What do you think of these signs?
Very very cool. How long does it take to get to the area from Indy? What type of riding? Single track or more ATV width stuff?

Kinda pricey and I may be the only adult in a class of 6 year olds, but if I learn anything that avoids one injury it will be worth it.
I sent an email about availability. I'm interested in it too. Paulo johnson357 and Tpar can attest to my horrible off road skills.

Yes Chris is Awesome! Great support, down to earth guy. Neduro from here ran his kit in Dakar a couple years ago and just ran it in Tureg (spelled wrong I'm sure) and he just got 2nd in that Rally. Ned is also on here and for you guys wanting to learn more he sells a Dual Sport riding CD, I have not seen it but heard good things. Not to mention all the other kits he has sold to Dakar and other rally guys. He is working on a new headlight shell that works with the Rigid Industries lights, you can see them in the vendor fourm.

Oh yeah, I'm down for heading south on Friday, I sure Nick has your number, maybe you could guide me to lots of gravel down that way.

Rode with Chris in Colorado a couple times. Excellent people. He was txtn me pics from M1K.

There's some gravel down here. Lets hit Moto and really open that thing up. Test the suspension. Or LCRP. I like riding the HNF but I honestly don't like screaming around the HNF.

Sounds good...suspension re-check with the kit on there is a good idea....do they have good whoop section.....Nick sounds like the DR will be the uniform of the day.

Might be down for LCRP on Sat or Friday....it's all good just need seat time.

Hmmmm. No whoop section. There's enough there to test suspension though.

Johnson357, if it's whoops you want, you should consider Badlands in Attica, IN. they've got 3 or 4 sections over 100 yards long each. Most riders there could show you where to find them if you don't know the place. Plus it would be sand, though I don't know if it's similar to the M1K sand you'll be in or not. It's soft sugar type sand at Badlands, probably finer and harder at the M1K? The other advantage to the place is that it handles the rain / wet / melt very well. it's always rideable there. But I don't want to pull you away from riding with the south boys, just throwing out the thought for you to chew on.

I second that, big time. I have done the Shane Watts Dirtwise riding school. It was excellent. Best if you're already a moderate dirt rider before going, but a newbie would benefit also. I think it was $300 for 2 days. I still refer back to it regularly and his teaching style is top notch, very logical approach. And watching him demo the skills to perfection....amazing and worth half the price of admission right there!
