want to get to the "A" class. I only have one tire (thats worth anything) right now but if someone wants a pretty worn out tire for next to nothing let me know. I also have a handful of tires that are really worn out for everything but mostly road riding that someone can have if they want. Shoot me a PM if your interested.
