A friend of mine just bought a street legal XR650R today so that will add yet another one of us. He already has a KTM 250XC so he knows how to ride. lol

When are we all heading out for a ride???

Best of luck with the back. Take it easy and make sure you make a full recovery before getting on the bike. Let us know how your progress is :)

Hey Macuser, I am in Calgary and frequent the foothills of southern Alberta at every opportunity. Even yesterday!

Thanks for the support. So far I seem to be healing up well. This brace sure makes ordinary life a pain in the ass. Beats the hell out of what could have happened though. I'm looking forward to riding again, but I'm going to be timid, and my wife is reluctant to let me out again, but she knows that it's what I live for - she'll come around...

Good to hear you are sounding upbeat and positive about life and riding :)

I remember you Andreas. You got yourself some new wheels, eh? Unfortunately for me, I just sold my DR. Sad to see it go, but when one leaves, another one finds it's way in somehow. Hopefully we can hook up for some more dirt riding this summer.

yeah there are quite a few of us that ride out of the Calgary area. I've had great luck meeting people on the ADSMC board but last year there was a falling out between 2 club members and the board split into 2. one is ADSMC and the other on is alberta dualsport. I hope to see some kind of reconciliation this year, but we shall see.

Either way, if yo're looking to meet up with people you should get onto one or both of those boards. we had a pretty good weekly trail ride out at mclean creek on weeknights and lots of fun weekend day and overnight rides. if you like long distance, look into the Cypress ride.. it usually happens early in the season and is a good icebreaker.

hope to see you out this year,
