I finished the day on a front flat. I put some slime in when I got back to cabin and pumped it up to 50 PSI and let it set saturday night. It held air all night. Now I have the fun time of cleaning the freakn mess up and patching the tire. :(

So what did you think of mudfest 2013?

But ,hey I open for all ideas. Maybe near Ellettsville, Nashville or in or around some of the national forests or parks. I'm here to work but hope to get in a few rides in the week day evenings , since I usually drive back to GA for weekends.
Thanks in advance and as we say in Georgia..............Hey !
If you have a GPS u could check out previous years HNF rides.

I have a pdf file of day 2 adventure ride from last year's Bufalloe 500, if you want to print and cut for a route chart. It starts and ends at Stoney Lonesome MC club on SR46 between Columbus and Nashville.

It's official. My first bike and 4 stroke is a DRZ. Met up with LATJ and gave his a new home. Even though I'm a professional body builder he helped me load it. Thanks again! We made it home without any problems.

It will be tomorrow before I get into it much. With any luck I'll pass the permit test and be able to take it for a good spin. It's been a few years since I've ridden a bike so I'll have to take my time getting used to it before I get out and ride with you guys. I do look forward to it though and from the tag thread many of us will be riding in the same area.

What kind of oil do you guys run in these? Would rotella 15w40 be a good choice? I'm open for suggestions on good tires geared more for street also. First impression of the seat is it may have to go. If I need to ask these type questions in another area let me know because I have a ton.

Hey congrats Rusty!! Welcome aboard.
I've got some decent 50/50 tires here you can have if you want.
As far as technical info about the bike, get over to the DRZ400 subforum on thumpertalk. It's a wealth of info. ADV has a thread but it's all jammed into 1 thread.
As far as oil?? Ha! 12 people will recommend 12 different things and all swear by it.
PM me for my recommendation. I swear by it.

Is that the dead end road in the HNF Near Robertson Cemetery? Just guessing...I haven't made it there yet.

Yup! It was a good time. A few sloppy spots. Would be a real mess after a good rain but was fine today.

Stay out of the water puddles if you leave the road. They need to take down gates and dump less cement.

I bet you'll be "used to it" before you know. They say it's just like riding a bike.

I think they lie. My bike has more room. Plus you have to pedal it.
